Uconnect Updated.....

For 3 days Uconnect said it needed to download an update. I had a chance last night after work. It took a while, no big deal. FYI...you cannot control anything on the screen when it is updating. It changed colors on things, okay no problem. It moved the icons around and fixed the Apps button in the middle and I cannot get it to move. Icon size is different now too. My biggest issue is the LONG delay for the Favorites button to show back up after pushing a favorite song.

One bonus...man did they change the voice on the GPS. The factory voice was female and sort of assertive. This new voice is female and sounds sexy. Like, Vegas-take-my-money-stays-in-Vegas sort of voice. My girlfriend might be a bit upset when she hears it haha!

Hmm...sounds like they implemented some of the 2016+ updates. Can you drag and drop apps to the bottom dock? And I think I know what you mean with the voice. The voice in my 16 Charger sounds like a phone sex operator

What does a phone sex operator sound like?
Note: I used to work for an internet provider that provided adult hosting. The interview was... interesting. Things that have seen can not be unseen, and I could probably ruin some cherished childhood memories by describing them.

What form did the notification take? Something on-screen? This happened over-the-air? Do you need a UConnect subscription for the updates?
