Uconnect update, what is new?

What is new with this uconnect update. It updated when I was driving, came up with the button to see what was new WHILE I WAS DRIVING, but would not let my wife the passenger push it because I was driving and I have not seen it since.

I did notice if one of my favorites are playing on the XM radio the blue text in the top left shows up and I can select it. Do not remember seeing that before and is nice.

But what else is new?

No the updates do not allow you to use either of those. Most of the time the updates are transparent (bug or security fixes).

I am still waiting. They are releasing by region so it doesn't flood the network. Also for some dumb reason they are not/have not released it on their website to install via USB... Just Over The Air (OTA).

I am waiting on the fix with the time skewing.

My is a 2015, I do not have an active uconnect so I figured that is why I never saw it. Then it started showing up. Annoying because you have to leave your truck on for 15 minutes till it downloads. It tells you to make sure you are not in a garage. The annoying part is mine always popped up the option when I was shutting down the truck. So Drive an hour to somewhere and it pops the screen in the parking lot. Say no, drive home and it pops the screen in the driveway. So was taking an hour plus trip, so I sat in the driveway a few minutes put it in gear, put it back in park and it showed up. So I said to start it, put it in gear and drove away. Radio played while it was downloaded, but then shut off for the 40 minutes it took to install.

there are 3 different Uconnects radios, which one do you have?
my uconnect 5 shows
Update 1: UCONNECT® 5.0_MY15_RA2C_RJ2C_RG2_PNET_15_12_5__07_03_05
Service Bulletin ID: 08-11-17 & 08-12-17
Release Date: 2015-06-10

but I already put 1 update on it after I bought it in July 2015, so I think I can assume this update is on my radio already

2015 Dually, Aisin, 4:10's 4WD.
2016 Arctic Fox 990 Truck Camper

I haven't played around with mine much since the update but the chicks voice that reads the texts to me is different than it was previously. That's all I've noticed thus far.

DISCUSSION:
All MY13-16 vehicles sold in the U.S. with the RA3 or RA4 radio can now receive software
updates “over-the-air”. Updates to software level 17.11.07 will occur in a phased roll-out.
The software is updated through the built-in cellular modem in the radio which is
connected to the Sprint® 3G network. Customers will see a notification on their radio
screen when new software is available for their radio (Fig. 1). The owner will have the
option to update the radio or schedule the update for later. There is not an option to
decline the update indefinitely. The update must be performed.

I need to test it then, the navigation and voice recognition were pathetic, especially the navigation. It almost always asked me what country I was in first. Very annoying.
