Navigation Problems

My 2015 Cherokee Limited gives me the correct details to leave say a motorway and as soon as I am on the off ramp it will say "Off route recalculating" and by the time I am at a roundabout or a set of lights it then continues with the original instructions. Dealer has put updates in but no change. Does any one else have this problem

What's the version? Go to Settings --> System Information. It should be Version 16.13.13

This happens to mine every once in a while. Also happens sometimes with Google Maps and Waze. The GPS accuracy diminishes for a few moments and the mapping software thinks the car is on another closeby road, but the wrong road. Then the GPS accuracy improves or the roads diverge enough the mapping software determines the car is back on the correct road, and all is good. That's my story and i'm sticking to it .

V16.13.13 has a couple of Nav fixes on it which may or may not help.

Thanks for that just checked it 15.17.5

It has been 3 times for this and has been updated for maps and something called the head with no change.
Some of ramps are very separate from the motorway or even left turns at lights. it doesn't catch up until the next lights or a roundabout.
my portable Garmin has no such problems.
The car is great other wise.

Ok you're a couple behind but you can jump straight to V16.13.13. You can get the upgrade and apply it yourself if you feel comfortable doing that. Takes about 15/20 minutes to download to a USB and then another 20 odd minutes to upgrade the vehicle.

Put your VIN in here: http://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/ and it will show you the latest for your vehicle including download instructions. (Take the download directly option)

Alternatively, if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, take a print screen of the driveuconnect screen with your VIN input and the latest that it suggests and take that to your dealer for them to do it. (No cost to you).
