2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: More Bluetooth Issues

February 8, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

This past Saturday I drove our long-term 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 from Santa Monica to Los Feliz in Los Angeles to attend my first live Internet concert supporting the band The Mots Nouveaux. The band features lead vocals by Emma Fitzpatrick.

Emma is currently enjoying success with a recent viral video where she played the role of Anne Hathaway in For Your Consideration. The video is on target to break 1 million views this week. Congrats, Emma.

Anyway, the distance between my house in Santa Monica and the concert venue, a house in Los Feliz, was 20 miles. Traffic wasn't too bad and the trip was pretty uneventful except for one small problem. We couldn't sync my friend's iPhone 5 to the Jeep's Uconnect system.

What better way to prepare for a concert than to stream songs from the band via your smartphone, right? Well, unfortunately we couldn't do it. This has been a sporadic problem with other iPhones throughout the 20k miles we've driven the SUV.

    Hopefully there are some software updates. But it doesn't help that youa re dealing with iPhones.

    Wow. Hipster hell - Saturday night and you can't sync an iPhone with your wheels. But...whoever said life was fair?

    OK, nothing to do with the JGC, but wow, Emma is the total package, great voice, charming and beautiful to boot. A treat to hear honest to goodness talent.
