Does it have a MyGig Nav unit or not? That will make a HUGE difference in the answer...

Agree. We don't have navigation, but would sure like to use the hands free phone system...if that's what the thing does. Hard to tell from the owners manual...

I think we get a new version of this thread every week. If you search for "uconnect" in this forum, you will find a lot of info.

MyGig with Nav...you just need the mic kit (82211743AB) which is ab out $40 at the dealership. Then go into the engineering menu and "Enable JK HF/VR" and you're all set.

works great after the mic is installed

had it installed by the dealer, but if you have the time and inclination you can do it your self. If it wasn't for this forum I would never have known about the mic, as the dealer sure didnt seem aware of it until I kept asking about it.

The engineering menu is brought up by pressing Seek Up, Seek Down, and Menu all at once. Go down to page 4 or 5 and you'll see a soft key that says "Enable JK HF/VR". Press that key and the Uconnect will now be active, and the key will change to "Disable" instead. Exit it out of the menu and now when you press UConnect, you should be give the "Uconnect" prompt from the speakers. If it doesn't take the first time (mine didn't), Go back in and disable, then renable it and it'll work.

The disc in the kit is a PDF of instructions, won't play in the MyGig.

Also, make sure your software is up to date on the MyGig. The older versions didn't have the "Enable" button in the engineering menu, feature was added later. The latest and greatest software (1.220 official and 2.042 beta (which I run)) can be downloaded at the Unofficial MyGig site, http://mofv.com/mygig
