U Connect 8.4

Any chance of an upgrade to the 2013 GCOS 730N to the 8.4? Only thing holding me back from the Summit are the reviews I've read that pan the current system. Also, the current system is weak compared to the upgraded my ford touch system.

Re: U Connect 8.4

i think not.

the 8.4n are built from panasonic, the RHR are built from Harmann Becker.

i know that Harmann Becker are working on the new Generation Multimedia Units for Chrysler LCC

Re: U Connect 8.4

Is the firmware in our U Connect systems easily upgradeable? I mean is it something we can download, put on a key drive and update it ourselves, or does it have to go to the dealer for that?

I just found this site yesterday: http://mofv.com/MyGIG/

Looks like you can download the disc images for the updates and apply them yourself.

That site, like Elvis, is dead. The most recent post was last March. It never even mentioned the RHR.

Re: U Connect 8.4

Not quite dead, but apparently the Chrysler folks didn't appreciate HB actually providing updates and bug fixes to customers, although Chrysler rarely if ever did. I know from experience talking to dealers who were clueless about the MyGig or that there were not just map updates available... they'd just replace the entire unit.

With the release of the RHR, the direct to end user updates from HB apparently have been shut off, my guess is it was by Chrysler's direction. Still plenty of useful information there, it's just not the goldmine of updates it used to be.

Still the best site I know of for MyGig info, and Elvis Costello is alive and well.
