Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Has anyone in Australia updated their uconnect with 15.26.1. The uconnect website states that my JGC Limited qualifies for this update but when I viewed the tsb it appeared to only apply to North American JGC's.

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Yesterday Uconnect "froze" on me.

It was on Nav when I last used the car, so it was at the main maps menu where it has the options to view map, where am I, information, etc.?

Anyway, I tapped on "View Map" to display it. But nothing happened. Then I tapped on Information. Again, same result.

Then I tapped on other options such as radio, media, settings, etc. Again, nothing.

But, if I raised or lowered volume for the radio, used the browse dial to change radio freqs, or raised and lowered cabin temp setpoints, they would all display where they normally do at the top of the screen. etc.

Except for one thing. There was no sound from the radio like it was muted. I'd tap the mute button and that would display, untap it and raise/lower volume, whilst it showed the percentage level on the screen there was still no sound.

When I selected reverse the camera appeared.

So, it appears other functions were working in the background. Just that it was stuck on the main nav screen (except for when reverse was selected).

Later on after I got home I went out again. It worked fine after that.

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Remember these two options, I bet a re-boot would have helped.

Uconnect Re-boot:
Hold Mute and Tune buttons for reboot.
This makes no changes to your settings, it is just a reboot procedure.

Uconnect Factory (Engineering) reset:
Hold temp up and down buttons to access engineering menu.
This will wipe all of your personal settings and take it back to factory default. It will also load with the SRT logo and take several minutes to hours before it will look the same as it did before.

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Thanks Snuke. If it happens again I'll reboot it.

One thing that I wish that I could do with Uconnect is to assign shortcuts. I find it irritating that to access the Nav's trip computer that I have to make a number of keypresses (or taps) to get to it from the map screen. Further, I wish that I could assign the GPS speed to the map screen. It's the only accurate "speedo" that the Jeep has (mine's fast by about 3 km/h in the higher range).

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Mine is out by 2km/h, but I know this so it is not an issue, I just adjust it in my head. Same for Falcons, they have always been out by 2km/h.

TMC in the UK is broke. I have been told that Harmon Kardon (as they make the head unit) are doing an update that will allow some functionality of live traffic to come from your smart phone via an app to your head unit.

Not sure when, I have been told the smaller uconnect will be first quarter 2016 as for ours, no idea.

Just for info, put the pressure on your dealer.

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Hi what is the latest uconnect update?
Have entered vin into the online uconnect software update and tells me there is an update but comes up with an error screen. I have emailed customer support and have not heard back from them was 2 months ago lol. I dont have sat nav and anywhere else i can get the update from? Apart from the service department as they were not keen on booking a car in just for this. Sorry if this post is in the wrong place.

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Hello All,

I have 15.26.1 running now for a number of weeks and touch wood, all good. I have also been able to setup Text Messaging where I can listen to an incoming message, cool feature, now just waiting for Siri to be released here in Australia so that we can reply.

By the way, has anyone been able to find somewhere that does navigation map updates other than what FCA have released? Would be interested to hear where and if it works.

Regards, JosephR
