How to Update Your Maps in the Uconnect

As a lot of people don't browse outside of the Australian area you may have missed how easy it is to update your maps to a newer version.
If you are sick of your maps being way out of date then read on, (providing you have a 2nd Generation model).

What you will need is :-
  1. USB key (Corsair, Kingston or something of quality)
  2. New maps. (Garmin of course)

The current maps for Australia look something like this
City Navigator Australia & New Zealand NT 2014.40

If you have them zipped you should see something similar to this
CNAUNZ201440NAVTEQ_AllInOne_UL.rar (Unzip it to a temp folder somewhere)
you should see a file in there like CN_AUNZ_NT_2014.4-NAVTEQ.img
rename that file to GMAPPROM.IMG

First thing to so is format the USB key using FAT32.
Now create a folder on the root of the key called Garmin.
In the root of the Garmin folder add these 2 files
GMAPPROM.IMG
GMAP3D.IMG

Now look for a folder called JCV with 1 or more JCV files inside
Now copy this as a subfolder to the Garmin folder

If you see a folder called ASR than copy this as a subfolder to the Garmin folder. These are the files needed to make the VR work with the sat nav however as you are aware it doesn't work over here. But just in case it won't hurt to add them if they are there and who know it just might work for someone.

Adding Voice Files. (With these files some voice commands will now work)
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5z2d04ywz...kmfZjjOFwViW3a

Add these files to the ASR folder.
So you should see 3 files with a .ASR extension and 3 with .SRD extension and 1 with a SRX extension

After you update your maps you the following voice commands will now work.

View Map
Where To
Find Points of Interest
Find Recently Found
Go Home
Find Nearest Bank
Find Nearest airport
Find Nearest hotel
Plus many other find nearest.

This is not adding an address via voice but its more than we had.

Now its time to go to the car and update the maps.
This process can take a while and you need to have the ignition on and you might have to cycle the ignition during the process which normally means you can't have the door open.
TIP. Leave the door open and flick the door catch so the car thinks the door is shut, then you can start the process and do other stuff while it updates.

With the ignition on stick the USB key in and it should start validating the files. (this can take a while.)
After validating, it should pop up saying it has found new maps and ask if you want to update them.
Next you should see the progress bar as it updates your maps.

When its 100% finished it should say that it was unsuccessful.
All Done, take your key out and check you have the new maps.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
