Are you using an iPhone 5 running the latest IOS. I have seen this before but we don't know if it is a corrupt address entry or an iPhone issue (some iphones appear to have this issue). I have not seen this problem on an Android device yet.

Please report back if this comes back. This is the first posted report on this problem.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

If I could ever get the damn Chrysler site to come up, I could check to see if I need the update.....or I could get off my ass and just walk out to the Jeep and check.

If so, I'll use Willx's RA3 file and go from there. I don't really notice anything being off, but I like to tinker so might as well update if it needs it. Don't have a flash drive with me at the moment, though, so it'll have to wait until this evening.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Ran the update on my test vehicle. Very easy, there is a small delay as to when you put the USB key in to when the update verification happens.

The entire update process on an RA4 took 9 Minutes. I used the RA4 file I posted in the 1st post.

-Fixed the clock time (noticed this afterwards)
-definitely more responsive moving between screens
-Bluetooth audio is more responsive (song changes using steering wheel controls quicker)
-I did not see cover art working BUT I think my last Google Play Music update killed my cover art on my RAZR HD so I will try some other phones and post back on that.

Photos of the 3 major stages you see are below. ** Make sure you leave the stick in until the verification screen comes up again.

As a side note, I have done a very similar update on a 2013 Cadillac SRX via an SD Card.... It took nearly an hour and did not have the good feedback of the process such as the upgrade screens you see below.

I am REALLY impressed with how easy this was and how little time it took. The update Process for this UConnect is more user friendly than most of the devices I have worked with. Considering the total size of the update is about 1/2 gig once uncompressed, this works AMAZING.

Now if they can only fix the UConnect Website.... wishful thinking!

Not an SD Card update... files must be extracted to a USB drive. Please also verify you are using the correct radio. complete instructions below.

Yeah, my plan is to hold off taking it in unless it comes back.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I seen that message come up once on an older firmware version so it MAY be a radio problem. I can't see it being with the update IF the update complete successfully. It did say in the instructions to bring it in if that came up but who knows might have been a temporary glitch, especially since it didn't come back

It seems fine now. I'm not sure what was happening. It may have been my usb drive introducing some noise in the display. Overall I can't say I notice much difference in lag between screens, but hopefully it solves the issue with the uconnect freezing up. The volume difference between iPod and sat radio is still there and pretty annoying.


I noticed one of the installation modules said SKINS. Is there a way to change the background color scheme? I didn't see anything in the settings.

So you have a non-NAV unit, correct? I'm getting confused about which radio I actually have. RA3 or RA4? I don't have NAV in mine and it looks to be exactly like the pics you posted.

edit: Okay, I'm blind....I do see your NAV icon down there now. So the difference between the 2 is NAV, then?

If you're talking about music playback you're on the wrong thread. You might start here: SD card Vs USB
If you can't find anything in that thread, try a forum search.

RA3 is the system WITHOUT NAV originally yes. RA4 is with NAV originally.
