Not I am having other issues as i am now starting to use the navigation. I simply cannot get the VR to recognize anything i say and it completely shuts down just about everytime i use it.
The VR have a hard time understanding, I'm better now that I took a look at the voice commands tips and tricks document

About the park lower suspension, I think it could set it up once you get car gear into parking, or even after you shut down the engine, like the seat and steering wheel! I still think this is a bug and it should be there! I hate to have to push the button!

OK, it's clearly not there...maybe a future update.

Also, my option to display Fuel Saver in the EVIC seems to have fallen off since yesterday...it's not in my options any more. I don't even know what it is, maybe it's something to do with the HEMI (mine is a V6).

The only place I saw a fuel saver display was right in front of the steering wheel. I access it with the buttons on the wheel.

Didn't know this was actually an option?

Usually Easy Exit/Entry means that the steering column goes up and the seat slides back. As far as I know the air suspension will not work when a door is opened, unless something has changed for the 2014 model year. And the mechanicals for the Seat Easy Exit/Entry only begins to work when the door is opened.

the seat easy exit/entry start working when the egine is turned off.

there should be another option as per the user manual to lower suspension when gear is put on park position, but the option described isn't there! it's just missing :-(

Agreed, it's referred to in the manual.

I am having the same problem with the easy entry /exit. The dealer has been working with Chrysler and they determined that there was some kind of mismatch with my radio. They replaced my radio and it did not fix the problem. Now I have been working with a tech from Uconnect to register my radio. We have done several reboots including a hard reboot through the engineering menu. They said the registration problem is wide spread and is Being worked on I will find out more today when they call me back. I should have mentioned I have a 2014 GC Summit V6.

Please let us know what you learn, I am planning to bring my overland to the dealer soon and it would be good the have some reference info. My Uconnect is possessed at times!

Thanks

I was contacted by the tech from Uconnect today and they were able to register my new radio by doing something in the background. The new radio has a later revision of software than my original radio did. The new software did not solve the missing auto entry/exit choice on the suspension menu. The dealer is still working with Chrysler to resolve this issue. The tech I have been working with at the dealership said that they may just come back and say that there was a mistake in the manual. Sorry I couldn't report better news on this issue.

Thank you for all the research on this. We are picking up our overland next week and that is crap if this feature is not there. It is not a misprint as it fully talks about it in the owners manual. In addition I swear I have read something in a different Jeep communication. My wife was not sold on having to press the button each time to lower the suspension when we were told before sale that we could "easily" set this to do so automatically via u connect. I pray you hear a resolution for this soon so I may get it fixed before she starts chewing me about this feature not working.

Re: problems with Uconnect

I really think this will come into an update! Most likely a software issue than a mistake in the manual.

Is this different than the easy exit seat function? I have not seen anything regarding the suspension lowering (other than park mode), but the easy exit seating is nice and automatically lowers the seat and moves it rearward on pressing the ignition off button.

Is this what is being discussed? I can post photos if it is....
