It didn't wipe anything on my radio.

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available for 2013+

It did not wipe out any of my presets. Also, be sure you remove the UConect pairing from your iPhone, reboot, then pair again. After I did the update, the Siri functionality was very sluggish until I did this---so thank jacko for that recommendation

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available for 2013+

So I ran into this video highlighting the improvements of this new version. Hope you find it useful just like I did:

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available for 2013+

On my 2014 Summit, do I need both the iso and exe files on the usb, or just the exe file? tia

Aren't most of those features new to the '16's as opposed to backward compatibility with '15-13's? I don't particularly care about most of that stuff but Siri Eyes Free is great. I'm thankful FCA made this feature backward compatible.

I'm pretty sure I read that most of the 2016 enhancements require the 2016 hardware as well as the software updates. I'm glad, though, that they are enhancing earlier systems with Siri Eyes Free and whatever else it does on my '15 model.

You just need the .ISO file on the USB.

That's what I thought as well regarding the 2016 enhancements which the video seems to show quite a bit of. None the less interesting to watch. I'm with you, I'm very happy to see they're updating earlier systems with enhancements. That is encouraging news. Perhaps we'll see a few more. Siri Eyes Free and Send & Go are great.

I removed the uConnect pairing from my iPhone Bluetooth settings and rebooted the iPhone.....Plugged the flash drive with the one .iso file into the usb port.....got the screen pops and clicked ok to update. After the update completed, paired the iPhone with no difficulty. All presets, one touch dials, etc are still there. SIRI EYES FREE seems to be working perfectly using the VR button on the steering wheel. I did not notice any other enhancements to the menus but I suspect there are probably some hidden subtle enhancements depending upon what year and version is being updated. Mine is the 2015 Overland High Altitude without dvd entertainment. Thanks for all the help I have gotten on this thread.

Unless you have a 2016/17 model... Nothing more will magically appear.
