Re: I thought the 730N RHR has a 30GB Hard Drive???

Thanks for the excellent explanation!!!

I plan on using my iPod in the armrest, so I don't need the hard drive space. Having said that, I find it completely disingenuous advertising on Chrysler's part to market the vehicle with a 30GB drive as a feature when only 11GB is available to the user.

Sorry I did not see this before.
Yes it is the 430N and has 28 Mb available even after the updates.

I've now got a month under my belt with the RHR.

I cannot get a 32GB USB flash memory drive to be recognized by the RHR using either USB interface.

16GB drives seem to work fine with occassional folder / filename read anomolies encountered after editing content on the drive. The anomolies show up as duplicate folder names, and some MP3 files won't play. It's almost as though the drive folder structure is getting cached by the RHR.

A workaround that clears up these anomolies in one shot is simply to change the volume label on the drive. That seems to force the RHR to do a hard rescan of the folder structure of the drive.

I also cloned the drive to a larger drive, and extended the music partition. When I put it back in, the RER interface still showed the exact amount of free space available as before even though I knew there was more and could verify it when mounted via a QNX OS. I stopped playing with it at that time and just decided to use my iPod. I have no idea if the RHR is the same way though.
Sounds like the capacity issue is an OS limitiation that still persists.

FWIW, I have a Pioneer AVIC Z-2 in another car. That unit is now 4/yrs old. 2yrs ago, a guy on the AVIC411 forum was selling the updated NAV setup Pioneer released for the Z3 on a 60GB PATA hard drive. The Pioneer units shipped with 30GB drives. I installed one in my Z2 but the 60GB drive yielded no increase in usable space.

If anyone gets a 32GB USB flash dirve to be recognized by the RHR, please advise !!

Re: I thought the 730N RHR has a 30GB Hard Drive???

I too just received a surprise when I was loading music into my new 730n RHR with the 30Gb hard drive. It would only take about 2800 mp3 songs. Turns out it only has a total of 10.5 Gb available space. I can understand the other OS & Apps taking up HDD space, but am disappointed in Chrysler's deception.

Re: I thought the 730N RHR has a 30GB Hard Drive???

I was told that the reason there is not 30Gb useable is because the Nav, Uconnect and the music coverart matching software (cannot remember the actual name) use up the additional space.
This is where the lost 18Gb of space is gone.

Which is strange, as the 430N has Nav, Uconnect, and the Gracenote music database and still has 28GB free.

Re: I thought the 730N RHR has a 30GB Hard Drive???

Sorry to awaken an old thread, but i found these posts especially useful. Thank you

I finally started to get around to throwing a large chunk of my music catalogue onto the 730n, and was amazed to find the 11g limitation. deceptive marketing, right up there with charging me extra for the on/road off road tires...and then delivering latitude tours...which are not even m&s rated.

That being said, getting a cheap iPod, which will be easier to synch is a great solution...and the wk2 is still a great value.

As a running change late in the 2011 model year the RHR HDD was changed from a 30GB (11 usable) to a 40GB (20 usable). All 2012 model year Grand Cherokee's have 40GB HDD's (40/20 for RHR and 40/28 for RHB).
