Alright folks, I still need someone to PM me a Vin for the following so I can start tweaking the first few posts:

- 2013 Ram with 8.4AN (VP4-NA)

and

- 2016 Ram with 8.4AN (VP4-NA)

PS.
If anyone has any previous fw files they want me to host, please pm me. I keep seeing people post to get previous files. Surely some of you out there have them available. Lets help some folks out.
I am in the process of downloading v14.25.5 now for 2014 VP4-NA now.

Updated the first few posts with the Firmware files I got a hold of.

Added MD5's also to verify downloads.

Default RA4N update!
Many thanks to navrepair.com!!!!!! I now have working navigation along with the latest software update for my RA4N.

Anyone else that is having a problem with their RA4 upgrade, I would highly recommend navrepair.com. They were very prompt in answering all my email (questions) and kept me informed as to what was happening with my radio. Great experience.

Please provide details.
i.e.
- where did u buy the radio
- what did it cost for navrepair to fix it
- what was the issue preventing the fw update (memory fail, incompatible fw/model mis-match, etc)
- will accept future updates you do on your own

Bought radio from Schram......everything worked.
after update to 15.?? nav would not activate

Cost.......depends on what's found to be problem. Mine....$100
No issue preventing firmware.....in the process of installing the latest 15 firmware the nav files were corrupted. Nav files had to be reinstalled manually. Dealer can't do this if RA4 is not in your original build code!!

Should accept future firmwares....but no guarantees!!

That is nearly the same radio part number Jared 4.7 has and he updated to the latest fw. But who knows.

Zero problems since original install and recent update.
Thanks for posting pictures of that engineering screen with the part number.

To others, please share your radio year & PN:
If you press and hold both the temperature-up (red arrow) and temperature-down (blue arrow) buttons at the same time, for 5 or so seconds, you are presented with the "Engineering Menu"

LQK has this on ebay... Currently at $450


VP4 P/N: 68224525AH
looks like it might be a valid Ram P/N.
Jared 4.7 ....... (68224525AB),
OutlawTrucker (68224525AG), and
SitKneelBend . (68224525ZH) put the same base P/N in their trucks.

2014 Dodge Ram 1500 AM/FM Bluetooth Connect 8.4 Screen W/Nav OEM

Posted in Ebay Sale section also.

Alright folks, I was able to use the Quirkparts.com site with a valid 2013 VIN and came up with the following:

2013 8.4AN (RA4/VP4 NA, p/n):
Possible P/N's: (Quirkparts.com /body/Sound System using valid 8.4AN VIN)
- 5091051AD / RADIO CODE: RA4,RSD,RS7
- 5091055AD / RADIO CODE: RJ4
- 5091060AD / RADIO CODE: RA4

- 68184965AD / RADIO CODE: RA4,RSD (Appears to be a VP4-CA /Canada radio)

Not that anyone wants a 2013 VP4 radio, but its worth noting. Might be more p/n's out there. Unfortunately, none of the 2014 and 2015 Ram Vins with 8.4AN/VP4 I have pull up on quirkparts.com. I added the above to the OP.

EDIT: The above apparently verifies the following ebay item as a 2013 RAM VP4:

Dodge RAM JEEP VP4 RA4 Navigation GPS Screen Radio MP3 Player OEM 2013-2014
P/N: 5091051AC
But they want $715 ?? Really? For a 2013 VP4?
