2013 Nav Maps Aust
 
Hi Everyone,

I've tried to do a search on 2013 (or even 2012) map updates for Australia, but have come up fruitless.

Is anyone able to help (sox?) with where/how to get updated maps for my Jeep? as they're starting to get out of date, and is becoming quite frustrating.

Thank you,

The current Australian maps are borderline useless, especially here in the West.

The good news is that new maps are almost ready to go, other than some technical glitch with Navteq and VIN numbers (or something similar). I would say that we should have them in a week or two.

If you haven't done before, phone Jeep Help line, tell them that the Nav system is hopeless and ask for a case number. That way you will be notified when they are available.

Thanks Swampy!

So you know how we go about getting the new maps? from dealer or direct from navteq?

They will have to be from the dealer only. There is evidently still an issue with VINnos so the maps haven't been released yet.

I saw an email yesterday where Jeep Aus are saying that the VIN issue has now been resolved. However, there is still no report of a 2013 map release.
Unfortunately, Jeep Aus have an agreement with Navteq where maps will only be released via delaers. This obviously means a price gouge.

I was told two weeks about 3 weeks ago, so I'm not holding my breath. I wont be handing over any cash for this upgrade.

Using the virtual JEEP AUST calender
1 Week .........= 1 week + Infinity
2 Weeks........ = 2 weeks + never
> 2 weeks..... = Try a different manufacturer

Agreed - sounds like it will never happen!!

Does this mean when we finally get our 2014 cars the maps in them will be useless /out of date??

Most probably.
Worthwhile asking the dealer the version of the maps.

No, you will be fine. The 14 has an upgraded Nav system that is the same as the new Chrysler 300C. When I checked those maps in the car, all worked fine.
