Hi, I have the same radio in my '16 Patriot, also recently purchased. Not sure if you have wi-fi, but if its anything like mine -- I had to hold the Phone button down for a few seconds to activate. When it said something, I said "SETUP" & it walked me thru how to pair my iphone with the bluetooth. Once paired, I was able to make calls using the voice recognition. I could also go to a music app on my phone & hit play. Then press the AUX button to switch over & hear it. (Of course, make sure the radio is On.)
Side note -- it worked great for me for one week. When I got in my car, everything automatically paired, I could turn music on the phone, hit the AUX button & it would play no problem. But a few days ago, when I hit AUX - nothing happened. It wouldn't connect to the Uconnect bluetooth either. Not really familiar with this stuff, so I downloaded the UConnect App to my phone to see if that would help. I got to signing up, but then I got stuck at the Music app portion of the setup. There was no way to get to another screen, just the menu. So I called the help number from their menu thru the app. After getting transferred around a bit, eventually came to the solution. (Everyone was very pleasant.) There currently was some issues with the latest iphone version 10.2.1 & Uconnect for some people. They walked me thru doing a "Forget this network" for the Uconnect Bluetooth. Then I re-paired my phone to the bluetooth by pressing the phone button down for a few seconds to activate it again like the first time. Now it works again! They said that only works 50% of the time. And also -- the reason I got stuck on that music app screen on the Uconnect app was because apparently this radio or Uconnect version is not supported on the app. Guess its too old, but just fine for me! So figured I'd leave that there too in case you DO connect, but then it 'disconnects' again in the near future. Good luck!
