F/U for anyone interested -
I took my truck in on Tuesday and reported 4 issues with UConnect 8.4A:
- Outside temp display is off/slow to update
- Compass is off ~50% of the time
- Clock loses time, ~1 min for every 15-20 mins of drive time
- SDCard/USB music intermittently skips every 20 seconds as described above
Dealer called today and advised all problems are related to radio and they have ordered a replacement.
He stated "sometimes it takes 5 days, sometimes it takes 10 days" to get the replacement, but I've read enough on here to know these things are back-ordered. I have no problem waiting if the replacement is a permanent fix.
I picked up the truck this afternoon and they advised they'll call when the new radio arrives to schedule the install. When I got home I noticed on the receipt that they applied 2 RRTs to fix the outside temp and compass. I've seen these posted elsewhere but for those that haven't seen them:
RRT 13-023 - addresses outside temp issue
RRT 13-037 - addresses compass issue
I didn't see that these updates were applied before I drove home. I'll pay more attention over the next few days to verify those issues are resolved. Hopefully the replacement radio won't have those problems at all...
