Sirius Travel Link 430N

Does anyone that has the 430N have the "Sirius Travel Link" working? I called Sirius this morning and per Sirius I have Travel Link active on my account (actually it is the dealer account as they had already set it up), but following the instructions on page 115 of the 430N owners manual does not get the service. My 430N does not have the icon for the service that should be listed in the Menu screen. I believe the problem is in the software for the media center, but I wanted to know if anyone had it working?

Re: Sirius Travel Link 430N

I thought only the 730n did travel link.

No 730N does "Sirius Traffic" which is a different service.

Re: Sirius Travel Link 430N

Sirius traffic provides live traffic data

sirius traffic link provides things like movie data, weather, sports, gas station prices, ect...

i have the 430n and it does not have have either. IT is SUPPOSED TO HAVE sirius traffic link as shown in previous brochures. I thought maybe a software update would include this service. Milous looked into it and verified it was supposed to include it but cannot confirm why it is not available or if it will become available. Its not a big deal if it does not have it...but...you should get what they say you're supposed to get!

I have read other posts on this forum that said the same thing, but I have not seen anything in writing from jeep that said that. It does not say this in the user guide, or in the 430N owners manual that I can find. The manual clearly shows you how to use the feature and says nothing about it not being available on some 430N models. The 430N itself was late availability but is available now. The manual also shows you the screen that shows you have this service, but when I check the screen on my unit it says I don't have Sirius Travel Link. Sirius however says I do have it. Something is clearly wrong here, and I have sent an e-mail to jeep customer service asking for help in this matter. I will post there reply if I get one.

Believe what you want, but Travel Link is not enabled on any 430N radios at this point.

SIRIUS shows it as "active" because the "free" 1 year subscription for satellite radio and travel link is technically active from the date of purchase.

It's not some grand conspiracy or anything. There is only one "model" of 430N radio... the travel link feature just isn't enabled at this time.

Hopefully Jeep customer service will give you some sort of response though.

Re: Sirius Travel Link 430N

The whole radio head unit thing seems to be a bit of a disaster.

I'm still waiting for Chrysler/my dealer to tell me how and when they are going to get me the 430N that was listed on my sticker. My Limited arrived with a 430 and we've been going back and forth for almost a month now.

Seriously?

That's ridiculous...

Re: Sirius Travel Link 430N

Did anyone get a response to this or figure this out?

I am having the exact same problem. Picked up my Jeep on Saturday, dealer says it has travel link, the radio is the 430N. Took the Jeep back on Monday for some sounds in the door sill, which were resolved (loose screw), also told them that I did not get a travel link soft button, per the manual. When I picked up the Jeep yesteday, they said to call Sirius and activate travel link, of course that does not work.

Re: Sirius Travel Link 430N

I am still waiting for jeep to respond to my e-mail. Looks like they don't respond very quickly or maybe at all.
