UConnect 8.4A AM/FM/BT/Access

I promised that I searched for the answer, but I found nothing.

Are there any downsides to getting UConnect 8.4A AM/FM/BT/Access and then paying for NAV hookup? Except for the cost of course. Any missing features, etc...?

Just wondering because I changed my search parameters on the Jeep website to this and I am now seeing a bunch of vehicles in my area that have the option (ORA II) I want that did not show up before.

Many thanks.

Yes there is differences in the navigation. Why would not just pay the lesser amount for the nav unit than paying more later?

Thanks SnoFire.

Do you know what the differences are? Are they major?

I don't understand the second part of your post.

Off the top of my head, you lose 3D map options and HD radio.

According to WK2jeeps


"The dealer activated navigation does not include Sensor-assisted GPS or 3D features"
