UConnect 2014 memory issues
 
Just picked up brand new Overland (build 4/6 and software version 13.10). Everything is fine except the fact that UConnect has some memory problems.

I go into settings and set everything up. Come back next time and it resets it to whatever. Some settings stick some don't. It is driving me bananas. Initially was thinking that some settings got assigned to particular keyfob and they get switch around once I pick another fob but I unchecked option to ties settings to keyfob.

Especially FCW gets reset from FAR to NEAR. Sometimes I click and it resets immediately.

Am I missing something here??? Anybody else is having similar issues?

If you read through the UConnect threads you will find LOTS of people are having the same issues. No resolution that I have heard yet.

There are a couple of threads out there on this problem. I don't recall seeing a solution.


How is it that (not the first time) Titans response was not visible to me, until after I posted mine?

Weird ... I just noticed this one mine today.

The check marks for ParkSense and Forward Collision Warning settings were unchecked, and when I rechecked the box, they unchecked like 3 seconds later automatically. I can't get the check mark to stick? :confused:

I am having the exact same issues on my Overland.

Don't you also have "real" buttons for them?

In my 2014 Overland, after placing some check marks with ignition in OFF mode they go away after the 3 seconds but are checked when ignition is in RUN mode. I believe that the settings update after 3 seconds to show only the status of options that are active when engine is not running for some of the settings and are actually saved for the last memory profile selected by door button memory 1 or 2 or key fob 1 or 2.
If settings are changed after selecting memory profile 1 (button on driver door), the changes are changed only for memory profile 1 (door button or key-fob). Settings need to be made independently for memory profile 1 and or 2.
I made the programming choices with IGN in OFF, for both memory profile 1 and 2, some check boxes went away but when looked at with engine running the changes were saved and showed the checked boxes. All appears 100% even with check marks going away for items not operational with engine not running.
Also, to link key fob to memory profile buttons on drivers door - - - with IGN in OFF, press "S" on door followed by 1 or 2, after a couple of seconds the speedometer display and UConnect display will have a message confirming settings are being saved for memory 1 or 2, while this message is displayed (it goes away after a few seconds), depress "LOCK" button on key fob that is to be linked to the vehicle memory 1 or 2.

I have noticed similar things with other settings. Some settings that didn't seem to be taking were behaving that way because of how I was making selections. One case was the night/day center stack display brightness settings. With more complicated technology comes a steeper learning curve. The first few days of ownership had some confusing moments, but patience has been paying off.

Was the ignition in the run position when you checked the boxes?

For me the settings are different in ACC and RUN positions (should there be a difference?). I'm also seeing something like this happening:

Uconnect memory issue. - YouTube

Software is buggy as hell. How this passed QC I don't know. NAV settings will not stick as well. Well after n-th try some of them finally stick, some of them are not.

My software version is 13.10.0 and fairly recent build. Hopefully they will have fix for this soon. At least as far as other things they seem to be working OK.

Precisely why I wait some time before buying a model with new electronics. I'd be damned pissed if I had to make endless trips to the dealer for software updates. Where the hell is the quality control?

But its not new electronics, its been in the 300's and others for a model year or so. They have all the same tech and options and then some that our jeeps have. Not sure what the issue is, but I betcha it will get ironed out soon. Mine was built in early feb 13 and its fine.
