Uconnect Software Upgrade

I searched and didn't see anybody who mentioned this disc.

I received it in the mail and upgraded and really don't notice a difference yet (better graphics, faster loading as they mention).

Does anybody else see a difference?

We have a 430n that also prompted for an update. Can you take it into the dealership and have them update it if you have a warranty?

This disc says 33.01.23 Garmin 3.0 on it, which it loaded on the Jeep.

My old RHB software was 33.00.xx.

It went through a process of updating the baseline data files, and then the application software.

The package says improved navigation graphics, quicker GPS signal acquisition, and shorter processing times. Nothing to do with map updates, etc.

I'll test it more today.

Odd. I have a 2012 with the 430n. Never received a disc. Maybe I'll call the dealer.

I have read on this forum that 2013 owners with 430n's have stated that their graphics are not as good as the 2012's. I'm not going to update until I hear that the graphics don't change.

I got one in the mail yesterday also. I have a 2012 JKU.

It does mention that the update includes 'better graphics'.

The nav screen definition on my '13 430n is not good. My basic Garmin Nuvi is much better and I would love to be able to change it to the same as the Nuvi. If this does that... I'm all over it. I haven't gotten anything in the mail so I'll go by the dealer and see if they know anything about this. I'll be surprised if they do.

We got our disc in the mail yesterday. Scared to try to update it.

opps. Your 2013 had a different SW version on it and with this disc (which is for 2012 vehicles) you went backwards. What color was your screen before? What SW version is now on the radio (look into the menu settings)

I loaded the 33.01.23 update a few weeks ago and have been running it since. I see no difference in anything. I just downloaded it from the internet. I also updated my Gracenotes.

Yeah I messed up... I talked to Uconnect on the phone and I have to take it to the dealer to get it fixed.. They said I'm not the first one to do it .. I guess it pays to read the directions first..

I haven't seen an update yet. I did just get the message that my maps are a year old... and where to go to BUY them.

Precisely the reason I didn't want Nav... but it was on the only model available with the rest of the specs I wanted.

Haven't looked at the price yet... but if it's anything like my Honda Odyssey... it'll cost about the same as a new Garmin with LIFETIME map updates

We have a 2012 and my system graphics already look like what they say are new, so I wonder what the deal is. If it might help bluetooth streaming from my iPhone 5, which is always glitchy I'll gladly do it.

I checked the other day for a map update and it sucks because I can't see what roads are on it from the Navteq site. My area is constantly expanding and there's definitely no point paying $150 if it's not 100% up to date, but since we regularly drive on a 20 mile toll road that is brand new it would be nice. It is really funny to drive on it with the navigation going through nothing with neighborhoods on each side so it tries to send you through there.

I also received the disc in the mail today. Anyone know if the update will cause any problems with MyGig Lockpick V5?

Warning! Warning! Warning!

So I got the Complimentary Software Upgrade from Chrysler and attempted to update my 430N RHB in my 2012 Wrangler Build Date 09/15/2011. After following all the steps in the install instructions, I got to the enter security code section and did as instructed and entered code "0000". I got the message "Incorrect Code Try Again". I reentered the code twice more, same message then...Security lockout and message to wait 30 minutes on screen.

Called Uconnect customer service...Responce, "Oh yeah, this happens. You will have to take your vehicle to the dealer".

Great.

Despite hopes, same message of security lockout persisted way past 30 minutes. Disk would not eject or unit respond to command to eject disk. I pulled the ground to battery and reattached after about 10 minutes. The radio was now in off position with time only displayed . I successfully ejected the disk prior to pushing the nav power on button. Unit booted upon pushing the start button after the disk was removed with no further security lockout screen. System data showed software had updated to 33.01.23. Unit seems to be fine now.

Consider yourselves warned. You may be headed for a dealer rescue from the software update experience. I would suggest if you get an incorrect security code message after entering the 0000 as instructed once you DO NOT reenter the code but try to eject the disk before the unit locks up from an incorrect code entry time out from too many trys. Good luck out there!

It shouldn't have any effect on the Lockpick

when you performed the update, was the ignition in the "acc" or "on" mode?

Hi xsdbs! I am pretty sure it was in the acc mode. One click forward. No USB device present although I permanently have an iPhone 4S cord attached to the USB port in the center console.

Interesting because the security screen is specifically shown in the installation instructions and the directions state to enter "0000" at this screen.
