Anyone else unable to access the special screen for getting the code to activate the nav on the 8.4 uconnect? Holding drivers side temp buttons and front defrost doesn't work for me. 2018 trailhawk

It is my understanding on the new Uconnect systems that the Compass has you can no longer do this.If you do not order it with Navigation installed there is no way to get it after the fact. The older model 8.4 this could be done but not the newer model. If I remember correctly when we were looking for a new Compass for my wife we wanted Navigation and could not find 1 in this area that had the options we wanted and the closest one we could find to what we wanted did not have navigation. I asked a buddy of mine that worked at the dealer as a salesman if we could just get it and have them activate Navigation and he told me the new Uconnects could not do it. It was either use android auto or get one with Navigation. We wound up ordering a new one at the end of November and we picked it up the day after Christmas

Odd because they advertise the 8.4c as upgradable for nav. Vehicle even has the GPS antenna (according to diagnostic screen). @JeepCares do you have any info?

Did you ever find out if NAV can be added after the fact? I was trying to order a latitude with 6spd manual and Jeep said it couldn't be done with the 8.4NAV. They are looking into if I can just get the 8.4 without NAV. So if there is a possibility to flash that feature after the fact, that would be great.

Not on the 2018s. The non-nav 8.4 cannot have nav added, hence why the button combo doesn't work.
