So I recently upgraded from the original iPhone (yes, I still had one that worked) to the iPhone 4 (not S version). After pairing to my Uconnect RER, when I look at my contacts, every singe contact is duplicated. It's really annoying, because when I use the voice dial function on Uconnect it asks you to first choose from one of the duplicate names.

I've tried re-pairing and re-naming the phone, but didn't work. I even tried manually deleting the duplicate contacts, but as soon as I restart the truck and it reconnects to the phone it reloads the contacts and I'm back to double everything.

Anyone else have this problem?

I don't have a Smart Phone, but i do have RER
At least your phone picks up the Contact list, mine only picks them up from the phones memory & most of my contacts are on the SIM card & my RER doesn't see them

I suggest that you re_arrange your phones contact list, to something like
Work list & Home list, or some other thing, like Cell & Home

It may change the way your RER sees your smart phone Contacts

Good Luck

Most phones that have SIM cards let you import your contacts from the SIM card to the phone. Have you tried this? What phone do you have?

This is kind of strange because as far as I know, Uconnect does not download the contacts to the phone. Withh each key cycle Uconnect downloads the contact list from the phone to Uconnect. This happens with each key cycle in case you added or deleted any contacts while away from the vehicle. It compares the new dowwnload with what was previously stored in the Uconnect.
I don't know enough about the RER radio to say that this would not happen but I do have a contact at Chrysler that I can contact after 1-3-2012 when they get back from Christmas (Union) break.
Do you have any email or other accounts on the phone that have a contact list on it? If so are they turned on? If so go into settings and turn them off, now turn the phone off & then power it back up. Look at the contact list, are the contacts still duplicated?
I have my outlook (active sync) on my IPhone and a lot of my personal contacts are also on my active sync so when I turn on the active sync account, I do have some duplicates. Give this a shot.

Well, I figured it out. Looking through my phone to see if there is any possible way that the contacts were duplicated, I stumbled accross somthing called iphone link in my contacts. It looks like when I upgrade my phone that itunes copied all my contacts from the old SIM card to the new one, but it created a duplicate file. When I look at the contacts in my phone there is only one of each, but when I go into the contact and scroll all the way to the bottom there were two "iPhone links", each of which was a full copy of the contact. I had to manually delete each duplicate, but at least it's done now.

Thanks for the replies

I sent away for a Navigation update for my RER 730N

In the package there were 2 CDs, one for Navigation Maps & one for the
RER MYGIG,
the CD reads Navigation Radio Software Update RER/REW/REP Version 2.402

My radio sounds better & different audio adjustments can be made, my phone book is now complete, it reads both the phones SIM card & the regular memory, the screen now shows when bluetooth is connected. it takes the VOCAL commands much better now, if it doesn't understand the city name, ( Spanish & American Indian names mostly ), it will ask you to spell it out.

You would be screwed if you wanted to go to any of these towns
Rensselaer
Kayaderosseras
Poughquag
Skaneateles
