Maybe this was done because a lot of phones now have 4g connections but I don't see why I would pay for uconnect services when so far all the recently released apps use my phones data plan.
It isn't required. We just now got 4G in my area but I'd been listening to Pandora just fine for years on 3G. I'm not sure how they hope to sell many subscriptions at the price they are asking versus what is on offer. I can simply stream any of the available apps from my phone via bluetooth if I want like I still do in the other cars and it costs me nothing I'm not already paying. The rest of it isn't going to carry the package for me and Frankly I'm getting tired of every Tom Dick and Harry trying to rope me into a continuous revenue stream so they can win the Boy Wonder award and cop a ride on the corporate jet.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

Hello all
I took delivery of JGC Limited in granite crystal Monday. I haven't broke it in yet.
I tried loading Akamai on my Mac but it won't install properly. There is an upgrade to connect but i can't download it, any fixes?
Thank you
Ernest

Is anyone else having problems with the apps actually working? I can see the icons but I get a connection error when I try and use any of the apps.

The only two I've tried are Pandora and Slacker. Both work great once loaded (which can take a minute or two).
Make sure your phone is paired via Bluetooth. And the Uconnect app must be running on your phone.

Make sure you:

1. Have logged in to Owner Connect Via Mobile Profile and setup all the apps.
2. Have your phone connected to a data network.
3. Have the phone properly paired to the Jeep.
4. Have the Uconnect app installed and the "Via Mobile" feature is ticked (you should see a "Via Mobile" button on the app and a blue light on the button when paired).

I am wondering if anybody knows if this is a u connect issue or something else. Whenever I have my manual climate control temp left on HI and turn the jeep off, the next time I start the jeep the temp reduces from HI to 26. FYI i am not using remote start.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

You're so lucky guys.

Here in Germany we don't have an access to software updates...
For every update we have to go to our dealer. And he is not happy without paying for the update.

Nope. There are threads for both the US version and the International one which includes both Australia/Middle-East and Western Europe (Germany, France, Italy etc...).
