I tried going through this thread and tried search but it just wasn't working out.

Is there any talk of any updates working with Android Auto? I saw some stuff on the web but it talked about it being available only for new cars.

I doubt there will be an update to add Android Auto to the current system. It requires better hardware then what is in the current Uconnect systems. Also I have seen news that FCA will be intergrading Android Auto and Apple's Car Play in the newest version of Uconnect which will have a faster CPU and more responsive touch screen to run it.

Crap that means if I want better integration with my phone I would have to go over to the dark side.

Just updated to the new u-connect software update that showed up for me on the u-connect update link.
Showed up as Service bulletin # 08-054-16 April 20,2016 with Siri.
The TSB also lists many issue fixes and enhancements.
Enhancements included are in Navigation among many other things.
Looks like a big update to say the least.

Couple of notes:
Much easier in that they now have a direct download link for the update to avoid the browser issues of the past.
Just downloaded it to my download folder then copied the red icon ( the unzipped update) to my flash drive.
1. Started the vehicle and let it run out side with the radio/satellite on.
2. put the flash drive in and let it boot up
Just follow the instructions on the u-connect site. Printing them out is helpful.
Printing out the TSB would be even better.
At the end it does take a while for the final screen to pop up, even though the radio and everything is working again.
Just be patient and wait.
Well worth it from what I see.
Of course you could always take it in to the dealer if you are within the 3/36.

Thumbs down DAB radio

NT="Courier New"]
Hi all!

Well, took my car to the dealer yesterday for the Uconnect update which was fine. Then, I asked for the DAB to be activated. No was the answer as there was no DAB in the South Island here in New Zealand Apparently the scanner is even blanked out for doing at my dealers. DAB is on test in Auckland and Wellington and it can be turned on in these 2 cities only! This is mad!

It seems we need special codes to make it go and can't be done from the front panel

I can take the car to either city and have it turned on. Crazy!

No iPhone for me thanks.

Wow. Same thing happened with GM. My 2016 Colorado gas Android Auto but the 2015 Cherokee won't? Disappointing.

If an update shows up, hit the "lets start" button. Follow the directions.
You will need a blank usb drive before you start.
The down load goes on the usb and then the usb goes into your vehicle's usb port.
Just follow the instructions carefully.
