Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

even though i have a '16 and don't expect this to apply, i went to the update site just to check. enter my VIN, get an error that reads:
Quote:
Error with VIN number
Sorry, and error has occurred. Please ensure that the VIN number you entered is accurate and that you are using a supported browser then try again.
really, FCA? an error with my VIN number? ok. i guess i'll check my NIC card after i make a trip to the ATM machine too.

did their web folks graduate 3rd grade?

From Wk2 Jeep's page:

It wouldn't surprise me if there were other enhancements not necessarily called out. Maybe I'm day dreaming but I thought the radio volume maxed out at 35 prior to the update. Today I noticed I could push it up to 38.

Should I remove the phone prior to the firmware upgrade? I tried doing it once and got sluggish SIRI response similar to yours (waiting to end Siri voice command)

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Hmm. I didn't remove my iPhone pairing before or after the install. Everything seems fine now into two days after the update.

If I do notice something strange in the coming days, I'll do the above suggestions.

I suppose you could remove it prior to the upgrade but I didn't remove mine until afterwards upon the recommendation from others who also reported sluggish behavior. Others, such as the previous poser haven't reported the problems I and others have experienced.

Thanks, Kevin T. Hopefully no issues. I read through the update instructions and no mention you have to unpair existing phones. It did mention in step 3:

"Please remove all devices (SD/USB/AUX) from the media hub

Which is the hub in the centre console. Doesn't hurt to remove pairing and could only be better as reported.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

I updated my '14 GC Uconnect; on both it and my '16 Ram I have to unlock my iPhone 6's screen (by using fingerprint on home button or PIN) before a press and hold of the VR button activates Siri. Is that just me, or do others have to unlock the screen as well? If that's the way it's designed, it's just as easy to press and hold the home button on the iPhone to activate Siri since I'm there anyway.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Tried to install the update today but keeps locking up at 1% on module 10 and eventually gives me a sierra wireless card error. Not sure what to do or how to get the old firmware back. I hope I didn't brick my Uconnect. I was having trouble with the vehicle phone requires service intermittently before this....

If you do the power cycle in the instructions normally done at the end of the upgrade, do you get anything back on your Uconnect? If you do, and you have the older ISO image, you can just install it.

If it refuses to boot now, you will likely need dealer help.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Try installing from a different USB stick before you take it to the dealer - I remember several instances in the past where that resolved installation problems.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Make sure your USB is FAT32 format and not NTFS
Also ensure you do the "double door open and shut" at the end.......
