8.4AN Fun new issues!

Well, 2 years now since the radio was replaced (right after i bought it) - some fun new features have appeared.
1) randomly decides that you are now ~1 mile eastish of your current location.. this is fun while using nav because it doesnt even stick to roads.
2) random station re-tune! preset #9 just decides to change to a new station.. and stays for a day or 2, then goes back!

love it...

1 year left... bye bye jeep

Re: 8.4AN Fun new issues!

I had my radio replaced...3 times, most recently in January. First long trip of the year and navigation froze twice in 2 days. I had to pull over, shut down, reboot etc.

Re: 8.4AN Fun new issues!

For what it's worth, when it flakes out hold the two buttons in the middle of the volume and tuning knobs down and it will reboot just the Uconnect system so you don't have to shut the car down and wait.

I've had to do it a couple times when it hung up.

It's the newer radio systems. My wife's highlander system is even worse. Good luck finding a car where it works 100% of the time. Those days are over

I've done this many of times when my nav shows me way off any roads and it doesn't fix it. a total shutdown of the car/radio is the only way to get it back up correctly.

Re: 8.4AN Fun new issues!

Waze. I have Nav in my GC, but don't even use it. Maps too old anyway. Free iOS/Android apps are the way to go. And that will still be true no matter which car you pick after ditching your Jeep.
