Uconnect + Apple/Google Maps + SirusXM

Hey,

I have a 2017 RAM with uconnect 8.4. I am trying to hear apple/google maps turn-by-turn when listening to SirusXM. I cannot figure out how to do it. Is it even possible? The phone is connected via bluetooth.

Thanks

Not possible with the oem radio that I know of, you can only listen to one source at a time.

When they finally add carplay and android auto to the RAM 8.4 radio you may able to, but that probably won't happen until the 2018 MY.

That is crazy. Such a basic feature to be missing from that system. I was reading car play will only come to new trucks and they will not back port it.

I believe the only way that you will get the turn by turn audio from your phone through your truck speakers is if you are using the bluetooth as your source for audio. (streaming something from your phone also). I don't believe the 8.4 has the ability for another source to patch in over the current source, even momentarily.

There are some options to "hack" the 8.4...if you're interested in going that route...

Not 100% sure if Rax can do it...check this thread...

UConnect Jailbreak from Customtronix

The android system definitely can...

There is also Lockpick I think it's called...poke around..you'll find them

I'm confused and must not understand what the OP is asking.

Because we use Google maps on our iPhone 6 Plus and the turn-by-turn directions come through the truck speakers.

When we are listening to SiriusXM, the music is muted while she's giving us instructions.

Get in truck...grab iPhone...tap Google maps...select route...hit start...and she begins talking through the speakers.

What am I missing?

Hmm my 2017 Ram 3500 with Uconnect 8.4 does not do that. If it's on SiriusXM I hear nothing. But if I switch over to media I hear turn-by-turn.

You need to go into the settings inside google maps. Click on Settings, then Navigation settings. Make sure Play voice over Bluetooth is turned on. This is what is set on my iPhone 6s Plus and it works through my 8.4.

If it doesn't work right away, unpair your phone from the radio (under Bluetooth settings, forget device), then re-sync the phone and 8.4. It shouldn't be necessary to go through the re syncing, but sometimes these things are finicky.

Yay repairing allowed it to work. Apple maps does not have that "Play as Bluetooth Call" option. But Waze does so 2 out of 3 popular nav options now work.

I just need to find a mount for my phone/tablet.

I use Waze on iPhone, connected to the 8.4 via bluetooth. No matter what source I am listening to on my radio I get turn by turn over bluetooth. Within the waze app you have to enable Play as bluetooth phone call.
