If your phone is plugged in, you can activate Siri by saying "Hey Siri" once you've set it up in Settings. Then you don't even have to push a button to invoke Siri.

Newer features often depend upon new hardware, so don't expect a retrofit for all of them on previous years' hardware. The systems in MY14, MY15, MY16 and MY17 have all evolved, despite having the same "name" and order code.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I know what you say. I imagine this might be merely software related and am hoping it would be available. Maybe I am dreaming. Incidentally, I spent most of my career as a telecom field engineer for Siemens.

On the 6s and 6s+ you don't have to have power to activate Hey Siri. Only on the 6 or 6+ you do.

My iPhone is not very well connected to the jeep, but won't go back to a Samsung.

It should look good on a white HA.
These are painted with Duplicolor G2.

I like the blue but I'll go black. How did you get the white Jeep lettering on it?

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I would love to replace my oem fog lamp bulbs with brighter and whiter to more closely match the headlights. I've read other threads here where it seems that users have purchased what appears to be poorly manufactured bulbs that sometimes work and sometimes don't. Since even the crap is somewhat costly, I would rather pay a bit more for top of the line (maybe Osram, etc) that merely have to be plugged into the fog lamp connectors and be expected to work and last. They don't have to be LED, although that would be nice for low power draw and long life. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks to all of you.

Looks nice! Having trouble seeing detail in that pic, but did they have to remove the bottom trim piece to put that rail on?

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Taking mine in on Monday to have the window trim and the front and rear fascia chrome wrapped in black vinyl. Also the tail lights tinted. I'm going for the all blacked out look.

There is a thread about installing the SRT LED fog lights in under interior/Exterior/Visual section. Pretty expensive.

Yeah I might have to bite the bullet on a set also. I installed an ebay set of LED fogs about 3 months ago and one is already out. I have my auto high beam on and I don't think the cheap bulbs can take the constant on-off-on-off.
