Also make sure the USB is FAT32 and the iso file is called swdl.iso

Not all 8.4 Uconnect units use the same firmware. As per the stickies for this forum section, there is North America and the Rest of the World, ie Export.

RA is Nth Murica, RG & RJ are two of the export models.

Sooo, this is a Nth Murica only update, not yet available for export. This is normal, one gets it before the other by a short time.

I can't believe they didn't add the theme function to this update like we have in the 2015. A whole year for this update i hope the reception is better cause i have a 2015 and a 2014 and the FM reception is pretty bad constant buffering in HD.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Anyone know if shuffle is retained between restarts when using an SD Card as the source?

That and the equalizer having to be "woken up" every time are two biggest annoyances.

Man that sucks! So hard to understand why that is such a difficult thing to do. Our 2015 Cherokee retains the shuffle setting between restarts (of course it doesn't have the EQ issue either) so I know it can be done!

Guess I'll keep the RAX software installed until they update, no reason to rush if they only fixed one of my two pet peeves.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Yeah the EQ "wake up" is always my automatic next step after pushing the start button. My wife laughs at me and other passengers always ask. Used to be annoying but now it is so automatic to me. Just a bit embarrassing that there is no fix for it. I have driven several 300's for rentals and they never have the issue. Also, they show cool album art on the Sirius screen. Cool little feature that takes you back when you see the old Led Zepplin or Stone Temple Pilot cover art that reminds you of the "old days."

Not to go completely off-topic but could you explain the "EQ wake up" issue? Did a quick search for that and it didn't come up. Haven't heard about that problem before.

Beacon, the "EQ wake up" is the fact that the EQ sounds rather "flat" until you change the setting. This needs to happen each time. Here is an example: You have the EQ set just the way you like it, but when you power off, it seems to quiet and flatten out the sounds. If you open the EQ when the vehicle is on, touch the bass up one. You will hear a significant increase in the sound quality. You can then bump the bass back down to the level you had it set at. Essentially, moving one of the factors on the EQ somehow "wakes up," for lack of a better phrase, the EQ and makes the sound so much better. It is most noticible on MP3, CD, or HD radio since the audio quality of Sirius / XM is rather flat and poor anyways. Let me know if you notice it. Once I noticed how much better the unit is with the EQ "woken up", I can't drive without doing it. Sorry if we just added a new compulsion for you. There may be a support group we can all join.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Did the update on my 2014 limited and audio still sounds bad IMO with tons of bass when playing the ipod and very little in XM. Haven't noticed much else except that the written warning that pops up on the screen when you start the car is about twice as long.

I did have the problem with the update not loading even when I formatted my flash drive to FAT32. Tried a few more times, then grabbed another flash drive and that one worked.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

@Diesel - haven't noticed that one (thankfully) but might need to test it out to be sure. Don't know if it makes a difference but I have the 9 speaker stereo.

I'm going to try to install the uconnect update this weekend. My radio hasn't been updated since the car was built last year so I know it's a couple updates behind.
