I did report to the dealer, they claimed the map worked as it should - of course they think a blank map is working - hey, the map came up - come on people.
Sirius traffic seems to work about the same way hit or miss really buggy sometimes it displays then you go back to it 5 seconds later and blank screen.

Re: Not getting weather map data

Looking at this from another point of view, since the map itself renders immediately when you select weather map in travel link, that lag in data loading might very well be a Sirius/XM issue. I know that I've had music cut out due to signal interruption on this and other vehicles. Maybe this is an issue that can only be resolved through Sirius/XM customer service. Now that's a scarey thought!

This. Even when it does work, what can you see? The damn icon is blocks most of what I want to see

Angry Re: Not getting weather map data

Agree, icon on weather radar map covers 3 counties and prevents seeing anything within about 20 miles. My wife has been looking for weather radar for many years, finds JGC 2014 map as useless, if it does show after 5 to 20+ minutes, icon covers local area and a momentary vehicle power off/on starts the wait for data all over again. I expected that she would love the built-in weather radar and that it would be enough to pay for the service after 1st year but find it unreliable (too long to display on start up - go back and reselect sometimes shows data if the map doesn't show data after 10+ minute drive) plus no way to minimize icon (certainly not needed as you cannot follow directions from map if icon covers most of the state (RI/MA/CT, not TX/LA). Unless they fix it to be more usable (common sense fixes), it is far from ready for release and should not be advertised as vehicle feature.

Re: Not getting weather map data

Yep, add me to the weather map issue. It takes 10 or 20 minutes (sometimes not at all) for the map to load. I noticed that I can turn on the storms (or warnings - not sure of the term as I am not near my Jeep to check) and it will show me the warning zones but not the actual radar.

I also found that going into something else and then back to the weather sometimes brings up the radar overlay but not usually. I also noticed (as others said) that if the clock in the map does not update then your radar won't either.

I would also like to zoom in more. Not real helpful when you need to see where the edge of a storm is. Pretty important when you live in tornado alley like me!

Or look to see if the folks heading toward you have their wipers on.

The weather map is one of those things I haven't tried yet. I still have a few years though.

LOL. Funny. But seriously, we were stuck in between two major storms. We were trying to stay ahead of the one behind us but not drive into the one in front of us and it was completely dark out so looking out the window didnt' help. I sped up and slowed down for about 5 hours staying in between these two storms and manage to miss a tornado hitting the highway about 20 miles in front of us by doing so. The Jeep radar didn't help much and we had to use our cell phones for more accurate data.

ACC worked great in torrential rain, by the way.

Re: Not getting weather map data

I've had the same issue with my weather not loading. I'll try the flipping between screens. I'll also let the dealer know when I take my truck in. I've ended up using my phone out of frustration....and it's faster.

Do you receive your warnings, I was told these are supposed to pop up on the screen. Live in the Arkansas and we get storm and tornado warnings but never had an alert on the screen?

I've noticed lately the weather and traffic data coming up much faster. Anyone else notice this?
