Convert from Uconnect 8.4 RA3 to RA4
 
Hey guys well the title says all...

I have a JGC 14 Laredo model with the 8.4 inch display and in the Uconnect update part says its the RA3 model but i cant see the utility of the 8.4 inch display if i don't have the GPS on it... so i want to know if its possible to convert from the RA3 model to the RA4 with the GPS.

Cheers from Chile

you cant replace the radio as far as I understand. they are tied to the vin... but RA3 can be upgraded to have GPS. The dealer can do it (generally costs about $600)

Thanks for the answers. I called my local dealer today and he told that they can do it for no cost because its a new unit so they will make it as warranty so i might take it to the dealer on friday.


Thanks again!

happy for you to get navigation...that's how it should be!......Still I have to ask the question .....How is it that the ROW gets a Navigation 'activation' option for their RA3/RJ3 Radio's but Australia does not !

Hi guys... bad news went to the dealer they said that there was no way to put GPS on my RA3 radio they said that if i put like some software for the RA4 like the update for uconnect which includes the GPS it may cause total death of my equipment with no way they even said that the Overland's are not equipped with GPS just that they have seen one Overland and the GPS was a complete mess but i dont have further information.

Thanks folks!

Thats bs. Any of the Ra3 radios can be upgraded to navigation. Call a different dealer.
