    It adds Siri Eyes Free

    Siri Eyes Free (for iPhone 4S or later) lets drivers speak in natural language to send text messages, play music, set reminders, place phone calls, and access directions. It is activated by holding down the steering wheel button until the Siri screen appears and tones are played. Siri messages are processed remotely, not by the car, which should increase accuracy and allows the greater flexibility

    While doing the update it updated some the following:
    EQ
    XM Update
    HD Update

    Doesn't seem like it changed the radio quality but the bluetooth quality seem to be a tad better. Could be in my head too

    Please post which car you have, either Challenger or Charger. I just checked the uConnect page for updates for my 2016 Challenger Hellcat and it showed no updates available at this time. Thanks.

    How does it differentiate between Siri and the car's own voice recognition when you push that button? I like the concept and will head to the dealer tomorrow for the update, but I already use the button for other voice recognition stuff.

    Yes. So if your phone is paired it will automatically go to Siri rather than the car's on Voice recognition? That video shows Siri already on the screen. It's on 0.42 long. Do you say launch Siri first?

    You hold down on the v/r button and wait for Siri to pop up

    Works like absolute ass so far. Most times Siri won't come up and when it does, it takes about 30 seconds to process each word and another minute before it attempts to execute the command. Not impressed at all...

    Works perfectly on my car with iPhone 6. You sure the issue isn't your phone?
