I picked up my 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk over the weekend and so far I love almost everything about the vehicle with the exception of the UConnect system. The instant the vehicle is turned on I get a "Sound System Unavailable" message in the instrument cluster. Over the past 3 days the Uconnect system has become completely unresponsive twice. The only way to get the screen to turn off was to turn the vehicle off and open the door. Additionally, the UConnect system has completely rebooted unexpectedly while driving. I like the vehicle, but these issues are putting a major downer on my first Jeep and first new car experience. After searching around other forums, it seems the Renegade suffered from something similar a couple months ago, but I don't know if there was a solution.
Not sure if it is related, but I have also been on the phone with the Sirrius XM Guardian support line several times trying to activate the free trial of the remote services. All of the in car features work when the UConnect system is not restarting/freezing and the support techs tell me everything is active and setup, but when I try to use the mobile app or log into the Jeep owner website, both tell me the services are not active.
I bought the vehicle for its size and capability and not necessarily all of the bells and whistles, but these issues are adding frustration to what should be a fun new vehicle. Are there any other Jeep Compass owners having similar issues?
