I have a 2013 JKU and my firmware was at 50.00.7. I was able to burn the 33 Firmware to a CD and it downgraded no problem at all.
I tried putting 2014.40 and the JCV on a DVD but it literally sat at reading for about 5 hours. I had to shut down the jeep a few times and when I started it back up it was right back to the reading screen.
When I turned it off for a good 10 minutes it went back to booting normal with firmware 33.x
I am going to try with a sandisk usb as that seems to be the winner for other people.
With the update and jcv on a thumb drive how long should it actually take to do the update and with a brand new jeep should I be able to leave it on ACC mode and now have the it fully turned on to complete the update and jcv?
I can not get the Engineer/Development mode to work on 55x or 33x Firmware and I tried multiple spots in the circle. I would tap and hold for 10-15 seconds. What should happen if it does work? Does it open a new page by itself or does it ask you to change to Engineer mode? Thanks for any help!

|JBB609||any word on a new 60.00 version coming up ? (not the NAV update)|

I have found some posts on other threads that 43.x.x was the version that gave the black screens. I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks for the info nubby.
I ended up downgrading to 33 and the first time it ran, gave me a message that it had new software for the NAV part, and I hit Yes to install it, but got a PND did not update error.
I re-ran the 33 disc again and this time when I hit YES on the Nav software update, it did update the Garmin to the Black theme. Then I re-installed the 55 update but cant get the PND to update like my previous radio.
See this thread - Post 22 for pictures: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/20...-206676-2.html
I believe what happend is I had a late model RHB (bought in 2013) and had the graphics in the second and fourth picture. I'm guessing the dealer replaced my readio with one from the early 2012 or 2011 version that has graphics like in picture one and three. As much as I thought I would like the older graphics, they actually drive me insane and I prefer what was on my original 2013 RHB radio.
I'm guessing mine will come down to a battle with the dealership that replaced my radio.

I have upgraded and downgraded several times and installed several map updates. The Nav has always been the same look (blue). It never changed to black.

|Gewch||I think I will try re-burning 33 and 50 using the slowest setting and re-running the downgrade.|

Hoping someone can help me out...
My new HU came with version 23. I asked the dealer to update it, but he insisted that there are NO updates for my Year with this radio (this is after 2 different tries to get him to update it). Figured he had no clue so I would just do it at home with the many ISOs out there.
First thing - updated the maps without problems by following directions in this thread. Read that it is possible to go from 23 -> 50, so popped in the 50 update disc and let it run. When it got done and 50.00.07 was installed, all of the interfaces changed back to the black/green EXCEPT for the Garmin Navigation (still looks like it did at 23). Scratched my head for a few and thought maybe I skipped a step.
Found and burned the 33 update and downgraded the radio (all interfaces then looked blue like they did on the 23). After verifying 33, I put the 50 update disc back in with no success (all other modules look black/green except for the Garmin nav interface - still the blue).
This all started because my head unit was bad - dealer replaced it with a refurb (still had the previous owners home address etc...it had software version 23 and old maps). When I insisted there was an update - they refused to check any more...
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Official Map Did Not Work
Responding to my own post...
Well I bought the "official" 2014 Navteq map update for $150 that Navteq said would work on my 430N. Tried installing it on my 2013 JKU with Firmware version 33.
Loaded the disk and it said it found a newer map and asked if I wanted to update the maps. I said "yes". Then it said it would overwright my existing map and might take 2 hours and was that O.K. I said "yes". It then took about 2 hours to load. When done, it reported that the map was loaded.
HOWEVER, when I tried to display the map, navigate, or do anything with navigation, it said that there was no map available... not even my original map. As far as I can tell, the map installation process did not "unlock" the map. So while the new map was was loaded, it was not unlocked, and could not be used. Turns out that as part of the map install, it is supposed to provide me with some Serial Number information and together with a code on the CD, I am supposed to get an unlock code to enter before it does the installation. But it did not show me the Serial Number information, or ask me to enter the unlock code. It just installed the map, but provided no way to unlock it.
Soooo, don't load the "official" 2014 map update on your 2013 Jeep until it reported as working and is being supported by Garmin and Navteq.

