Question Uconnect

I am a little confused about uconnect in general

i mean what does it do for me.

I stream spotify from my iphone over bluetooth.

I do see that I can start my truck with my phone with the app. But what else do I get with the free or paid subscription?

I have my new Ram coming soon. I would like to know if any smartphone will work with it. Will Blackberry Z10 or windows 8 phones work with UConnect?

Hi, my BlackBerry 9900 Bold works fine - music streaming good, phone good - unfortunately .. none of the cool apps and remote start features are enabled for Canadians ..

You can have your text messages read to you and you can reply to them without taking your hands off the wheel. It also syncs your contacts from your phone.

Hi, I dont have an Iphone so I cannot make direct reference to how it works or does not work .. just a couple of questions .. do you have all current updates applied to your phone and to the radio ? Guess you have gone to the uconnect phone website and confirmed what works and what does not work for your radio .. I am sure that it will all be fixed soon.

The Advantage Package (which is included as a free trial and then is $19.99 per month) includes the following:

- 911 Call
- Remote vehicle start
- Care assist call
- Remote door lock
- Cancel remote start
- Remote door unlock
- Voice texting
- Bing (still listed but was removed from radio today)
- Remote horn & lights
- Roadside assistance call
- Stolen vehicle assistance
- Theft alarm notification
- Yelp (just added today)

I'm on the fence about whether or not I will pay when my trial runs out. The only thing I use is the remote start, and only when I'm too far for my key fob to reach and when I have plenty of time (it takes several minutes before the vehicle actually starts). I like the idea of tracking it if it is stolen but that is a pretty low risk...not enough to warrant $20 a month.

Yelp is a neat thing to show off to impress friends but in reality it is about 10x quicker and easier to use a phone's Yelp app.

Edit: Most of the above apply to the 8.4 series

Now I'm a bit confused.... I thought the truck included (or was at least optional with) remote start. Is this not the case?
