I know its a general practice for map makers to title the map updates with the current calander year and not the actual map data year but as that gap seems to be growing its becoming increasingly misleading. 2013Q4 maps released 2015Q2 and advertised and sold on the HERE website as 2015 maps. That might make a good consumer reports article title. Interestingly the box that arrives appears not to have any version on it at all.

So if they are having map issues and the best thing they can get out the door is a year and a half old, the answer should of been dont charge $150 for it issue it free. Get your shit together and then start charging though the price is still ridiculous in this day and age.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

If everyone's map is 2013 data, then I won't open mine and will return it for a refund.

I have already put on 48,000 miles from Maine to Florida to Colorado and Arizona on my 14 JGC. I want maps, speed limits, and points of interest that are reasonably up-to-date. I will continue to use my Garmin with data less than 6 months old.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

When Garmin or Google updates their maps, how current is their data? I always wondered why the car manufacturers didn't link up with one of them.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I am quite sure that HERE provides the maps for Garmin. Maine changed all their interstate speed limits in early 2014. They were in the Garmin map update within 6-9 months. I have submitted Garmin map corrections to HERE in the past. It has taken 6-12 months to appear in the Garmin because HERE has to verify them all. That makes sense. However, I expect all verified map data to appear in the latest Garmin release and the latest Garmin release is labelled 2015.40. If the Jeep map is from 2013Q2 then Maine's new interstate speed limits, new Central Maine hospital, and it's Interstate exit won't be in it.

Google - I thought they were doing their own.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

Based on several things, it appears to me that the issue is with Chrysler/Jeep.
1 - This map update appears to be OLD but I know HERE has more up-to-date data and maps than 2013-Q2. So, why didn't the latest maps get issued to us? I suspect there is a Chrysler problem - lack of people to quickly adapt to new roads, interchanges, junctions, and POI - lack of Nav System capability (memory/processor speed?)
2 - Chrysler and HERE have stated repeatedly that map updates are issued every 12-18 months (HERE has no incentive to delay map updates; Garmin gets 3-4 per year). Why the long delay since the original Oct 2014 schedule?
3 - HERE told me recently that they were waiting for Chrysler to release the update.
4 - Remember, Chrysler doesn't make the GPS system either. The last I knew, it was Harman Kardon. So now there is another party in the game.
5 - Chrysler/Jeep has never taken responsibility for map updates. They don't communicate with the customer at all.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

It could be possible, that they are not available again, now until May26th, because they realized they messed up and did not release a more current version, and are making a new release before May 26th.

That is just a guess

Good catch hhudsonn. "This product will be available May 26th. Please check back with us at that time - thank you!" I hadn't looked back at the site. I suspect they are out of USB sticks. I cannot imagine that they could get a newer map out in 5 days. Seems to be a surprise at every turn.

I was thinking along the lines that they have it already, but released and older version that they already had. And now they just have to get them put on USBs.

But its all speculation.

Will be curious to see if the new batch comes out with different build dates.

I honestly expected the build dates to say May of 2015, not June of 2014.

But they could also, just change the dates and send the same software and we would not know, lol.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I guess I'll have to look at this as a learning experience. This update is basically one update (12-18 months) behind what has been the industry median update interval.
Uconnect probably will not be my nav choice in the future.

My friends 2015 JGC Summit has 2013 Q2 maps,
my 2014 Summit are 2012 Q4,
so you gain 2 QUARTERS of sweet dig all over the 2015 new purchase JGC and $150 plus bucks deducted from your bank account.

Not Worth it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

Last night, I emailed HERE and asked them if the map update I just ordered contains the same roads as my recently updated Garmin. I specifically asked if it contains the Maine speed limits, new interstate exit and new hospital updated in my Garmin in Feb 2015.
