VP4 NA in Canada trying to change country code
This is a repeat of what I had asked in the Technical Discussion DIY form about a year ago, I was told to try my luck in this forum so here's hoping.
I'm really trying to fix this issue.
Okay, so right off the bat, I'd like to just let you guys know that I don't have a Jeep - I have a 2014 Ram 1500. The reason I'm here is that in all my research about uConnect and tech things you guys seemed to have always had the most information; you've helped me a ton with little things. That's why I'm here, I'm figuring if I have any chance of anyone knowing it'd be you guys.
So, here's the situation, I have a Canadian vehicle that originally had an RA3. I then upgraded with an RA4 VP4 NA and not CA because I really wanted the XM Traffic and TravelLink.
I went to my dealer and had them change all of my country codes to US (or they've told me they have anyways, no way for me to check though) and they also said that they added the RA4 sales code to my VIN.
The issue is that if I do a factory reset through engineering for the first little while I get the "Traffic" button in the Info screen in the NAV section. The button is there but nothing shows up; also there is no Apps button, just the settings button. However, if I voice command, open Uconnect, I see the apps and can click on TravelLink and it populates with information. But if I voice command "show weather" or "open Travel Link" it tells me that Travel Link is not subscribed even though I see that it is in subscription settings and as just mentioned works if I click directly on the app.
Then when I turn off the truck and go back for my next drive Apps button is there and I have a signal (Added a Taoglas antenna) with 3G, have access to Yelp but can't connect to Registration or Store, says "Unable to connect to network..." And no TravelLink app anymore and my Traffic button in the Nav screen disappears along with the options for Traffic rerouting. Since, the Travel Link app is no longer there I can't get weather/fuel etc as the voice command doesn't work, still says I'm not subscribed.
So, I think, but I really have no idea, that it's still reading Canada somewhere so it's getting rid of that stuff, or that it perhaps still thinks it's an RA3 so it's getting rid of Traffic and TravelLink if that's even possible.
I know that the Traffic is working though, because I've been using it for a year for my daily commute and it works fantastically to take me around traffic.
Any thoughts on something I could do? Add another sales code, 6US perhaps or change something somewhere? Or are there multiple places to change the country code to US?
Thanks in advance guys.
P.S. If this isn't in the right thread I sincerely apologize.
P.P.S. If there's anyone in the Montreal/South Shore/North Shore area with wiTech or starscan (I don't know exactly which it is) that wouldn't mind looking at this with me for some beer/pizza let me know.
