    GPS in RAM trucks is not very good. The updates are typically over two years old and cost a lot of money - about $150USD. Even if you buy the newest maps, they are still two years out of date. Many folks are using Garmin or Tom Tom or other apps on a tablet or smartphone.

    You used to get a DVD from Uconnect to install the upgrades. Now I believe you download the maps from Uconnect and load them onto a USB drive to install.

    To upgrade my NAV in the truck I simply shut it off and mounted my Tom Tom. My Nav is a POS.

    I decided I did not want the RAM Nav, I have been using my GARMIN for years now in my service truck and RAM
    For 100$ life time updates too :) Sorry no help with the OEM Nav

    Our Ram head unit preload the latest map data, iGO(2016.10) or Sygic(2017.02).
    Lifetime free upgrade! Usually new map data is released semi-annually.
