Aloha,
I have a 2018 Trailhawk with the uconnect Sirius radio.
The Bluetooth connection from my phone to the radio when I play music cuts out quite a bit.
I have tried other Bluetooth devices, deleted/reinstalled my phone, changed Bluetooth setting on my phone, placed the phone various places in the Jeep, even cleared any demons with sage and it still cuts out occasionally. Any others have this problem?

Hi HawaiiOutback,
We understand why this may be frustrating. We suggest having your dealer inspect this concern if you have not done so already. We are also available via private message if you would like any additional assistance during that process.

The bluetooth receiver in the Renegade is not particularly strong in my experience. With iphones and decent trim level samsung phones, I've had issues.

Have the phone in a pocket on my right leg? It's fine. Left leg? Occasionally hiccups or cuts out. Hooked up my kids tablet via bluetooth so he can dj form the back seat? Yeah no. not unless he holds it between the front seats.

The sweet spot seems to basically anywhere above the center console/armrest area with a bit of a projection over the driver and passenger front seating area.

Is this just the audio stuttering when playing music?

If so, Google around on how to activate the developer options on your phone
and then change the default bluetooth audio codec to different ones until you find one that doesn't give problems.
