8.4AN start-up screen (2014 GC Summit)

Is anybody else having issues with the Jeep startup (Welcome) screen when starting the vehicle? I get all different responses when starting the vehicle: Sometimes the Jeep screen will stay on long enough for me to select to turn on the ventilated seat, or heated seat, then press "Accept". Other times, I don't even see the Welcome screen and it goes straight into the other menus. Other times, the Jeep Welcome screen will appear for a second, then, when I am about to turn on the seat ventilation, the menu disappears!

I would say this sounds like a programming flaw, as it changes each time I start my vehicle.

Any idea?

mine is exactly the same, I think there is no control over this and it will depend on how long the software takes to initialize which may vary I guess, depending on the last state?

but this is just a guess

Same here but I would not call them issues just yet. I agree that the timing should be a little more...uniform but it probably depends on factors like the last application running, was there active navi guidance when you turned the engine off, the settings for hardware like easy entrance/exit; HVAC on off or auto etc. This is speculation but if I were to diagnose any reasons behind the slowdowns, that is how I would begin

I have the same problem but I don't think it's an issue. I usually turn on the car, set my seat position if my wife changed it and put my seat belt on by the time the radio is ready for normal operation.