I have been debating about purchasing a 430N, but i want to load topo maps onto it.
I will be attempting to create a map file to load onto it.
Does anyone in canada(sorry i only have canada topo) happen to want to try a custom map load with me ?
PM me if interested.

|Curtisrayc||Just installed 2014.40. Works great!|

Checking map update
Could anyone tell me how to see if 2014.40 actually installed?

|membrain||I'm thinking about starting a new thread for those of us that can't make the update work...|

|w4rmk||You could probably go crazy trying to keep up with every map update, seems like once a year is probably enough.|
|02-25-2014 08:59 AM|
|nubby105||Anyone try 2014.40 yet?|

Hi - I just wanted to confirm that the bug does exist on the $150.00 NavTEQ install as well, my Jeep buddy bought last week to update his wife's RHB he bought off that auction site and had to downgrade to 33.xx firmware, update map then went back to 50xx firmware.
Also, wanted to say Thank You!!! -- I just bought my 2013 Gecko Rubicon back on 1/19/2014 -w- 800 miles and I bought a used RHB unit after reading these forums to make sure it was PnP, upgraded my firmware to 50.xx.....2 weeks later found this thread and updated my maps for free (downgraded firmware and did the routine)
Loving my new Jeep, we just went for an Osceola forest trail ride last weekend. Two buddies @ work have 2013/2014 Rubicons. I kept my 94 Toyota Supra too though :O)

That's why I didn't want a nav system. I had no choice, cuz it was in the only manual trans JKU I could find.
We have a Honda Odyssey Touring w/ Nav... and maps for that were $199. At least they got smart(er) and knocked it down to $99.
But this at the same time you could buy a Garmin, with better features, transportable, and lifetime maps for what you pay for an update.
And we pay $1k for the privelege of a $150 annual fee if we wanna keep current.
That just aint right.

New 2014 "official" Map software released
To this point, this thread seems to be dealing only with loading 2014 Garmin maps onto our 430N units. Of course, this is not the way that Jeep and NAVTEQ intended.
A new 2014 map file is now for sale for 430N units. This is the "official" map file from NAVTEQ for factory Jeep installs, and has a very official price of $149.00. Expensive, but should install and work with no problems or software engineering required. As of today, the web site says there is no update for the 2013 Wrangler, but I called them and they said the web site is in error, and the update will work for the 2013.

|dvitous||Well.. we'll see what happens. Just dropped 50.00 on. Headed out in a few.|
|02-15-2014 01:30 PM|
|JSingr||I'm guessing it worked. Upgraded to 2010.40 but received an error at end. checked maps it is the latest and went into engineering mode and JCV is the latest. ran a simulator and JCV works as well.|
|02-14-2014 08:16 PM|
Well... I downloaded a different 2014.40 file, and when I put it in... it told me that it was an older(?) version of the maps, and did I want to revert. So maybe it did work, and the update just doesn't change file dates?
Still can't find a proper version. I think I found where the other poster was in the diagnostic menu, but what displays looks like map regions, and not a version header.
|02-14-2014 06:45 PM|
Well... it all looked good for me til the end.
Trying 2014.40 w/ D3060130A.JCV.
Showed 2 files to update... cranked through. Got the PCN Updated message, followed by "Maps Failed to Update".
I can't see a version anywhere - but the file dates on my existing gmmapprom file is like 2010? I dunno.. but its old.
I think the JCV file actually did update though.
Looking for another d/l of 2014.40 before trying again.
|02-12-2014 10:29 AM|
I had to downgrade the radio firmware back to 33 then reload the map upgrade with the JCV file, then upgrade the firmware back to 50.
It would not update only the JCV file.
All good now and works great.
Thanks to all who post, it really helps to review the posts to determine what other problems and solutions others have been thru.
|02-10-2014 08:22 PM|
how do I check exactly what maps on I have on the 430n now ?
I went in the about section but I dont know what to look for and I cant tell which map it is by looking there so far
