not sure if I have posted this already some other place.
on my 2017 the updated failed and message said contact the dealer.
They had to replace the whole radio unit.
Lucky me I am still under warranty.
New radio runs the update at ease.

|tkd01||Got around to installing the update this morning, and everything went fine. Now have my correct GPS time back. Wasn't sure if my usb drive was working as nothing happened when I first put it in. Took it out a couple of times and then I got an error message. So, it seems to take a minute or so to set things up and then it starts updating. I sat in the truck the whole time, I guess you are not supposed to open door or anything. Not sure if this made a difference or not. Took about 30 minutes for the whole process. Thanks for the assistance.|

Most updates have been security patches and upkeep. No additional features or anything I have noticed. This update corrects the GPS date roll over in the sierra wireless gateway. Kind of like the Y2K thing years ago with computers if you remember that.
So if you have Nav or use the GPS timing it will be screwed up now if you don't update.

|Minnow101||I must not have it set to GPS as I only have to adjust the time twice a year at Daylight Savings time. I've followed the conversations on the software updates over the years and have never seen anything that does much on the 8.4. Am I missing out on something ?|

|Minnow101||Nope, no NAV.|

You can most certainly update it manually but you will not get the over the air updates

|Minnow101||I bought a replacement 8.4 from Infotainment on my SLT back in 2016 to replace the stock 5.0 . Have never updated the radio since and apparently according to UConnect can't because its not the stock radio that is tied to my VIN. UConnect suggested going to dealer. That's a big NO. Never had a problem so will keep on doing what I have been doing; nothing.|

My '14 updated itself over the weekend. I had a couple of popup messages telling me that there was an update and then on Sunday(?), it gave me the option to "update now" or "schedule".
I set it to install an hour or so after I got home. The next morning I had a popup that told me the new version was installed.
Just walked out and checked, truck shows 18.45.01
