I like the slot between the cup holders for a phone. I’m still looking for a place to mount my phone. Has anyone found anything that works with the JLU with 8 inch screen?
Does the UConnect have Bluetooth or do you have to physically plug it in to use Apple/Google?With CarPlay I don’t even want/need to mount my phone anywhere in sight like on the dash. I’m trying to find a slot type holder than I can just slide it in and have it connect to the lightning cable in order to connect to the head unit enabling CarPlay. Right now I put in the slot between the cup holders and then plug in the cable. Not as convenient as I would like, so still looking for options.
Yes, there is Bluetooth like Skye mentions but it doesn’t support the CP or AA...you have to plug it in to get those to work. I am pretty impressed on what info the blue tooth displays for calls and info from the phone. However the CarPlay and I assume Android Auto are far superior in functionality and sound quality over the Bluetooth.
So with what you both said and if you solely use CP or AA do you even have your phone connected via Bluetooth? Like can Bluetooth and CP or AA be connected simultaneously?UConnect does basic bluetooth functions but if you want Apple CarPlay or Android Connect the phone needs to be plugged in.
CarPlay doesn’t help on the trail, where it’s handy to have an app like Gaia GPS open. Plus lots of us still prefer Google Maps or Waze to Apple’s maps. When Proclip has a mount I’ll get one of those.Yes, forget the mindset of mounting your phone and use CarPlay or Android Auto. Beside the transfer case shifter is the best spot I can find. The boot leather keeps it from sliding around.
