Successful install of code for a 2015 JGC Laredo 4x4

Hello All,
I am from Down Under- Australia and own a JGC MY15 Laredo Diesel💪
This to help anyone interested in activating the GPS in their JGC Laredo with the 8.4 U connect Radio
I have only yesterday activated my GPS and it is Awesome-just works like the original in the Limited models with the second display on your speedometer screen👍

The activation code is available on EBay for AUD $525 and the seller is genuine-
mrcasidy
I shall post the link here asap

Enjoy exclusifs

Hi I am looking to do this and have contacted the ebay seller. But while I wait for his reply can you tell me when these maps were last updated? How do you get these updates? Do you have to pay for them? Are there any functionality differences between the GC Limited GPS and the Laredo GPS activated or you get all the features in it?

good onya ajaz. mrcassidy on ebay is a fantastic honest, and very helpful seller. I would even go as far to say, his prices are likely cheaper, as he is charging 500 ~ AUD, where as i beleive in the US its close to 550~ $ plus.
The maps are updated as per the FW you get through UCONNECT. There is no way to " pay " for these updates, you just hope they update the FW for the uconnect sys. that came with your car. The only differences (b/w the laredo (with 8.4 uconnect) and limited/ ( factory enabled mapping) i know of ( or members have explained) is the 3D landmarks, elevation data and some form of "estimation" of distance travelled when out of GPS range. The later feature, i have yet to experiecnce, as no matter where my car is, it still approximates where and how i am travelling ( if that makes sense).

Hmm, pay some guy on ebay $550 US or pay the dealer $595 ?

No disrespect intended but I think I would just get the dealer to do it. If your dealer doesn't suck, they won't charge you anything else to unlock the radio. It virtually takes less than 10 minutes. Plus the Nav sales code gets added to your vin for you can get the correct updates later on. OTA updates are coming for the 8.4 radios, they have started the roll out on the west coast.
