Uconnect has been updated to the latest Uconnect “8.4” system software. This update is for new vehicles. However, this update can be applied to recent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) vehicles. For newer model year Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, and Maserati vehicles, the current version of the Uconnect system can be quickly added. The infotainment system for all FCA vehicles is the Uconnect system. Upgrading the software is easy and we can help our readers and owners of these vehicles to safely and quickly do the update. To make things easy, Uconnect even created a YouTube video showing how, but we also breakdown the information needed for customers to enjoy all the perks of the latest update and knowledge for how to update today and in the future. 

Not Sure How To Update the Uconnect System?

The Uconnect system is packed with many features, but the latest version has implemented updates that improve the interface to make the user experience better and seamless. The upcoming Uconnect 5 will support up to five driver profiles and allow for speeds up to five times faster than the outgoing Uconnect 4 system. However, this Uconnect won’t debut till the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica does. The current and latest upgrade is going to help remove any potential bugs or issues the Uconnect system might have carried. For those who don’t want to even bother with dealing with achieving this update, we welcome our readers to visit our service center with a simple online appointment. We’re ready to assist all our guests to receive help maintaining their vehicle to its highest abilities. 

What Readers Need To Update To The Latest Uconnect System

For those who want to try to perform the update at home, all that is needed is a computer, your vehicle and an empty 4GB USB memory stick. The update requires the knowledge of the VIN number, found on every vehicle on the bottom left (driver’s side) of the windshield. This number is used in the Uconnect system to determine which version of the software is available for the vehicle. If any additional updates are required, the vehicle will have to go through those updates first. The website that will have the software is the Uconnect system webpage, dedicated solely for this use.    

Once the download is added to the computer, add the update to the USB drive. The vehicle must be running, but in park for the completion of the process. The USB stick must be inserted and the vehicle will alert the driver about the update. If the current version is running, there will be no need to update. Just be sure to check if the latest version has a higher number than the current one running in the vehicle. At our service center, we can also make sure all things are running properly as any updates take place. We welcome any guests to come in for their regular maintenance and this is one of those items that counts.
