    Does this have anything to do with the update and GPS issues?

    A dealer that I stopped by this morning said it is the biggest issue they are dealing with lately since the GPS issue impacts all vehicles. Supposedly due to satellites chaining orbit slightly or how they are timed. They follow the exact procedure in the directions and takes just as long, but most people (most highly educated population in America) have a difficult time figuring it out.

    Alone else have any info.

    Didnt receive that but I did just receive this screen message. I wonder if they are related. I gassed up and came into the vehicle to this screen message. It first came up a month ago during operation and I was able to ignore it. This time the car was off in park and did it so I had no choice. Good times sitting there with people waiting. On the plus side the update took and it started without issues. Then during operation another screen comes on to inform u that the update was successful. you click ok and it goes away.

    I got this screen after my oil change and inspection from dealership. it came on as I got on the highway and my girlfriend read me the part where it says 'car should not be driven or in park etc.. ' I wasn't pulling over lol. it did reach 100% complete.

    There is a separate thread on the UConnect updates you guys are seeing. This is not the same as the GPS USB update that the OP posted about.

    Gotcha. I definitely didn't receive that then. Are we all getting them or only select VIN's?

    You can also go to the uconnect website and download the update for your specific vin onto a usb and do it that was.. i think its 18.45.xx or 18.5x.xx depending on your year and radio if memory serves me correct

    I just went to the uconnect website and downloaded the new update, took around 30 minutes to install on the battery tender, no issues

    No worries. I had a love/hate relationship with my GTS at one point.

    Just to clarify.....are we talking about two different upgrades? One that is recently sent over the air (usually but is also downloadable) for the Uconnect system itself and one specifically to upgrade the GPS satellite system that is being mailed to owners?

    Yes. Two different issues apparently.

    That is correct ViperJon. The forced update everyone got and updated on its own. The gps satellite update is the usb update that is separate and I guess being rolled out to everyone.

    So since I don't have Nav on my car ( I have a 13, and have never upgraded) I guess I won't get this one.
