Bad head unit?

I took my 2019 Moab in to the Jeep dealership for my first oil change at 4000 miles. When it was ready the service writer said they updated by head unit computer. I thanked them and left. I realized that I couldnít get my phone to pair and was missing apps including navigation so I came back. The service manager took it back saying it would just take a few minutes. An hour later I saw him and asked about my Jeep. He looked around and pointed outside saying where it was. This time I didnít leave the lot and found that I had no navigation and phone wouldnít pair. He said the first piece of equipment they used to update was broken and didnít work and the second one did but I must have a bad head unit. They have to keep my vehicle and hook it up with Star as the head unit might be bad. Everything worked fine before they decided to update my computer. They cannot let my vehicle leave the lot once they pull the unit out of the dash. I said order a new unit and I will bring it back in to have the old unit replaced. I was told they canít let it go with a bad head unit. The service writer was great and they gave me a stripped down Jeep to drive. I donít understand why they have to keep my vehicle and all they say is that is a Chryslerís decision. I call BS. I offered to pay for overnight shipping as well. I have had numerous cars during my 76 years of life and have never run in to this type of situation as my Jeep runs fine just no phone and missing apps.
In addition, I was advised that it could take a week or more. Maybe ďJeep CaresĒ can explain.

wait, what? They can't let you drive your own vehicle off the lot with the stereo removed? That is the most absurd thing I ever heard!

OK I get that more and more stuff gets integrated to the "info-tainment center", but did they really integrate it so much that the vehicle is unsafe to drive or inoperable???

very strange.
