Angry 2015 Overland with UCONNECT® 8.4AN_RJ4

Hi All,

can anyone tell me why we don't have access for the uconnect via mobile? how we can get updates for maps? and how we can change the uconnect from RJ4 to RA4?

Who is "we"? It is a good idea to let people know what country you;re from, as you don't have that set in your profile details.
Why do you want to switch from RJ4 to RA4, for mobile hotspot and remote access?
They are completely different units, with different hardware.

You are clearly in an export market, the map updates are taking care of by your local distribution arm.

Thanks for your reply, yes you're correct the car in GCC -export market but why in export market such features are disabled?? It is really disappointed!!!

Without such features the Uconnect is similar to any market screen you install in your car!!!

The hardware is different, there is no Sierra Wireless card in it. I can only guess it is because the US still uses many old frequencies, and that is what Uconnect is running from. But that is pure speculation on my behalf.
If you changed it to RA4, then you would end up with US maps, so probably not a good option for you.
You can unlock a few things with the RAX jailbreak, but you won’t get the wireless connection. And looking at what the US pays for it, why the hell would you, crazy expensive.

Thanks again SNUKE for your feedback, other thing I would like to ask if you can help me.

In the uconnect setting screen I don't see option where you can enable/disable the horn sound with door lock!! Is this also part of the export market options as I don't know how to get the horn sound when I lock my car!!

The horn with door lock doesn't work in GCC models. Regarding maps is like SNUKE said. You have to go to the dealer ... cost around AED 1200
