The differences may be more complicated than uhuhuisadi lets on.

As my friend explained to me one time, they both roughly mean "to know." The use cases for 理解 and 了解 overlap, but sometimes only one or the other is appropriate.

I get them confused a lot :) Maybe Grace, Brendan or David have a better explanation...
