Chrysler ought to pay this website for keeping their own customers informed. Damned if you can file a complaint of a known problem and get notified by Chrysler when the fix is in!

The update refused to work for me--I suspect since I refuse to run anything but firefox.

I have an appointment with a dealer shortly so that's probably moot. I am reading good things about what it does here, I hope it also fixes the completely non-functional voice recognitions system.

But am I to assume that instructions--if you can read them--don't give you an itemized list of each thing that will be changed or improved? Like any software company worth it's salt will do?

They've never been good at release notes. If they give any at all they are vague and incomplete.

I just posted a long message here that totally disappeared, and don't have time to get back to retype it until later.

For those trying to get the download now, there are problems on the server end they are working on. Maybe give it some time and try again. Or wait until I can post more info tonight (to replace the post that was wiped out).

Luckly I saved mine to my hard drive before they started with problems. I was to put it on an Flash Drive and up-date it last night. Up-date was easy, flawless on install.

Installed the update the day it came out. Since it's a new truck haven't gone through this process before but was very straightforward as long as you follow the instructions in the PDF.

Well, I hope that the software update lasts longer then my last post!
In short, I downloaded and uploaded on on my Mac using Safari. No issues other then losing FM presets.

Here is the link:

Anyone have problems? I tried to download this twice from two different browsers (one of which successfully downloaded 13.19) and I got a "System product mismatch, stick contains VP4 but target is VP3" error during my attempted installation.

Any ideas?

UPDATE

After research, I can only guess that VP4 is for the RA4 / 8.4AN radios and VP3 is referring to the RA3 / 8.4A radio that I have. I'll have to wait for someone to post the right version for me because the uconnect site is crap.
