Do you think this is caused by Satellite signal or software related? Anyway, I will stop the dealership today to check what the deal is and I have the latest update.

So this is a problem across all the UConnect 8.4 system.

My U-Connect Navigation was rebooting today, just like yesterday. It runs fine, just keeps rebooting every 5 minutes or so.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I hope it works out for you Johnny. Keep me posted. I just drove mine again this afternoon. It rebooted only once this time. I don't know if I should be happy, or only slightly less pi$$ed? I wonder if you buy that Viper on the floor, if it comes with the same crappy U-Connect as we got?

Where they refreshed the last update for me and it didn't work. I wonder if they didn't fix everything on the last update. Right now, it restart itself every 5 minutes..... Fun..... I am almost in the point to trade-in my Jeep with something else......
