2014 sd card capacity?

What is the biggest card that you can stick it into uconnect? SDHC goes up to 32GB but there 64GB cards out there. I googled that and somebody is saying 32 but somebody else was able to do 64 after formatting it.

No HDD in 2014 so this is the only storage. Did anybody tried it allready?

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

32 Gb of MP3s is a lot of music to start with. while am curious myself, i doubt a 32 Gb size limit would be of any real world consequence. What I want to know is if it prefers a particular speed Class or I can just recycle my old cards.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

Speaking of storage, I know a usb thumb drive will draw a small amount of current when left plugged in, even if the vehicle if shut down (probably not enough to hurt the battery). Will an SD card do the same? And I'm also interested in answers to the previous questions. And why no hard drive in the '14?

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

So I found some information here:
SD Card Reader Specs

and here:
Uconnect and SD cards - New Dodge Dart Forum

But this is for Dart (I would imagine the same UCONNECT, right?) . Seems like people were able to get 64GB cards working but there is some kind of number of song limit there ... depending where you read it is either 4999 or 5999, some say per folder, some say per card. Not sure what the truth is.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

[QUOTE=jacko15;771671And why no hard drive in the '14?[/QUOTE]

I actually like SD card approach. HDD is a mechanical device and no matter how well you shock proof it it will sooner or later fail. For the same reason Apple is not using HDDs in iPods anymore. This and obviously they are bigger/heavier. SD card will not fail and even if it does you get a new one. Also you can have multiple cards so if your wife wants to keep her library she just plugs it in and off she goes.

In MY2011-13 they used to put some stuff on your HDDs so eventhoug it said 32GB you only had like half of it available for you.

I agree with this 100%. I was surprised to hear people complaining about it initially; I thought it was a great solution. And for a "normal" compression, 32gb is going to be 6000+ songs (for anyone who wasn't sure)

The better solution would have been to include a CD player that ripped to the card. That way you can record while you drive, instead of having to go through this step before playing your music in the Jeep. The new system creates more work for the customer, and that is not a step forward.

Who uses CDs anymore? All my music has been in mp3 format for a decade now. Putting it on an SD card or USB key is a breeze. Good move by Jeep to put an SD card slot and USB plug in the storage bin.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

Didn't realize until after I got my 14' Limited that it didn't have a CD player.. lol

Does anyone know if it's pre-wired to add the cd/dvd player?

They make SSD Hard Drives. Shockproof 100%

And the interior of a vehicle isn't THAT bumpy of a place, and most HDD failures will happen either under warranty or well into the future.

The biggest issue with USB/SD storage is indexing. On an internal HDD, the unit can keep track of where everything it has on it when its loaded in. This makes for fast startup times, and fast use. On an external device like an SD card or USB stick, it takes time for the device to be read and indexed, and on a large drive that could be minutes. That's an intolerable amount of time to wait for my music.

The lack of a HDD and the lack of Garmin software are two MASSIVE mistakes they made here. I know it sucks paying licensing fees, but the Garmin nav was a major selling point for Jeep.

Probably still to early to tell, but even if it is, they probably need to activate it before you can even use it.

Re: 2014 sd card capacity?

When I put music from a CD onto a flash drive and transfer it to my Jeep, it puts the songs in alphabetical order, instead of the order on the CD. It's really annoying.
