2015 8.4N Map update

Has anyone got any info on how to do a map update on JGC 8.4N map updates.
Spoke to FCA Customer Service and they sent me to Gramin.com/Chrysler & site does not match unit in vehicle and Garmin OEM Customer Support says not Garmin in in vehicle as not Unit ID under Settings

Re: 2015 8.4N Map update

I also own a 2015 WK2 and there are no updates available yet for US or Canada as far as I know.

I validated this by checking here:

Chrysler Group | Home | HERE

This is my first vehicle with in dash Nav and what I am noticing in comparison to my previous experiences with window mounted Garmin is there are no quarterly updates with the in dash units. I'm guessing that an update won't be available until at least 2016.

Re: 2015 8.4N Map update

Hi -
I just bought a new 2015 WK2 in December with the 8.4AN radio and asked the salesman how to update the nav system when new maps become available. I specifically asked (twice) if I had to purchase an update and was told, "No, these newer systems update themselves automatically." He also said, "The older radios required owners to purchase a disc to update the maps. You do not need to do that with the new radios."

I've only had the vehicle for a couple of weeks now, so I'm not quite sure how to check which map version is installed. Hopefully the salesman was right and the system will update itself when the new map updates roll out.

If I have to perform the updates manually, it would probably have to be through the USB flash drive port in the front center console. I do not have a CD or DVD player onboard, so obviously an update with a disc is not going to work.

As many salesman do he lied to you. You have to purchase the updates each and every year when they come out if you want the updated information. The updates are $150 per update. They are loaded through a usb drive that you purchase on line. If I were you I would go right back to that salesman and demand compensation as that will add up to several hundred dollars over time that you were lied to about. Not the first time that's happened car sales is often a slimy business. Good luck sorry to give the downer news

Re: 2015 8.4N Map update

See the link in Post #2. Put in your VIN. It will tell you if there's an update for yours. Fyi, there doesn't seem to have been an update yet for 2014 or 2015 vehicles.

And Silvermax04 is correct. You were misinformed. Hopefully not on purpose.

They put out the 2015 update last spring I think it was many of us with 2014s updated including me. there is an extensive thread on this that details the frustrations of the lagging map updates.

Re: 2015 8.4N Map update

Greetings,

Since the map database is from HERE, even if their was an update for the 2015 right now, most likely, it would be an update from late 2013 to early 2014 build dates. I would wait a couple of more months till the summer and determine then if you want to shell out $150.00.

As member Silvermax04 points out, the sticky thread in this forum will give you a nice history on the frustrations and stupidy that one faces with JGC updates.

Best for now.

I stand corrected. My WK2 build was November 2014, so I was speaking out of turn regarding prior builds. As of now there hasn't been a map update for mine.
