Default iPOD connector missing?

I'm trying to get a census going on how many of you are missing the iPOD cable.

From all the literature I've read on Dodge and out of their brochures, this cable is part of a package. The package that includes the cable/connection is the Uconnect Phone/Voice command.

If you have the upgraded NAV unit (730 media connect) then the Uconnect Phone and Voice command is included, which by virtue of relationship should also include the iPOD connector as it is part of the Uconnect Phone package.

I have a 2010 Laramie with the 730 media controller and Uconnect Phone so I expected to see the cable in the upper glove box - but it's missing. It also doesn't show on the Dealer Connect build sheet.

Was there a shortage or an issue with these things and they stopped putting them in, or is there another reason I'm not privvy to?

I have told the dealer to open a case with the Chrysler rep and am trying to get the cable installed on Chrysler's nickel - because I'm pretty sure I paid for it.

Anybody else have this problem too?

Thanks
Paul

Not all of them come with the cable installed. I don't have my VES info handy tonite so I can't tell you if you should have it or not.

Thanks Randy. I'd be interested to know why if it's supposed to be there. Are they attempting to save money and only include it for those that complain?

No, it's just not standard on some systems. I think they should put them on all of them due to the popularity of ipods. Personally, I have an aftermarket system with a USB cable mounted under my dash and I use a jump drive for my music.

I have the 730 unit (REN) and uconnect. My truck brought the connection already set-up in the glove box and the cable was in there.

Do you have the plug on the top glove box? Or are you missing both the cable and plug?

I have 730 with uconnect and have cable and port to plug cable in (located in upper glove box). I have seen them without cable but they have no port in glove box. Take a look for the port,if its there they owe you a cable.

No, I have no port in the upper glove box or in the console. It seems the 730 should come with it and for some reason or another I don't have it. I've had the dealer order the cable, but I think there is another part required by the sounds of what you guys are telling me. I have the RER unit.

The dealer just got back to me.

Chrysler is going to pay them to install the missing parts.

I guess they should have been there!

Looking forward to hands-free usage.

Every 2010 that I looked at before I bought my truck had Nav, and all those also had the iPod plug-in spot and the cable in a package in the upper glove box.
