Default UConnect disappointment

2010 Ram Crew Cab, has the UConnect button, but did not have the hands free installed when I took delivery.

Part of the deal was that I wanted the hands free phone and a trailer brake unit installed. The dealer put in an aftermarket brake control that I'm not real happy about under the dash because it wouldn't fit in the oem control space. I guess I can live with that.

The hands free mic is installed on the left window frame, which again I can live with. My question is what in the hell does the UConnect feature do? I can make and receive calls, but the voice commands seem useless. Why would I use a voice command (on the dash) button to change the radio source when I have a button on the steering wheel? There is no way to stream music over bluetooth??

Am I just not understanding this, or is the Uconnect nothing more than a hands-free phone with a bunch of useless features?

sounds like the dealer stuck you with crappy aftermarket junk.

Yeah, that sounds a bit cheap. I've had UConnect before and I really didn't use it much. Never did take the time to figure it out.

Do a search and you'll find a lot of posts on Uconnect. Useless...

i have the 2009
your brake controller should be here, on the factory/dealer install
http://mrtruck.net/dodgepic/dod150.jpg

i don't think that i have the steering wheel control, i push the uconnect button on my dash/radio, after i select radio, nav, or what ever, i push the image with the face & tell it what i want it do, like radio i push that button & say Nascar, the radio repeats, i say yes & it changes stations, if i select NAV, i tell it where i want to go
