Same reason people update any computer software. They are making bug fixes and developing new features all the time. I'm more interested in bug fixes because voice control only works if I have less than 500 songs on a 4gb drive (and even then not all voice controls).

My dealer just did it part of getting my 1st service done...no choice.
New radio gets installed tomorrow morning.
I only lost the compass & getting text message through the radio. Everything else was work other than having to reset station in the AM/FM area.

I wonder how many radios the update trashed?

It trashed my radio.

Well, after updating and already posting here that mine was a success, I noticed the compas didn't work. I took it to the dealer today ... New radio should be in mid next week. Grrrrr.
There's already a handful of us on The Z that have trashed their radios, I can't imagine how many other people have as well.
Anyone who got a new radio - does it come with whatever software update you tried to install?

Well after new radio installed Friday, still had no text or compass.
Head tech took it back into the shop and ran a diagnostics and found some stuff. They said needed order some hub part that has to do with all the wireless stuff. Well as I was driving the direction started to show up in the line above the centre info, on the left side (temp on right side) this has never been showing up on this screen. Next the compass started to work & texting coming through the radio again.
So they are canceling the hub, will just have to see if all keeps working.

Hey everybody. I've had my new 1500 for 5 days, now. Thought I had issues with the Uconnect regarding MP3 files and artwork, but I think I've got it straightened out. I just read through this entire thread. Damn, this is ridiculous! I can't believe a software update is rendering these radios useless! Not cool. Mine came with the latest & greatest version, or so I'm told. It's at 14.05.03. I'm all for doing things on my own, but after reading this thread, if I have any control over updating this system, I'm sticking to the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" theory.

I don't get album artwork, no matter how I connect. But after having my truck at the dealer for the radio 6 or 7 times, I've pretty much given up on little features like that, voice control, compass etc... If it actually plays music, I guess that's all that can be expected from a 30K+ truck
