Hello all!
2 questions here! Your input & knowledge is greatly appreciated as always....
1) Does anyone know what/when the last Unconnect update was for the 7" head unit?
2) I swapped out my 5" for a 7" head unit... do I need a donor VIN to check for an update or is there a site where i can simply download the latest
firmware?

-Thank you

I don't believe there was ever an update for the 7". I had one in my '20 (until I upgraded to an 8.4") and I've yet to see any update for it. The 7" does not receive over-the-air updates.

To be honest, if it isn't broken, leave it be.

Yes, you will need a VIN from a vehicle with the 7" from the factory. Enter the VIN here: https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/software-update.html

I have an early 2018 and have periodically checked and there has never been an update, there may be one tied to say a TSB but the only way to get that if from the dealer

Thanks for the replies... I think you are correct all other threads point to the fact that there has been zero updates on the Uconnect site but there have been TSB updates via the dealer.
Jeep Obviously made their Headunit/stereo last on the totem pole in regards to effort... these Uconnect systems are buggy at best.
