Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I probably won't get it back until Friday to test it out as they are waiting for some additional parts to fix some other issues as well as this but will update this thread once I do. I will keep driving the Dodge Grand Caravan loaner until then....

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Well, I switched my phone back to my old Samsung Captivate to see if it really was a "compatibility issue," and I am having the exact same BT problems I had with my Galaxy Note 2. I told the dealer that, but they are saying that Chrysler has to authorize the replacement of the radio...

So, we'll see what they say later today.

I am familiar with the CDJ warranty approval process but they shouldn't mix that in with your phone issues. The radio doesn't work as designed, despite what they are suggesting Android has certain commonalities in how it talks with Bluetooth. As long as it is a more current phone (yours is one of the newest), there really should be no problem. If it pairs and it says it can play it pretty well means it should work.

I know I posted somewhere else here about my Chevy Equinox problem. I would use that theory, test it in another vehicle on the lot is always a good trick. Works there should work in yours the same!

Test in any other car, or test in another GC?

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Todays update;

Tailgate is back to needing 4 clicks, whether the Jeep is locked or open. This is silly, but doesn't really matter.

When I switched to sand mode going on the beach, I still had to raise to ORI by pressing the button.

But when I went back in to sand mode to leave, the Jeep stayed in ORI. The last few times it lowered itself.

Oh yeah, on my way to the beach, cruising at 55 in eco mode and the suspension in aero mode ... got the suspension is cooling flash on the screen. It didn't stay on, and the car raised to normal mode as I slowed into the parking lot.

The worst thing ... no fish AGAIN

Just to clarify a few things about uConnect access and registering etc... The trial starts when the car is sold not when you activate according to care. I am part of a pilot program called FastTrack where they will release Beta software for me to test ie: via mobile, yelp, etc... The guy I speak to at uConnect is an engineer and that was his stance on the one year trial. Not sure how accurate he is just thought I'd share it with the forum.

He must have read the manual.

" Your new vehicle may come with an included trial period for use of the Uconnect®Access Services starting at the date of vehicle purchase."

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Took my vehicle in for the system locking up and freezing. Dealer could not replicate but I had taken several videos of it resetting. They talked to stars and were advised to order a new unit. Lets hope thus helps, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Still wish the remote start would turn the ac on. Told me system is not supposed to.

I will see if I can make a video of this working in a JGC for everyone (auto A/C on remote start) but I can't guarantee I will get to it quickly.... Need to keep up the "paid" work . Will try to help out where I can.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Well, I am at a loss with this BT issue. Chrysler will not replace my radio unless I can reproduce the issue on one of the compatible phones (there's only like 10 of these found here Uconnect™ | Select your Vehicle). I can borrow one of those phones but it also has to be same version they list as compatible and I can't find the right combination. This sucks.

Word to the wise, if anyone has BT issues and are taking it in to the dealer, just say you use one of the compatible phones. The dealer never checked what phone I actually had and I would have a new radio if I just said I used one of those phones.

EDIT: Well, I was able to track down an iPhone 4 that was listed as compatible and I could not reproduce the issue, but I couldn't spend that much time trying. I really want to try it with one of their compatible Android phones, but I can't find any of those with the right carrier/version combo.
