You're correct about using the cable instead of BT streaming. There are many advantages this way. I don't think the iOS7 will add anything to the voice commands. I'll wait to see the video, hopefully I'll see something there.

I just installed ios7 to test it and I'm hoping that i don't have any additional issues. I have not been in the truck yet to see.

I'll try and do a video if I can of the quirkiness.

Default Thanks to xsdbs

I just installed xsdbs's update on a '11 Outdoorsman w/ the 430 RBZ radio. Bluetooth streaming with my iPhone sounds about 10X better than before. I had my original radio replaced under warranty about a year back because it was randomly rebooting itself on startup. They did the first TSB update on the uConnect module apparently, because it didn't sound like chipmunks anymore after I got the truck back. I couldn't stand to use bluetooth streaming due to the terrible quality though. Thanks for the work on all this xsdbs

Speaking of using the data usb cable. Has anyone tried to use a usb hub to connect multiple devices. I only ask this because I have the wire running down threw the center stack an ipod connector and a mini usb for my phone. No I listen to the music from my old iphone. But I am charging my cell and on occasion using the data cable. I'm looking for convenience. And not clutter.

I haven't tried this but I can see a couple of issues that could come up:
1) the data lines from each device would be active and possibly cause a reading error.
2) The USB power output is rated at 5 volts and 1/2 amp, having more than on device on that connector could cause the power supply in the Uconnect module to fail due to trying to draw to much current.

I might be a little late to the party, but I just traded my '09 SLT for a '11 Big Horn. I tried the streaming audio from my galaxy s4 yesterday and the first thought I had was how disappointing the sound quality was. I think I have the RBZ radio.

what is the build date of the truck?
If you're not sure, then can you take a picture of the Uconnect module and post it. Drop the glovebox down to ward the floor and look inside the dash, you'll see the module to the far right of the dash.

I'm not really sure if you're asking a question or just making a statement. Can you give more details?
