    2013 Ram 1500 Longhorn. Message keeps popping up about a software update is available. After some messages here and other sites I'm about half afraid to do it. Called a local FCA dealer's service dept and they said if everything is working OK with the radio and Nav and etc. don't bother with it. Said if I wanted to I could schedule an appointment. $$$$$

    After I updated my Dart with a thumb drive in the driveway— pressing the A/C or the recirculate buttons sometimes makes the climate control run the temperature up to heat.

    It’s maddening to have the car turn on the heater when you turn on the A/C.

    Hi Glopart,

    The Over the Air update that is popping up on your radio provides the following fixes/enhancements:

    "• **Fix for sport mode not working in the performance menu page (2015 LA equipped with 6.4L and 5.7L Sales Codes ESH and EZC Only).**
    • Adds Apple Siri Eyes Free capability for iPhone owners.
    • Auto Play can now be configured.
    • Adds do not disturb text message feature.
    • The ability to drag and drop icons into the menu bar.
    • Fix for radio locks up/frozen.
    • Fix for stuck on black/blank screen.
    • Human Machine Interface (HMI) improvements.
    • Several navigation improvements.
    • Fix for radio loss of time display.
    • Media devices, phone pairing and Bluetooth usage improvements.
    • Improved tuner performance.
    • Enhanced Voice recognition (VR) performance.
    • Enhancements in Connectivity Apps (Yelp, Pandora, Aha, etc)."

    One concern some RAM truck owner's have experienced after the update is a blurry back up camera which, if you experience it, can be fixed by performing a hard reset of your Uconnect system: Settings -> System Preferences -> Restore to Factory Default. Feel free to send us a PM with any additional questions!
