Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

Thanks for the info. While upset that it did not bring about world peace, I will downgrade, and hope for the best.

I agree. If i knew i would stay away from this update. Backip camera is almost unusable at some times especially when I'm backing out from my garage. It is almost like temperature sensor - shows previous day's picture ;-). Hope they fix this soon!!!

Is everybody having issue with choppy backup camera after this upgrade. Wonder if this is software or hardware related.

It seems like there has been some changes to the camera hardware and radio hardware itself in later models.

The more I think about it, the more I think I should have waited to buy this truck. New radio, new camera, new advanced cruise sensor with Stop.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

Put Ios7 on on iphibne 3gs and watch the results. My backup camera sucks now but I am diggin the live tempature updates and new apps. My only guess is the upon startup and backing out of driveway, the software is still loading into ram while the cpu is trying to process live footage... perhaps a multitask issue now with this update. Any specs on this hardware?

Went out to re-flash the update, and noticed the balance/fade now stays centered. Who would have figured waiting a few days would solve the problem. No problems with the backup camera. I recommend that everyone with problems call UConnect and let them know. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Per Willx, the temp display problem cannot be fixed via a Uconnect radio software update as the temp readout is controlled via a separate module that will require connection to a dealer's diagnosic equipnment (Witech) to update (if and when such an update becomes available - it's not as of today AFAIK).

Well, I was going to do this update, but it appears to bring a whole bunch of issues, so I guess I will just hold off for now.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

I did this update 5 days ago on my 8.4AN in an April build and have not had any problems so far. Backup cam is still good and NAV is good. Of course, I really have not had any radio/NAV/uConnect problems since it was delivered except the problem with the check marks changing themselves back after 2 seconds, but that cleared up a couple of updates ago. I don't do any music streaming or anything so I don't know about that. So right now, I'm happy with it.

After the update my backup camera stuttered after a few starts or so but is working fine now again (it was always fine before). Go figure...

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

I applied the upgrade yesterday evening. The back-up camera works the same as before. I'll have to see if it makes the navigation better. Thus far, the ability to touch the navigation screen and move to recent the view does not work any better than before, which is close to not at all. My seven year-old Pioneer unit did it so nicely... Zooming out is not the answer, and you loose detail which is often needed.

They just needed to spend a few dollars more to have a much faster processor and much more memory. I would have still bought the thing if it was $100 or $500 more expensive. The guys running the company just do not seems to comprehend that supply and demand does not change over small ranges of price variations, rather than the smooth curve as shown in Economics 101.

Re: Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available

So how large is the swdl.iso file? Mine is 592.1 MB when I decompressed from the zip file I got from the official uconnect site. I saw somebody said it is 564MB, don't know if they put a new file on the sever.
