Trajcem, I see what you mean. Did a search on Wikipedia.
I had a 2007 Hyundai Santa fe diesel (loved it) and it come with a tape deck slot (SF made in USA) so US equipment requirements are sometimes behind the world standards.

DAB+
WorldDMB, the organisation in charge of the DAB standards, announced DAB+, a major upgrade to the DAB standard in 2006, when the HE-AAC v2 audio codec[11] (also known as eAAC+) was adopted. The new standard, which is called DAB+, has also adopted the MPEG Surround audio format and stronger error correction coding in the form of Reed-Solomon coding. DAB+ has been standardised as ETSI TS 102 563.
As DAB is not forward compatible with DAB+, older DAB receivers can not receive DAB+ broadcasts. However, DAB receivers that will be able to receive the new DAB+ standard via a firmware upgrade went on sale in July 2007. If a receiver is DAB+ compatible, there will be a sign on the product packaging.
DAB+ broadcasts have launched in several countries like Switzerland,[12] Malta, Ireland, Italy, Australia and Germany. Malta was the first country to launch DAB+ in Europe. Several other countries are also expected to launch DAB+ broadcasts over the next few years, such as Hungary and Asian countries, such as China, Vietnam and Japan, and the U.S. If DAB+ stations launch in established DAB countries, they can transmit alongside existing DAB stations that use the older MPEG-1 Audio Layer II audio format, and most existing DAB stations are expected to continue broadcasting until the vast majority of receivers support DAB+.[13]

DMB
Main article: Digital Multimedia Broadcasting
Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) and DAB-IP are suitable for mobile radio and TV both because they support MPEG 4 AVC and WMV9 respectively as video codecs. However, a DMB video subchannel can easily be added to any DAB transmission, as it was designed to be carried on a DAB subchannel. DMB broadcasts in Korea carry conventional MPEG 1 Layer II DAB audio services alongside their DMB video services.
Norway, South Korea and France are countries currently broadcasting DMB.

Thinking of starting a MY15 thread, to discuss why Jeep Aust are keeping quiet about it, and when we can expect it to be shipped.
MY2015 will start production in about 58 weeks. Shipping will start first week of August, 2014. No idea if AU will get the '15 Summit, just speculation at this time. They should hit AU showrooms in October/November 2014.

Thats fantastic Milous m8.

Now, what are the MY2015 upgrades, the improvements, the variations, the colours, the radios, the nav system, the engines, the 14 speed auto is coming out I hear (11 forward and 3 reverse speeds!!).

And will the MY15 have those vibrating heated seats too?? You know the ones with the tan Mongolian Yak hide.

And will the Oberon be bringing this lot too Downunder??

And does Chrysler/Fiat/Jeep/Dodge/Ram/Alpha Romeo Australia (If they still exist then) know about it?

Ohhhh Noooo!!!

I cant stand it!!

I'm orff to see my shrink right now!!

Coming Allypally??

Now I will have to change it to the MY16 thread.

Im feeling we should start a class action against Jeep for planning a MY15 model.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Let's hope that the sat nav works on the new Jeep. It certainly doesn't on our Nov 2012 Overland. As an option at a cost of $2800 - a total waste of money. You can get lost without the Jeep sat nav - so why spend money to get lost using the Jeep sat nav???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

So to the counterpoint. My dealer finally told me why my Deep Cherry Red Limited CRD has been stuck in "Inspection" for 6 weeks so far (thanks Milous!!) and in his view I won't be able to drive the car I ordered December 1 to at best September if all goes really well. That fits with some honest feedback from 4 other Jeep dealers in 3 states re priorities for the ship spots. I have now formally had enough. On the weekend I test drove the new Range Rover Sport at $130K and would have bought in frustration except I didn't like the air suspension, and went back to my Jeep dealer who gave me a good price on a last silver 13 Limited he had in stock. So next week after fit out I have a 13 to drive with the specially selected in advance JGC14 Qld number plates I bought months ago. Talk of the 15 model just has me screaming to get away from any upgrade time. By the way Range Rover have reliable 4 months delivery from order which blows out to 12 months when THEY do their upgrade next year!
So who knows a good way to source bits and pieces like mats etc directly from US?

Best wishes to all you zealots out there. At my retired age I just don't have the courage to wait another 5 -7 months after already waiting 5 so I can have a car to drive again.
