Default iphone won't sync on the uconnect

I was wondering if anyone else had this problem with their truck. When I plug in my iphone on either the front usb or the glove box usb, it says error. However, when I plug my ipod nano in, it syncs just fine. Any suggestions?

you shouldn't have to plug it in to anything, turn on your bluetooth on your phone and it should find it. I have an iphone and didnt have any issues but I haven't tried to plug it in and lets say play music off it or something like that. As far as using the phone through it, it has worked perfectly.

hmmm, ok, didn't think of that. I am not very tech savvy when it comes to this stuff. So I just turn the bluetooth on, on the phone and then the radio just finds it? Or do I have to push something on the radio too? and will it play my music off my phone through the blue tooth?

If I remember I turned it on in my phone and then hit the unconnect button on the radio and it kinda walked me through it. After that you won't have to do anything, if you have your phone on you it will work.

I don't have any problems connecting and playing tunes over bluetooth on my iphone 4. I am not keen on this as the performance isn't as good as the direct wire and the constant bluetooth broadcast seems to suck the battery fast.

What I really want to know is why no iphone or ipod touch in my family will work via the glove box plug but the wife's little nano has no problem connecting...

Yep Chemistry, that is my exact problem too. ipod nano works just fine, but the iphone 3gs won't work with the usb connectors. I was hoping to upload some pics too from my phone. anyone out there know why?

i had that problem too. and the thing about playing music over bluetooth is when you touch any buttons on the phone like unlock or text or anything the music speeds up at like 2x rate while your touching it. once you click lock again it goes normal.

I'm really surprised at all of the problems I hear with Iphones! RIM owns the operating system QNX, which I think the radios run on. Or maybe that is the problem.... LOL

And maybe the PlayBook will integrate seemlessly... same operating system.

Perhaps worth mentioning; When hooking up my daughter's iPod Touch 2g to the glovebox USB, I had to turn OFF bluetooth on her Ipod to make it work at all on the USB cable. Still doesn't work 100% perfect every time, but its manageable. Without doing that, the radio did not recognize it at all. For those of you trying to connect through USB, try turning OFF the bluetooth & wireless on the device before connecting it. Can't comment for the iPhone as I don't have one.

If this works, please let me know. I'm not sure if this is just a problem with her specific iPod or any iPod.
