  1. Hi all, I have a 2015 DJ SXT with the 8.4 (non-Nav). Since I have had this DJ, there have been multiple mechanical issues covered under warranty as well as the entertainment system going crazy. The radio has the DVD option, rear camera ( Installed and had the dealer activate it), and active Sirius. After the first year, the radio suddenly had a mind of its own with the volume sliding up to max while the car is in motion as well as the inputs cycling through am, FM, DVD, Sirius, and locking into the aux. (there was nothing connected in the RCA jacks). The warranty covered the replacement of the radio and the out of control 8.4 came to a grinding halt. A month later, the overhead entertainment screen stopped functioning (dealer diagnosed it as not communicating with the radio). The screen was replaced under the warranty as well. The curious thing the dealer had mentioned or inquiried about was if I plugged my iPhone in the USB port in the armrest storage. He had mentioned it could cause the electrical malfunction on the radio. This may sound a bit silly, but until the service person had mentioned it, I did not realize there was a port in there. I thought it was only a light in there due to the rubber plug covering the socket. Fast forward to Dec 2018, My wife plugged in her iPhone into the outlet because I had my phone plugged into the external cell charger. (combo charger and holder plugged in the power point ). This is where the insanity piece comes in... Immediately after she connected in the USB port, the screen began blinking then getting fully scrambled, then the radio rebooted. I reached over and unplugged her phone from the USB port. The radio screen blacked out then looked like it rebooted. All functions went back to normal. After that, I was reluctant to even connect my phone via Bluetooth to the radio. Since I use hands-free, I still connected via Bluetooth. Fast forward again to Jan 2019, I went to the dealer for an oil change and asked if they could check it out. Because the 36,000 warranty was over in Jun 2018, they wanted to charge to diagnose the issue. This is the same dealer that replace the radio and overhead screen. They suggested not to connect the iPhone to the USB port. The other item I noticed was the audio lag when connected to Bluetooth with movies/music videos on the iPhone (for the back seat passengers to watch Netflix on longer drives) the audio is about 3 seconds behind the video. Is this normal? we both have iPhone 6 Plus's. Does anyone have any recommendations or thoughts?
  2. When I connect my Iphone 7 to the the USB port in my 2016 Journey, the system syncs with no problem but then will only play music from my itunes library, which there are only like 1 or 2 songs since I use Amazon for all my music. Is there any way to make the journey recognize the music I have in the Amazon library rather than the Itunes library? I've tried opening the amazon music app while it is synced, closing and pausing the Itunes app but it will not recognize amazon music at all. I have tried to find answers through amazon, apple and this forum but have not had any luck. And I honestly do not know which system or app is causing the issue but am hoping someone on here has any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi! My iPhone takes FOREVER to connect to my radio... I dont know what to do, i tried to re-pair it, delete it from my phone, etc... But it is not working. I went to apple and they said theres no problem at all with my phone... Thank you
  4. I drive a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT and have the navigation system build into the dash. Not touchscreen. Under the AUX input is a USB slot and my manual says I can connect in iPod mode to switch tracks and play through the car but when I connect with my iPhone cable it only charges. I have tried looking through every option and mode but when I plug the iPhone into the USB it only charges. It plays fine with AUX Cable but not with USB so I can switch tracks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Howdy folks! Just purchased my first ever new car on July 19 - 2012 Dodge Journey SXT. Absolutely loving the car! However, one thing is stopping it from being absolutely perfect...the ability to stream Pandora from my iPhone 4 to my UConnect system. I've scourged the internet, and can't seem to locate much help on the topic (most of the topics I've seen have been devoted to Bluetooth connectivity - which my vehicle does not support at this time). What I've found - that with my iPhone 4 connected to the UConnect system, it works flawlessly with my library of songs. So I can move around my playlist and control my iPhone music from the steering wheel controls. Now, if I load the Pandora app and push play on one of the Pandora stations, I am able to hear about 2-3 seconds of the Pandora station, before what appears the UConnect system proceeding to go back to my iPhone library to play another track. I hit the Play button again on the Pandora app - same thing, get about 2-3 seconds of music from Pandora, then the UConnect system takes back over and tries to play another iPhone music track. I've tried hitting the pause button on the UConnect system to halt the iPhone music playback, then hitting the play button in Pandora - doesn't seem to have much different effect. Only time I'm able to get it to work, is to exit the Pandora app and relaunch it after it's been connected to the UConnect system - or disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it. This usually takes several tries to get working. On top of that - once I do manage to get it working - the UConnect screen will show tracks from my iPhone library instead of the track currently playing on Pandora. I can use the steering controls to control Pandora (such as skipping a song) - but it just ends up showing the next track on my iPhone library (even though Pandora is playing correctly). It was my assumption from reading posts from around the web, that the UConnect system should be able to detect the Pandora track and display the information on the screen. Am I doing something wrong? Anyone else have better luck with streaming Pandora through the USB connection? Something different I need to set up on my UConnect system or iPhone? Any assistance or insight is greatly appreciated! Thanks all and thanks for reading my first post! -- Brandon
