i have a abarth 595 with updates until july 2023 went onto mopar filled in my car details down loaded the maps.i then unziped them as instructed it deleted my old maps but the said the ones i was installing are wrong but they are for my car ,so now i have a useless sat nav just a big con.if your sat nav is working leave alone and use google instead.Now every time i start my car it asks for the maps.Now this I would be interested in. I’ve no doubt these updates must be a simple case of copying to a flash drive, inserting in the USB port & letting the system self update. I contacted mopar via Twitter, who also gave me the same useless information, so I've now raised this with Fiat customer services here in the UK. I'm happy to install my own maps if they will just let me subscribe to the blooming service!
A 2015 car should not have had blue and meThe first abarth i had was a 2015 and all you had to do was go on the blue and me web site down load the tool to a usb plug it in your car and then go back to the web site.the tool checked what version was needed etc ,but now needs a browser with Flash even then it dose not work thats progress ????
Just as a follow-up to the software update (uconnect, not maps). I tried on the 7" uconnect in my 2017 500s with the above linked files tonight & it said vehicle is not supported when I tried to update, so it would seem I need a different uconnect software update.FIRMWARE INSTALLATION GUIDE UCONNECT 7 500X
Follow the step-by-step guide, otherwise the installation will not start. Premise must be made that the firmware is absolutely intact and functional and for this reason I do not consider myself responsible if you fail to install or for any other problem.
Download the firmware by going to the link provided, top left on the 23.03.17.01 folder, right click download as zip. Once the download is complete on your PC, right-click unzip it into a folder you previously created. Once this is done, select all the files and paste them into the root of the USB pen drive which must be formatted in fat32, no file present and possibly USB v2.0 with LEDs to check the status.
The files must look like this otherwise the update will not start:

Once the pen drive is ready, turn on the car and connect (update time 30 minutes), insert the pen drive in the left USB socket and wait for the message where the update will be proposed. Click on yes and wait an average of 30 minutes without touching anything. All connect functions are in
currently disabled. The device will reboot several times until you are prompted to remove the USB. At this point, enter the connect settings, dissociate the phone and re-associate it. PROCEDURE FINISHED.
IMPORTANT NOTES: The firmware works 100% if installed correctly. If some uncopied files are missing, if the pen drive is not formatted and if folders are created, the firmware will not start because it has protection. If, despite everything, it doesn't start, there are frequent pen drive compatibility problems. The 100% working one is the 8gb 2.0 Silicon Power also used by technicians.
For all problems related to PCs, USB sticks, etc. I cannot provide help, as these are IT problems and not related to firmware installation
Different cars have different hardware versions one probably have different softwareJust as a follow-up to the software update (uconnect, not maps).
