Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

You won't lose anything you currently have with your Droid. I'm very pleased with my iPhone 5 running iOS 6; no problems other than you still won't be able to reply via voice to text messages. You can, however, reply via voice using Siri on your iPhone (by holding down the Home button and dictating reply). Hopefully the release of iOS 7 on Wednesday will add positive enhancements to the iPhone's connectivity with Uconnect as opposed to removing capabilities. (Your iPhone 5S will come with iOS 7 installed.)

Northland - this is great news! Thanks for the quick reply and confirmation. I'm certainly keeping my fingers crossed the iOS 7 doesn't cause any loss of capabilities! Also hoping that we get the voice texting back with the 13.31.6 coming soon!

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

Started out in the Jeep this morning, by the time I got to the end of my driveway I had the "phone needs repair" splash screen on the display, a red light on my mirror, my presets were gone and the clock was stuck at 7:30.

Oh well took 3+ months and 3500 miles to show up.

As I was going to the dealer for service I added it to my list. They re-flashed with 13.19.0 (I had already done this) and all works again.

Waiting for the next release, hope it clears some of these problems up for good.

I would tell you to reinstall the update but your dealer is likely to return with a new version and the newer version anyway. If not they will have reinstalled 13.19.0 which can correct some of the regression problems.
And I quote the dealer, "Chrysler is aware of the UConnect issues and they do not have a solution at this time." Holy krist.

So they are going to give me back my vehicle after they replace a squeaky mirror. After that, I'm screwed. Not only will they not address the UConnect problems, they can't reproduce the folding mirror issues or Quadralift "stuck" issues. The videos make no difference. Just spoke to a lawyer and they confirmed this. Video is worthless but it makes good entertainment on YouTube. I think I'll be adding my collection to all the other YouTube videos out there.

Buyer beware!

On the contrary. It was the "B" side to "I Still Miss You Baby, But My Aim's Gettiin' Better."

I'm already on dealer #2. #1 said they didn't have the software and the "guy who does it" wouldn't be back until the following week. They haven't called back and I haven't volunteered to go back.

Bear in mind dealer #2 just said I already had the latest updates. #1 didn't even know what they were talking about...or #2 doesn't. Who knows which is right at this point.

We have one more dealer in the area and I might try them next. Just found out that Chrysler DOES reimburse for rental cars so frankly I don't care how many times I have to drop it off or how how long it's in as long as I get reimbursed. Just sucks to be paying monthly for a $50k car and I'm driving around in a $25k one.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

So I just picked up my 2nd JGC Limited - this one is for my wife. Has the build date as 8/13/13. The version of this UConnect is 13.29.8 as you can see in the attached picture. This is the first I heard of this version! Not sure why it didn't have the 13.31.6 - but it's close.

The good news is that the voice text reply does work! So they definitely fixed that. They changed the Controls icon, added a blue highlight around the 3G symbol on the Apps Icon. Also - the 3G icon went on right away - my vehicle I get the no signal symbol for a little while before the 3G lettering comes on. They also changed the order of the media buttons, demoting the SD Card to the bottom. They added a control to turn on and off the rear view mirror dimmer in the Controls section.

The quest for the latest UConnect software continues....

There are a number of versions around. I was playing with 13.31.2 on a RAM today (same radio platform)... Still no installable.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

Just to confirm, there is an actual update to correct the no A/C on remote start, correct?

Not sure if there is something else coming via a UConnect update, but there is a separate TSB released on 9/5 that deals with the HVAC shutting off whenever you open the door after a remote start. 24-002-13. It can be accessed here:
