correct me if i have made any mistakes

the CD from the dealer, it covers the TRAVEL LINK, not the traffic link
This explains it, note the Sirius freebie, as sort of an apology

By this point in time it's obvious that Chrysler is not giving this a high priority AND Apple isn't making it easy on them. I would suggest you either load the songs onto the radio HD or get a Lockpick CHR550 to use your ipod/iphone. I did both and I use them instead of the factory ipod hookup. I haven't had any issues with either and have stopped worrying about it.

If you don't like my answer then talk to your Dodge dealer or email Dodge directly. There is not much anyone else can do at this point. It did work and then Apple updated their SW and it stopped working for some people. It appears that is going to be a trend and I have chosen to not participate in that endless loop by going around it.


Hope that helps.

Thumbs down

I contacted Chrysler canada about this issue and below is there response::

Thank you for your email of November 17, 2011.

We regret to inform you that the Apple I phone 4S is not on the U
Connect compatibility list as of yet. You may visit http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/quality/
to view the compatibility list. We encourage you to contact U Connect
directly for information regarding your phone compatibility at
1-877-855-8400.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to review this matter with you.

NOTE: Please do not use the 'Reply' function of your email. If you have
a need to respond to this email, please visit us at our reply form (link
provided below). Our system is NOT able to accept any emails at this
address.

I haven't yet called the U connect people but plan to tonight, also on this radio we dont have the sirius travel thing in canada.. we always get ripped off with these things, if i knew what i know now i would have never paid for the upgraded stereo and just bought aftermarket radio instead.

The Travel Link is not that BIG of a thing really..
SiriusXM Travel Link is fully integrated into your vehicle's navigation system to bring you important and useful information while you're on the road, with minimal driver distraction. Whether you're reviewing a three-day weather radar forecast, finding the best gas prices along your route, looking up movie times and locations, or checking sports scores, SiriusXM Travel Link provides you updated, detailed information.

The thing to have that is much more useful is SIRIUS TRAFFIC
With SiriusXM Traffic you'll be able to see color-coded traffic information, including average speed and traffic flow, accident locations, (displayed on the map with an icon), road construction and other incidents. Helpful information about road closures and predicted delays is also available.

Well we have neither in Canada so it still blows, also Chrysler gave me the wrong number for Uconnect problems actual number is: 1-877-855-8400

Anybody wtih Iphone problems should call relentlessly this number to get an answer and a fix.

This number is for american chrysler customer assistance... which i called and they were saying "oh yeah no problem we can send you an update CD" until they found out i was canadian and directed me back to canadian chrysler customer assistance, who didnt help at all and said sorry Iphone 4s is not currently compatible with Uconnect... ANY CANADIANS ON HERE HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND KNOW AN ANSWER?? its really starting to annoy me that i am going to have to go out and buy a hands free bluetooth kit even when i have a $1500 radio that has all that in it already.... still researching this problem, ill update any changes

Once you install the software for SIRIUS TRAVEL LINK

you will get a FREE year of SIRIUS RADIO, & that is a good thing

this explains everything, it also works on the RAM 430N media center

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/css_wk2_k4011.pdf

many people think that the installation is finished when it SEEMS to stop doing anything, but it is still running in the background, let it continue running longer
the Travel Link will end up being a on screen Soft Key & there will be some kind of color change on the screen, if i remember correctly

Hello, what radio do you have? It will be a 3 alpha code on the lower right of the radio faceplate. If it's the RES, , RHB or RBZ, then Chrysler has a TSB (08-036-11A) that will fix this for you. This TSB was originally released on June 29th 2011 and a revision of it was released on Oct 26th 2011. The update takes about 20 minutes to perform. Let me know if you need further assistance with this issue.

Ok, the posts have been a bit scattered which is somewhat confusing.

I have a 2011 Dodge Ram with with the 630N.
My old iphone worked fine but with the iPhone 4s plugged in to either usb port it doesnt read.
Bluetooth still works though.
So which update do I need Uconnect or radio?

Thx
