Updated: May 24 2013 @ 12:25pm EST

There were updates posted May 22nd 2013 for the 2014 Grand Cherokee containing both the 8.4A or 8.4AN UConnect systems (RA3 and RA4 model option codes). The notes below are updated as I get more information on these updates. People have used both the files I have posted, and are confirmed GOOD as well as worked with the Chrysler UConnect website, which at time of this update is running EXTREMELY poorly.

FYI the site is awfully slow, probably due to increased volume. If you get the white Bar across the screen WAIT, if you enter your VIN and click the button and nothing happens WAIT.... or do the items below as per the instructions.

Link to check: Uconnect | Support | Jeep

Here are the links for the speedy download (these are downloaded by members and re-uploaded for your ease of use) but if unsure not a bad idea to be patient and check your VIN above.

Here is the RA3
RA3_13_15_4-T3-8.exe (369.8 MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!oNZCmLbJ!AiKWDH8mMR6kmoUkL7HftmrsPAZKZexh0ew2PQbd4l8

Here is the RA4:
RA4_13_15_4-T3-8.exe (370.3 MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!A5UUHCBC!IJMrFgM4SsRmwLhGWLqtA2YdS5sjSf56JdIQt1n4f28

Instructions are Attached

** Confirmed update times for both versions are 9-10 min once USB is in (instructions state up to 45 must include the wait time for the UConnect site :lol:)
** It has also been noted that the Mega file downloads work much better with Google Chrome

Edit: So far the only reported issues are as follows

- If you had an "apps" button it will turn into "settings" but will turn back to "apps".
- You will MAY loose your XM Presets, some people seem to, probably relates to how old your original version is. The RA4 I did, DID NOT loose them
-This update does not include a Quadra-Lift setting for drop in park, I am not sure if this is possible but submit to Customer Service if this is something people want.

These items are confirmed good.

-NAV Presets saved are ok through upgrade.
-Phonebook is unaffected.
-Recent NAV Points are also not affected.
-Users haved noted a marked increase in Navigation speed.
-Users who were running the RAM Pickup update have had thier issues corrected.
-Bluetooth audio playback and track changes improved.
-General improvements in moving between applications

I will update this Post as Bugs and Fixes are reported.

** Please post back things you notice about these updates good and bad.

Would love some feedback from anyone installing the update. Like, do you lose your nav favorites or phonebook? How about other settings, of which there are a slew? Plus improvements in operation. My Uconnect isn't having any really annoying problems with the original software, so I'm wondering if the update is worth any trouble that might come with it.

Good Point... in my world DON'T update unless you have a problem you think might be fixed. If everything is working OK, allow others with problems to update first and provide feedback.

So Please everyone let us know what this fixes. I was told there are many "fixes" but I don't know what they are, I can likely get my hands on a dealer stock unit and try it out.... will let you know later but please post successes and failures.

NOTE:

This is Version # RA4_13_15_4-T3-8 (from the VIN I ran equiped with 8.4AN)

*** When you get to check for updates and the middle of the screen is white and you can't do anything BE PATIENT it does come up after a very long time.

*** After you put in your VIN and NOTHING Happens when you click the button, be patient again.... wow this is like waiting for the Service Department but here it is.

I have a 200+ Meg Internet connection and the download is very slow and stops and starts a lot. I will post the full file size shortly.

I will try to post this to an FTP later this evening but I would suggest checking your VIN as there may be different step ups based on your shipped version but I don't know.

Well, I got a message saying I exceeded the download attempt limit. Every time I tried to download it, it would time out somewhere between 20MB and 150MB. I couldn't get the instructions on how to install it either. Here's to hoping someone gets a complete version of the instructions and the RA4 uploaded to share.

Thanks all.

I have the file and am transfering it to a Server right now. Instructions are posted by Ride earlier.
