U-Connect

My voice activated navigation feature just does not pick up what I say. I utilize the exact sequence of commands that U-Connect ask for and it it sends me to Montana or god knows where and not New Hampshire! Typing address in and all works great! Thanks

You're not, by any chance, Scottish?

Please post a recording of the commands you are issuing.
If you have a moderately strong accent, add a text translation.
Please speak in a normal and calm tone.

Seriously, can you make phone calls or anything using Uconnect?
If you do happen to have an accent, can anyone else around you use that feature?
It could be you have a problem with your mike pickup, or a problem with the voice response in UConnect.

Since it is presumably under warranty, see if the service manager can get it to work.

Re: U-Connect

I do have a strong New England accen tbut that accent does not seem to bother in by wife's 2014 GC. I do not use any other voice activated features in the Cherokee. I state... navigate to, the state, town, street name and number (or what ever the correct que is on the screen). She gets totally screwed up and either terminates, says she does not understand, or sends me where I do not want to go.

Re: U-Connect

There is new u connect software that was released yesterday, version 14.25.5 for the KL.

I downloaded on Google chrome ( tried on IE 11.0 and it did not work). It took a few tries to extract and un zip the file but finally got it OK.

Re: U-Connect

Had the same issue of it not understanding what I was saying. Went into the setup and found the voice recognition setting and went throught the program. Haven't had a problem since.

Just my $.02 worth.

Re: U-Connect

Does the program "learn" your accent/speech ?

Re: U-Connect

Right side of display, press "menu". Next screen, press "System Setup". At the next screen you should see "Voice Recognition". Press it and follow the directions. At least that is where mine was located.
