Too much for me, given that all I mostly do is listen to the news, although I do sometimes listen on my smartphone as well which is a nice feature. You can get just the basic radio service for $165/yr + taxes/fees without the other goodies (traffic, weather, on your mobile device, etc).

I told them that when I used to have XM on another device it was only about $8/mth. They came back and offered me the All Access for $119/yr + taxes/fees for a total of $141/yr. That's almost $100 savings. I decided to go ahead and do that. $10/mth for All Access is a pretty good deal. fyi, when you give them your credit card number they advise you that it will automatically renew next time unless you call to cancel, and at the higher normal price. So you might be able to go through this exercise again in another year and threaten to cancel if they don't keep the rate the same.

Bottom line, they'd rather get something from you than nothing, so it pays to negotiate.

Good job! I've had XM in both cars for several years and have done exactly the same thing you did. Successfully - until this year. I point out that I love Sirius/XM and would love to have it for a reasonable price, but since there's so many free music services I'm having a hard time justifying it unless they could offer me a better price. The guy this year basically told me if I didn't like the price, cancel.

I waited a few weeks and got someone else and did manage to get a better deal.

On another note I came across this: all properly equipped 2015MY Jeeps (sold after July 1, 2014) also come with a 5-year trial to SiriusXM Traffic and/or SiriusXM Travel Link. Jeep | SiriusXM Auto Dealer Resource Center

Emailed their help desk this week with the following:

Any information on the release timing for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee map updates? Your website tells me this "'Our records indicate you have the most recent map update for your vehicle. The next available update is scheduled for release in mid-October 2014. Please check back later.'" As we are pushing near the end of October now, will this update be launching soon?
Got this response:

"Thank you for inquiring about HERE Maps. The next release for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is scheduled for fall of 2014, subject to change.

If you need additional assistance, please send us your feedback by replying to this email.

Typical of the "helpful" customer service at Jeep/Chrysler I've received in the past. Given that it is already past the mid-October published release, you'd think someone would know when it is actually going to be released. I guess we'll just have to keep checking, and whoever finds it first can let everyone here know.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

For the extra money paid for the navigation system, you'd think they could update a couple of times a year. I purchased the jeep in early 2013 and the maps were already a year out of date. They have been pushing the update off for the past 4 months. With so much construction in my area over the past 2 years, the nav is almost useless.

Re: UConnect 8.4 - North America

Ever since I found Waze I have completely abandoned using my jeep navigation system.

If you haven't discovered Waze then you should check it out. Awesome "social GPS network".

It is now 2015, and the message no longer has a year. That's a bit ominous.
