    I talked to the people at uconnect yesterday and they told me that the new update is coming the first week in May. They also said it will be over the air and depending on the age of the vehicle it should have CarPlay.

    Not sure. I have a 16 rallye. They said they are going to start doing ota updates now. Should be out by the end of next week so if you get in your car and see a weird message on the radio that's what it is. He said the process is the same just no need for the USB stick, it will automatically download then you have an option to install or delay the install.

    Lucky you I’m still waiting for the email. When you get it let us know. I’m waiting for CarPlay. They are pushing it out to 1000 people at a time which is crazy because it will take them forever to get to everyone.

    I'm with a Uconnect representative and they said this update has only to do with bugs and nothing with Apple carplay or Android auto. Does anybody else have any information I'm actually possibly trading my car in just to go get Android auto.

    I have a 2015 RT with navigation and got the update e-mail last week. Received the update yesterday. I have installed it but haven't really explored it yet, so, more to follow.

    A couple of quick observations. My satellite radio presets were saved, on my wife's '14 Cherokee they were erased when she got the update. Also, it appeared that my paired phones were preserved, but, they were not. I had to delete them and re-add my phones. The GPS navigation icon changed from a blue arrow to a red car. Don't know if the maps were updated.

    That's it for now.
