Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I just ran this update on my new 2014 JGC Overland and it actually showed up the new via mobile apps (slacker radio, pandora, etc.) I clicked the pandora app, but it said it needed to connect via a valid account. I already set it up on the uconnect mopar site with my username and password for my Pandora ONE account. Has ANYONE else gotten it to work via mobile? BIG THANKS to the OP!! YOU ARE THE MAN!!!

Some features are not fully supported yet. Many said July launch but I don't have an activated radio so other know more than I for this.

I had 13.05 (yes, OLD!) and just upgraded to the 13.19. I have actually been fairly happy with the original, hence the delay in upgrade. My only problems were:
- Recognizing Nav input via text was bad enough I never used it; I would pull over to enter addresses.
- Text messaging readout and text via Voice were sporadic at best.

My upgrade experience was similar to Bill's - everything upgraded without issue but on the first reboot I got the service 911 message. I have not seen it since. It did freeze @40% on the Sierra piece for a good 3-4 minutes, but kept going and didn't require me to reinsert the USB.

The screens are definitely more responsive. Other than that I don't see much change in the overall functionality from what I had.

My notes:
1. Text messaging was very, very sporadic and doesn't work at all at this point. This had quit working on 13.05 and remains the same now. I have a Galaxy S4 that worked fine for a bit, but now the message screen is blank. Based on other posts, I'll whack the history and see where that gets me. (I actually had a hunch that it was either a. the number of messages, or b: group messages that killed it).
2. My seat ventilation comes on 'Lo' when I get in. It would be nice if the order was changed from "Hi->Lo->Off" to "Lo->Hi->Off" so I don't have to hit the button twice if I want to increase it. If I caught your latest remarks though, we should understand that this is in the firmware and not software though?
3. HD Radio sub-channels stop playback when you tune to them directly. In other words, on the old system, if I was on 94.5.1 and hit my preset to 95.7.2, the radio would actually tune to 95.7.1 immediately and then 'fade' into 95.7.2 once the HD buffer filled after 1-2 seconds. Now, that 1-2 seconds is filled with silence. Not sure if I care, just was something immediately noticed.
4. EQ was reset. It appears that all other personal settings/presets are there.

If there is a way help beta test, I'd be more than happy to do it. Hell, I'd be happy to help them develop pieces - can we open source it?
I lost the AM and FM presets, XM presets remained. Also EQ settings changed to middle.

The HD option doesn't stay on and hasn't since the last update and I still can't get the fuel saver mode to stay checked. I see no difference in the system response and touch screen response and it reads the SD card at the same speed as previous. I'll keep an eye out, but so far this has been a slight downgrade due to the sat radio issue.
My Fuel Saver Mode stays checked but for over 3 months now, I've never seen the message displayed anywhere.

There is something in the indicator banding in the Fuel display on the dash. Cant remember if it shows a color ranging or something? But no there is no "ECO" status in the display like before.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

So I updated to the 13.19.0 without issue. Seems slightly faster response exchange between icons on the uconnect screen. I have noticed two things that I'd like to ask you guys:

1. is there supposed to be a blue LED ring around the USB and SD card ports? If so, mine have never worked...

2. I notice the Jeep icon on my nav look larger than the other vehicle icons... to include the halo color has lines through it and the halo color itself does not always switch between white and black when the nav goes from daylight to nighttime driving. The other icons work fine.

Anyone else notice these?

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

The lights around my usb only come on if my headlights are on, manually. Therefore, I never see them.

Oh, that explains it. I'll have to watch for it tomorrow on the way to the dealers.

Updated mine last night, no major changes IMO. Bluetooth audio still randomly skipping on my gn2. As far as folks with ac/remote start issues, I wouldn't expect any updates for the radio to fix this. I'm no expert, but I suspect the radio is a mere proxy relying messages to/from other modules/controllers in the car via the data bus.. There are probably at least 50 different modules/controllers in a summit for example, all with their own firmware and therefore buggy issues. These modules can only be updated at dealer with a witech scanner by a tech that will likely argue with you when you ask them to apply any avail code updates... I long for the day when the end user can do their own updates ... But since that would keep chryco from getting $4000 for witech hardware plus subscription fees, I doubt it will happen. Meh..
