2014 In-Dash navigation errors
I am making a separate thread about this condition because it is different than the symptoms reported previously. This time is with a perfectly working navigation (RA4).
For the purposes of this thread, I am going to refer to the in dashboard navigation as the part of the 7 inch display behind the steering wheel which provides route guidance. This usually shows generic intersections, a yellow arrow and has 3 lines of text: two for text and one for the distance.
A few days ago, on my car, the text input started being truncated. At first I got confused, and I thought there is a limit to the number of characters that can be displayed. Of course there is but that is not my top concern: the words get misspelled or truncated when it makes no sense to do so (meaning the words are shorter than the system's alphanumerical display limit)
Example # 1
AddisoN <-- Letter "N" was missing
Example # 2
Kennedy Ex <--- a lot more characters (3 plus a space) than in Example # 1
I have also documented entries like this:
Example # 3
as well as
Example # 4
where the second level contains but 2 characters or none at all. And I do not remember this to be a problem. Might be the Alzheimer but in one month of ownership I have not noticed the text display there to be anything but accurate and complete. These problems appear to have started around last Tuesday-Wednesday - but the navigation system as a whole has not had a "freeze" nor there have been any momentary lapses in the GPS sensitivity (as previously reported). I have not applied the UPDATE yet (I have downloaded it from Chrysler ) as I am awaiting the results of Jeep's "investigation". Now, these symptoms appear to have started after the update became available...which goes on to further strengthen my and other people's suspicion that any "OTA updates" mess up the system. Except that this 370 mb update is not OTA but who knows, maybe the system knows about it.
I have not previously noticed street names being truncated in such a manner. Has anyone noticed the same?
PS: Car is at the stealership, getting its navi checked, oil changed.
