New Software UConnect 6.5 revision#16.02.34

I've just seen that new software for UConnect 6.5 was released on 17 May: only a few days ago. It is available for download on the UConnect web site. The revision number is 16.02.34. That site also contains service bulletin information that describes problems fixed by the update.

I plan to ask my dealer to install it when I take my TH in for its 1000km courtesy service. I'm tempted to go ahead and install it myself, but I don't want to disturb my good relationship with the dealer at this early time!

By the way, the UConnect site doesn't list the Renegade, so select another Jeep model that has UConnect 6.5 (for example, a 2016 Compass) and then enter your own vehicle's VIN.

I'll be interested to hear comments from anyone who has it or gets it.

I see in another thread that there is a software version 16.05.32 for UConnect 6.5, in addition to the just-released 16.02.34. Going by the dates of the posts, 16.05.32 appears to pre-date 16.02.34. The discussion on that other thread is rather mixed up, but seems to mainly relate to different models of Renegade to mine (mine is Jan 2016 build, Australian TH). Obviously the 16 prefix means 2016 release, but I'm now wondering whether different models get different software packages. Previously I had thought not, since many of us seem to be on 15.21.37, and that version also apparently relates to some Fiat 500's. I'd like to know the real story on FCA's software versioning policy.

OK, so we now have at least three version numbers all released in 2016. Clearly the first two digits (16) represent the year (2016). The second two digits DO NOT represent the month. Also, since iamstillvince sees no newer update, they must be quite vehicle or model specific.

I have a few issues with my TH (not problems, just strange behaviour) so I will try to get my dealer to update the software.

If you mount the ISO file you can see information on the release and dates where the various code sections were built.

16.02.34 finally installed onto my 2016 TH by dealer. They tried 3 times. I tried once and also failed, even though I thought I had the correct swdl.iso file on my USB.

It hasn't fixed all my issues, but perhaps some. I'll wait and see.

OK, from all the evidence in posts to this forum, it seems that there are numerous different 2016 versions (all begin with 16). So they are obviously customised for different markets and different models, and perhaps even for subtle build variations.

My recent 16.02.34 update hasn't fixed everything. Actually I don't know for certain whether it's fixed ANYTHONG, but certain things haven't re-occurred yet so there's hope. Here are some of the (fairly trivial) problems that I had -

* Audio equalisation (tone) controls have no effect (NOT fixed by update).

* Radio occasionally loses its preset stations (possibly only on AM band).

* English language selection occasionally reverts to Italian and has to be reset.

* Reversing camera loses its guide-lines and has to be reset.

* The Radio-on function (comes on with the engine, doesn't come on with the engine, or remembers the most-recent switch-off status) is irrational. I haven't figured out the pattern of the unpredictable behaviour. (NOT fixed by update)

* The park-sense inhibit switch will not extinguish its red light when pressed above the parksense-threshold speed. However, despite the lamp remaining on until the car slows down, the function is actually toggling between off and on with each press. For example, one press and it's back on (even though it doesn't indicate that). Two presses and it's off. Three presses and it's on. You can only know which way it is when you slow down to parking speed. It's a nuisance, and also could be dangerous if you think it's on but it is not. (NOT fixed by update)

Has anyone else got these issues? JeepCare, do you know about these problems? More to the point, does Jeep care?

Sometimes Jeep cares. Sometimes we're waiting on them to care.
