That duplicate song title fault is not seen at its fullest extent. I've had songs listed as many as 4 times in some of the folders. And the radio would play them all.

Milous, so is this security fix to also help prevent thieves from popping locks with those handheld devices you read about? or what is the main threat that they are focused on when they say "unlawful access to vehicle systems" If they are plugging security holes on the vehicle im surprised they didn't make this an RRT?

Also are the 2014 radios done concerning any functionality updates? in the year since the july 2014 update this update is just a security fix and few bugs fixes on repetitive song listings. are we baselined on the 2014s and probably not going to see any changes or are there potential updates coming that may make someone actually want to pay the $15 a month they want for the uconnect subscription? thanks!

Both of the TSB's were also issued with RRT's (see Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2016 Grand Cherokee Service Bulletins and Recalls). Not sure of the exact security issues that are being addressed. There will be future updates for 2014 radios, don't have any specific details at this time.

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

I applied the update a few days and it did resolve jittery rearview camera video. Before the update, the video would sometimes skip. Other than that, I haven't noticed any differences.

Hey, it supposedly fixes track names... I noticed the track information didn't match the song from time to time when using my iPod. I wasn't sure if it was a problem with the iPod (i.e. corruption) or Uconnect. If the problem goes away, then that is at least something... (grin)

Not sure if you looked up the TSB linked on page 1 of this thread and read the detailed info on the symptoms/fixes. There is more than a security fix:
