Re: uConnect 15.26.1 is buggy; I want to downgrade.

I am reporting no problems with the 15.26.1 update. The previous one (year old) was buggy as the radio would occasionally have to be reset.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

That duplicate song title fault is not seen at its fullest extent. I've had songs listed as many as 4 times in some of the folders. And the radio would play them all.

Re: Solution to stiff seats?

Also for what it's worth (as if I am expected to keep abreast of all Internet acronyms), the gentleman is implying that FCA/Jeep is using 6 grades of foam. #1, #2, # 3, # 4, # 5, # 6 and even # 7. ...

I have no idea where you got that from but there is absolutely no difference between my Limited Lux 2 ventilated seats and my buddy's Overland ventilated seats, apart from the stitching.
