Hello. First time Jeep owner. Actually it's my wife's. I have a SRT392 Challenger. Love the vehicle and all its bells and whistles. I have a question regarding the 8.4 Uconnect. My Challenger is a 2017 as is this new Jeep. The Uconnect systems are quite different. Can someone tell me if the Uconnect in this Jeep has a Panasonic head unit? I looked at the system info but it doesn't specify. The software version is 16.xx.xx. I don't have the vehicle handy to confirm the exact software version. But, I would have thought this being a 2017 the software version would begin with 17. I'm puzzled.

Could be a 2017 model but have a build date of sometime in 2016 and that's when the software was uploaded. Someone correct me if I'm wrong about this.

I'm not sure of the manufacturer of the head units.

17.xx.xx was just released to the masses mid year. 16.xx.xx was the last of the USB updates, they're now all OTA. My '15 is on 17.xx.xx. I've seen folks with MY 14, 15 I think 16 and 17 receive the update even though the newer systems have the functionality already this update provides.

You can follow this link and put your VIN number in to see if an update is available for your system.
