Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available from 2013+

I completed the 16_16_13 update earlier today. The file was downloaded on 1 May 2016.

There is no valet mode, and there are no custom settings or metric system measurements. However, Siri Eyes Free is now accessible.

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available from 2013+

I ended up calling uconnect last night. Spent a little over an hour on the phone with them poking through various menus, soft resetting the system, etc but nothing helped. The uconnect guy said he can't help and transferred me over to the SRT folks. The process was really annoying as the uconnect/srt folks didn't seem to know much. They were polite and tried to help but still didn't know much about the system. They asked me what "valet mode" is ... um ... also the materials they use to troubleshoot seem out of date. The tech kept asking me to go to menus that I didn't have. Even he gave up and said his info must be out of date. Anyway, they couldn't do much and ended up submitting a ticket. They said that I should hear back in 3 to 5 days.

If any of you 2016 guys are reading this, do you have the option to change your SRT pages from Metric to English units? If yes, how? A picture would be great.




I spent a little more time poking around the new pages:
  • Confirmed that Valet mode does not do anything. The system "activates it" but I'm not locked out of track mode, or the paddle shifters, etc.
  • The launch control screen has the option to adjust the launch RPM. That works on the screen but it doesn't actually do anything to the jeep. Same for the shift light screen and driving modes screens.
  • Metric sucks. It really does. Doubly so for me because I'm a civil engineer and work in English units
  • The SRT pages apps has crashed a few times. Never had that happen before.
  • As of this morning my uconnect system doesn't notify me of incoming text messages. It used to do that before the update.
  • Siri works.

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available from 2013+

Oh man. What a mess. Sounds like you got a file that opened up pages in your system that it shouldnt have.

It's also baffling to me how these support folks know nothing about the products they're supporting. Just another example of areas where FCA needs to step it up - particularly with the cost and sales volume of these vehicles.

Hope they get it straightened out for you. Keep us posted.

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available from 2013+

I'll give the uconnect folks one thing. They said they would call back and they did!! Good customer service.

They walked me through a factory reset of the radio and ... no change. Well, except for all my settings were wiped. Yay.

Another ticket. Waiting on another call.

Re: Apple Siri Eyes Free now available from 2013+

Can anyone with an export MY15 (specifically Australia), confirm if the Siri update is available?

I can only see an update 8.4AN_RJ4_15.17_5_MY15, released last June?

Mine was produced in Sept '15, but the Siri feature was not implemented yet.
I'm in Europe and no update available yet. I asked yesterday to Jeep when in Europe but no answer till now.
I read anywhere that now is only available in NAFTA.

Well that did it. Hard reset, open door, close door, soft reset, open door, close door, wait 24 hours ... the old SRT pages App is back. Sort of a bummer. Was hoping I'd end up with valet mode or something. But all is good again.

Did they also ask you to stand on one foot while doing all this?!! Kinda ridiculous but glad it's fixed!! Bummer that actual SRT page enhancements aren't part of the update for us. Maybe next time!

Lol or they were high fiving each other for not buying a Jeep!! Kidding aside, I love my SRT and my wrangler! Just wish they would get better at tech and mechanical support cuz it's severely lacking.

What year is your jeep? If it's a 2015 or older and you got the new performance pages showing metric then the update glitched. The only way to fix mine was to hard reset the radio, then do a soft reset, then let the jeep sit overnight.

If it's a 2016 then, based on what the uconnect folks told me, there should be a setting under the "Gauges 1" or "Gauges 2" tab.
