2017 Navigation Update for 2009 Wrangler RER NOT 2017 Data
I'm guessing you already know how the updates are not totally what they say they are but I just updated my navigation database to what was advertised as a "2017" update. After loading, I noticed some information that I had expected to be there was not so I checked into the disk I was sent.
On the install disk I found notation that this database is not 2017 but "2Q 2016". I had several back/forths with the HERE, INC. folks and finally they admitted that this was indeed the case. Gave me a song & dance about it taking 12-18 months to test before release. Not buying that but, since my old database was from 2012, it was still an update for me so kept it. FYI, the 2017 update CD installed version: N 1645 3.0.0 of the navigation database. It took a while for them to even admit that; claiming that they don't know what Jeep does with the releases.
However be aware that this is the age of the information on the update in case you are tempted to shell out the $$ assuming that it really IS 2017 information.

Also, I didn't mean to suggest that the update was not worth it, especially if your current version was old enough like mine was. Just wanted to make sure folks knew that the info was >1yr old and definitely NOT 2017 data.
