Hi Guys,
Had the 2015 limited at the dealer today getting checked over and updated (an outstanding recall came up). They cleared some codes, updated the TCM software but said there was no update for the uconnect.
We have the original 14.29.9, the jeep site says there is no update when I put in the vin and the dealer said there was no update when checked with the Jeep software.
I have seen a lot of talk about newer versions on here, how do I get it.?

Hi
Does seem like an old version. What UConnect model do you have?

I'm very new to Jeeps. Here is the info I read in the Jeep TSB

TSB 08-016-18 REV.A
Radio Definitions

RG3 - Uconnect 8.4 AM/FM/DAB/BT/VOICE

RG4 - Uconnect 8.4AN AM/FM/DAB/BT/NAV/VOICE

RJ3 - Uconnect 8.4 AM/FM/BT

RJ4 - Uconnect 8.4N AM/FM/BT/NAV



appropriate software level for each region / radio type.



**17.46.01 - LX, WK or KL with RG3 or RG4 radios, in EMEA. **

16.16.13 - LA, LX, LD, KL, ZD, DS, DJ, D2, DX, WK, W3, W2 or WD with RG3 or RG4 radios, in LATAM, APAC and Mexico.

**17.43.01 - All vehicles with RJ3 or RJ4 radios. **


Hope that helps.

Hi Guys

I managed to get a download of the latest uconnect from their website

But not 100% sure if its compatible here in Australia because of the NAFTA at the end?

UCONNECT_8.4A_RA3_17.43.01_MY15_NAFTA.zip

Currently have a 04/2016 Cherokee KL Latitude running 14.29.9 so would love to get upgraded

Thanks

Adam

Hi Guys

Thanks for the reply, after some research i discover the NAFTA was for America

I also discover i have a RJ4 unit, so i believe the below update i have obtained will work on my car? Just cant find out what the ROW at the end stands for?

UCONNECT_8.4AN_RJ4_17.43.01_MY15_ROW.zip

Thanks

Adam

I got the latest APAC update from Sox's site and installed it last week.
Worked fine.

File was called UCONNECT_8.4AN_RJ4_17.43.01_MY15_ROW.zip as above

The ROW stands for Rest Of World.

ROW means Rest Of the World. Yes that is the exact same file I installed for my RJ4 radio. Have lots of patience it takes about one hour, do not open doors when updating. Where you downloaded the file it also has a link for the installation instructions.


OOps Madkaw beat me.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the help, i have just performed the upgrade and all went well.

It took about 55 minutes coming from v14.29.9 to v17.43.01

Can't really see much difference except the apps button at the bottom - wonder if you can actually install more apps to the device?

Cheers

Adam

Hey guys i have recently purchased a Jeep cherokee and looking to upgrade the Uconnect to the latest version - i had a Jeep dealership advise me a couple weeks ago there was no new version available

My current version is 14.29.9


by reading the post on this thread it appears the dealership is incorrect

i have tried the https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/software-update.html website it is telling me i have the latest version however you guys are stating newer versions are available.

The above post references to "SOX''s site" can you please provide further information on site or a link as i have been unable to locate this site.

Thanks

It's not specifically marked Australia. We are RJ3-RJ4 - same as the Middle East. Go to that folder. UCONNECT_8.4AN_RJ4_17.43.01_MY15_ROW.zip
