A few Uconnect ?'s

I got my car back from the deal yetserday after 17 days...I had asked them to update the Uconnect with the new software, but I don't see the via mobile apps under apps. Is there a way to check what version I have?

Also, is there a place to sign up to find out when new updates come out, for Uconnect and Nav? I saw that the update had come out on this forum (thank you) but it seems there should be a way for them to let us know.

Lastly, I have been searching for info on the wifi. Does anyone know what the bandwidth is (ie will Netflix work on it, because I know if it is not high enough it will not, like on Southwest Airlines). And is unlimited usage for the time period you pay for or is it capped at a certain GB limit?

Thank you!!!

Ok I figured this one out. Look in settings under apps and your version is listed there. My dealer DID NOT update mine would still love the other answers!

I haven't heard anyone mention that they have the UCONNECT wifi. Here's the link about it: http://www.driveuconnect.com/features/wifi/
It says its 3G and can stream video, but I haven't heard of any real-life performance reports.

Costs money, doubt its very fast...better off tethering to your phone if ever in a situation that would call for the need. Can purchase by the day, week, or month iirc

Remember when you set up your Uconnect account you MUST add a credit card/payment option to unlock the apps.

Frankly besides the useful pandora integration, they have nothing special which I could live with just mounting my phone near the screen anyway.

Actually, no CC is required, you can skip that step if you want.
