    Uconnect Software / Firmware Updates?

    I saw the other day that the 2016 Uconnect 8.4 has got a long list of really nice new features that I would love to have on my 2015 Uconnect 8.4, mainly a button to see the reverse cam at anytime, and SXM holding up to an hour of music on each of the stations saved in your favorites. I'm hoping Uconnect will release these features in an update for the older models since it seems to be the exact same hardware, but is that the case?

    Have the older 2013 & 2014 Uconnect 8.4's received updates to bring them features that came in 2015?

    Or am I going to have to look into alternative means for getting the updated features on my 2015 Uconnect?

    It's not looking good, looking at the comments on this Fiat blog post about the Uconnect updates, it seems Fiat is comfortable screwing their existing customers by not releasing the updates to previous models. Someone in the comments asked if these updates would be available on 2015's and the blog author responded with this lame response: "No timeframe nor details yet, but our Uconnect team is looking at compatibility and what can be upgraded from previous 8.4 systems. For now, best we can say is stay tuned."

    Which sounds like Italian for No, if you want the new features you can either hold your breath or buy a new truck.
