Uconnect Background change?

Anyone come up with a way to change the background? Why not offer this as a setting option to begin with? The stock background looks like a dry lake bed, would be nice to change to something to fir individual tastes.

No, not yet.

So in the meantime just keep your eyes on the road.

Re: Uconnect Background change?

you cant on the 8.4an (the 2014 uconnect) you can on the previous model.

Currently, the BG is dependent on what trim level you have. mine (Limited) is a dark "wood"

Re: Uconnect Background change?

Ford's Sync system allows one to do this, which is about the only good thing I have to say about Sync. Doesn't seem to be a way to do this on the Jeep nav system.

Re: Uconnect Background change?

I'd assume it's all pretty cut and dry (same with the TFT).

Probably not that hard to crack open the code at some point and root around to add customization of backgrounds and such.

Re: Uconnect Background change?

no, that parts easy. The issue is that the code is "signed".. so putting it back together is hard. I have pulled it open and found all the images. Would be nice for them to allow this

If you have read the hundreds of posts here about radio problems, and software upgrades, and you still want to monkey with the code, have fun!

I did the same on my desktop computer ... and shut off the wifi on my computer to make sure I didn't somehow send something to my Jeep.
