RA3 AND RA4 RADIO OVER THE AIR SOFTWARE UPDATES (v17.11.07)

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0802817.pdf

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The following improvements are included in this update:
• Adds Apple Siri® Eyes Free capability for iPhone® owners.
• Auto Play can now be configured.
• Adds do not disturb text message feature.
• The ability to drag and drop icons into the menu bar.
• Fix for radio locks up/frozen.
• Fix for stuck on black/blank screen.
• Human Machine Interface (HMI) improvements.
• Several navigation improvements.
• Fix for radio loses time.
• Charge Complete notification is not received (RU PHEV only).
• Media devices, Phone pairing and Bluetooth usage improvements.
• Improved tuner performance.
• Enhanced Voice recognition (VR) performance.
• Enhancements in Connectivity Apps (Yelp, Pandora, Aha, etc).

DISCUSSION:
All MY13-16 vehicles sold in the U.S. with the RA3 or RA4 radio can now receive software
updates “over-the-air”. Updates to software level 17.11.07 will occur in a phased roll-out.
The software is updated through the built-in cellular modem in the radio which is
connected to the Sprint® 3G network. Customers will see a notification on their radio
screen when new software is available for their radio (Fig. 1). The owner will have the
option to update the radio or schedule the update for later. There is not an option to
decline the update indefinitely. The update must be performed.

Says nothing about "Phone requires service" message I'm getting along with clock losing time.

Re: RA3 AND RA4 RADIO OVER THE AIR SOFTWARE UPDATES (v17.11.07)

well its about time should have been that way when I bought it 4 years ago. At least they didn't leave us in the dust and make it for only new models going forward. be nice if they did that for the maps also but probably too much data there for OTA.

Wow, assuming this doesn't get us hacked and killed, this is awesome!! Will be nice to have this feature.

I agree with the map updates; that would be amazing too.

Re: RA3 AND RA4 RADIO OVER THE AIR SOFTWARE UPDATES (v17.11.07)

I'd rather do the update myself with a usb drive. I don't like being distracted with something like this when I'm on the road. I know you can put it off, but for how long. I don't see the update available on the Uconnect update site. Hope it will soon be available there.

I Agree 100%. Hope we can USB it, but I doubt we'll be able to.

Last step of the TSB says:



"Station presets, Bluetooth phone pairings and other preferences may need to be set again."


Well that is bull crap. I don't want to have to be re-pairing phones and searching for my favorite stations every time they decide to do a software update to my working perfectly well radio. That is the only good thing I have had to say about their updates....they never lost my Bluetooth and presets because they saved them off to the USB stick and restored them.


If my wife is gone somewhere and an update runs and her phone no longer works and the '60s disappears from her presets.........she is going to be pissed.

Wonder how this will affect those of us with the Customtronix or other mods installed...

Was thinking the same thing.

They will likely have an update available shortly after the over the air one rolls out but could get annoying if they send out updates too often. Maybe they can turn off this "feature".
