4th gen ram owners don't have SRT pages and you won't get much feedback at this site/thread. You may want to reach out to CustomTronix or see the link towards the bottom of the first post for a possible non USA SW ...

Here you go it is in the Uconnect8.4 directory under Panasonic (non USA Radios). They also have the 21.6 update which might have maps in it since it is over 9GB. I didn't download it since it is not for my US radio.

Hi there all,

Posting this in hopes someone has an RA3/RA4 v17.xx.xx MY16 Canadian update file squirrelled away.

Many thanks for taking a look.

Cheers,

Looking for the latest software for my Canadian 2020 5th Gen Ram 8.4” Nav radio. Does anyone know how to find these files?

Thanks

Folks,

Found an RA3 17.43.01 version that worked on my Canadian MY16 8.4 UConnect stuck on 16.09.09. This should allow me to jump to 18.45.01 and activate the NAV/install the latest map package although I'm pretty sure I can do that on 17.43.01.

The file is here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/luly8kut8qqppfu/UCONNECT_8.4A_RA3_17.43.01_MY16_NAFTA.zip/file It was a bit unnerving to update and took about 45 minutes to complete. It looped unit number 1 and 2, 3 times before it moved to the remainder. Thought I pooched my unit but it completed without issue so be patient if it happens to you.

Head unit P/N 68258676AH Truck build date is 5-16. Full functionality and no issues to date.

Cheers,

Skydog

O.K! Finished the up-grade to 18.45.01. I had some concern because there was no image file in the down load, but thanks to chrisbh17, who noted what exact files should be on the jump drive (page 109 of this thread) I ran with it. (Also, I got un-lazy and read every page in the thread) And the up-grade went swimmingly.. The up-grade fixed a plaguing problem with the navigation. Often times I would get ready to use the navigation and it didn't know where it was... when I would go to info - where am I - GPS it indicated it was not connected to any satellites. Sometimes it would connect after a power down and door open, sometimes not. And sometimes just driving along it would all of a sudden connect.

After the upgrade, bam - I have satellite connection immediately every time, and the clock works for automatic time retrieval. Thanks for all this, much appreciated!
