How do I stop the usb from taking over?

Just got a new Renegade (with the uConnect 6.5 if it matters). Can't seem to find the correct answer in the owner manual. When I plug in my phone to charge it, the radio always tries to switch to it (and tells me it's unplayable but that's not the point). Is there a way to stop auto detecting anything that gets plugged into the usb ports? I'm sick and tired of the radio getting interupted.

Don't plug it in? Switch back when it occurs?? Technology is terrific isn't it? 🤓

Sounds like you are using the "media" USB port. Try one of the charging ports, like the one in the armrest.

Get a 12v socket charger? I got one for long road trips because 2 < wife+kid+me, and the kid's tablet doens't necessarily like the armrest one for actually charging.

If only in Europe that was possible.
On mine, both ports are media ports.

Its really frustrating. Especially since Apple have loaded some hideous music from U2 on my phone and it keeps playing it whenever it plugs in. I will never buy a U2 album as long as I live!

I said ports. BOTH plugins take over the radio by switching it to usb/media. I'm just going to take a wild guess in that it's poor programming and there is no work-around.

Must be nice to have both ports play media. No one has been able to figure out how you get that option to come with their Renegade.

I gave up on this problem and use a 12V adapter to charge my phone, both because of this issue and preferred to play my phone music over the bluetooth in lieu of the USB, which seemed to give me issues.

I don't use the USB for charging the last time I tried, it started to play my ring tones on my phone.
