Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

So today while driving I received an email (definitely not a text message) on my BT connected iPhone 5 - the RA4 notified and read it as a text message. To my recollection, it didn't read emails aloud before the update - anyone else experiencing this? (Coincidentally, the email I received was a notification of a new post in this thread. I'm viewing this as proof of the existence of parallel universes that randomly intersect.)

Perfect. It is power by a singularity and is pulling updates from the parallel universe. It is all crystal clear now!

So I took the Jeep in on Monday and I was advised today that they will be replacing the radio unit. I am assuming my issues are hardware related and not software related. I guess I will see when I get it back later this week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Multiple reinstalls. Finally VR is working now, but my screen went totally dark today while I was driving and on a call. Hmmm!

I then updated the second FOB setting to where my wife wanted it with hers. Can't give specifics on the procedures as I had to do it so many different ways that I don't know what worked. Sorry.

Great advice. Sorry for the hijack.

This may happen once or twice after the reload due to some background stuff. If it keeps happening after a couple of days there is a problem (just from what I have seen)

Willx, do you know if there is something wrong with the new radios? I am just wondering what will be different with a new radio than the one that my Jeep was built with on 4/10/13. Has there been an issue that has been addressed?

I have no official data on what the issue is. All I can say is the first batch of Jeeps delivered seem to be OK and then there seems to be a bunch that had issues but not all of them. It is highly possible that when they stepped up production for the build that some quality issues in the build of the radio crept in at the Radio supplier.

Usually this type of issue will be identified and then corrected at the supplier. Sometimes there will be a case registered but more often than not with this type of problem it is "wait and see". If it is grounding or a mistake in connections at the factory level a Bulletin will be published. As the radios are currently just being replaced, my educated guess is the prior though.

I appreciate the insight you have given. Hopefully the new radio will be the solution.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Just to let you know, my Jeep was built on 4/6/13 at 9 a.m. and I'm not having any problems with Uconnect.

I am gathering data from many sources on this but it is very helpful if you tell us how your experience was with the replacement.

As Jacko has noted, there are many out there that work very well (with the exception of the Apps breeding and morphing in the background )
