That is also why the UConnect Access App is not available to Canadians via the iTunes Store.

Due to the monopolistic nature of the Canadian cellular providers I do not see them giving UConnect any access anytime soon.

Dealerships should make potential customers aware of this.
I think anything that requires that Cellular Provider will have at least a $19.99/mo fee that I suspect many folks won't want to pay so this is just a free thrill ride for a little while.

I don't care about the apps, so I may 'upgrade' back a step. I have the last update on its own USB drive and will install it if things don't straighten out soon.

I also noticed today that when I remote started my rear defroster came on. I don't have the seats or steering wheel set to come on, and they didn't.

I have noticed the exact same thing with my backup camera.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

Going to make this brief:

Had issues with system since dealer tried to update the system to 13.38.52. Since then, the nav position shows me in a different state, UConnect has no connection (no 3G symbol at all) and "Phone Requires Service" notification was intermittent. Dealer FINALLY (after 4 visits) was able to convince Chrysler to send new head unit. Dealer has been AWESOME to work with by the way! New radio was installed last week, and I now have proper working navigation. BUT, still no UConnect and now there is no satellite radio signal available. I just get a message that says "acquiring signal". None of the UConnect Apps work. Dealer was told to install new antenna, they did that yesterday. Still, no satellite radio and no UConnect signal. Chrysler has now told them to inspect the wiring harness from front to back from antenna to radio. If that does not solve, Chrysler wants to send another new head unit. This started about 2 months ago. They did update to 13.48.3 yesterday. Noticed the new apps are there, but of course, I cannot connect to UConnect store so nothing works for me right now. Anyone have ideas on what could be causing such an issue with connectivity? New head unit, new antenna, what else could they possibly replace? By the way, once they put the new head unit in, I get the 1X and 3G symbol once in a while in a very good coverage area. But it does not last very long, and it is not enough signal to even open the app store. New antenna made NO DIFFERENCE at all! Just wanted to get some ideas here...

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

my update worked smoothly. no issues at all. however, the "auto" switch function between my ipod and FM Radio still happens. So that is not fixed in this release of the software. One more thing, is the update tied to the VIN, or can I use it on my second car with the same head unit?

Dealers use the same file on all identical head units. It will work, but check the stick for other files and remove them. When you run the update a log file is written to the stick. It's actually kinda interesting to read, if you're a geeky type like me.

UGH...did update yesterday and now my backup camera flickers. Having said that, the outside temperature gauge is now an active reading...

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

No problem with camera after update, even in 20 degree weather. Equalizer graphic keeps moving to left rear with start-ups, but actual sound from speakers seems to be where I previously set it. Weather map radar is slow to render again. It seemed to speed up considerably after the last update. Seat, steering wheel, and rear defrost all come on with remote start. Once I get the hvac update done to keep climate control on when opening the driver's door after remote start I'll be a happy camper.

All the apps are there now, but I never use them anyway, so this update really didn't give me anything I didn't already have.

After the update my radio won't stay on the XM channel after car is shut off. If my radio is on XM and I turn the car off, when I restart the car and put the radio back on it defaults to FM.

Yesterday, post update, XM was ok but FM and AM had all static and speaker balance was set to LR. Today, everything works fine. Go figure.

The backup camera quality is messed up bad. Hopefully they will have a fix for this soon. I am sure when they do it will break something else...

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

Does anyone know if it is possible to downgrade to the previous version? I don't really use any of the apps, so I wouldn't really miss them.

Yes, I did it this morning and posted in another thread.

Doing so did not bring about world peace. But, it solved all the problems brought on by the latest update.
