Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep to Offer CarPlay in Select Vehicles This Year - Mac Rumors

Quote:
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles ahead of CES today announced the fourth-generation of its Uconnect infotainment automobile system, which will bring Apple CarPlay support to select cars manufactured by the company in 2016
What's holding me off on ordering a 2016 vs a 2017 is finding out if the 2016 models will support carplay via a software or will it be exclusive to 2017 models. The 2016 models did get support for Siri eyes free this year. Also does anyone know if the infotainment screens are capacitive or resistive

I doubt 2014/15 GC's will see it though.

Well, 15 radio hardware was changed from 14 and software is not interchangeable between them and since 17 is getting new radio hardware I would highly doubt any upgrade path will b available...

I'm certain in my own mind there's no upgrade path- but i'm fairly certain there are posts on the net of people running the 15 version on 14 radios. If i recall people accidently did it initially as there wasn't a check in the initial installers to stop it. I also think the folks that make the rax software crack said they got the 15 to work on the 14 by just adding the proper drivers for the usb/sd card reader- as apparently that is the big hardware difference to the software (at least initially). So there's some fairly basics similarities at least. The refusal to perform updates for 14's seems to just be a management decision.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

I think a lot of these features are just what they decide we will have each year vs what hardware will support. they sat there and told everyone that SEND`N GO TO VEHICLE AND VEHICLE FINDER were a 2015 and 2016 option only, in fact the website still says that but in reality the 2014s ended up getting it. not saying that will happen with car play as I'm sure there are hardware limitations concerning significant changes. But if they are motivated they can do a lot more than they let on, I bet the only reason that we got send and go and vehicle finder on the 2014s is because they are trying to get the uconnect subscription rates up because I bet the take rate on the renewals after the free year is abysmal cause there is just not enough there to make it worth it.

That's because they have to show upgrades from year to year I order to entice consumers. I wish they allowed it to be upgraded tho

you really think a sizable number of people will buy an entirely new vehicle because the radio comes with a couple new features?

in my humble opinion the number of people that piss off by refusing to update things is more than the number of people that run out and will buy the next years model to get a new feature on the radio in the nav, etc.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

I could use some help on this update as I dont want to screw this up.

Im using a Mac and am eligible for the update on my 2015 Overland. I cant use the Akamai assist so I have to download the file directly from my browser. When I do so, I get the following Zip file which when clicked opens up the .iso attachment (see below)


When I click on the .iso file, it opens up into this:


What am I supposed to drag into my thumbdrive? Is it that entire "SWDL 3.iso" or am i supposed to drag a specific folder from the 2nd photo above?

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

I think you will need to use disk utility on a Mac to write the iso image to the USB drive not just copy to an already formatted USB thumb drive. I have a 2016 so don't need the update so I can't try it out.
