Default Uconnect apps

Ok, well that title was just to get you salivating for yet another UCONNECT thread.

I have registered for my free year of UCONNECT but I have yet to see any of these "So Called Apps" such as Yelp or Pandora? I look under APPS and I have Uconnect Store and a couple others none of which look like Yelp or Pandora.

Am I missing something?

Oh and while I am on the thread on radios, my salesman was telling me that I have 20gigs to store my music on, he explained that I insert my thumb drive or SD card and it will be copied over to the hard drive. Apparently it is 40gigs in space but 20 is reserved for other fun things.

I have used my thumbdrive and when I removed it guess what there is no way of seeing the music that was on it.

Should I just consider my Salesman didnt really have the correct facts? Or am I missing yet another fine enhancement to come later on the UConnect?

Thanks in advance,

I don't remember the 8.4 having any internal storage. The older MyGIG radios did but none of the new generation ones do.

As for the apps, I'll poke around and ask.

The older radios (2012 down) had hard drive storage, it was advertised at 20gb or something but was about half that in reality.

These have no hard drive or DVD player capability like the older ones. The salesman said this '13 was equipped with the option CD/DVD player. But it doesnt play DVDs like the older ones.

I was told by Uconnect assistance that apps will be coming the fist of Sept. Don't know if I should hold my breath on that one though.

Although, it may not be reassignable to other uses, there must be some type of internal storage, otherwise, where would the map data reside?

I'm sure there is a several GB of memory, most likely solid state, for map and other data.

The older radios had hard drives, its possible these have one too but even in the engineering menu there is no mention of storage so who knows until someone takes one apart.
