NOTE - I'm assuming this failed because I was coming from . If this approach does not work for you, you may need to contact a dealer.
The maps that Here/Garmin would like me to purchase for $150 $30 shipping are several versions old, and too many 2013 RHB owners are having issues installing them. As some folks have already found out, the later versions of the RHB (2013 as far as I've read) are having issues with map updates.
I wanted to compile some notes from my experiences for anyone who may be using the 2013 version of the RHB and are trying to upgrade their maps. In one instance I had seen on a Chrysler forum, a 2013 user found that the GMA file for the file is required for the map to actually load.
Also is there any images or videos out there that show what the black theme looks like?
I am curiouos to know if the icons and things are nicer while I am at updating the maps.
I think this is the critical step - getting to version 3.0. So there you have it RHB owners - finally past 2014.40! I tried the follow the instructions unfortunately no go on my end and it has been pretty frustrating because I have been trying to update mine since May.
This time the Garmin update will succeed and your system will be at version 3.0. You can verify by going into Nav-About and viewing Software Version in the upper right corner. You'll then get a message that the maps failed to update, but if you actually check the maps in Nav-Info the update took.
Hello I stumbled accross this post as I was looking for information on updating my 2012 Jeep JKUR to the newer maps.
I have read in this thread that I may be able to update the firmware in order to have a black and not blue user interface.
If your RHB is eligible for an update through that web site, they will also send you a system software update. But playing safe, I copied all these files onto my USB stick. I don't know if this ultimately mattered, and I don't want to spend another 2hrs testing with just the base files to find out, but I did and it worked and I'm not messing with it now. I have tried all these steps with my Jeep being in ACC, run with it on and none of those combinations seemed to work.
It's a new firmware version that I haven't seen anywhere before - . If someone wants to try and that works for them, yay. When I click on "About" it reads: Model: RHB13 Software version 4.07 Dealer locator: 2.00 Audio: 2.0 Text: 4.07 GPS 4.15.02 and when the big logo comes up Copyright shows from 2012 to 2013 so I know there is an update out there somewhere but when I put my VIN on garmin.com/Chrysler it says that my maps are up to date?!
I already have the file however the package I downloaded did not have a jcv file.
