The choosing of the "Dock connector" was a force play that Apple was trying to make and have streaming audio the priority audio output, where you can direct the audio to the Apple tv, speakers, or any other Bluetooth device that the phone is paired to. Chrysler wants the USB connection to be the priority controller because you're in a "Hands Free environment", so if you're in BT mode and you plug the iPhone into the docking cable (with the update) Uconnect will automatically click onto the "docking" mode.
The waiting during the reading mode, will happen the first time that the phone is plugged into the docking cable because Apple is sending all the meta data to Uconnect to put into a library. This time frame will be different depending on the amount of material that you have on the iPod / iPhone.
Build date was 5-11. The uConnect module date is 2011/04/15 with an "AK" part number. Does the bulletin you referenced apply, or will the newer TSB apply?
