Sirius XM reception after software update


This is probably not a diesel-specific issue, but since that is what I have (2014 GC) and this is the forum where I get my useful information, I thought that I'd start here.

I installed the new software from the flash drive sent by Chrysler without any problems. However, since then I have noticed that the Sirius XM reception has gotten worse. There are no problems in open areas, but in areas with trees or in garages that previously had good reception the signal drops out.

It may just be a coincidence that this started right after the software update, but has anyone else noticed a drop in sensitivity/reception since this?

I had problems before and after the software update. I live in the valley and summer trees block my signal everyday. Didn't get worse for me or better.

My reception has sucked since day 1 but since I have not had ANY problems with my Jeep, I have not had a chance to bring it up at the dealer. I just drive with a pole saw hanging out the sunroof and all is good!
