Tipo Uconnect 5 maps update

My Mopar Map care subscrition expired. Could somebody help me how to buy updated maps to Uconnect 5 navi. I tried everything - mopar web site, tomtom web site, contacted local dealer and service, fiat customer care but all my attempts failed. My location is Slovakia.
Thank you for any advice.

Re: Tipo Uconnect 5 maps update

I've downloaded the maps update from the Mopar website. It says it takes 1 hour to install, which I was a bit surprised to hear!

Has anyone tried this? Did it actually take an hour to update?

Also, can you drive whilst this is being updated, because the car needs to be on and the radio switched on.

Would appreciate hearing about the experience of others.

Thanks

Mine took over an hour with the 5inch unit the 7" is faster I've been told
And yes you can still drive the car with it updating and the radio will play in the background

You can also set the raido to go off 20 mins after turning the key and just keep nipping out every 15 mins or so and put the key in and turn the car on and off while it updates

Re: Tipo Uconnect 5 maps update

Thanks for your reply, I've got the 7 inch unit, so hopefully it will be shorter than an hour. It's great to know it can update whilst driving, so I'll save the update for a long journey. Thanks again, that's really helpful.

I downloaded from:

https://maps.mopar.eu/en/home

Your car needs to be within the warranty period for it to work.

If it is, you need to register with your VIN in order to download, if there is an update available.
