Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

When I did a factory reset all the radio presets stayed the same.

At present there are some known anomalies when it relates to presets. They are not storing or recalling properly in some instances and this is supposed to be fixed in the next software update.

Factory resets will however erase all of the other information.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

The Uconnect 13.19.0 software update is officially out and Uconnect encouraged me to do it myself on my RA3. It was simple enough. All went well and confirmed at the end. Just download the SWDL.ISO file to a clean thumbdrive and follow the written instruction give by WILLx above. Unfortunately, the RA3 Bluetooth issues with my iPhone 3S are still there and worse than before. My son's iPhone 5 experiences the same issues in his 2014 Limited with RA4 (a month newer than mine). It skips through songs that are playing on the iPhone and makes the telephone audio sound scratchy. The dealer told us that these issues would be fixed by this new software flash. They have not. Now the XM has begun to have .5 to 1.5 second holes in the receive audio. Only had a few of those incidents on the old version.

I have noted, however, that the screen changes and channel changes are faster and smoother, but the head just doesn't meet my expectations for that class of vehicle. Off to the dealer I suppose.

Just an FYI, I have done extensive testing with the iphone 4, 4S and 5. I have not had any issues except once with drop out. I moved the phone closer to the radio (it fell behind a seat) and never had an issue since.

I have never had call quality issues with the radio.... Feel free to ask around but I don't believe that is a common complaint at all! so not likely anything to do with software.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

Has anyone noticed any changes with the HD radio performance on the 8.4AN units?

In the past 2 weeks, I lost the ability to get the HD signal from a couple of local stations. Even had one set as a preset and now I get silence. I can get the analog signal but the HD is not there anymore.

HD still comes in for some stations, but others I could get before, I cannot get now. I'm well within range so that should not be the issue.

Thanks for the note. When I first took delivery of my Jeep and experienced the Bluetooth issues, I did some searching on the web for clues. My iPhone 4 sits in the cupholder, inches from the UConn head. My sales rep had said that there was an issue with the way Apple wanted the Bluetooth to be handled and how the Jeep Bluetooth handles it. I did find web sites that had threads that seemed to confirm that it was an Apple-Uconnect issue. I can't find those posts at the moment but will share them if I find them again. Again, my son has the exact same issue with is iPhone 5 and his brand new GC Limited.
Either way, Willx, nice to know that somehow the marriage of those two products works properly for someone. Thank you. That's encouraging.

Re: UConnect 13.19.0 - Unofficial

I also have had no issue what so ever with my iPhone 5 and I have a GC Limited also with the 8.4AN head. Blue-tooth works just fine and messaging works also.

The only thing I wish that an update would change is when I plug my iPhone 5 into the USB port to record video while driving, I wish that the unit would not switch over to play music on the iPhone 5. Let me switch over if that is what I want!

After testing and verification the dealer is replacing the radio today. I will check the date code on it to see how new it is. Didn't get a chance to check the old one before I dropped it off a week ago Monday. I had been at the dealer and the salesman saw a blemish in the paint so they said we need to get that fixed for you. It was in a spot I would never have checked and even after a walk around three times I had never seen it. Get it back today with everything shipshape and radio replaced. Crossings fingers.

Unless you have a good shop backing you up, that can be a very stressful job.
