2016 Map Update

How often do the maps update for uconnect? I know it's done by a third party, but I'm not fully grasping how the updates work. I think my software said 2013 was the most recent update. I'd be willing to pull the trigger if the 2016 map software was out.

Re: 2016 Map Update

for the 2014+ GC the 2015 map update came out in mid may of 2015. not to say that the 2016 update will be exactly the same time but I wouldn't think they would want to wait too much longer and still call it a 2016 update so hopefully soon but who knows

Re: 2016 Map Update

Updates have been coming about every two years. I updated in May of '15, and don't expect another update until spring of '17.

Re: 2016 Map Update

Greetings,

OP, if you have not read this thread already, this gives you a well document history of the map update status on dealing with the JGC:

2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

As other 2 distinguished members pointed out in the above posts, this gets down to the answer.

Best for now.

Re: 2016 Map Update

I have a quick question about the 2016 map update. My RHB has firmware 50.00.07 on it and the map update that I just got today came with 23.05.01. Do I still need to do the firmware update?

Re: 2016 Map Update

Just got a notice that they have released a new update, software and map data, for my 2011 with the 430N. Think I will try it.

Re: 2016 Map Update

Will be doing mine tomorrow. I got the notice and ordered my update. The firmware strikes me as odd.

Older 430N radios (2011-2012) need firmware update v33.02.01 to update the Garmin software. Then after applying the map file updates the radio can be updated to v50. Any future map updates require going back to v33.02.01 as the v50 firmware has a defect that blocks map updates.

So if you are currently at firmware v50, you will need to 'upgrade' to the older firmware to allow the map update, then locate your v50 disc and update again after the maps are updated.

Newer 430N radios (2013+) are even more of a nightmare....

Jeep (Chrysler) just mailed me a postcard or letter also about a map update being available.

I tossed it in the shred or recycle bin (can't seem to find it though).

$149 each time to update maps? When Garmin offers a $100 lifetime map update process for their devices? What a rip-off!

What auto manufacturer offers lifetime let alone 1 map update for every vehicle they produce? 0

The Garmins, Tom Toms and whoever else makes those portable things has to include free updates to get you to buy it.
