So we have U-Conn 4 correct? Can this be updated by Jeep to U-Conn 5? Why do these Jeeps, 4xe mind you, have yesterdays electonics?

The U-Conn app has a lot of great things to monitor. It just runs from here to Jupiter and back on 3G technology.

WTH?

Wireless Apple CarPlay would have been great. Wish the 4xe had it. It’s a feature of Uconnect 5.

Yes UConnect 4c. The wireless is in 5. It does seem backwards to have the older technology in the most technologically advanced Jeep.
I am still trying to figure out why Apple CarPlay won’t work on USB2.

You mean the USB port in the center console? Has worked fine with my iPhone 7.

It works for a time...and then while on the phone it freezes. I cannot figure. Are we not able to talk while plugged in to Apple Car Play?

That's a huge complaint on CarPlay. AA is fine for me in the console. Some JLs don't work on the port because of a block by apple. Jeep rewired late 2020 the console port. Seem like the rewire is the one that drops on occasion. Ortherwise no function.

I wonder how all the other Teslas and EV owners are reacting to Uconnect! Must feel like using Windows 95.

I'd love a factor retrofit when/if they come out with v5. But I doubt they would put UC5 on a 8.4 inch screen. So we would be looking at a new dash, tons of rewiring, module upgrades, some allowance by the factory for coding, telematics, etc.

If they try to match the Bronco's system, likely the cameras as well.

Huge complaint, indeed. I am not sure if it is Apple or Jeep or both. I just want to be able to use the port in the center console (USB2) to connect my iPhone to CarPlay reliably and consistently. It has been working fine from the dash port (USB1) but I have the cable sticking out and it is unsightly.

I think everybody hates using that front port.

I'm wondering how apple would know it's connected to a specific port on a Uconnect system and why they blocked it.

I think it's worse, max one way latency to Jupiter is 53 minutes, two way is double. You are lucky to get the app to refresh or get a charging notification in under 120 minutes.
