2014 Limited radio/media uconnect questions

Currently, even if my radio or media is off when I shutdown the car, upon startup the radio/media defaults to on. I do not see a setting to change this in the menu. Is this the way it is suppose to work, and do any software updates change this?

Problems with backup camera

Anyone experiencing issues with the backup camera on the 2014 GC Overland?Mine appears too bright compared to my 2011 GC Limited. Dealer says it's fine but it appears too washed out for my taste.

The radio is never off, only muted. Your situation is normal.

Thanks Bill, likely the one thing I didn't know until now. I am always listening to the radio or focused on something that someone asked me about when I enter the vehicle. Never thought to think if it was off or on .

This is unusual but makes sense since the entire head unit IS the radio -kind of odd. I wonder if those Cadillac's with the touch screen acts the same

I do have the answer to this, yes the CUE system works very similar. It simply uses a motion detect to bring up the menu access however it is always running even if you request screen off. Muting is shutting the amp down and saving energy.

Re: 2014 Limited radio/media uconnect questions

Just wondering if everyone else pays more attention to the start up screens than I do. I just realized that the light blue screen that has the disclaimer on top, has controls on the bottom for the heated/ vented seats. By using these buttons you can set the seats before the radio screen pops up.

If everyone else knew this, why didn't you tell me?

No worries, PM me if you need some help or have a question. I make no apologies about this stuff because I honestly am not directly involved. I just have a lot of knowledge about how this process plays out and the unit you have has great possibilities.

If you really want to know, radios havn't truely shut off while the vehicle is on in over a decade. A 2006 Torrent would actually not even run without the radio, it was on a shared buss.

Yep, I did not notice this at first, but now I notice it every time, right before the radio comes on hahah. Seems just like my computer at home, if I put it in reverse before it boots ups all the way, it will lag going to the back up camera.
