I don't expect every feature to be resolved this round. Sounds like in IOS 7 they are using a more standard Message Access. Certainly the developers are looking at the forward thinking but I don't think that every phone will ever work with all fetures seamlessly on all OS version... cough cough...

There is only like 5 versions for the MyGig radios drifting around and that happened over years. We are on the 3rd or 4th major release in 5 months. Chrysler is pretty good at getting the stuff updated. Again not an excuse but more a "this is getting better pretty quicky"

Thanks for the support Sno!

Probably defaulted the view to 2D. RHR I did this morning did the same thing in the update...

The most noticeable change for me was the street names. They are in bubbles now instead of on the street itself. I'll take a picture at lunch.

That is either a maps setting or something to do with 3d

I would like to see anybody with concerns about how their air conditioning works with remote start try this update. As noted in my post I don't think that this was fixed but there's also improvements to high temperature user experience. I believe this changes the cooling during hot weather for everyone not just the people who have the problem??

On your iPhone, go into Settings--> Bluetooth, then touch the blue arrow next to "Uconnect" under Devices and turn on Show Notifications - this is what enables the RA4 to receive/display/read aloud incoming texts to your iPhone.

Only for the 2014 model. That is a different system.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

Just did the update. Haven't had time to play with it very much, but a few things I noticed:

Bing is back, Yelp is gone, says it won't work without a connected smartphone.

Got "radio needs service, see dealer" message. Pressed OK, it went away and everything seems to be working. Will watch for its return.

TravelLink weather map renders much quicker than before.

Touchscreen response is faster.

EQ reset to default.

All other personal settings stayed the same.

HD radio is on.

Will have to play with it more when I get time. The update seemed to go smoothly, but the last few steps flew by quickly, and then the "radio needs service" screen came up, and the screen went to the FM radio. I waited a minute or two before it went to the final "compare versions" screen.

It told me update was successful, so for now, I will take the radio's word for it.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

So I test drove it after the update and noticed that less streets have names on them. Not sure why. Yes, I changed all the views (2D, North up, 3D). Response is faster. Voice works better. Voice actions are waaaay faster. Navigation is way faster.

Remote start still killed fan when door opens and didn't start it back up after hitting the start button. Had to hit the Auto button to get the A/C fan going again. It was below 80 degree outside but that shouldn't matter for it remembering the settings.

Noticed that voice request for "find nearby restaurants" only shows 6 results with NO scroll bar (same with gas). Also, Travel Link POI restaurants only shows a few pages within a few miles but if you sort by type (say American) then you get many more pages of results. Why not just show all of them?

I am glad these updates are coming fast, but I do wish they would fix the obvious things like remote start/AC issue.
