I also noticed that a lot of the other Uconnect settings changed. And the voice recognition is terrible.

I know for a fact everything worked better in my WK2 with the original 13.05.03 that came with my 3/13 built Summit. I wish I could go back. Now as others are getting the dash lighting up like a christmas tree, I'm sure it will happen to my Summit soon.
FWIW my Jeep had all the dash lighting up (twice) while I still had 13.05.03 installed. So, I doubt the update is causing that problem. My Overland was delivered in March.

I should point out that the UConnect system connects to other modules in the vehicle. It cannot be solely responsible for other system failures. There are bound to be done problems. The fact is the UConnect is being improved and fixed faster than some of the other systems and is on occasion flushing out other unrelated issues. Just an opinion.

Re: Another day - another 2k14 Summit issue

So today - under the topic - another day another summit problem - I get in the car - and the nag isn't responsive - could not enter a POI - address - nothing. So I start to drive. In about 10 minutes - it came alive. Guess what - after that - the issue I had with the settings going away when checked was FIXED! I can now check settings and it no longer disappears. Nav worked - settings now stick.. SO -- question -- it would seem to me that U-Connect may have pushed some type of 'fix' if you will or update..? Is that possible? I checked the software rev and that didn't change at all - just wondering why the nav hung and then things 'worked'.... Possible it did an update of some sort?

Trust me it is not the 13.15.4, I have done some serious messing with that software.
OK, I don't think I messed with the volume knob when the radio was off, but I guess its possible I touched it. So hopefully that was a fluke thing.

Don't get me wrong, I do love the vehicle.

Do you happen to know if the Uconnect can update itself without being hooked up to a dealer scanner or by USB? Just wondering if it can be done through the vehicles roof antenna without the owner being aware of it?

Apps can update themselves. Activated radios have done some unusual things because the apps were downloading and or reconfiguring. Often this was worse for a couple of days after the update but then went away.

UConnect does not update at this time, I suppose in theory it is possible it could run Patches because the different parts of it's control are packaged in 12 different modules. The entire unit is a 500+ Meg update though so a little large for wireless data.

Your audio issues though I knew of becuase there is another user who had the exact same distortion you speak of and it was something in the control knob specifically. We started talking about it because he claimed other things sounded better than the HK in the Summit. Once he played around with the know a little it cleared right up and he was very impressed.

Of course if there is a periodic flakiness with the knob it should be replaced. I would be interested to hear back if this is your case?

No and no, I am an independent consultant but I work for a lot of dealers. Mainly North American but Mercedes and some Kia etc too.

When it comes to this stuff it helps the dealers I work with too. As I have been working with dealers so long I have some corporate contacts at the Manufacturer as well as some access to data.

So you can see why they openly let me use vehicles because it saves each dealer a lot of grief on the customer service side.

Thanks. Today everything worked fine. Well except I still believe the VR worked better with the old S/W version.

By any chance have you heard of a cure for the keyfob not opening the liftgate with the normal 2 clicks? Mine along with others now requires 4 clicks to get the liftgate open. When I use the 2 clicks first, I can hear what sounds like a module or something waking up, yet the liftgate doesn't open until 2 more clicks are applied.

I am aware of this issue. I know it also comes and goes sometimes. I haven't spent a lot of time on it yet but I believe the UConnect people are aware of it.... I think it may be a lift gate module similar to the unlock problem on 2011 JGC and Durango so it is likely nothing to do with UConnect at all.

I believe VR was updated with some new capabilities, may be a patch that cleans them up a little in 13.19

Thanks Milous -- perhaps you may know -- you say that Jeep will use a TSB for this update -- do you think it will be released so owners could update - or - will it only be available via a TSB for dealer installation?

thanks

Charlie
