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.
do you happen to know what is different in the new radios?

Is it possible that the chipset that the OS runs on- system on achip or whatever they call it- is the same and so that's why the hackers seem to think it's the same?

Still QNX, still Same base engine, mostly the same but the Hardware is different and they have added some stuff not being used yet. What I know, is from some older versions of the Radio Software it will allow you to update to the 2015 Version. Which will load and kind of work but the NAV won't work properly and neither will the media players.

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
Bummer. A free USB key preloaded with Uconnect for the '14s and new maps would be a very nice gesture along the lines of the parts certificates for victims of the recalls.

yep- seems the 15 software can run on the 14 but not correctly". The customtronix guys said something akin to (or at least i interpreted it as...) the sd/usb reader was a new part and needed new drivers and they were able to get the 2015 software to work on 2014 hardware by moving over the drivers.

They haven't mentioned the NAV issues but i've seen that mentioned more than once so not sure what's going on there.

My GUESS is that the 'system on a chip' that qnx runs on is probably the same in both and that's why customtronix says it's 'the exact same hardware'- because that's what they see in the OS and it is the same. But there is perhaps something else new in their besides- maybe some of the gps hardware is new too. Not sure what, but must be something besides the usb device that has the sd card reader etc.

seriously good idea. They can probably get usb drives in bulk that they need for under $5 each.

Or stop with the nonsense of attempting the internet infrastructure themselves (or from a micky mouse provider) with their the download installer. Just pay amazon, google, akami (sp?), whoever to take care of the data delivery.

Do you know how we can downgrade? If we upgraded to a MY15 file on an MY14 by accident and now cannot access the media card or usb reader (won't read MY14 file now to downgrade through the media hub in the car because MY15 has different drivers for the media hub??)

You can install 14.25 and it will be all ok again.
