Re: Uconnect wish list

Once a call is completed, have the screen revert back to the Radio Screen or Media Screen, whatever was in use before the call instead of staying on the phone screen.

Re: Uconnect wish list

i do have some wishes which i believe they should there from the beginning!

1- Control the uconnect ringtone ( change - mute - volume control ). it scared me alot while driving so i stopped using Bluetooth because of this

2- Stop automatically turn on radio with vehicle start or when my mobile lose connection via usb

3- provide more choices for GPS guidance ( shortest - faster road etc) [export module]

They need to remove the heated seat and steering wheel from the uconnect and make them buttons again. It's a pain in the ass to have to go into the screen to do this. I get the fascination with touchscreen, but some things need to be left as a button way too much distraction for the driver. The new MDX got killed in reviews for their new touch screen only system. I feel some of the functions in the jeep should be called out as well.

Agree, my 2011 had hard buttons and was much quicker to turn off/on the seats. Now it's a pain, have to go through several screens to get to those settings.

Re: Uconnect wish list

I wish there was some consistency between the software versions. Each seems to behave differently. Options come and go. For me the latest version is one of the worst behavior wise.

I agree as well. I had a 2011 and I liked the control for this better. It looks nice on the screen though, but functional not that great. Kind of reminds of my 20" rims.

Re: Uconnect wish list

When playing SD card and you turn off the vehicle, have it simply come on EXACTLY as you had it set. I almost always have SHUFFLE on and when you restart everything is the same (song, location in song, volume) EXCEPT SHUFFLE is off, arghh!

Hmmm. Is that true of other sources as well, like USB and Bluetooth (iPhone) or just the SD card? I'm curious because not only does my current (Subaru) head unit turn off shuffle every time, it always starts with the first song on the iPod too. VERY annoying. Was hoping buying a Jeep (currently on order) would solve that problem! :-)

Re: Uconnect wish list

Right now I'd be happy if my 8.4AN would just stay connected to my Android phone. I didn't have this issue with my Limited with a 8.4A radio running the same v13.48.



It's off & on...not a constant issue...irritating nevertheless.

I am not an iTunes guy but I will investigate and report back for you. One more related gripe is that when you are playing radio and select Media it auto selects USB even though I have nothing plugged into USB but DO have my SD card in AND last time I was in Media mode I was listening to my SD card. Annnoyyying! I know it's just a software thing and they may eventually get to it. Again, these are small nits on a uConnect system and HK Stereo that is 99% awesome.

UPDATE, it matters which radio you have. My 8.4AN results won't matter for a different radio. For example, A TSB was just put out today for the 5.0/RA2 (but not my 8.4AN) that fixes the iPod shuffle not surviving an on/off cycle.

Re: Uconnect wish list

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but when you use voice command to locate the nearest for example "Dunkin Donuts" it says multiple choices and list them by number and how far away they are, but doesn't show direction so if you put in the closest one it might be on the other side of the highway.

Maybe it felt you should expend more effort to get to a DD. Try it with Vitamin Shoppe and see if it gives you the easiest one first.
