Uconnect Update for '13-'14 AND NOW '11-12' Vehicles

Well, I guess Hell must have frozen over, because there's an update for the Uconnects…

As excited as I was to install it and try it out, the radio update link is broken for the '14 cars. All you get is an error "file not found".

The link for the '13 vehicles is live, however. Anyone want to give it a spin and let us know if anything has been fixed?

There are actually two updates. One for the radio, and another for the Garmin modules if you have Nav. The Garmin update will bring your firmware version to 4.30, and will change the model number from CTP13 to CTP14. Other than making it marginally more difficult to update the maps from a Garmin nuvi, I'm not sure what else it does.

I'm getting very tempted to try and see if the '13 radio update will install in my '14.

Edit: All update files are now live. Get them at driveuconnect.com

Unfortunately nothing seems to have changed for me with the exception of the version. At least the items I thought should be fixed such as the whole artwork issue doesn't appear to be touched at all.

I'll have to reflash my phone to kit kat in order to tell if the SMS issue and AVRCP issues have been addressed.

I'll report back.

Mods (2005 C): Stereo only, PAC SNI, Peripheral CHYX, XM Commander, AudioControl four.1, MTX TA5604, MTX TA5601, Polk MMC6500, Polk MMC690, JL CS212R-W0 (2013 C): None..........yet

In addition, I'll have to actually do something with the NAV in order to see if anything noticeable has changed there.

Darn. I was waiting for Cool_V_300C to give us an update, and that wasn't the news I was hoping for...

All hope is not lost yet. I'm flashing my phone back to Kit Kat. Maybe they implemented MAP so we can start getting text messages again. And hopefully we can see track info when bluetooth streaming (I doubt that one but one can hope).

Getting Bluetooth info displayed would be a huge improvement just by itself. I'm extremely curious to see if they've fixed the iPhone issues, too.

Knowing our luck, though, my old iPod Classic will be incompatible after the update!
