    Satelllite Radio Song/Artist Information

    Through UConnect there seems to be a serious limitation on the song/track information that gets displayed on the screen. There are really just two lines of text, each with a very limited number of characters. You often see incomplete titles, artist names or other information. This is strange because if you're listening to FM radio, UConnect has the same limited screen size but it will scroll through text so you can get the complete song/artist/album information with a couple glances at the screen. For Satellite radio it doesn't do this. Is there a setting I can change or are we stuck with partial information from Sirius/XM?

    Anyone know if this is a satellite radio limitation or just a programming issue in Uconnect? If FM stations are able to get all the song information, you would think that Sirius XM can do it.

    I contacted FCA and they said this is not their issue and I should contact SiriusXM. I did so. The SiriusXM customer service person was helpful but shifted the blame back tot Dodge. It turns out that the signal includes the information but older/cheaper satellite receivers only display the first few characters of the song information. The tech for receiving the full song information has been available for many years so it seems that Dodge just chose to include cheaper hardware that does not receive the complete information. The other possibility is that it's just a Uconnect programming issue but I doubt that.

    As I said earlier you just need to update your gracenotes. there is a guy on the other dodge forums that keeps a database of all the updates in iso format. Go to his site, use the guest log in info. look up your radio. you can dl any firmware updates and grace note updates. then burn them to a dvd as an iso and install in your radio. Us guys with the older uconnects have to do this regularly since our radios are no longer supported by uconnect.

    I'm not sure I understand how updated Gracenotes would help me here. I currently get the complete song information (scrolling when necessary) when listening to regular radio. This has only been an issue with Satellite radio. And I do get the song information and the album art. The issue is that I only get the first several characters of song information.

    Good question. have you checked to see if you have the latest version of the firmware? maybe it s a glitch that was fixed in an update. Dont go by what the uconnect site says, because it seems to tell everyone they are current. Use the link i gave earlier and see what the latest firmware is. Most the time if your having a problem like that, its because of the software.

    in my experience, most sirius artist/title info fits in the space available (might just be the stations I listen to..), but as far as I know there is no way to make it scroll if it overflows.
