I apologize upfront for the length of this post, but after I got started I wanted to make sure I covered everything.
I'm starting this new thread because after searching numerous other threads and posts, there still seems to be no one straight answer to some of these issues. I think that a thread dedicated to the specific topic of “hands free” operations and microphone, cables, connections, and placement. In my vehicle's users guide there are "two" Uconnect 130 units listed. There is the base "Uconnect 130" that is just AM/FM/Disc with an Aux for Audio Jack and that's it. I don't know why they even use the name "Uconnect" on this unit since it has none of the functions listed as part of the "Uconnect" features. The next model is the "Uconnect 130 WITH SiriusXM SATELLITE RADIO" and the picture shows both the "Voice Command" and "Uconnect" buttons, but the note bellow says "Your radio may or may not be equipped with Uconnect Voice Command and Uconnect Phone features." My 2013 Challenger SXT came equipped with the Uconnect 130 WITH SiriusXM SATELLITE RADIO, but my unit doesn't have either of those two buttons. When I was preparing to buy my vehicle I specifically asked about the buttons to control the “Uconnect” features and the salesman said it must be controlled with the buttons on the steering wheel. I still didn't see how to work it and he said “the manual should show you all that.” As I was still caught up in the “wheeling and dealing” of trying to buy my Challenger and didn't come back to that issue. Afterwards I was told that the “Uconnect 130” in my car would not operate the “hands free” functions, but if I installed one of the higher level units then my “hands free” will operate. Now after a year I managed to get a MyGig RHR (730n) and the harness Part #82212906 to bypass the “hands free” module in the car. I got everything ready and pulled the 130 and removed the glove box to be able to reach the “HF” module. As much as I looked at what was behind the glove box, I'll be damned if I can identify anything that could be the “HF” module. Either I'm just not finding it or it was never installed, contrary to what was implied by the “Window Sticker” and the salesman; of course the salesman is no longer there. I would love to get comments, input, and possibly pictures from others who are attempting this upgrade.
