Hey folks -

If you hadn't noticed - there's an update for the firmware for our radios available off the fiat uconnect site. All you need is your VIN and a usb flash drive.

The radio is definitely a bit more responsive, and a bit better on the xm radio side of things in terms of losing reception at the randomest places! It's almost as good as my brother's 500 now!

It's a maybe 10 min update process max. I just popped in and drove, and let it update while I was on my way grocery shopping. It was done before I even got there. Well worth the wait!

HOWEVER - this is radio firmware *ONLY* - there's still no map update *sigh*

Does not apply to 500Ls with Uconnect 5. So I'll continue to experience patchy XM reception for the final three weeks or so remaining on my current subscription.

What is the new version? Last time I checked it was 13.49. And that was in September. The dealer replace the 6.5" radio in my 500L and the firmware is 15.05. The splash screen no longer says FIAT Beats Audio. It just says uConnect.

I switched to the SIRIUS app so I can listen to it wherever I am. I just connect it to the car through Bluetooth. It gets a lot better signal than the radio in the car and it's about $15 a month.
