Re: Navigation System Quirks

Thanks for the post. How did you work out that the system uses Navteq maps?

Maybe WA maps are worse then other states. There are so many areas where the system advises "unverified area maps" (or words to effect) in areas that have been there 20 -30 years. Maybe that is part of the problem and why the unit avoids certain roads, because the maps in that area are unverified.

Re: Navigation System Quirks

I read about it on the mygig forum for our head units. Like any mapping, it will take time to iron the bugs out. VDO and Garmin are to expensive, so many makers are going for Navteq as their maps are cheaper.

Re: Navigation System Quirks

Yes but most source their maps from whereis including VDO.
The older the map the cheaper they are.

Re: Navigation System Quirks

You can report errors in Navteq maps to Navteq here: http://mapreporter.navteq.com

You find the place on the map and then report what the error is, like if there should be a road there, or if the cartography is wrong or if signs, bridges, POI's etc are wrong or if there is an Incorrect location or data, or a missing item etc

After that Navteq field analysts check the data with their The Navteq Maps car, but until they can get to it, the data stays the same, at least if you report it, it should get fixed sooner



"For more remote and rural areas, Navteq sources data from government-owned mapping company PSMA and local authorities."

Our old handheld TomTom didn't have any of these issues.

Are others having similar issues with JGC system?
Hi Swampy did you ever get this resolved? I am still fighting a losing battle with the dealer, the gps is absolute piece of #%@*.... Cannot can ant info on updates as yet.

Hi Gabs

I'll hit them up when I send the car in for it's 10k service. The Nav system really is very poor. The system simply defies logic and does not appear to recognise intersections or roads (major, not minor) that have been there for 20 years.

I' am not sure of my chances with the Jeep dealer but we shall see how it goes.

Re: Navigation System Quirks

This must be a problem for anyone not on the east coast, as the satnav for me has been fine. I have a portable satnav that also gets it wrong often with names/numbers or loactions. The main thing everyone needs to realise is that the maps are made by Navteq, not Jeep.

This is true that the maps are Navtech. However if you plan a route on the Navtech internet site, it recognises roads and intersections as it should. In the car, it does something different. Therfore Jeep has to sort this issue out with Navtech as to why our maps are so far out of date or why the Nav system interprets the data from Navtech as it does.

Either way it is Jeeps problem that they need to fix. Incidently my portable TOM TOM has none of those issues here in the West.

I spoke to someone at Navteq today and they basically told me that they only supply the database and if you can find the address in the the database the problem is with the system software and the logic it uses to get you there which seems to put the ball back in jeeps court and the Uconnect system. Simply updating the maps may not resolve our issues.Swampy to make things worse for me i had the gps dealer fitted and they supplied me with the older REP version not the factory RHP. The REP was discontinued Jan11 and there are no more system updates on the horizon. I am currently in discussions to have it replaced with the RHP but service and sales are handballing it to each other as no-one wants to pay for it and they are telling me they cannot get one. I knew I was paying over the odds for an integrated system but not for one that is outdated and not what should have come with the car.

Re: Navigation System Quirks

I agree Navteq has up to date maps but not on our Mygigs.

There is a forum on whirlpool how the map makers sell older maps cheep to some GPS manufactures.

I like my TOM TOM and the IPhone TOM TOM. Just like the integrated large touchscreen.

MYGIG with TOM TOM navigation like the eclipse radios.
