This does not sound correct. I will look into it and get back to you. May I ask what SW is on the iPhone?
Also please let me fully understand what you are doing. My understanding is that you have:
1) paired the iPhone 3 to the Uconnect system and would like the BT connection to be used for calls,
2) After had paired the phone you now want to plug the iPhone into the USB / iPod cable for your music. The reason probably for this method is to keep your battery charged and also better sound quality. (is this correct)
3) You now can only do 1 or the other, use the phone for calls or the iPod section for audio?
Can you explain to me what does happen when you try to use both?
Thanks for the reply.
You are correct - I wanted the BT UConnect phone, the USB dock for charging, and the USB dock for highest quality digital streaming (and it is by far the best audio quality of any available option).
When I enter the car, the iPhone 3GS automatically pairs via BT with Uconnect. And hands free calling works just fine.
When I connect the iPhone 3GS to the USB dock, it reads the iPod menu and all of the songs and tracks/titles load properly. But when I hit play, it starts to play a song and then freezes after 2 seconds.
Disabling BT on the iPhone 3GS (which disables UConnect of course) then allows the iPhone iPod to play just fine over the USB dock.
So I can't have iPhone paired to UConnect via BT and have the iPhone iPod USB dock connected at the same time. It seems the iPhone isn't capable of doing both and the BT connection seems to have precedence/priority.
I don't think this is a 430N issue, because if I connect my iPod Nano to the USB dock, it works fine while my iPhone 3GS is paired via BT to UConnect. The 430N will mute and pause the iPod Nanao audio track when making calls, and then it will resume playing after the call is completed, so it's behaving exactly as I would have expected.
The firmware on my iPhone 3GS is up to date: 4.3.4 (8K2)
