Re: "nav ready???"

It sounds like your Jeep has the 8.4A (RA3) sound system. It's "NAV" ready in that your dealer (for about a $500 fee) can turn on the Navigation capability. In other words, NAV capability is inherent in that particular system, but it's not enabled from the factory.

The 8.4AN (RA4) comes from the factory with full navigation turned on. (with more features than the RA3) Unfortunately, Chrysler doesn't allow swapping of the radios on MY14 after manufacture.

It should be $595.00 I got it activated when I purchased my altitude a few months ago.

Call some other dealers. If you did find a way to activate it yourself, it would probably be considered theft of service. The dealer has to contact Chrysler for a code. Once activated it is always activated. You can't cancel it and move it to another car. It becomes linked to the vin.

That dealer is trying to gain a huge amount of profit there. The "list price" is $600 ($595) AFAIK, and many dealers will knock a few bucks off that for good customers. I do not believe it's possible to activate it without a dealer's computer...
