Hello Friends to the USA from Germany,

i have a 2016 Challenger SRT and i will update the U Connect

Software 16.09.09

Serial Nummer: T00BE117671883

I download the newest version at driveuconnect.com with the right VIN Number

I put it on a USB with FAT32 - in the Challenger the screen shows me this messange:

Are there any older Software versions available from the uConnect site? I wonder if jumping from 16.09.09 directly to 18.45.01 might be a problem. I installed 18.45.01 on my 2015 but I upgraded several times before to newer versions.

FYI a member had issues jumping from 15.xx.xx to 18.xx.xx but the year mismatch is puzzling.

You could try finding a different vin with same year to download the software again see if you get a different result.

BTW do you know if the radio was ever swapped out?

BTW this is someone who apparently is collecting and saving all uconnect firmware. Should be a sticky.

I'd start with the place CT posted above. Seems to have a large collection

I've tried a lot now. Unfortunately, no update works.

The USB stick is not recognized with the 16.33 - all other updates too

Can someone tell me which update I need for the US ?

Software 16.09.09
Part Nummer: 68258397AF
Serial Nummer: T00BE117671883

Or can only the Dodge dealer do that ? What software does he use ?

If you have 16.09.09 now I think you need to update in steps. I posted a link where someone was collecting all the firmwares for a uconnect. I will see if I can find it an post it shortly.

Here try this link to see if you can get a older...but more up to date firmware.

LoL I just realized it's the same thread. If the firmwares are not working then dealer or shop with witech will have the files needed to bring the radio up to date.

Try a different USB as well, what size are you trying? Nothing else on the USB? Files in the root, no folder? No other devices plugged in?
