no problem. I used to think that BT was like a light switch until my friend showed me a trace on how much information is going on thru the air. You'd be amazed, I was.

The Uconnect in the Ram is built by Magnetti Marelli (http://www.magnetimarelli.com/company) and the radio is by Panasonic.
Just curious about when it loses connection, do you see on the radio that BT is actually lost its connection?
Yes I loose phone and media. Media comes back after a few seconds but the phone has to reload phone book and messages. Messages usually takes a while. This is my second radio the first one only showed phone numbers of the person who sent a message the new one actually show their name which is cool. The real reason I got the second radio is crackle and poor reception on FM band. Still horrible FM. VERY FRUSTRATED.

On the FM crackle, have they looked at the Antenna? Hows the AM sound? I don't have answers for the 2013 vehicles as it's a different manufacturer than the radios I have in my vehicles. But I am mostly curious.

Actually I asked them about that today when I picked it up for the bad A/C module that I had replaced. Yes they have some sort of antenna kit that they use. They told me Dodge is going to have to do something the complaint is growing.

Yeah, I read in another forum that people are having the same issue with FM. Seems quite odd that they didn't find that in their vehicle testing before the 2013 started to be built. Manufacturers usually build a batch of vehicles for heavy validation testing.

I have an s4 that is paired in my 2013 for my contacts list but has a hard time pairing the recent call log and messaging? Can't figure this out for the life of me....
