Uconnect 8.4 AN

I've noticed that my audio settings (specifically fade/balance controls) reset themselves... anyone else notice this?

Re: Uconnect 8.4 AN

I've never seen your audio controls, so I wouldn't notice if they reset themselves.

However, I have adjusted mine a few times and they always stay where I set them.

I wonder if they hold different settings depending what source you are listening to?


If you need a shoulder to cry on ...

... pull over to the side of the road!

Re: Uconnect 8.4 AN

wondering if anyone can verify prior to the update if your 9 speaker system shows 9 speakers on the surround sound audio button or just 5 speakers. I think mine showed 9 but after the update it changed to 5. would like someone to verify.
