Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

Sorry to tell you this but I doubt your Jeep has the option. I special ordered my Jeep - Limited with the Off Road II and LuxII package. I had also ordered the upgrade Nav 8.4AN. However, when the car arrived there was no Nav. The dealer (Giuffre Jeep AKA Bay Ridge Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram) - they are the worst don't ever use them) told me not to worry and that a simple software update would take care of it. Then when the turn displays wouldn't work they had me bring it in so they could look at it. Long story short it took 2-months for me to figure out they ordered the wrong radio/head unit. I have the 8.4A and not the 8.4AN. Major differences between the two. And for what ever reason in Chryslers wisdom the head unit can not ever be swapped out for another one. Not even for an aftermarket unit. You also won't HD radio, have traffic in your navigation, 3D graphics, you have 8GB internal storage rather than 16GB and you can't get weather, ski reports, gas station pricing, and a few other things that the 8.4AN has.

Realizing that sucks, I've been there and I'm sorry for you. Also, it was probably not an error.

That is not correct. You should try a different dealer.
I had the 8.4a both times and both times the feature worked. Also, my 8.4a was replaced last month and per Chrysler's instructions, I got a 8.4an. And it works great and I am enjoying all the other benefits u mentioned above. So if you have proof u requested the 8.4an when ordering, push back on the dealer. and if u PM me, I will give u my dealer info and RO# and ur techs can call them (surly I had a star case if Chrysler techs were involved, right?) The turn by turn is supposed to work and this is ur chance to get ur 8.4an u requested due to the malfunction.

At first I was the only one who had encountered this problem on my 2nd jeep (newer build) but now I know of 3 other people.

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

It's at the dealer today -- hoping they can fix it, but after the comments here not sure it will be easily fixed. Tech that drove me to work said they'd done lots of head unit replacements in the JGCs. This dealer is only about a year old.

Incidentally, my 3.6 2014 JGC had the navi added at the dealer and it had no issues. Showed up every time in the dash and the option was clearly available under the display section of the UConnect.

Yeah, that scrolling down has bitten me a few times. The "thumb" control doesn't stand out that much. Not a lot of queues on the screen that there is "More...".

Did you ever get the turn by turn to show up in the evic. I have the same problem. Can't find it anywhere in the settings.

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

Hello everyone, I had the same the same problem as well. I was looking through the settings for the check box. I did not find it as well and I gave up looking. Then the other day, I turned on the nav and entered an address to go to. I started driving and a few turns later, the next turn direction showed up inside of the speedometer! I did not check any box and yet it showed it. I showed a t intersection with a red arrow in the direction and also I believe the distance until the turn. For those with the problem of not finding the check box I suggest entering an address and start driving, the directions should come up in the evic then.

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

I have not had any success with the dealer yet -- they were checking with the Jeep reps and didn't get back with me. Stopped by the other day to get an appointment -- the adviser who helped me before apparently has been sacked. No wonder he didn't get back with me.

Have an appointment on Friday and will let you know. I'll try entering an address again -- have tried before with POIs with no luck. I'm sharing with them this info from the board. Thanks everyone for their help!

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

I did a hard reset and it was in the nav menu. I went to start the car an hr later and it's was no longer in the nav menu but the nav turn by turn is working on the evic now.

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

In an 8.4an, you set that option when you are in Nav. It is not done in EVIC. May be the same in 8.4a

1-Turn on Nav
2-Select 'Options'
3-Select 'Settings'
4-Select 'Guidance'
5-Check 'Turn by turn in gauge cluster'

Did all that and there is no box to check that says that.

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

Ack! Tried the hard reset and lost my NAV altogether. Anybody know how to get it back without a dealer visit?

Re: Navigation directions in EVIC?

Give it some time, if by Hard Reset, you mean the engineering one, then it can take a few hours to get back to normal.
