Re the "always on" and no standby (volume staying muted) issue.....we all have a similar complaint. I recently spoke with a Uconnect rep/specialist at Jeep/Chrysler and he said there is no off on the Uconnect system,. ie. it is always on. I said "That's okay, just as long as I can have all sounds off when I choose, and have it stay off when I restart the car". He said that does not exist either, as the Mute button only holds during the current operation of the car. Once you shut the car off and then restart, volume level will no longer be muted, so our only option is to turn the volume knob. Grrrr! I told him that's a design flaw, for sure. He is going to take it up with Uconnect to see if there might be a fix for that we could download. I believe I saw a post from a Forum member who mentioned that there was already a download fix for the mute issue but Jon at Uconnect said "not to his knowledge". I think someone said this was for Canadian purchased Jeeps.
Anyone recall or have any new information? Thanks!
