Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Loaded 16.13.13 into my 2014 Overland. Loaded smoothly. Kept all my radio preset's and Nav Favorites. All my settings appear to be the same. SD card appeared the same with folders and artist browsing. SD card and radio played well.

In my brief driveway test, all seemed to work fine.

I have none of those symptoms. I don't think I'm going to fix something that isn't broken.

That update is for the MY 2016's that already have Siri etc. if you have a 2014 there are other updates out.

I'm not in any hurry as I don't have any of those issues either

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Hmmm. I'm not real thrilled about HD defaulting to off unless it retains the last selected mode. I listen to the local HD jazz station in all three cars and I would hate to have to hit a bunch of screen icons every time I start the car.

I got excited that they maybe reversed course on my biggest beef w/ the update (presence of a USB connection changes audio source to USB on every power up now), however I think this is just a TSB related to the same 4/21 update, as the SW version it references is what I am already on from that update (16.16.13) and the uconnect site only lists the 4/21 update...

Unless we're on different time scales and you meant the 4/21 update was an update to an update...

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

I wish I joined this forum before i purchased the UConnect Navigation upgrade, I probably ran this update 6 or 7 times before realizing that I had to stay in the car to keep starting it so the car wouldn't turn off.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

So I just got a new 2016. I updated to 16.9.9 (thru the Uconnect site, put my vin in) however I see some people here are on a higher version. Is 16.9.9 the latest for 2016 Jeeps or if not where can I get the latest version?

Just happened to me. Same spot as you. Just came on here to research it.

Thought I was going to lose everything but called UConnect and they had me reinsert the USB and then pull it the second it started over. This reset it to the old settings.

I was told this has happened to others and indicates a problem with the system and I won't be able to to the update myself.

Actually I was at the dealer today for the shifter recall and told them I was having issues with "Vehicle Phone Needs Service" message and also with the Navigation crapping out on me.

Was told my vehicle is out of warranty ( expired in May 2016)and it would cost $98.00 for them to have a look at it. Told them forget it and came home to try the update myself. Made it to the 75% mark and that was it.

Anybody have any suggestions?
