Ok, would you mind trying something for me?
I would like you to download the file mentioned in the 1st posting in this thread.
After you DL it, put it on your thumb drive, then. copy it again so that you have 2 files on the thumb drive:
uconnect.upd
uconnect.upn
--------------------------------------------------

Now rename the 2nd file to .upn so that the files look like:

uconnect.upd
uconnect.upn
------------------------------------------------------------
Please try the thumb drive in the vehicle again. After we get this update to take, then you'll want to do the 2nd update for the streaming audio sound quality that I have at the bottom of the 1st post in this thread.

No, I haven't heard about any new updates yet. If I remember correctly, the 2011 Uconnect module is tapped out because of the available memory space. Very little left.

Hey guys,

I seem to be having the same issue with my 2013 Dodge that has Uconnect. It keeps flashing on my screen "please insert update USB" and I also took it to the dealer and they were of no help an said that its a wiring issue. I was wondering if anyone could help me with getting the update downloaded? Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks,


Chad

There are 3 different suppliers for the uconnect system. This particular update is not for the 2013 Uconnect system in your truck.
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Dodge get a very good job at Validating this system before releasing it to be built into the vehicles.

Default 201 RHB Update

There's not been an update since? My GPS told me it was over a year old and to get an update...the speed limits have increased here in Ohio...incredible!

ok, just to clear up a little confusion. With the RES, REQ, RBZ & RHB radios, there is an external Uconnect module. The radio and Uconnect each have separate SW updates. This particular update is for the Uconnect module and has nothing to do with the radio. There are newer SW versions for the radio depending on which version that you currently have on the radio. Can you tell me which version you have now?
