Bighorn453 will become famous soon enough
Exclamation NEW uConnect Update Available! (v13.38.52)

THE FOLLOWING IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO UPDATE:

- The extracted update file (swdl.iso).
- A BLANK USB thumb drive (at least 1GB).
(Make sure there are no other files on it.)



DOWNLOAD UCONNECT UPDATE 13.38.52

- Official uConnect Update Site:

https://rsur.extra.chrysler.com/rsur/Uconnect.do
(If the above site is used, you must make sure to run the self-extracting .exe which you've downloaded, and put the extracted .iso file onto the USB drive!)

OR

- RA3 8.4A (Without Navigation):
https://mega.co.nz/#!HpJmFYyL!aCqb6VkVpFUS3sppfkpzHi_oDbl6kveOHurzODP Bbko

- RA4 8.4AN (WITH Navigation):
https://mega.co.nz/#!H1xQzZ4T!fNv7QnRW-bz3c1f3qBF9R3LDQrE-PLZF9x0aXpMBfiA

(Please DO NOT share these links outside of this forum!)

Once you transfer the software update file (swdl.iso) to the USB drive, follow the instructions (attached below) to begin installation process.

The update should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.



SOME ANSWERS TO THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


- Make sure if you download the file from a link other than the official uConnect site that you download the proper file for your radio (RA3 or RA4).
- If the update seems to stop around 40% on the Air Card Update (Unit 10), this is normal. It is a big part of the update. BE PATIENT!
- If your radio reboots at all during installation, this is fine. It should reboot and continue the installation process.
- You may notice some settings missing at first, but they will come back shortly (usually within a few minutes).
- Give the radio up to 24 hours to allow it to communicate with other modules and restore everything to how it was.
- Should anything go wrong, you can restart from the beginning.



Most Noticeable Changes/Fixes (Full Changelog Below)

- Outbound texting from many phones.
- Addition of mirror dim on/off control.
- Pop up menu enabled for Voice Recognition.
- Simplified layouts for apps.
- General Nav improvements.
- Song shuffle recalls properly on restart.
- Screen is much more responsive.
- 3G icon has blue halo around it.

Made an appointment with the dealer for this Friday to let them do this.
No way I'm messing with the heart of this beast.

Downloaded and installed. In order to get this download you have to be on the site in internet explorer, chrome or firefox will not work. The site does a great job of giving you detailed instructions of how to get this onto a memory stick and will give you very nicely detailed instructions of how to perform the upgrade on the stereo.

Install was smooth as silk, zero issues coming from 13.19.0.
Changes I've noticed from 13.19.0
-the redial and end call buttons are now full green and red.
-larger font for time and details on the status bar.
-larger font and layout for the ipod and sdcard section of the radio.
-quicker response for ipod and sdcard when searching or forwarding and backing up songs.
-Volume seems equalized now for radio and SDcard/ ipod. for the better I will add.

I haven't had the chance to play with much else but this is what I messed around with.

I had the same when I tried it in Firefox. Switched to Internet Explorer and it at least took me to the next screen. It requires you install a downloader (Akamai), which I know I can't do on this machine - so I will have to wait until I get home.
