Default Uconnect upgrades/updates

I'm wanting to update my Uconnect in my 05 Ram. It currently only allows hands free phone use by design. Does anyone know if later versions exist that allow music over bluetooth is available?

The older radios (prior to 2010) don't support streaming audio, so even if you updated the Uconnect module, you wouldn't be able to stream audio from the phone. In this case, you'll want to look into an aftermarket radio.

Thanks for the input guys. Much appreciated. I'm now looking at a custom installation for my tablet in the truck to have music and full internet access by tethering the tablet from my phone. I am also installing an auxiliary input converter that will plug into the back of my stock radio and has a flush mount 3.5mm input jack by just drilling a very small hole.

ive seen the adaptor you are talking about -- you should be able to hide it pretty good.

they do make some pretty nice aftermarket radios that will fit and they dont cost that much at all .
