Good morning, do anyone know if one can add a display theme to the Uconnect 8.4AN?

Doubt it. I'm sure someone can elaborate more.

Re: Uconnect 8.4an display theme

I've only had my KL for 2-3 days, but I've been reading the manual for a while. I don't think there is a way to change it's theme. If you find one, however, please let us know.

Yes if 2015. From the manual pg 403:

Set Theme
This feature will allow you to choose a background
theme for the display screen. The theme will change the
background color, highlight color, and button color of the
display screen.


Controls/Settings/Display/Theme

The theme also shows different faint backgrounds such as sand, cracked desert earth, dash material

Re: Uconnect 8.4an display theme

@Trekie51 - Never heard of a way. There is at least one thread on Jeep Cherokee Club forum that discusses themes ==> Are there supposed to be different Themes for the radio? - 2014 - 2015 Jeep Cherokee Forums

I believe the conclusion is there are theme files in the ISO install file but the ISO file is locked with a hash algorithm so changing anything in the file causes the install to throw an error.

Download 14.35 from the UConnect site. The software is for the 2015 200 but also works on the US 2014 KL and 2014 WK with 8.4AN. Can set themes on both our Jeeps.

I think I would be very careful about doing that and would want to know what is different in that firmware before I did that. There is a lot of difference in a Chrysler 200 and a Jeep even IF the head units are the same. If it was as simple as that why wouldn't Chrysler have issued that particular firmware for the Jeep already? Remember Chrysler is already saying the head unit in the 2015 Jeeps has the same identification numbers but is somehow different internally and requires a different firmware.

Didn't you omit the part about the backup camera image being washed out during daytime as a result? Further, Trekie51 clarified he/she was looking for a way to use one of his/her own images, not the canned themes from Jeep.

I haven't experienced that bug - yet. Not saying it doesn't exist. If I have problems, I'll reinstall the most recent sanctioned version. And I missed that about using his/her own images...
