Thanks, just pre-ordered it. Everyone should start here to verify this is compatible with their vehicle.For those who are interested in getting the GPS update for the built in navigation:
I noticed this too. It almost has to be delivered on a USB drive. It would make things really difficult if they shipped it on a CD/DVD. The van doesn't have an optical drive unless you have the Uconnect theater option. Even then, I doubt it's connected to the radio in a way that allows data to be sent to it. Very few computers come with an optical drive these days as well.Note the software update.
I also went thru the UConnect website to see if it was compatible. Like Waldo, our has "IR SBX 22.5....", so I entered "IR" in the first field and "22.5" in the second. It then brought up the order entry (must be compatible, eh?) screen so I, too, bought it. This will be first map update available since new. The scary part will be installation. The last time that the dealer did a UConnnect update it destroyed the head unit and it took four months to get a replacement!I ordered it. I followed the link to get the Radio Part Information. The directions on that site leave room for confusion. They ask for the first 4 numbers after the 2 letters (IR in my case). In the cited example you get QR-34.5. That's pretty clear. However mine comes up IR SBX 22.50-2 (and more). So what is with the "SBX"? It turns out that you need to just ignore it and enter the "22.5" and you get joy. The web site doesn't like the letters.
I'll have to check again, but I'm sure that is the same information I saw for my 2018. Still not sure I will spring for this update, as I have not used the NAV more than 2 or 3 times over the last year. And that was just to see how it works. Getting older and not travelling anywhere that I do not know how to get to. Thanks Covid.Yeah, and my current map version is from the third quarter of 2017. Way out of date.
Yes, with COVID, currently I know 25 that have died from it in the last few months. Was holding at 24 the last three weeks until yesterday. Too many that I know that have been sick or permanently damaged I have lost count of those.I'll have to check again, but I'm sure that is the same information I saw for my 2018.
