Now i'm speaking for myself (but im sure there are others) and it kinda pisses me off when i bought a 40k+ vehicle and come to find out the head unit CANNOT be customized and other 30k or less vehicles can. The new acura TLX for example. Personally not a fan of the interior but hell, least they can offer the option of customizing your background.

**End Rant**
yeah I guess I didn't mean I don't care about additional functionality, ill take it if available but with that I understand that functionality can change from model year to model year. So id rather fight the fight on the 3 year old map issue as that is more an expected entitlement that the map system will be supported for at least a reasonable period of time after production, not end of life as soon as it came off the production line.

Re: 2014 8.4AN Uconnect Update to 15.06.1

Sorry Guys,

I forgot to come back to this... I have a 15 RAM and Cherokee. I have run the 15.06 on those units. I was asking the OP what his vehicle year and model was to see if it was a 2015. You SHOULD NOT run the 15.06 on a 14. It fixes specific issues with the 15 radios and will break numerous functionalities in the 14 Radio should you actually get it to run the install.

There will be further releases to the 13/14 RA3 and RA4 Series Radios. I have seen later revisions in testing but when they updated the hardware specs in the 2015 and forward part number, they broke a whole new slew of things. Treat them like different radios for now. I know there are people saying they are the same, THEY ARE NOT. Also I can tell you they are not specifically better at anything at this point either, so don't think you are missing out on anything.

My 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 14.25 has less gremlins than I got with the 2015 radios.

Thanks Will. This is a little off topic but any news on updates to the 3 year old maps? A lot of people are getting aggitated including me as time continues to tick by on those. Thanks

Totally ok, They were going to do it but still have some infrastructure issues with the delivery. We all remember the 13.19 update and the reasons I started posting the radio updates in the first place, well they are trying to get their ducks in line. The large file size is an issue, so they discussed SD card distribution but it doesn't sound like that will happen either.

Every time I heard that it was coming it got bumped back (and one version update). I don't have any concrete info at this time except that it very very likely will be posted as a download, they are probably going to do the 2014s with a free update and it is supposed to be the proverbial "soon"

That is all I got

Would that this will come to pass!
I'm all for a download, if it's as easy as the FW updates, piece o' cake!

Re: 2014 8.4AN Uconnect Update to 15.06.1

I've posted this on two other threads, but I guess I'll post it here too.

Well, after contacting Chrysler Customer Assistance again, for the second time this month, I received this reply, in part:

"Our records show that you have contacted us by email on the first of
April and we have addressed your concern and had stated that there are
no map updates available on your vehicle. We have updated your file to
reflect the latest information you provided in the email message.

We thank you for your recent email, although it does not contain any
information that would cause a change in the previous decision.

After thoroughly reviewing your request and the files on this matter, we
respectfully concur with the decision rendered by our Customer Service
Representative."

So much for Chrysler Customer Assistance.
