Just got a Unconnect update request in my 2016 challenger RT 8.4 radio. 9-19-19 today. Anybody else get this request and what does it do? These things scare me. Was just about to get a Tazer and I wonder if it will still work with this update. Thanks

Got this 2 nights ago, did the update since it's basically forced upon you. Now it asks me to schedule the update everytime I turn on the car and everytime I switch screens. Cant use radio, bluetooth, nav, etc. Sports mode still works so I'm figuring its unrelated to that other update that tanked everyone's screen and did away with sports mode.

Any help is appreciated.

Edit: 2015 R/T Shaker Plus

See if you can download the update directly from uconnect and update via USB.

Just entered my VIN on the U-Connect link provided by Chally Tatum. Fortunately, my 2018 Scat Pack is up to date.

The patch notes are usually found in the TSB but I am still curious about the software version number.
Weird this comes up now. This is the message from the website:

UCONNECT_8.4A_RA3_17.43.01_MY16_NAFTA

SERVICE BULLETIN ID: 08-046-18 REV. A
RELEASE DATE: 2018-03-23

AFAIK that is the latest firmware for the 2015-2016 radios. It was supposed to be the firmware that fixed the bricked sport mode for everyone...not just the manuals which was something like 17.11.37. It was previous revision to that 17.11.07 that started it all.

Release notes for 17.43.01 can be found here.

Looks like I have version 17.11.07. I looked it up in my settings. That is what is trying to update every time I get in the car now.

17.43.01 "should" be fine BUT I vaguely remember one member having an issue with that version. On my 2015 RT+ I had no issues with it.

BTW if you prefer to do the update via USB an not OTA here is the procedure.

18.11.07...looks like yet a new version. Thanks for the screenshot! Quick search on the web and you see the Ram guys talking about it but no one seems to have the TSB or release notes to see what it "fixes".

I have a 2016, but no notice of an update yet. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing after what you went through. . :rolleyes:

Well, I got an E-mail today telling me what to do when I get the notification on my radio, but still no notification on my end with the radio. I'm eating popcorn just waiting here.
