I sync'd my iphone easily the first time and streams music and calls with zero issues, have'nt tried to upload pics or anything to the hard drive so have yet to plug in the usb.

As long as the media button is pressed when you plug in usb it should pick it up no problem, obviously you cant plug in a usb while having blue toothenabled because you cant push two inputs to one source but that is just common knowledge.

One of my buddies was going to take his truck in for service because it would'nt play music from his phone, he was trying to play media through his radio. After 4 weeks I showed him the media button then viola itunes was playing fine through the radio.

the crappy part is now that it is playing there is no random or shuffle button for the ipod controls. All it will do is play your list alphabetically. when you have alot of songs this sucks....

OK, so I just upgraded my radio from the RES to the RBZ in my 2010 Dodge Ram Quad. While upgrading the radio, I added the UConnect Module/Harness as well as the OEM iPod Integration Harness.....

The UConnect phone works like a charm (and yes, I had to go to Dodge to have them update my Sales Code so the UConnect would work)

My questions are:

1. I have Bluetooth connected where the phone works, but it will not stream music via Bluetooth from my iPhone 4 (won't stream Pandora or iTunes). On a side note, my wife has a 2011 Dodge Durango with a RBZ head unit, and I can stream music via Bluetooth to her radio.....What am I missing?

2. I can hook my iPhone 4 up to the Integration Harness and it will play Pandora through the speakers, however, I have NO volume control through the head unit. If I disconnect the Integration Harness, and just use it through the AUX outlet on the front of the head unit then it works fine. What's the issue?

3. I can hook my iPhone 4 up to the Integration Harness and can control iTunes through the radio just fine. No issues there.

3. Random question about the RBZ radio.....it has different display modes....day time, night time, and auto.....why doesn't the "auto mode" automatically adjust the screen brightness to daytime or night time settings?

For those that are planning on getting the Uconnect SW update done, you will want to check what SW version your Uconnect module has. It will be either 43.1.10 or 43.1.30 and the PN will be 05064635AG. The module is located to the right of the glove box. You may need to remove the glove box to get a good view of it. The module will need to be SW version 43.1.10 in order for the update to work. The module will look like the one pictured below.
I have been working with another person and we have been able to get the update hosted and you could do it yourself. You download the update to a thumb drive and place iit in the USB connector for the iPod cable hook up.I will get with him and have him post the link to the update and a few instructions. He is mrjeep44. The update should take about 15 - 20 minutes to happiness. The update will work for a lot of Phone issues besides the Iphone / iPod issues. (this is the TSB 08-036-11) Also this is for the non Harmon radios, (RHB, RES, REQ, RBZ are non Harmon radios)

Alright guys, here are the instructions. As xsdbs said, you may want to check your SW version first, as this will save you some frustration. This update is not working at the moment on 43.01.30.

1) First check to see which version of software your Uconnect came with. On my Patriot the module is behind the glove box and is easy to get to. I am not sure how easy this is to access on other vehicles.

Look at the SW number on the module. If you have SW 43.01.10, this update should work for you (If you have 43.01.30 the update is not currently working, so hold off until another fix is out). This is where you find the SW number:



2) Download the file:
For US mid-large vehicles (Wrangler, Durango, Grand Cherokee, Ram, Town & Country van), download this file
For US small vehicles (Compass, Patriot, Caliber, 200) download this file

For Euro large vehicles, download this file
For Euro small vehicles, download this file

3) Put this file onto an empty thumb drive

4) Plug the thumb drive into the vehicles remote USB port (NOT on the radio). It should be either in the center console or glove box

5) Press and hold the Uconnect Phone button for approx. 15 seconds, until you hear Software Update started

6) Wait until the update is completely finished (about 10-15 minutes or so) During this update, the radio will beep over and over (you can turn this down with the volume knob). If after about 5 minutes you hear "This file archive not compatible with this vehicle," than either you used the wrong download, OR your radio does not currently have an update available

So after 20 painful minutes of beep... beep... beep... (the silence was painful too)

SUCCESS!

Plugged in the iPAD and it worked perfectly. I will warn folks that there is a slight delay synching, and playing music but definately something I can live with.

I even tested out Netflix and Global TV on Demand over Bluetooth and Wired and although the sound was out of sync it worked perfectly. I do however have an annoying crackle while streaming audio over bluetooth. It did this too with my blackberry.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Oh and to the folks who got us the update

That is awesome news, and I am glad you notice an improvement. Hopefully we'll soon (in a couple weeks) be able to host an update for those with the 43.01.30 radio as well
