uConnect on '08 JK w/MyGIG?

Can this be done through software only or is there a hardware component also?

We really would like bluetooth for the phones...

All you need is the microphone. The mopar one is liinked below. There are some third party ones you can get such as from Coastaletech, the guys that sell the MyGig lockpick.

Keep in mind that you may need to activate the uConnect feature through the Engineering Menu on the MyGig. Hold both Seek buttons and the Menu button at the same time for a few seconds. Once the menu has appeared, tap the Page button until you reach the last item and press the "Enable JK VR/HFM" button.

This is a good question, with REN units, is Uconnect still built in and functioning? If not, is there anything you can do to add it?
