Greetings,

As far as I know, the only thing you can upgrade is the map database and possible software bugs.

For the maps goto HERE (formally know as NAVTEQ):Update Your Chrysler Group Uconnect Navigation System Map | Navigation.com

As for now new features, they do not do that. Since you have a 2012 and you are looking for much better GPS service, then consider an aftermarket headunit.

Hope this helps.

Best for now.

Re: Update factory GPS (Garmin)??

Map updates must be purchased from NAVTEQ now know as HERE per 1st's comments. The most current MAP version may also require you to update your firmware...if so, it will be included in the package with the Maps DVD. The cost is $149. The update is system specific, so you must look at the code in the lower, right corner of your radio and use that information to navigate to the correct place on the map provider's website.
