Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Just wondering when/if the NAV/GPS map updates come out. Are they done annually? Do we get some kind of notification when new ones are available? Is it a dealer installed thing or can you download it...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I'll ask them. When you find out how to do it yourself, that could be helpful info. However, you still have to then somehow clear the error codes I would think.
