Great Car But Can't Pair with Galaxy Note 3

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

Review

Just bought the Overland 4x4 V6 and I do love it. However, it appears that it still has glitches. I would give it 5 stars but my must have Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can't pair with the Uconnect/Nav/Stereo system. Confirmed with manufacturer that it's still behind in addressing the issue. In fact, if you look at their compatibility list, it's a short list. Pathetic that Jeep/Chrysler/Uconnect can't address this issue. Also, there appears to be some concerns with the Front Collision Warning system. Many can't verify if this system actually works. Also, system appears to work differently when Adaptive Cruise Control is on versus off. Hope Chrysler reads this and address these issues.

Samsung phones are about the most inconsistant out there, though you should be able to pair the phone. A suggestion in case you haven't looked into it yet would be to check to see if there is an update for your 8.4(x) radio. For the front collision warning system; it works with your adaptive cruise. Beyond matching the speed of the vehicle in front of you it can apply the brakes firmly. In this order - 1st - a warning when it detects the object. If ignored -2nd - jumps the brakes for you to give you that jolt that says wake up there's something ahead. -3rd will press and keep on the brake if driver ignores warnings - 4th and final - panic brake assist kicks in and the Jeep will do everything in it's power to stop the forward motion. The idea is to stop the vehicle, but depending on the terrain it may reduce the impact greatly if not totally. When adaptive cruise is disabled the system will work like normal cruise control without the driving assists.
