My Navi (6.5 unit) apparently has the latest software version 13.27. as listed here https://rsur.extra.chrysler.com/rsur/Uconnect.do

The maps updates are not yet listed here http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/Navteq-FiatEurope-Site/en_GB/-/GBP/View-Promo?Page=FiatLanding&SelectedMenuItem=LandingHome&


I've had two incidents that stand out.

1 - Miss representation of actual speed limit posted. (I was on a road with signs posted for 55mph, the Navi is telling me 35mph.)

2 - Sitting a 1/2 mile away from a Lowe's and it can't locate it. The navi wants to send me to one across town 20 miles away. I'm in LA, I expect better performance for a major metropolitan city.

Needless to say I don't feel very confident with the unit.

I'm hoping FIAT will have a software update to the 6.5 units to give us access to speed adjusted volume and surround sound, and update the GPS & map quirks I'm experiencing.
