AM Radio Noise

Hi,

Just wondering if its just my jeep or others have quite noisy AM radio reception ? It has a scratchy background noise when announcers speak quite often. Maybe due to weak signal reception but its in the middle of the city where the signal is pretty good and our other car has no issue in that area ?

Grand Cherokee CRD Laredo 2014. Current uconnect firmware - is the radio firmware part of that or is that separately upgradeable ?

thanks !
Seedar.

Re: AM Radio Noise

AM, what is that?
Jokes aside, the radio reception in the GC is crap.

Re: AM Radio Noise

I listen to ABC on AM a lot when driving. The AM is average and is affected by high voltage lines. Overall it is ok, but this is also from driving around Metro Sydney.

Re: AM Radio Noise

You need a decent antenna Seedar. The radio might not have a great front end... I dunno... but you can't polish a turd. AM loves a big stick at right angles to the bodywork, and without it even a good tuner will do it hard.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: AM Radio Noise

I recently updated the UConnect firmware and that seems to have improved things somewhat - not perfect but improved.
