Default Anyone with a 8.4 as mad as me?

They released all the pandora and good apps after our trials are over and offer no compensation. I have called to complain my friends 14 has it all during the free trial while we got the shaft. I encourage everyone else who feels like me to call Ram customer service and uconnect. Maybe if enough of us call we can get a free trial of the uconnect we should have had during our trial but they rolled it out last December from what I was told. It should be a recall. We got a unfinished almost beta version now it's way better I tried my friends 14 ram. I won't pay $14.99 for it but want the apps we should have gotton on out new 13's. If enough people call we may get our free trial back.

Bitch loud

Back a couple years ago, 2012 or earlier, one of the radios, i believe it was the RHB 430 Navigation radio
was suppose to have Sirius TRAVEL
It didn't have it, software glitch they said
When they finally made it work, they gave the customer another free year of Sirius radio & a year of free Sirius Travel

Just because they had not made the APPS, should not be on the customer, when you were in the market for your vehicle, a big selling point was the APPS that it turns out they couldn't supply

Did you set up an account at;
https://www.moparownerconnect.com/oc...nersLogin.aspx

and then connect your, for example, Pandora account to your Via Mobile;
Set Up Via Mobile Profile

I have a 2013 and have all the apps running and I did not renew my uconnect which appears to be nothing more than the remote start by smart phone.

Try being a Ram owner in Canada.... 100,000KM warranty, when you guys get 100,000M, and we dont get any of the fancy apps that the US owners do because of no mobile data provider to own it.

I would complain but to be honest none of those apps are worth a dime.

I don't care about uConnect apps... I just want Android (or even iOS in a pinch) that would connect over WiFi through my phone. I don't care about carriers and so on - I already deal with one for my phone, why would I want to deal with another account for my truck?
I'd love to be able to use Google Maps on my 8.4a. And while I'm in shopping, I'd love it if my kids could watch videos and/or play games. Hell, even if I could screencast my phone to the display... That would work for me in most cases.

According to this website you should have some of the apps for a 5 year trial period. http://www.driveuconnect.com/feature...cess/packages/

I had setup the account online. Apparently they lied when I called uconnect and talked to them. I found when the new up date installed I reset the apps. Then a day later apps started loading and showed up. I just use the pandora since I don't have to look at my cell it runs off a separate pandora which it logs into using my phones data which since I have sprint it's unlimited anyway and in most of Houston I get LTE. I do feel for you Canadian owners not getting the same deals as we do. I am already tired of my 13 lone star crew cab 4x4. The apps work but I drive a new loaded express with the black package and 3.92's had a manual slide window and the 5.0 radio. I am thinking of swapping into it. I like the 8.4 screen but this 5.0 has the back up cam and I miss my 3.92's. Think the apps was just one more excuse to convince myself I want a truck with more go to it.
