It doesn't state what the update includes or improves. I think they should have a comment on the website to inform us of what is included in each update.

I have read that it adds album art from an external source, but I can't confirm this.

I was having a lot of problems downloading this on my Windows 7 PC. I called the Uconnect people and they were useless. I found this solution on a Jeep forum and it worked for me. I thought it may help somebody else too.

Quote:
First uninstall the Akamai program if you have it installed. Open the update web page with Internet Explorer. Open the IE options and be sure the popup blocker is unchecked, open compatibility mode and OK the update web page which should be showing. Temporarily disable your antivirus program and your firewall. Then start the process by entering your VIN numbers and continue on through. When the install Akamai comes up select run and let it install. Hopefully the download box will pop up and the download will begin. Have a thumb drive plugged in and save the download to it. After download is complete extract the files in the thumb drive, plug the drive into your radio and let the update run. You will probably have to reset some of your settings when it is done. Don't forget to restart your firewall and AV program.

I updated mine. I am not sure what it does....
I had a real hard time getting the program to download so I called UConnect. I told them I wasn't able to download the update, only the Akamai software. I have Windows 8 and run Google Chrome. They told me to use Safari. Sure as sh!+ Safari worked.

Add me to the update fubared my radio. Not happy. It gets to the end of the install and says updated failed and shows a code #114.

Very frustrating.

Now it is a trip to the dealer to get this fixed.

Dealer did mine Thursday while I was in for my 1st service.
After update NO compass & NO text messages going through the radio.
Friday dealer tech reinstalled update, but same thing. So he has no idea what's wrong so ordering a new radio and hope all will be good.
Gee never had an issue before update. I did hear from dealer that it was to solve some radios freezing up and not shutting down causing dead batteries.
