My phone (Android Bionic) can connect to my 730N in three ways...

1. Via Bluetooth as an AUX device. Usually I have to try and connect several times in order for this to work

2. Via the AUX 3.5mm port. Once connected, I just select the AUX option and then select my device.

3. Via the USB connection in the Armrest. Once plugged in, my phone goes into "Mass Storage Device" mode.

Method 1 is the hardest to get to work. Sometimes it connects right away and others, it takes multiple attempts.

The only way I can get it to work is plug into the 3.5mm port. Once I plug it in its automatically connected and start streaming music right away.

" Via the USB connection in the Armrest" What jeep do you have to have a USB in the console?

If you have a 730N from the factory, you have the USB in the center console. The connector is at the rear of the top tray.

RER is an older 730N radio, not sure if the ports locations are different.

Additional info is here: http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_navigation.htm

My understanding is the older 730N RER model does not support BT streaming.

You may want to check over at http://www.mofv.com/mygig/ to see if there has been any RER updates released that may have added the feature. Their discussions cover all chrysler products, not only the Jeep application.

Back of top console tray

You almost have to look twice to see it, but it does light up at night. The USB port is located in the middle rear of the top console tray section. Look again, you may have missed it. It is there in all 2011-12 430 and 730 radio models, like my 2012 430N RHB model. I wish the console USB port would allow accessing files via a thumbdrive, like the one on the lower right of the radio head unit. I understand the console port can only be used to plug in a device such as an iPod (which I do not have). However, the port does not self-power devices so you will be on device battery power only.

And I am still not happy that the 430 and 730 radio Gracenote software does not have current updates, does recognize any music artwork issued since approximately April 2012 and artwork uploads from the original CD only (very slow copy process) - not from iTunes, Roxio or Nero mp3 file formats. But then, not having the album artwork may not be that big a deal - it is just another example of poor software design and support of the GC media systems by Chrysler. Chrysler will no longer allow Gracenote to provide the formerly "free/anytime/online" software updates, but instead refers you back to the dealer to do the updates at a "nominal cost" (I was told $19.95) for the update and shop time (I was told 1 hour minimum charge) for the installation/reflash. Personally, I will wait at least 1+ years until I need to have my GPS maps updated at the same time. I have already found multiple errors with the 430N Garmin GPS vs my 3-month old portable Garmin unit (which is very accurate and up to date). And not being able to make any route changes, check addresses or make HDD changes while the vehicle is in drive is a PItA (ie: you cannot even do it when you are stopped in traffic, at a light, side of road, etc). Best luck.

Here is another link for studying your media system capabilities, etc.

Does anyone know what this upgrade does for the 730n rer?

If you have a Media Center 730N (RER) radio, you are eligible to obtain a FREE iPhone4 radio upgrade DVD by mail.

I found the information in link below:

Not sure if this helps sound quality but I found that I can listen to Pandora while plugged in to the AUX cable.

1.While the phone is plugged in I start Pandora (on the iPhone)

2. I then chose the AUX option to listen to music on the iPod part of the phone.

3. I pause the song on the iPod and after a brief delay Pandora streams through.

I have the 730N radio in the Overland.

Does anyone know why when I stream pandora over bluetooth on my iphone, the songs skip and are choppy. This only happens if my screen is lit, if my screen is off it is not choppy anymore.

I suspect it has more to do with the recent iOS 6 upgrade as I'm seeing the same issue myself. I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and have had all sorts of little bugs after the upgrade. I see the same issue with streaming music through Pandora and iTunes/Music app on my phone. Neither issue existed with iOS 5.

When I take my vehicle in for the 3.6L cylinder head issue I'm going to see if there is a flash they can apply to the Uconnect to see if this resolves the issue. If it doesn't then we'll have to wait for an update from Apple.

*Edit*

Thinking it's more of an Apple problem based on the Apple Support forums:

I have spoken to Chrysler and UConnect for the radios, if you go to http://www.driveuconnect.com/support/jeep you can download the most recent updates for your radio. They will be adding the 430n RHB in the near future to be compatible with Apple products, specifically iPhones for the spoken txt messages and Siri support.
