Please describe your "transmission clunking". Think I may have an issue, too, but I'm not certain if it's an actual issue or just the normal function of the new trans. Sometimes when accelerating from a stop in 1st gear (auto mode of course) it goes normal and then feels like someone bumps the rear of the vehicle. Almost like it's taking up driveline slack, but pretty hard. May be something I need to mention to the dealer when I take it in for its first oil change.

You can always try the "The Sean Transmission Reset"

I Think I Fixed My Rough Shifting 8sp Transmission

Thanks to GCLimited. Has fixed for most.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

The compatibility wizard needs to be updated. It does not show the latest software compatibility for smart phones. For instance for Verizon Samsung smart phones it list only the Nexus which Verizon no longer carries and for Apple I5 it list the EOS system as 6.0 but Verizon shows 6.1.1. and the 6.0 for the 4s. It would be helpful for members that have the 8.4 AN to post what cell phone and carrier they have and if all functions are working. I put in an inquiry to Samsung noting that their S4 is not listed by Uconnect as compatible and asked them to check it out. I need to buy a new smartphone to go with my new on order GC and want to make sure all will work correctly.

If you guys are interested I am able to test the Galaxy S4 on a UConnect 8.4an

This whole compatibility thing is BS. They need to stick to a Bluetooth standard and revision. Then you can check which Bluetooth version is on your phone and know. Software in the background is almost irrelevant (almost)

More and more I'm seeing that it doesn't really have to do with the phone model so much as it does it seems to be issues with individual radios. I can't say that for sure because I've certainly seen were address books in phones are little bit messed up but that seems to be the trend.

I say this only because I seen people with that exact same iPhone have issues syncing their entire address book but it does not seem to be the phone

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I owe somebody a thank you for pointing out that they found a way to shuffle within a folder, but I forget who.

Anyway, I was playing music from an SD card today. I was in shuffle mode and the counter showed 1600+ songs. I hit the vr button and said, "play genre country". It stayed in shuffle mode and reduced the number of songs by a third. It only played country songs in random order. It also worked for a selected artist.

The engine and transmission worked too. But the important thing is that we can decide what to shuffle.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the connect update.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I'm really not impressed with UConnect. I understand its in the beginning stages but I would think they would have beta tested this software far in advance to get all these glitches out. I'm also not very happy with the non existent content currently available. Speaking of content, what's forecasted for the near future, does anyone know? Per the UConnect website I have the most current version but I feel that it is still sluggish. I've tried numerous times to get various medias to play from either SD, or USB with no such luck. Music is formatted MP3 with tag 2.3 I believe in Itunes. Not sure if the tag effects it from being able to play. Every time I put the SD card in it looks like its loading and said please wait....... And that's all it does. It does play from the Iphone via bluetooth but It only plays random songs and it doesn't give me the option to search for artists/songs. Not sure if this is just a separate case or we all have the same problem, regardless I hope they update this feature.

Lastly, I cannot get the A/C to work with the auto feature, i've searched here but didn't find a fix. Don't suppose anyone has a quick link.

I will end on a positive note, I love the damn Jeep! And I have faith that these small issues will be resolved in the near future.
