UConnect iPhone Help
I know this subject has been beaten to death but I wanted to throw my issue into this to see if anyone has found a workable solution.
I have a 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 (Canadian Model)
8.4A Uconnect running version 14.05.03
iPhone 5s with iOS 7.1
Selected 'Show Notifications' under the UConnect connection
Here is the situation I have;
1. No problems pairing
2. Phonebook downloads completely
3. Phone works
4. Can go into messaging (can't create which I know is a limitation)
5. Can stream music through bluetooth
What I still haven't been able to find a solution for is not receiving any audible notifications for emails or texts, etc. though while I am streaming music I get the sounds
I contacted UConnect and they advised that my phone and iOS are compatible but that I need to contact the dealer if its still not working.
I also tried a solution I found elsewhere describing to pair as normal but then through the iPhone change sounds from UConnect to iPhone through the pull up menu (sorry, the official name slips me now), which I tried and still nothing.
Is the workaround that I need to stream and pause the song so that the sounds continue or has someone actually figured this out?
I know there are issues with iPhone but I've read enough to know there are issues with various other phones as well so I don't really need to hear how bad the iPhone sucks!
Thanks in advance!
