Default 8.4 AN Canada

So after months of the radio screen blacking out, and fighting with Chrysler "customer care", and 5 days in a caravan rental, my head unit was replaced.

now instead of the "settings" icon on the bottom right of the radio screen, i have an "apps" icon. the settings feature is in the "apps" icon.

anyhow, not sure whther the apps are available in Canada, so im not sure why it on the new radio.

ill post back after some experimentation today.

does anyone else (in Canada) with the 8.4an have the apps icon?

Primo,
Thtat's interesting. I recall when I looked into this topic previously, no Canadian member indicated that they had the apps icon. Is there any apps in the apps folder other then the settings icon?

It will be interesting to see if you can get apps (SiriusXM Traffic, SiriusXM Travel Link, and Bing for example), and if they work in Canada.

I'd think that even if the icons appear, you won't be able to register for Uconnect Access as a Canadian resident.

Missing Quote: Uconnect® Access provides:

I do not have an APPS icon and in talking with Uconnect they could not grant me any access, even though I travel in the U.S.A. I cannot even make use of it for times when I am there. Hence even their quote is incorrect.

yeah i found it strange to have the icon to say the least. i tried to register for snits and giggles, but no dice. it just kept waiting for info...

anyhow, so far so good. the screen hasn't blacked out, but id sure like to know why the icon is there...

plus i noticed a couple of options are now missing. for example i used to be able to set teh seat heaters on with the remote start. its mot there any more, and there was another that i liked, but i cant recall now. but definitely another previous option in the old radio not there any longer.

as for the apps, done are present, but it does seem to load an app store. but thats as far as i got. it doenst work while the vehicle is in motion! lol
