Yep- the nav volume resets to a preset level after you have turned off the car and restart it.
There is a nav volume setting in the uconnect settings but that too seems reset back to -IIRC- 9 every single time I start the car. Perosnally I'd like it to be 2 or 3 ALL the time- but it just wont stick.
I have a 2014... Durango.
The guts of the software seems to be the same for EVERY vehicle that uses this particular hardware- if you dig through the image you can find piles and piles of features and skins for other vehicles. Not just jeep and dodge but it also comes with fiat, freightliner, massaretti, all the chrylser brands, etc. If you factory restore it will first boot to an SRT install no matter what brand you have. So the flaws/bugs likely exist not just GC/Durango but in piles of vehicles.
I wouldn't hold your breath for them to add an option you want.
There are known bugs they can't seem to get around to fixing.
There are other UI issues that they have ignored and in fact carried over flaws from years old systems - for instance- despite having the ability to record a buffer and pause/ff/rw they HIDE the features on another page. Instead of just adding a play/pause button you have to hit a button to call that page up and then the same button to banish that page.
Then things that worked great in past generations they changed- for instance the 'sync' button doesn't lock the passenger and driver temps until disabled like 3 previous Chrysler corp vehicles i'v had doing that. Now it syncs when you tap the button but as soon as you do something beyond temp up or down it forgets it should be synced and you have to re-sync. So if - heaven forbid- you press the front defrost button when you windshield is frosty it un-syncs and you have to search around on the touchscreen for the sync button.
Seems there are not major issues left but that just makes the small issues left cringe-worthy that they are "this close" to a great system. Instead they seamed to have settled for "just better than all the other crap". Overall, It's better than anything I've ever seen but it is still far from perfect.
