The instructions are spread out in this thread.

Basically, you need to download the .ISO files (an .ISO file is kind of like a .ZIP file) one for the firmware and the other for Gracenotes. Burn each .ISO file into a DVD-R disk on your PC, and then load them one at a time into your 730N. It takes about 1/2 an hour for each to complete their update.

For the maps, you need to buy that since each copy sold is VIN locked.

Av8tor2 Just an FYI: I picked up my JKHR yesterday with the 730N:

Application: 2.600 Gracenotes: 6168

10Rubicon Hello forum friends. I purchased the 2015 Jeep Chrysler navigation map update from HERE customer services center for my 2013 Rubicon. It has the radio software update RHR version 2.600 and the navigation map update for Uconnect. I had to provide my VIN when ordering and I had to use a password provided by HERE when installing. The installation was flawless. Does anyone know if I can resell this disc set or is it locked to my vehicle with the VIN and password?

JeepFan95 I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post my question but...

I can't get my 730N to display the list of all songs. I'm currently stuck in the My Favorites folder. If I try to access the full song directory nothing comes on the screen and it disables the touch screen and buttons on the back of the steering wheel for about 2 minutes. I can't seem to get it out of this spot. I'm hoping someone else has had a similar issue and can over up a solution so that I don't have to take it into the dealer.

I have a feeling that even if Chrysler was somehow able to "link" the 730N to your own VIN, Navteq will always assume you have a 2014 730N and only offer you map updates for one of those (for which, there aren't any yet).
The person I dealt with locally is checking his files to see if he has the original VIN information. If he does, I plan to provide it to the dealership to see if that will help in changing the association to the old VIN to my VIN. And if nothing can be done, then yes, I can always keep the old VIN for software and map updates. But using the old VIN does not fix my issue.

Used 730N RHR in new Jeep Wrangler

I just purchased a used 730N RHR unit and mopar microphone for my 2014 Jeep Wrangler to replace the 130 radio. It was pulled from a 2012 Wrangler. I entered the security code and it works like a charm.

However, as I've seen from some posts, that I can't download the lastest software updates or order the new Navteq maps as it asks for a VIN, which in my vehicle is the old radio.

I went to my dealership last evening to have the unit associated under my VIN but they are unable to do this for a used unit. They are keeping this as an open ticket and is talking to Chrysler to figure out how to make this update.

Given that this shouldn't be an unusual task (people updating for newer aftermarket units and no longer needing the older factory unit), what can be done to allow the unit to be assigned to my VIN?

Thanks!

phansson Here is a little new information about my volume knob...dealer replaced the radio last week. So I guess it wasn't 2.6 after all...the new radio has 2.6 on it from the factory....
10-16-2014 03:04 PM
Resist My new Jeep 730n Application is 2.6, Gracenotes is 4118. I see others have a later Gracenotes.

Same as previously mentioned I almost always use the steering wheel controls, but I have never seen a problem with the HU controls. The wife is usually turning down the music via the HU as I am turning it up by the steering wheel. ;-)

I wish I could disable the HU controls....

There was a 2.4, but for the RER not our RHR radio.

I always use the steering wheel controls (use to such for years on my other vehicle). I will have to check the knob on the radio the first chance I get.

From my recollection, or at least what I upgraded to/from, the recent revisions went like this:

2.136 -> 2.184 ->2.6

Now I did see a 2.140 that oddly was between the 2.184 and 2.6, not what you would expect. I never installed this version as it was not clear it was for our RHR radios.

EDIT:

I found a list of all of the versions of software up to 2.126, talk about screwed up ordering...

1.908 -> 2.110 -> 2.116 -> 2.120 -> 2.169 ->2.126

I am not sure if there was anything between 2.126 and 2.136. I have been happy with 2.6 so far.

Jetjocchris I have the 730 N and I have the trip log turned on so it shows my route history in "blue". Is there a way to clear the route history...?? It seems like I can only turn it on and off and when I turn it on it always shows the old routes...

Thanks

I really don't use my Rubi X as an iPod on wheels, so I can only talk about my phone, and it connects reliably. I haven't had a single failure-to-connect since upgrading to 2.6. Though, previously, I think it only ever failed to connect twice, and I had to manually-by-voice-command connect.

Is there a way to change the colors? I would prefer blacks/greys over the terrible blue and light blue colors. My wife's 430 just looks better IMO.

I was only in the Jeep for about 20 minutes this morning and I was listening to the radio. I'll have to listen to the iPhone on the way home and see what comes up. Funnily enough, I still haven't loaded any songs on to my hard drive. Perhaps I'll do that tonight.

Boothill YOUTUBE has been my bestest friend for learning how to use my 730N.

Scale, I belive the circumference of the little blue circle (or is it yellow?) with the arrow in the middle determines scale....I think.

None that I have found. Possibly the firmware is just bug fixes, and we'll not have to worry anymore about tripping over one.
