Smile A way to update Radio and Nav on 430N RHB!

I have been doing some research on how to update the Maps on the 430N RHB.

This is the somewhat easy way to do it. (or just less painful)

This is for someone who knows his way around a computer.

1. First you need a copy of the radio software update. (I used the last 50.00.07) It will be usually in .ISO form. I found it easily doing a google search.

2. Download the latest copy of Garmin City Navigator North America NT Unlocked. (I used 2014.10) You can find it on most torrent site.

Here is the tricky step:

3. Mount the .ISO file on a virtual drive (I used Daemon tool. Its free) and open it to see its content. Copy all the file to a new folder on your computer. Lets call this Folder "Radio Update"

4. Copy the file gmapsupp.img from the newly download folder "Garmin City Navigator North America NT" to the folder called "Garmin" inside the "Radio Update" folder. Once copied inside the "Garmin" folder, rename it gmapprom.img. (the one inside the "Garmin" folder)

5. (optional) if you have the junction view files, create a folder called JCV folder inside the "Garmin" folder and copie the JCV file in there.

6. Now you need to burn the content of the "Radio Update" folder on a DVD. Burn all content and not the "Radio Update" folder.

7. Insert the DVD in the radio unit and wait for a long time. It took me almost 2 hours to complete all updates.

Do this update with the vehicle running or a charger on the battery. You can not interrupt the process. Starting the vehicle will interrupt the process.

It did not ask me for a code for the maps.

This process updated all my maps and the radio software at the same time.

I tried to make those instructions easy.

This should be moved to general discussion.

My mistake.

This worked for me. It took 5 days and about 10 hours to get it all figured out but I was able to update the Garmin map on my 2011.

I had 50.xxxxx and had to downgrade to 33.xxxx. From there I was able to load the Garmin map file from USB to my device. It took about 40 minutes to save. I was then able to update back to 50.xxxxx

All in all, I had several failed attempts with an unlocked map until I did some digging on some less than reputable sites to understand some of the Garmin lock/code issues. This is where the extra hours came in.

In the end, I have 2014.10 Garmin maps updated on my RHB with the updated Junction views. No luck on custom voices yet. It is WONDERFUL to be able to get around the costly and outdated maps that you buy from Mopar. By that I mean legally acquiring the Garmin city navigator map and then hacking it up to get it to load on the system is cheaper.

Try to look around on p2p/torrent sites.

I downloaded an unlocked version, but I did receive an error when I tried to load it. The radio prompted an error asking for the unlock code. This might have been due to my error somewhere. I found had to find a key generator for the maps on the web and used a tool to code the key into the map file. From there it loaded without any errors.

I've read pages and pages on this at the Jeep message board and am still confused about the exact files I need.

I go here... http://gpsunderground.com/forum/garm...2014-40-a.html

and there are a million files listed.
I don't know what I need, I'm guessing "Map source data" & "D1279210A.JCV"

Is this right?

So, once I go through all of this will it work on multiple vehicles? Both our vehicles are '12s and have the 430N radio. I was able to perform the upgrade to 50.xxx with the same setup disk I cretaed.

yeah it'll work on both, you will have to roll back the firmware version to 33.xx.xx first... then update maps... then reinstall firmware version 50.xx.xx
