I would like to add the uConnect kit to my 2006 300C to use with my Treo 650 which has bluetooth. If I do this, will caller ID info show on the Nav screen or on the info screen between the guages? Or, will I not have caller ID at all with the uConnect or ANY aftermarket add-on.

To me, I may as well buy a bluetooth headphone instead if I don't have caller ID available. Any thoughts?

My guess is that it would display the caller ID on the Nav screen and on the instrument cluster. The stock UConnect system does this so the aftermarket should as well if it connects to the nav unit.

So, you have the aftermarket uConnect and all it does is give you conversation through the extra speaker and mutes the stereo when you get a call? There are no other 'bells and whistles'?

And the aftermarket uconnect only works with bluetooth equipped phones correct? Any network though right? Is there a mic somewhere?

Only with bluetooth phones, any network that supports bluetooth.. The mic fits up on the overhead light console.

Aftermarket u-connect is limited

I too made the mistake of ordering the uconnect aftermarket. Although I was told at the time when I purchased the car that the aftermarket one would work the same. As it turns out, it does NOT connect to the NAV system. Therefore, all the uconnect functions of the NAV are disabled. I guess the lesson here is to spend the few hundred bucks up front!

Just a thought, Is there a way to connect the aftermarket U-Connect to the Nav unit, Perhaps splicing the wiring and making a connection of some sort.
