  1. Help! UConnect keeps deleting my phone favorites

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    And you're sure the fob you are using is the 1 fob? There's nothing on them to identify them. My wife and I have different items on the ring to delineate which is which. Of course, if I have hers, I know immediately as the steering wheel is driven into my sternum.
  2. Help! UConnect keeps deleting my phone favorites

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Just a quick couple of questions for you and the others. Do you have the system set to remember your settings with the fobs? If so, have you tried saving the settings to your fob after setting the presets? If not, you might try that to see if it helps.
  3. Uconnect - faild to update and neverending loop

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    You're quite welcome. I've noticed that a lot of people seem to be confusing the two updates. You cannot install the map update until the UConnect update has been installed and that update really needs to be installed to make the GPS work even if you don't want to buy the map update. But, it's...
  4. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    That works as long as you don't miss the cue.
  5. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    You are confusing the UConnect update with the map update. My report above is for the map update which is only available on a purchased USB, so there is no option to download it. Some owners received a UConnect update through the mail. I downloaded mine and it only took about ten minutes to install.
  6. Uconnect - faild to update and neverending loop

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    The real purpose of the update, which installed much faster than previous ones, was to resolve a GPS problem that began at the beginning of November due to the rollover of the week counter on the GPS system (the national one, not the UConnect system). The UConnect system had to be reset to match...
  7. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    I sat in the car the entire time, carefully watching the oil temperature. I didn't like doing it, but the alternative of repetitively hitting the ignition button to off and back to run in a timely manner to prevent the system from shutting down and possibly bricking the radio was less appealing...
  8. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    I installed the update today. The online information indicates that it takes an hour. The written instructions with the update say 45 minutes. It took about one hour and 45 minutes, so I guess you have to add the two together for the right time period. However, it went seamlessly despite the...
  9. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    It's a CYA thing as many of the safety features won't work while the radio is updating.
  10. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    I think people in this thread are confusing the map updates with the UConnect updates.

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    The two key things that I have been able to determine are fixing the GPS for the GPS Week Numbering rollover so that the GPS is accurate and allowing the installation of the latest update to the maps which is currently available.

    Do you have Windows set to show the suffixes on files? If not, those suffixes won't appear on your screen. Also, when you plug the stick into the vehicle, it sometimes takes a couple of minutes for the unit to react (not to mention the boot time for the radio). I expedited this. After the system...
  13. Uconnect radio update

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Sandisk is one of the manufacturers that FCA says has problems. It is also one where there is generally a hidden partition with proprietary backup software on it. As I said, I have used partition managers to delete those partitions and then reformat the stick and have had them work fine.
  14. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Just got an email from HERE saying that they shipped the map update and it should be here on Wednesday, December 4.
  15. Uconnect radio update

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    The only thing to add to Jacko's post is to use a USB that is 32 gig or less. If it doesn't work, try a different USB stick. Some have reported that some brands have difficulty. I think it's related to some manufacturers putting hidden partitions and software on the stick, but I can't say that...
  16. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Sometimes the newer software on stuff takes more memory. I'm sure the maps do. My old Garmin Nuvi had a couple of gig free when I started with it, but a couple of years ago I had to put an SD card in it as it had run out of memory with the software updates and newer maps.
  17. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Thanks, wilco. I wonder if the older radios might be short on memory as more and more stuff is programmed in.
  18. 2018 UConnect 8.4 Map Update?

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Went back and you are correct. Since I went on eye drops for intraocular pressure, I have trouble reading small print and that 8 looked an awful lot like a 9. Guess I'll drop 1-1/2 Cnotes and get it since I've got a long trip planned at Christmas time. Thanks for hitting me in the back of the...

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    I just looked closer and it has the same part number as the update I bought in 2018, so that December 2 could be December 2, 2018. I'm going to email them to verify.

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    Back in 1971, I was cruising the autobahn at @ 130 in a 1970 GTO when I was passed by a Lamborghini that made it look like I was standing still. My old 1972 Dart with the 318 would do over 100, but I only tried it once and never again.
