Re: PSA: You may want to hold off on Uconnect 5/2016 update

A pattern has developed in my case. When I drive to work in the morning, the radio switches to media when I get a quarter of a mile away from my house. On the way home, it switches to media when I am 50 yards from my house. It makes no difference which direction I go or come from. It is always the same. It does not switch anywhere else.

I will be going out of town with my GC in a couple of weeks. I will report back if it happens without be near my house.

Possibly triggered by your phone switching to/from wifi?

I was thinking the same thing. I will turn off my phone's wifi when I leave work. And do it again when I depart for work in the morning. I will report the results.

Update: With wifi off as I approached home, the random switch did not happen. I will do the same as I leave home tomorrow. I think this is the bug.

Now confirmed. With WiFi turned off on the phone, the random switch from radio to media does not happen. I turned on WiFi some miles past the spot where the random switch happens and all was good.

This suggests it might be more about it connecting/disconnecting from an itunes server in your home. The Jeep/iphone combo may see that as a media source being plugged/unplugged.

Re: PSA: You may want to hold off on Uconnect 5/2016 update

I should have mentioned that early this morning I had the WiFi off while driving to the gym. Before I turned the engine off, I turned on the phone's WiFi (the phone automatically joins the gym's WiFi) and the random switch to Media occurred. So I think this bug will occur when you are in range of any known WiFi network that you automatically join.

Re: PSA: You may want to hold off on Uconnect 5/2016 update

Does anyone have LTE data on their phone? My data on my phone is constantly on and it does not connect to any WiFi source.

The only time I notice switching to media to automatically play on my iPhone is when I was using my phone last on the Nav as my media source. Before I leave the car, I switch it to radio and the next time I come back to the vehicle it doesn't connect any longer.

I don't know if this is connected to the issue discussed though. But just letting you know that the Nav will try to automatically play the source it was last connected to.

Anyone else have the issue of their radio randomly changing stations on its own?

Changing stations? No. My problem is the random changing of source to Media.

How often does this occur? Is it just changing stations or changing media? - Kevin T, Social Connect Team

Sorry for the delayed response. It is changing stations. I noticed it when I was driving the car last week and found it very frustrating. My fiancÚ drives the car daily and says that it happens frequently since the last update. I will see if I can record it happening with my phone the next time I'm in the car.
