I am guessing Baa Baa is going to be a popular plate, well except for NSW where it costs almost as much for the annual plate fee as it does Rego. PM'd Baa Baa in Darwin a while ago and the most south he has been is Katherine.. I may have to organise a Baa Baa Australian flock gathering... It would be shear fun...

I will leave as is to help the misses.

I donít have a Uconnect manual yet, and have not bothered reading the US PDF one, so just going by what seems logical.
It is all pretty straight forward.

I even put a CD in for 10 seconds.
You would think that the area next to the player that is a storage section would be big enough to store a CD case, but noooo.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I haven't ever seen a Uconnect manual in real life either. You're right though, it's pretty straightforward and fairly intuitive.

VTail in the US thread posted this handy link to VR commands. Obviously the Uconnect access stuff doesn't work here (or the nav address stuff), but it's helpful in other ways as a quick guide (up to page 19 I think is relevant to us).

Although I did notice it doesn't list 'Inbox' as one of the commands and that is something I do use and it works.

http://www.driveuconnect.com/pdf/Uco...oiceCmd_V2.pdf

All my CD's are stored out of their cases next to the unit which I know is a no-no because they could get scratched but yeah, no room for an actual case.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I am not concerned about the CD thing as it will all be stored on the SD card anyway, just an observation of failed logic.

For those that have completed their 10000 km service for the CRD, what oils have been used by the dealers? After a conversation with Ameet, I'm looking for a Mobil option instead of Castrol. Mine is due soon and I'm wondering how everyone has gone from the factory fill.

CRD oil on special

The end result:
Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 is only one oil available in Aus that complies with Chrysler Material Standard MS-11106.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

So after seeing Snukes post were his firmware version is 13.39.51 I am getting the impression that my firmware was not updated at the 10000km service as it is showing 13.15.4 I am pretty sure it was this when I got it. Is this correct?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

That's correct auscop mine was 13.15.4 and has now been updated the other week to 13.39.51, makes a heap of difference to things like vr that weren't working properly are all good now

Yes, correct Auscop. Fail on the side of your dealer.

However, Chrysler consider it a customer install as well and you can go to the VIP section of JG and download and install it yourself. Here's the link:

UConnect 8.4 International / Export

We did it ourselves - it takes about 20 minutes. I purchased a new USB specifically to do the task ensuring that no other files (hidden or otherwise) were on it.

It's very straight forward.
