But the act of opening the equalizer and making one small adjustment (say dropping the midgrange by a notch) and the radio seems to apply a different eq profile.

There's a thread about this over in the VIP area of the forum. Several people have reported the same thing. I checked mine yesterday and sure enough, it does the same.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

I installed the Uconnect upgrade this weekend. The back-up camera works perfectly now - no stutter and no grainy image. I didn't check to see if the mute stays on after a power down and restart, or if the screen returns to the previous one after a phone call. I will check on those items tomorrow.

The 2015 I picked up over the weekend has a slightly newer version of UConnect than the one available here and on the UConnect website. 14.25.11 I believe. Seems to work pretty well overall. Manually moving around/exploring the map NAV screen is terrible though and pretty much not worth the effort and lag.

The sirrius traffic actually worked really well leaving DC and saved me a bunch of time.

Premium membs download direct from this forum, otherwise add the Uconnect website to allowed sites in security settings.... The cure all is to install Safari for Windows and it will work perfectly with Uconnect. I have win 8.1 am very techy and couldn't get it and akamai to play nice with any browser except Safari.

Ya that won't work with all 8.1 installs, there are conflicts that the akamai client has with some web server settings and how you obtain your dns, firewall setup, etc..

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Luckily I still have a working XP machine available. It works great with IE8.
