Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

Coming to the end of my trial in a couple of weeks. I don't plan to renew, as I never used its features. It would certainly be annoying to get that message on every start-up. Have others who's trial has ended and have not renewed experienced this, or is it an isolated fault?

Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

I don't plan on renewing my UConnect either... I really have no use for it.

SiriusXM and I will have a little talk about renewing that. They want more than double what I just got a renewal on my Honda Accord for.

From SiriusXM website;

"There are lots of ways to get SiriusXM in your other vehicle. Your other car or truck may already be equipped with satellite radio- in which case you just need to turn it on. You can even add that radio to your existing account (and receive a multi-subscription discount!). "

When my UConnect account expired on my 2014 Limited, I didn't remember any new messages that popped-up at start-up.

Thumbs up Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

An update - My software was updated by the dealer to the 12/2013 release before my UConnect trial expired.
After my initial post, I downloaded and installed the 2/2014 software update.
When I drove my Jeep for the first time after the upgrade, I received the dreaded "No active subscription" screen - but, after touching "Cancel" I have not seen that screen since.

Did anybody tried to haggle with them to get a better price? I would pay for this service 4.99 - 9.99. Not more than that!

Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

I went ahead and renewed at the $19.99/month price at the end of my trial period, then today I received an email from UConnect offering the next 12 months of the Advantage Package at $14.99/month if I resubscribed. I then called UConnect to ask for the lower monthly price; they checked and said my plan had already converted to $14.99/month for the next 12 months. Those of you currently subscribed to the $19.99/month plan, check your plan under your Profile at moparownerconnect.com and see if it has rolled over to the $14.99/month price - if it hasn't, call UConnect at 1-855-792-4241 and ask to be put on the cheaper monthly rate.

Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

I got the email as well, but 14.99 is still much for the limited options that come with this service. I will bite if they offer this for $50 a year and that's my absolute max.

Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

My year ran out Saturday. As I never used any of the features in the first year, I didn't see any reason to pay for more. I checked to see if it was shut off by trying to use Yelp, and it informed me I needed to pay for a subscription to use it. The aircard, however, is still functional, and I still get a signal strength reading.

Re: '14 - UConnect Access Trial Expiration and Renewal Cost

I got the same email and put it in the trash. Way to expensive for what they offer.

Maybe they should move it to $14.99 for a year for what they are offering and they may get a few more takers. lol
