    UConnect Nav Guidance Volume setting

    I've been trying to track down this major annoyance. I went to the dealer, they are no help. They say that they checked and all vehicles do this, so it's not a problem with my BigHorn. Yes of course, it's a firmware/software problem in all units! LOL I guess their mindset is that if my truck is...

    No sound at all on 8.4 system?

    New problem this morning - when I got in my truck for the second time today, I found out I had no audio coming out of my speakers. No radio/XM/bluetooth/aux/phone call or even touch screen beeps. I cycled the power on the unit several times, cycled the truck through on/off/accessory/run...

    12 Inch Uconnect volume reducing on its own

    Have a 19 Laramie Sport 4x4 with the 12in Uconnect. Recently I have been having an intermittent issue with the media volume that happens at least once every couple of days. It seems that when I use the steering wheel mounted audio controls I'll eventually run into a situation where the audio...

    Drop and Drag issue with Uconnect 12 inch screen

    When I drop and drag an app to the main menu bar of the display, it reverts to its previous position after an engine restart. I reported this to Jennifer at RAM Cares here on these forums. She contacted a Uconnect engineer an found this will likely be addressed in a future software update, but...

    Where is the trailer backup guide?

    All, I have a Ram 1500 Limited with 12inch UConnect system. I have seen photos and videos of the backup camera where it shows the trailer hook backup guideline. However, I can't seem to find that on my truck. Mine shows just the left and right guidelines but not the trailer hook guideline. Does...

    Why does radio power button turn off display?

    I don't understand the point of the radio power button on my 12" UC. In our BMW, the radio power button is basically a mute button (or play/pause button when CarPlay is connected). In UConnect, it seems to both mute/pause the audio as well as turn the entire screen off. This makes no sense...

    Active air dam / grill shutters disabling?

    Anyone know if you can turn the active air dam and grill shutters off in the UConnect system? There are a lot of chunky rocks where i live and don't want to risk damaging the air dam even if it does go up when it hits something. Also it would be nice to be able to close the grill shutters when...

    ParkSense / Navigation worth it?

    Hey guys, just wondering what you thought about the parksense system on the 1500. For me to option them it would cost about $750 but I'm not sure how useful they are. How useful are they in parking situations when you already have a backup camera...Do they malfunction often in rain, mud, or...

    12.1” Uconnect intermittent pauses

    So my 12” UConnect system decided today to pause audio every few seconds on all media types. (I.e. SiriusXM, AM, FM, USB, CarPlay, Bluetooth AND CD. Every available option). What happens is the audio will come through for about 2 seconds and then pause for 1. This is non-stop. I’ve powered the...

    New to this, Ive owned my new 2019 Ram for about 2 month now. Started to noticed that after 15 min of streaming music through bluetooth (using Note9) it begins to skip, like how an old cd player would.

    8.4 Uconnect Restarting out of Nothing

Sometimes it happens 3-4 times in a row over the first two minutes. Sometimes it seems to trigger the restarts when I connect my...

    Hello all. Bought the limited on Sunday, really liked the truck. Then all of a sudden today, three days after I bought the truck the whole UConnect system is dead. I mean it won’t load up anything. I can tell the screen is on because it’s not pure black screen like when the truck was turned...

    5th Gen 12" Uconnect Issues

    When listening to XM radio the volume is significantly lower than other inputs. Even maxed out it just isn't as loud. I thought about making a STAR case but figured I would do a little research first. Mine is the first Longhorn that has landed at our store and one of our customers has a Limited...
