Uconnect 8.4 verion 13.48.3 available
 
I noticed that version 13.48.3 is available for download as of today when I entered my vin. Heading out to dinner but going to install when I get home. Has anyone installed yet?

Wow two months after the last update. I wonder if there's a change log.

Just installing now.
The authentication and download from Uconnect site were pretty speedy.
Not much specific info on what is being updated.
Install is same as previous updates.

Presets were retained. Phone and nav favorites still there.
There seem to be a couple of minor graphic improvements in audio settings.
No new apps.

Touchscreen response pretty speedy.
Now to take her out for a spin. :thumbsup:

On my Win 8.1 computer I couldn't download the update with either IE11 or Chrome. I downloaded Apple Safari and all went smoothly.

I'll install in the am.


OP -Thanks for the heads up.

Same here, ran the installer but not pop up to continue the download. Probably allot of traffic. Tried IE and Firefox.

Update: Thanks for the Safari suggestion. All went smoothly. I'll update the unit tomorrow.

Just downloaded 13.48.3 from Uconnect site. Took less than 3 minutes. Looks like the Uconnect site is finally working the way it should. I won't have time to install for a day or two. Looks like this will be the official thread for this update. Hey Will, care to add anything? You're the update guru! :D

With IE, and perhaps some others, you need to at least temporarily disable the "Pop-up Blocker" so that the site can work properly. I am running Windows 8, and IE 10, and was able to download the new version after disabling pop-up blocking under the Tools menu in IE.

I had been running 13.38.52, hopefully this new version will clean up the last couple of quirks?

Now if we could just get them to update the map database...

I cannot get the download to start either. Akamai Netsession downloads and installs but the window for the uConnect download never opens. I have turned off the popup blocker in IE and that did not help. Windows 7 and IE 11. Also tried the latest Firefox with the same result. Netsession shows as a running process in my Task Manager. Damned if this ain't frustrating. Anyone got any more ideas?

Download the Apple Safari browser and run it again. It worked for me. I had the exact same issues as you did.

Even though I already downloaded the update using Safari, I figured it's always good to learn something new. With Popup blocker already off, I followed the 2 quick steps in the link. All worked as it should.

Good find Silvermax. :thumbsup:
