The download update for Canada works perfectly as well. Did mine last night, and everything is good now.

Looks like a new splash screen for ORP when the app boots. Mine show a black background (I’m in an older version of uconnect).

The splash screen should actually be darker, but there is some ghosting that still shows right after the update. This is documented in the bulletin notes. I'm glad too, because that would make be anxious during the update if I had not know beforehand! Update started at 65m00s and finished around 25m. So, shorter than indicated, but longer than the docs I was reading predicted. I'm glad I did not have to pay the dealer to do it, or even take it to them if it was considered warranty...

@ToolMan514 thanks for the feedback! I usually try to keep all my systems on current versions (computers, phones, etc), but Since I’ve actually not had any issues (knock on wood), I’ve been avoiding doing the update. Uconnect is so temperamental, I’m afraid to rock the boat.

I was excited to try this to see if it might make things run better. It worked easily enough although it didn't like the 128GB drive I tried first but was ok with the 32GB I tried.

I just did it about a week ago but sadly things have been worse so far. While I haven't experienced the sound cutting out issue, I've had the blue screen of death about 3 times so far and that was a rarity previously (4-5 times in the last year). We'll see if it persists but looks like I might have made a mistake loading the update.

It's really awesome when you shut the Jeep off with the radio loud and then load your kids in the car to go somewhere and can't turn it down or off. This morning we had to listen to Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" on the way to school before it thankfully rebooted on its own. Shutting the car off again and opening the door doesn't usually seem to do anything, it seems to need to complete the crash on itself. Grr.

To stay on topic, I did get the Offroad Pages!

I was able to download the update to my 32gb Sandisk USB drive. I extracted the folder into the USB giving me two folders. However, when I plugged it on the Jeep's dash, nothing comes out. Did I miss something?

Finally got the off road pages and the backup camera to work with the guidelines.
The file name is UCONNECT_8.4_IR21.10_MY18JL_VP4R_USA
It’s a 9.26 GB zip file. I used 32 GB USB TD, make sure USB drive is formatted in FAT 32.
Straight forward update. So glad I didn’t need to go to the dealer for this update.
Everything works great, no more blue screen!

Drive must be formatted in either FAT32 or NTFS to work. exFAT format will not work. Did you also extract the two folders to the root of the drive, or just copy the ZIP file?

Update: I re-downloaded the update to my 32 GB USB thumb drive and was able to work. It took about an hour or so. I started it in the morning during my commute to work and left it in park after that. After 17 months, I finally have OFF ROAD PAGES!!!!! So far so good, let's hope no glitches occur in the upcoming days.

Download zip file update to your desktop, open zip file there will be two folders map_package and VP4R_Update. Drag them to your thumb drive.
Make sure there is nothing else on the drive. Check the properties of the two folders make sure they are the same size as your download was.
Pop it in your USB port no. 1 just below the radio and you should be good to go.

The version that I downloaded about two weeks ago that came out around 15 of May was 21. Something or rather, I forget the exact numbers. I had 17. Whatever before downloading.
Thanks. I have 17 but have always had off road pages since I bought it. But now im curious if im missing some bug fixes or anything. The site says i have no updates and its up to date. ;/

Haven’t gone through it all but it doesn’t look much different. If you haven’t been experiencing any of the screen glitches (i.e., blue/green screen, radio shutting off, black screen) don’t even worry about it.
