    So I just went over one year in my new 20 Laramie 1500. Did NOT renew the Sirius nor the Guardian. What exactly did I lose and what comes with the truck (not with Sirius)? I know I lose the sirius satellite radio, duh. Seems I also lost the ability to remote start my truck from my phone...

  3. 4th Gen UConnect
    My 2017 1500 has the UConnect with the 8.4" screen. I press and hold to save phone presets, and then mysteriously they disappear. Could be 1 key cycle, or could be a weeks worth of key cycles. Anyone else deal with this issue? What have you done to combat it?

    Greetings - for my one and only American car - 2 days out from the dealership - the infotainment center seems to get lost/hung about 2 out of 3 times getting in and starting the truck. Screen basically sits at XM radio loading with the little red dots. if I go to the XM radio page, it's...

    Can anybody tell me what Uconnect 8.4 head unit is plug and play for my ‘16 Ram 1500? Already have the 8.4 but want Apple CarPlay. Any Chrysler that would work please let me in on this secret because I cannot find the information anywhere. Apple CarPlay was not out in trucks until 2018 so I want...

    I have spent all morning searching and failed 😟, please help. I am wanting to know if an 8.4 uConnect radio from a Jeep Compass is a plug and play setup in my 2016 Ram 1500 Limited. I understand I will need some sort of upgrade to my USB hub in the center console. Jeep Compass 8.4, from back...

    I have a 2011 Ram 1500 w/ RHB nav unit. Anyone know where I can get the most recent (even if not current) map update? It seems FCA and Garmin have discontinued support.
  9. 4th Gen UConnect
    I have a 2016 Ram 1500. The Uconnect version is 18.45.01. I have sirius xm radio and navigation as well. My question is that I see a weather app on some uconnect vehicles. Is this something you have to purchase separately, or is it only for certain vehicles? I'd love to be able to see the...

    Turn on and off on it’s own. Only going to the ram emblem then off again. Very frustrating to try and figure out the fix
  11. 2019 Dodge Ram Forum - DT
    I have a 2019 Ram Rebel($62K) with a 12" Uconnect system that has had on and off issues from the beginning... at first I did not recognize them as something was wrong with system because of the new system. When I figure enough is enough I contacted Uconnect and got a case manager Sherri , who...
  12. Custom Modifications- Audio & Video
    My 2013 Ram was upgraded from a Uconnect3.0 to a Uconnect5.0 radio system before I bought it from my son. It was done before he bought it. When I start the truck, the radio turns on, no matter if I had it off when I last shut it down. When the radio is off, it always turns on when I shut off...
  13. 2017 Dodge Ram Forum
    This is a very similar, if not identical problem that the 2018-2019 also had with their Uconnect update. I updated to version 17.43.01 because when I did a search with my VIN on the Uconnect update site, it stated I had an update, which I did via USB on my 2017 RAM 1500 Night Edition with the...
  14. 4th Gen UConnect
    I am a new Ram owner and I love my truck. The Uconnect radio, however, seems to be schitty... I listen exclusively to my phone either podcasts or playlists on Pandora or Spotify, but every time I shut the truck off and turn it back on, the radio is defaulted to the Satilite setting and I end...

    Team, I am in the first year of my Ram, got it in August. It's a Big Horn (that may be pertinent). It has a TON of cool stuff that will run out after the first year. I assume those things will be: on star emergency roadside Sirius XM the cool UConnect app on my phone that let's me start...
  16. LD RAM - General Discussion
    I bought my 2017 1500 new in August 2017. When I bought it, I paid for around $600 for the navigation system. Now I am getting notices from FCA that I can get free shipping for the map update, but I have to pay $149 for Uconnect subscription to get the update. I let my free Uconnect lapse as I...
  17. 4th Gen UConnect
    Bought my 2018 Ram Laramie last December and have had an issue every since with the remote feature in the UConnect App. I have talked to UConnect/SiriusXM/FCA and there is still no solution. According to FCA there is a major update coming out that should resolve it, but it has been almost a...
  18. 4th Gen UConnect
    I would like to activate wi fi. I understand however that with the ignition off wi fi is off. We have an rv and travel quite a bit. If I leave Accessory on for a prolonged period what harm if any occurs? Does it shut off automatically? I have 2014 RAM 2500 w/6.7 Cummins and 8.4 U connect...
  19. 4th Gen UConnect
    I have a new 2018 ram laramie which did not come with remote start. The dealer added remote start, but it doesn't work with the uconnect??? Can this be fixed? I really need someone knowledgeable to tell me absolutely if this can be done. Thank you
  20. 4th Gen UConnect
    Hey all, looking to update my uconnect specifically for the map update. When entering my VIN, it tells me the software is up to date which I know there has been newer updates since I have had my vehicle for 4 years with no updates. I did however find the map update, but for $179 I think it is a...
