UConnect Software Update - Worth It?

Good morning, everyone! I recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara that includes the 430 touchscreen radio. I see that there's a software update available for me on the UConnect website. I'm no tekkie and the instructions they give on that site along with the download are a bit too cumbersome for me. Is it really worth it to update the software? What sort of updates are included? Thanks, in advance!

It did not add anything of value that I could see. Nothing changed on the interface, and no extra options were added. Is it possible it cleaned it up a bit in the background, maybe....but i did not find anything new in it.

I say its not worth it because i ran into countless errors before it took. It even froze for a good hour before i have to unplug it and start again...scary ****.

I’d check to see if yours has already been updated. I updated mine when the update first came out and when I search by the VIN the “update” still shows as available. It never registered that I even completed the update. When I check my version number following their instructions, it shows that the update took.
