Default Uconnect issue

Hello everyone! Short time lurker, first time poster here.

I just joined the Ram club, buying a 2010 Laramie about a month ago. But I'm having an issue with the Uconnect system and it's going to be about 2 weeks before the dealership can look at it, so I figured I'd ask if it's a common problem.

When starting my truck, the screen display always opens showing "Uconnect" for a few seconds, then the radio starts. That's normal. But probably close to 2 dozen times, the "Uconnect" on the screen doesn't go away. It stays on for probably around 2-3 minutes, then powers itself off for about 30 seconds, then shows "Uconnect" again and the radio starts up. And it's happening a lot more frequently in the last while.

Like I said, I'm getting it looked at by the dealership. I'm just wondering if this has been seen before?

Thanks, Jamie

I was having the same problem but since the firmware in my phone was updated, I have not had that problem. So, when was the last time the phone was updated?

I have an iPhone with the latest update. The screen will still freeze even if I do a remote start for the truck with Bluetooth off on my phone. The phone is far enough away not to connect to the truck and the screen will still freeze.

The RBZ has had some known issues and there is a RRT out that may apply to yours. Take it to the dealer and have them check RRT 10-030.
