Notice to Canadians with UConnect 8.4
 
We will not have access to Apps, UConnect Access, or any other feature that relies on a cellular network anytime soon.

I have applies the two most recent software updates and nothing has changed except for the version number. No additional settings and especially no additional audio features or apps.

This is likely due to our monopolistic cellular carries refusing to give UConnect access. That's if UConnect even tried as there is no evidence of that.

Dealerships in Canada should stop promoting Apps or UConnect Access as they are not available.

I was really disappointed to hear we don't have the apps nor uconnect access, but we might be getting it soon...check out the link.

I'll be picking up my new GC at the end of the week, so I haven't had the joy of dealing with the many issues described.

That being said, can we not tether to our cell phone? Or, is it that the apps themselves are removed from the system in Canada?

I wish we could tether. The apps are all disabled, and uconnect isnt available for download in Canada in the apps stores.
