So maybe I am not configuring my phone right, do you know if the USB port in there is only to play music loaded on the phone/ipod? I was trying to use it for Pandora and another app I use that streams my iTunes library, I don't have my songs stored on the phone itself.
I got the apps to work via Bluetooth but didn't care for the sound quality. Hmmm.
Let there be no doubt that you CAN DEFINITELY use your iPhone and Android as a media library source when connected via USB cable. Connect it to the port nearest the driver's seat as the OP said.
When connected it'll show as MTP above the SD card in the source device listing onscreen
If you have a large amount of tracks, it will take a while to index.
We are all having random issues with the UConnect. I think it's a great system, however reliability is a problem. It definitely does not like starting on cold mornings, here in Alberta.
My dealer tells me there's a magic update in the pipeline and arriving 'soon'. I believe him to be talking crap but we'll see, this has been the case for 6 weeks.
Every now and then i need to do a soft reset (hold down Tune and Volume knobs for a few secs) and it usually brings things back online. Once a week or so it'll refuse to connect anything and just freezes until you turn off the engine and leave it for a few minutes.
