Great info here! Mine got all locked up when I tried to use the USB/Cable for my iphone, gave me some error like can't use usb audio with bluetooth etc. So I did the reset, couple hours later it was back to the Ram theme on the audio screen.

I'm not going to try that again, I thought they told me I could use my USB iphone cable and play music that way but it doesn't seem so, even when I turn off bluetooth, maybe I'm missing something.

According to the Uconnect website you should be able to play music from your phone using a USB cable. I don't have my Ram yet so I can't confirm this but I'm sure some other owners can.

I can play music off of my iPhone through a USB cable. However, there are 2 USB ports in the center console. You have to use the one that is closest to the driver's seat. The USB port on the passenger side appears to be only for charging a device. I've never gotten any sort of error message, though, even with it plugged in the USB port and Bluetooth on.

Thanks I just went and checked was excited that I may have had it in the wrong port, sadly I didn't.

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.

Other times it will charge and not play music, and other
Times it will not charge... POS!

LOL, when it does play music from your iphone is it just music actually loaded on the phone or can you use it with apps like Pandora etc.

I don't have a Ram but I'd assume that the USB port would be used to play music stored on the phone. Not to stream audio for apps like Pandora, etc. Does the Ram have one of those auxiliary input jacks - looks like a headphone jack? You could stream Pandora using something like that.

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.
