Unusual behavior with my Uconnect 8.4A

First if this needs to be moved to the sub forum please do.

The last 5 times I've started my Jeep up the Uconnect powers on to Sirius as that's what I mostly listen to.

The strange thing is the Radio will play and only show the station name... No station graphic, song title and the presets aren't present.

After approximate 5 mins this will all start working as normal.

I could be mistaken, but I believe it downloads some of that from the satellite. It takes time to download some of that and "sync" with the satellites.

Probably, but this is the first it's ever done this in over a year.

I see that also. It's loading stuff in the background. The amount of time you stated is significant. I'd get a sat reload from Sirius xm.. Call them and ask them to send the signal... If that doesn't clear it up perhaps a reload of the latest software. I think this thing has the capability to glitch itself with good code and require a reload. I've seen that three times. My load time is usually thirty seconds.

Also. Do you have a usb device connected? Could be indexing your music causing the unit to hang for a bit while it does so on boot up

I recently had the same symptoms as the OP described, a one time event. I guessed I was getting a refresh. My other car usually indicates what is happening when this occurs, I saw none on my 8.4AN.

This is an everytime it sits more than 4 hours event now. I haven't timed it yet, but it's 4ish mins I'd wager until I can do anything.

Going to dealer soon
