I upgraded my 7” radio to an 8.4”. Added the LTE antenna and all is working well with on exception, I can’t get the off road pages to load. I’ve rebooted several times and even changed the splash screen to “rubicon” to see if that would trigger it with no luck. Anyone have any advice or suggestions?

I did not get the off road pages when I replaced my 7" with the 8.4". Maybe, if you can get your dealer to add the 8.4" to your VIN? Mine would not do it. No support from FCA for this either.

I'm considering upgrading from the 7inch to the 8.4 screen. Are you happy with the upgrade? Do you suggest the LTE upgrade also?

Thanks

If you want a bigger screen go for it any other reason than that don't bother

That's kind of what I figured. I'm bummed that I did't catch on that CarPlay is so small on the 7 inch screen. Why Jeep chose to implement this differently than every other can brand is beyond me. If they fix the small car play display, then I won't do the upgrade.

I’m probably going to sell the 8.4 I bought and get the alpine even though it’s insanely expensive

Which Alpine are you looking at? If you’re looking to sell that 8.4 let me know.

There is only one that fits the JL but it’s insanely expensive not sure if I want to spend the $$$$
