I can say that the lag is gone! The Nav is MUCH quicker now and best of all you don't have to be stopped to enter a destination etc. I did NOT lose any of my settings. Even my SXM favorites were still there. Also, for the first few minutes i even saw the iheartradio.com, pandora and another one but disappeared, i got excited for that but maybe in the next update.

I was not having issues with my Uconnect except for the lag which wasn't really a big deal but working in the IT field I'm always applying updates to systems so i was eager to update my Uconnect, lol. Again, update your system at your own risk and follow the instructions! Big thanks to Willx
Sweet, thanks for following up

If you are performing the update as per the PDF instructions in my original post and something goes wrong, go to your dealer, as you have only followed Chrysler's instructions. This apply's even if you downloaded it directly from Chrysler and I certainly would tell them any different.
Sorry I ever doubted... funny thing is i'll DL a bittorrent occasionally and not think twice - - I guess when the computer is 40k+ you think twice!
Thanks

Let me know if you are still having issues today. Also let me know which radio you have and I will post to another Server.

Phew. Just got it to finish downloading. Install is under way. The install completed. Now it seems like the screen is flickering, like it is refreshing at a slower frequency. Hmmm...Maybe it will go away after it sits for a bit.

OK, first we have heard that now. I am going to go update one shortly here but please let us know if that improves. It would be the first negative experience with the update.

I take it you downloaded the update from the Uconnect support site. How long did that take? Also, hope the flickering clears up and the update is successful for you.

I was finally able to get the update to show up for my jeep about a half an hour ago. I tried downloading the file for a few minutes as a test and it was sloooow. Maybe around 20kbps.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I am hoping this incident is isolated to me. I downloaded and installed RA4 update last night and everything went smoothly. I was driving to work this morning and I got the Vehicle Phone Requires Service screen. As far as I could tell, everything was functioning normally before and after the message.

I installed the file Willx uploaded for the RA4 and it worked just fine. Response of the screen is much better, it feels like there is less "lag" after pushing an icon. Haven't got to navigate anywhere yet.

However this update did NOT fix my problem with my phone book not fully downloading. Still only get A-R in my contacts. I deleted/reconnected the phone and still no go.
