uConnect 2019 MAP update

Disclaimer: I can not be held responsible for any damages to your uConnect, Car or your hair falling out from running this modification.

***This is a unofficial Modification to your uConnect - Do not update your unit after applying this modification***


That being said, if you do have a problem please contact me and I will see if I can help you fix it.

For all those people still on v17.07.46 (Fiat and Jeep) v17.07.55 (Alfa) or older uConnect 6.5 firmware I offer you an update your maps. I have to warn you though, the process can take a lot of time!

My current Map pack 2019v1 is based on 2018Q3 maps, these maps have everything working (Speedcam, full postcode search, TMC). I can provide newer map files (2019Q1) however the Speedcam and full 7-digit Postcode search don't work on them currently.

For those of you who have updated your uConnect to v17.35.41 or v18, I am still working on how to update those, FCA / Fiat / Alfa changed the locks with that update!

For a Full EU update, if you follow my instructions fully, it will take approx. 4hours during which time your uConnect must remain powered on. This time can be greatly reduced by only updating the country or countries you need, or if you are feeling brave, skipping Step 1.

Files / Items needed:

uConnect 6.5 running v17.07.xx or older firmware, If your firmware is older that v16, I would strongly recommend updating to v17.07.46 before running my map update.

At least 8gb USB Drive ***preferably with a flashing led light so you can see file access, I use SanDisk Fit USB3 with perfect success***

Files from
https://mega.nz/#F!kURhTCbJ!uJhKPMyGiESbvQSDb33CvQ

Stage 1 – Backup your files

Prep:
Download:
1 Magic -Fiat & Jeep pre UPD.zip -For Fiat / Jeep
2 Backup.zip

Process
1. Download and expand “1 Magic.zip” and “2 Backup.zip”
2. Copy the content onto the root of the USB drive
3. Start car and let uConnect boot up (wait approx 5min for full boot up)
4. Plug in and WAIT, the uConnect will not appear to be doing anything but if you are using a USB with a light you should be able to see it flashing with file activity
5. After some time, in my case it took 1h25 to complete this stage, it should popup a window about there is a update that you MUST answer NO to
6. Pull USB, and power cycle the uConnect*

After that you now have a backup of all the system and map files we are going to change on your uConnect.
KEEP THEM SAFE!
Either use a second USB for stage 2, save the backup folder to your computer or if your like me and use a 16gb USB stick you can leave it where it is.

I have now uploaded copies of the official EU Map Packs from (A) 2013, 2015 and 2017 that should function as a backup or official upgrade for anybody needing to restore or keep official software / maps only.

Stage 2 – Modify your uConnect

Prep:
Download:
1 Magic.zip --You should already have this if you completed Stage 1
D FEU Custom 2019v1.zip --FullEU (Newest update!) - If you just want to update the UK then just download the UK map pack

Or
A EU 2013 Original NQEU2012Q4.zip --Stock 2013 Maps, Original EU Release
A EU Update 2015 HMEU2014Q2.zip --Going back to stock with 2015 Maps
A EU Update 2017 HMEU2015Q4.zip --Newest Original Map files that I have, released 2017


Process
1. Download and expand “1 Magic.zip” and “D XX Custom 2019v1….zip”
2. Copy the content onto the root of the USB drive, if the same stick that contains the back up files, let it replace the Script.lua file
3. Start car and let uConnect boot up (wait approx. 5min for full boot up)
4. Plug in and WAIT, the uConnect will not appear to be doing anything but if you are using a USB with a light you should be able to see it flashing with file activity
5. After some time, depending on “D” file used - If country only pack approx. 15min if full EU then approx. 2h, it should popup a window about there is a update that you MUST answer NO to
6. Pull USB, and power cycle the uConnect*

If all gone well you will now have a uConnect 6.5 with updated maps!

**Sometimes with a FEU update, it does not work the first time, to save you having to run the full update again I have created a Fix file that is only needed if your Navigation will not activate after the power cycle.**


*To Power cycle:
Press and hold the Power and Browser / Enter buttons for approx 30 seconds
Or use engineers menu to reset the uConnect (Press Radio, More and Browse until menu pops up, scroll down to Reset Radio, answer YES *****DONT SELECT FACTORY RESTORE****)
Thanks Geolith thanked for this post
