Just got a e-mail about purchasing a map update for $99. Has anybody done the update and if so what improvements besides the maps did you see?
I agree, but I was wondering if the interface is improved, or any other changes to the looks of it.I interstate travel thousands and thousands of miles yearly in my 2018 JL....... and even I can't see paying $ for that update. Makes little sense to me..... a waste of $.
Anyone, that travels... uses GPS, is far far far better off using Google Maps with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
Stock NAV .... onboard Nav, even when running current ver. maps is laughable at best. Same same regarding any brand vehicle's onboard GPS.
@Mark ElliottI agree, but I was wondering if the interface is improved, or any other changes to the looks of it.
I was really kind of hoping that the Offroad Pages would be kinda like this - a terrain map view with an overlay of the vehicle details (pitch, roll, etc). It would insanely useful on the trails to be able to simultaneously see where I am AND how my vehicle is doing.I got the email earlier in the week about this. Complete waste of money and the fact that they claim it’s $50 off is a joke. Unless they added a treasure map for the Beale Ciphers, I will be sticking with Waze, Apple Maps, and Gaia GPS for my needs.
What I would pay $100 for is a solid off-road mapping program on the Jeep - think Badge of Honor trails along with other trails that fellow Jeepers record with notes. You could then sync it with an Android and iOS app for those who don’t have Unconnect.
Talk about community driven off-roading! (pun intended)
