    I wouldn't think that matters. The USB drive is for the GPS which you don't need a Uconnect subscription for.

    How can we check if we are getting this update if we're not the original owner?

    I was not aware that you could download GPS system updates from the UConnect site. I thought they were always delivered on a thumb drive even if you bought just the map update which Dodge sends out advertisements for periodically. I would think they would be too huge to download. Last time I got a GPS update from Dodge it was also on a thumb drive. This was for my 2014 GTS and was several years ago. That was a special of some kind and they sent the map update free of charge for some reason.

    Speaking of map updates does this GPS thumb drive include map updates or is it just to update the software so as to avoid the Y2K like bug in the clock?

    I just received two emails, one for my 2014 and one for my 2017 from UConnect that offer a map upgrade for the GPS for $149. They say there is free shipping which leads me to believe that they would send a thumb drive. This update is probably just the maps though and not the actual GPS system software which is probably required to fix the clock bug. On the other hand maybe it includes both the map upgrade and the software fix. Maybe FCA is just trying to get me to pay for the fix by buying the map upgrades. Hmmm......

    No thumb drive yet for my '17. If it shows up I'll install, if it doesn't I don't care...I don't use the Viper Nav feature anyway.

    I did get the forced updates a couple weeks ago.

    What's the general consensus on this?

    I do use the system from time to time but with some of the issues I have read about is it worth the money/effort.

    I seem to remember one year where they offered the map update for free. You know "Regularly a $149 value now free if you order by xxx", or something like that. I think it was sometime around 2015 or so. They sent a thumb drive which I installed without issue. Here in Colorado they have been doing constant road construction on the interstates changing where exits are, how many lanes there are, and so forth. Given this my GPS is often wrong. "Keep Right to exit" when there is no longer an exit at that spot because it was moved a 1/4 mile up the road. So maybe I will buy the upgrade for one car. I wonder if it will work for both Gen 5 Vipers, my wife's 2018 GC SRT, and my 2017 Ram 1500. Then it might actually be worth the $149.
