As other's I went from 13 items in my main settings screen to just 8 after the update. After the update was finished, I started my Ram & let it idle for a few minutes then went back into settings and I had all 13 of my options back just like it was before.

Some of the things I noticed: 1) Some minor cosmetic updates. 2) The addition of the ability to disable the mirror dimming. 3) A very useful "Search" option under the media Browse selection. 4) Typing in the Navigation mode is much quicker.

I didn't get a chance to try out the radio part but saw that HD Radio & Satellite were units that got updated.

The only negative thing that I would complain about is that I did loose all of my AM/FM presets (but not my Satellite presets). They didn't come back. Since that is my only complaint, I am happy with the update.

A couple more things I noticed in addition to what has been posted. More cover art is now being displayed when the source is the USB. The navigation maps have been updated to Q4 of 2012.

Hi all, I had some initial issues downloading the update. Use Safari to download the file from Uconnect.
Here is the link to download the SWDL.ISO file.
Update went well - except for the fact that I froze my arse off .. it was cold in the truck !
Here is the link:

The text message display has benn changed a bit as well from 13.19. Also now with an iphone if you hit the 'reply' button after receiving a text it tells you the phone isnt supported istead of the button just being greyed out.

Day 2 and I havent found any glaring issues with it. Except for some reason it only sees 3500 songs out of 4100 on the USB stick now. Its possible it dropped some audio formats or is ignoring song names with odd characters now.

I did the update last night as well. So this really fixes the SXM cut-out? Does anyone know if it also updated the NAV system - the calibration on my 2014 was way off.

Does this fix the bluetooth audio disconnecting issue? Can't stand that I'm playing music via bluetooth and it disconnects only to reconnect a minute later. Upgraded my uconnect today, instructions were flawless and process took 15 minutes. Fingers crossed this fixes the issue or I'm going to demand a warranty replacement of the radio system with one that does work correctly.

I am on my second radio and my music bluetooth disconnects also. I have a galaxy S3. I haven't tried it since my upgrade if you do let me know if it still disconnects. Something tells me it may be phone related and not the radio. I don't get to upset over this one because I keep an ipod in my truck and it sounds much clearer than streaming Bluetooth.
