Default UConnect 14.25.05 Released

I just want to let everyone know a new firmware update is available for the 8.4a and possibly others. Biggest change for me noticed was the jittery backup cam video feed is now very smooth.

So I am on the older version, I think its 14.03.05 right? This was up to date when i bought the truck....last weekend. How quickly things change.

When i check the Uconnect site it says it cant find my VIN. Which according to Uconnect means I am on the current version.

I have the 8.4AN. Does this update apply for me? Last thing I want to do is try to update and brick the "brain-hub" of my new Ram.

I have noticed some minor jitter in the backup cam, but not really bad where it affects the functionality.

Thanks!

I installed it this morning. Installation took about 12 minutes or so.
Not sure if I notice any better XM reception, or if camera is better.

Default Installed new Rev

Downloaded from link provided above and installed. I have noticed the rear camera is smoother. I used to get shuttering in the past, now its not.

To 10-12 minutes with the on board modem taking the longest. It seemed stuck at one point then it moved along.

thanks!

Incorrect, it means just that; it cannot find your VIN. If you do not need the update then it will tell you so, such as "there is no update for your vehicle". It will also identify your radio and which update is for you.
