Uconnect is driving me crazy!

It looks like there are a lot of uconnect updates. I just want to make sure I tell the dealer the right thing to look for when the car goes in for its first appointment in two weeks.

The unit completely stops playing all audio from any source at certain points, the ability to input destinations is thwarted by freezing after inputting the city name, it is inconsistently slow.

Is there anything that can be done to fix the disappearing audio before getting it to the dealer? I have quite a few hours planned in the car and silence/ resetting the ignition every 5 minutes doesn't sound fun.

Thanks!

Also, it's a 15 with a 9/14 build date.

Re: Uconnect is driving me crazy!

You can update it yourself - go here and input your VIN and it will show you the latest update for your system: https://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/. Download the file from that site and follow the instructions to update. You don't have to apply each update that's ever been released because each one is cumulative (includes all updates from all previous versions).

Re: Uconnect is driving me crazy!

Is there anywhere a list that shows WHAT the updates are?


Scratch that - scrolling down the page will help

Re: Uconnect is driving me crazy!

The dealer just replaced my whole 8.4" unit under warranty...is there a way I can figure out if it was replaced with a MY15 or a MY13/14? When I run my VIN in the link above it gives me the update for the 13/14...but this is a whole new unit so it could be a 15...any help is greatly appreciated!

Note from site when VIN is plugged in:


Your 2014 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE SRT8 X 4X4 equipped with the Uconnect 8.4AN AM/FM/BT/Access/NAV system qualifies for the following software update:

Update 1: UCONNECT® 8.4AN_RA4_15.26.1_MY13_&_M14 (Could it be a MY15 now??) (download)


Service Bulletin ID: 08-072-15
Release Date: 2015-07-15
