I'll be glad to.
I used the button on the back of the right side of the steering wheel yesterday and it went from radio source to the media usb. But voice response, no way.
I have went to the uconnect site and printed off the "how to" use the voice command information but it is not helpful in changing from one source to another. More explicit instructions would be nice.
Now going from a source to anything except media it seems to work OK... using just one word like navigation, phone, or climate.

I Just picked up my new Ram a few days ago and I have to tell you that Dodge's uconnect is way better than F--d's system. Their system use to drive me nuts...I have know idea what language you need to speak to make it work but you would say "call home" and it would come back with something like "calling Pizza hut"...completely out to lunch. The uconnect system is very good compared to the competition.

Mine was built in July 2014, I have owned it for 1 month. I noticed that once on startup, I got a message indicating that both park sense and ESC were disengaged (they were not actually disengaged). This has not repeated yet. Also, I find that if I mute the radio before shut down, on next power up it is no longer muted. And if I mute the radio with the key turned to ACC, after starting the engine it is no longer muted. This does not seem logical, but the folks at the service desk tell me it is normal and I should turn the volume down.
I think it is very strange to have a radio that you can't turn off!

Thumbs down canceled uconnect

2013 Ram, had problems from day one. Most are already mentioned in previous post, locking up/having to re-boot the system/hours on the phone with reps, etc.. After the 6 month trial I dropped it, didn't have it in my 2004, don't miss it.

I have had my new to me 2013 RAM (26,600 when I bought it) about a month. The other day the stereo started the un-commanded shut off, turn on, phone no longer paired. I have an appointment at the Dealer on Friday. We will see what happens........

Went to the dealer today, they had a software update to address the un-commanded shut off/reboot issue. They also flashed the PCM. The stereo rebooted 6 times on the way there (20 min drive) It has not hiccuped since. Maybe they fixed it. Time will tell. Good experience with the dealer.
