im surprised I havent received a "renew" notice yet? mines up on 7/19 (not that I Will...)

Don't worry, it'll come about 2 weeks prior, and then about every week for 3 months. They disguise it in all sorts of envelopes and different colors towards the end. Then they back off a bit. Mine ran out in March but I still get an offer every 3-4 weeks.

And I agree, it sounds terrible.

Reception in the GC is horrible compared to my Wrangler. While listening to Sirius in the GC the radio is instant though when you turn it on and changing channels. In the Wrangler it would take 2ish minutes at startup before anything would happen and then 3 second or so delay on channel changes. However the Wrangler rarely cut out whereas in the GC it happens all the time.

I'm definitely not happy about this seeing as I just picked up my 2014 Jeep SRT YESTERDAY!

Has anyone complained to Jeep about this and got them to give them the 5yrs?

That IS what the press release promises... no Radio, just Data for 5 years.

Great idea!

Retarded...simply retarded. Way to alienate your customers Chrysler.



With all the problems many have had with their early build 2014 Grand Cherokees, Chrysler should extend this free 5 years of SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link to ALL 2014 GC owners with the 8.4AN radio.

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

One of the moderators from another Cherokee forum said his dealer told him that all 2014 Grand Cherokees will be grandfathered in to this due to all the radio problems. Sounds like mere speculation to me, but would be nice if Chrysler did this. Here's a link to the post, but I wouldn't get your hopes up:

Fingers crossed! Thanks for the hopeful news.

If Chrysler does NOT include ALL 2014 Grand Cherokees, we should ALL call Chrysler Customer Care and lodge complaints about this...I know I will be.

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

I can't help but wonder if this is an attempt to start motivating/maintaining a revenue stream. With Apple/Google moving into the auto space what is the long-term value of Travelink (or in-dash NAV -- (e.g.; garmin maps, etc.). UConnect has the same risk... why pay for a service that Apple/Google will provide for mostly free (at face value anyway). This 'free' stuff may help maintain sat radio subscriptions in favor of Pandora, iTunes Radio, etc.

Be curious to see which one of the big-guys (Apple, Google, Microsoft) tries to buy Sirius for satellite distribution (or just decides to launch their own satellites).

While I would have liked to have gotten the 5 years, you can't really blame Chrysler......it's not like they shouldn't be able to come out with things on newer models, LOL, c'mon people, every model year is going to have an enhancement over the next.

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

I would decline the offer. I pretty much never use Travel Link it's too clumsy and slow and the Sirius Traffic completely screwed up my navigation taking me down every little side street for the smallest amount of traffic. Now that I turned it off my GPS works great.
