Re: Nav update

Map updates for the GC at $149 (does not depend on system, both use Navtec maps, link is below) is not worth the cost. Some members have updated their 2011 Maps to the most recent update, and the concensus is not worth the high cost for extremely little value. In a 2012 GC, you should already have the latest version available. I would wait at least another year or two.

I have a portable Garmin with lifetime maps and regularly check when I have issues with my 2012 GC Nav Maps, and have never found the most recent maps to be any different/better. Most of the maps are at least 1-2 years out of date on the day they are issued, in my opinion.

The forum search function works great to check before posting, this has been covered a number of times recently.

Re: Nav update

I did realize they both used the Navtec maps, but didn't know the Garmin https://www.garmin.com/chrysler/ update would work with the 730N

Re: Nav update

Thanks Lingohocken. It make sense that the RHB (Garmin Navigation) unit would use the Garmin Map update.

Justal13, Are you certain the Garmin Map Update link you provided would work with the 730N ???

Re: Nav update

If you go to https://www.garmin.com/chrysler/ and enter 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it takes you to a page that starts:
This map update is compatible with the RHB Radio only.

Re: Nav update

I never said it did. The OP did not say which system they had, so I provided the only current active links for 2011-12 GC Nav updates. Bottom line, it is unnecessary to do any Nav updates for a 2011-12 regardless. A total waste of money for little or no gain.

Re: Nav update

The nav outfits allow users to provide corrections and updates, but you have to wonder whether they really do much with information from the general public.

Has anybody participated in this type of effort, and if so have you sensed that they've actually incorporated your data in their annual refreshes?

Okay, now I get it.
