I need a little uconnect/radio help. When I try to use the USB port with my phone the USB cable light slowly flashes and it doesent connect to my phone nor does it charge it. I thought it was the cable I reciently purchased but the original apple cable does the same thing. iPhone 4 running 7.1.2
When I go to the uconnect website it says there is no update for my 2014 Jeep PATRIOT lattitude. Freaking Chrysler is a mess...
Any assistance is appreciated.

|gstrom99||I did the seat spacer mod. I used a couple of heavy brass bushings under the seat frame front which resulted in about a 5/8" lift. Perfect!|

ok... I'm on a roll
I'm suprised to say the least to see the engineers put the USB port hidden in the glove box. I bought a cheap 10' cable and ran it from the glove box to the console. I drilled a (sloppy) hole in the base of the console and now I have ipod/iphone integration lke everyone else
I think I'm now good

I purchased a 2014 Compass Latitude in September and a few things bothered me right out of the gate. I'm 6 feet tall and I just cant find the sweet spot regarding seat adjustment. I was less than impressed with the horn (U.S.) as well. Long story short...
I installed a new horn (Wolo 320-2T Maxi Sound Universal Horn) and this was a piece of cake. I disconnected the wire to the original horn and made a bracket up in the engine compartment. All needed was a new bracket and apx. 2 ft. of wire and a few wire connectors. No relay or additional power needed. The bracket is apx 8" piece of steel and is attached to an existing ground screw on the frame.
The drivers seat felt like it needed to be a little higher in the front. I almost felt like I was sliding forward (slight exaggeration). I installed two 3/4" spacers under the front seat mounts and that makes quite a difference. FYI 3/4 is the max if you want to use the original bolts holding the seat to the chassis. For the spacer I had a piece of 1" PVC and just cut two 3/4" lengths. I'm sure this would be considered unsafe by the NTSB but it was getting uncomfortable on long trips.
All in all I really like my Compass. in a few years I plan on stepping up to a Grand Cherokee but until then I'm good
If you're wondering I live in upstate NY (snow snow snow) and got the 4x4 FDI with all weather, sun/sound and Uconnect. Having the slightly more agressive Wrangler SR/A should help out
