    ***UPDATE

    Jeep has confirmed that offroad pages are going to be released to the 2018 model year via a over-the-air update.

    "At this time"...there is no reason we won't get them eventually.

    I’ve been trying to find out why when the rebooting issue was resolved the off road pages disappeared. It’s still advertised and I have screenshots from other tweets

    Exactly, they can port and display the data but some other patch boinked up the offroad pages for the Uconnect display and now they don't have the resources, don't know how to, or cannot fix it, and are hoping they can get it together in time for 2019. It would be nice if they would just 'fess up and explain the problem. It's probably code but could also be firmware or even a hardware issue on either side (Jeep or Uconnect).

    If it's fixable, give us a timeline. If it's not fixable, explain why in detail. Seems pretty simple.

    If a 400 lb guy in his basement can successfully hack a Presidential election...you would think a few dozen FCA programmers could program the off road pages in a couple of months.

    These are separate issues. The rebooting was due to a problem with a Travel Link update. The off-road pages were gone before that even happened.

    This will have to do until they deliver the off road pages...

    But aren't they already available in the Grand Cherokee, or am I mistaken?

    Hopefully it wasn't a hardware change. Such as an increase in flash memory in the 2019 models.

    I really hope that means 2018s will eventually get them and not, "2018s will never get them."

    Then they need to stop advertising it on 2018 models and tell those of us who bought it what the hell is going on.

    The Uconnect 4C 8.4” Head unit is the same that’s on the Grand Cherokee and they’ve been displaying he Off Road Pages on that model since 2017. Shouldn’t be a hardware issue since the hardware isn’t new. It’s a plug and play head unit.
