Where do we submit change requests to the Uconnect gods to make this a useful feature for us oilers?
Isn't there an app for GasBuddy.com?

yes for smartphones, and there is a place on Uconnect where you can select the type of fuel. I just didn't see it earlier.

Was driving home tonight and a big warning popped up on the Unconnect screen: Vehicle Phone Requires Service, Contact Dealer. Then after a few seconds it disappeared. Anybody know what that might be all about? I registered the Uconnect system a day or two ago and that seems to be working.

Vtail,
My Limited (9/28 build) has the same affliction. I call it the VPRS message. It occurred with both software versions: 13.33.7 and 13.38.52. I get the message upon startup and typically several times a day. The message is more a nuisance as most radio functions seem to work. However, there are a few minor quirks that I have noticed:

1. The media selection defaults to USB after a restart even though there is nothing in the USB port. It should default to last media used, which is SD card in my case.
2. The radio phone screen does not clear to previous screen after outgoing calls. It does however clear to previous screen after incoming calls.
3. If I set NAV to alert for speed 14 miles over limit, within a day, it drops to 13 mph. I have reset to 15 to see if it will reset itself to 14.

The quirks may not be related to the card issue, but I bring them up as matter of comparison to what other users may be experiencing. I know that there are at least a couple more postings where the same quirks are reported

According to Willx, the VPRS problem is the 3G phone card located in the head unit. If the problem persists, the radio will likely require replacement. I had mine looked at by the dealer this week to get on record of the issue. The dealer must go through the BS routine of hearing complaints first and try software fixes before a replacement can be considered. Whether they replace it is entirely up to Chrysler and dealers do not (or cannot) keep new radios on hand. Apparently, there is still a shortage of radios, which are being somewhat allocated to dealers. I was told that early Cherokees have issues too, so that doesn't help the supply.

Check your software version, try a couple more upgrade reloads, if VPRS persist after a couple of weeks, get it by the dealer as the wait for parts could be lengthy. I posted earlier notes in the Uconnect 8.4 North America thread (WK2-Audio/visual/Navigation), so I will post future comments and updates there.

Welcome to the VPRS club.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Sorry to hear you are both getting the same message. So far (knock on wood) I have not gotten the message. Keep us posted on what they wind up doing for the fix.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

You know this is an extremely complicated system. I don't know of many like it and I can certainly understand teething problems which will happen since every possible configuration and interface device can't be tested. Standard protocols for interface along with various configurations of phones-SD cards-USB keep their systems integration lab hopping.
I am very excited to have all this capability and hope that with some software/firmware ups it will be all sorted out.
Hearing these issues helps me to prepare for my JGC which I am ordering tomorrow...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Just got the paper copies of the owners manuals delivered. 4 Total. One owners manual, one warranty book, one U connect book, and one diesel supplement. Huge stack of books. Just for fun, I measured them. Combined, they are 2⅜" thick. I don't even think war and peace was that thick. Looks like another long read (not really, as I already read them online, I just want them in the Jeep for reverence, if the Jeep has issues)

You are lucky. I call the number I was given to order the manuals and told them there were five, the four you listed above, plus the Users Guide. I also asked for the "Owner's Kit with DVD" which is described in the 5th edition of the on-line manuals. The response from the CSR was less underwhelming when I said I need the full set with a "what's that?" response for the Owner's Kit.

Today, I got the 5th edition of the Owner's manual but nothing else. I've kicked it back to my dealer to handle.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Oil life
My oil life shows 68% remaining but I've only put 1,600 km on my SFU. Oil level is good - anybody else have the same reading? What was the original maintenance interval set at? Anybody know?
Thanks

On the jeep.com website near the bottom of the homepage, click on "contact us".

On the left side of the new window under "your vehicle" click on "owner's manual and glove box material".

Under the "Owner Manuals & Service Manuals - How to Order" click on the "click here" link under the "Online Ordering of Materials (at no charge)" window.

Fill out the online form with your contact info and VIN and click on the "get manuals" button. The manuals available for your vehicle will appear for you to select the ones you'd like in hard copy.

Mine took less than a week to arrive.

Awesome! Thanks so much. I was on that page and didn't scroll down far enough to see the at no cost option. Thanks again.
