Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

If I remember right you've gotta kind of pry it up in the front, you might need a screwdriver.

Slide the seat forward and lift the access panel from the rear.

Super Sexy Electric Speedo: If you have the 430N (might work with the other nav radio), if you touch the box that displays your speed (when on map) it will bring up another screen that shows an odometer, speedometer on the left, average moving speed, average speed (includes stopped), and fastest speed driven. - Luckrider


This is great! And gives altitude too.

Don't "hang your hat" on the altitude feature. It showed me below sea level when I was at about 250 feet above sea level. Not close enough for government work.

Death Valley? Lol!

I'm not sure we can blame Jeep. I've had GPS devices report I am off the road several hundred feet in a metro area before. Sometimes this occurs when the satellite signals are reflecting off of something or not locked on to an adequate number of signals due to terrain or buildings. If the locked satellites happen to be low on the horizon, hills can mess things up

You are correct. I was on the bridge of a small Coast Guard cutter a couple of years ago and was looking at their huge Garmin. I asked the crewman why mine showed me driving in a field sometimes when I was on the Interstate. He said, "We don't have those kind of problems. Come out and look up." He pointed to a 6 foot external GPS antenna!

Just did a quick measurement of the box

H - 7 inches
W - 11 inches
D - 10 inches

That's a real nice size spare storage area.

Sure enough I looked in the back storage compartment and there is a funnel with the rest of the spare tire and jacking stuff.
I can't imagine ever having to use it when you get 500 miles to a tank and a few low fuel warnings.

I would add it to the list in the original post but for some reason your not allowed to edit your own post after a few days it seems.
With regards to the funnel, I didn't see a sticker on the inside of the gas door, so I might be in the ones for 2011 and 12 but not for 13

Does the '13 have a capless filler? If not, I don't think it would have the funnel.
