I do not want to be un-respectful, but this is another disinformation just to justify the Uconnect disaster. If the concern is not to overpowering the cell towers you can provide the update via https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/software-update.html.
The good listener few words…
You guys write a good looking message but when the time comes you do nothing.
Just see the in your files the case number 79666969 and you will see.
I just asked to apply TSB 08-003-21 to my JLU and you did not help at all.
Been there done that.
As I said before, the dealership knows only one statement: "Everything is fine, your JLU does not need any updates." Why do they do that? I don't know, probably because they can't charge for the service or just more simply, they don't know how to do it.
Basically this is...
My screen flickers and the NHTSA website says that it is resolved with an update of the Uconnect that would come out in the first quarter of 2021.
The problem will appear in the new Radio too, if the software is the same version that the one you have already installed.
If you seek few pages back you will find exact the same approach that you describe here.
Welcome to the club.
This is a twilight zone, if you communicate with Uconnect customer support they say there is no new version of the software but if you read the Service Bulletin 08-003-19 of the FCA US (attached) it says that there is an update for radio software (ver. 1828.08).
I think there is something in combination with Uconnect and Google Map, because I start some direction in my Pixel 2 XL with Google Map, everything seems perfect, them connect to Uconnect in my WJLU 2018 and instantly the image shows me what I have seen previously on the screen of my cellphone...
