OK. So its crap and as installed looks a the deck!!!!

Same happened with mine, but one day in the Bunnings car park got so peed off that I had a look whilst having a nicotine break.

You can push (rotate) the camera up (quite stiff so take care) so it actually provides some help rather than looking as the rego plate. Can now get my vehicle within about 6 inches of the wall when the light is good and the camera is actually "operating" (forget night ops!!).

As I said it's still crap overall but there is some improvement if you carefully "adjust" the camera angle. Have not yet figured how to pull it down so "be carefiull!!!

PS. Apologies for the crap photo quality, was at night and just jumped in to snap a shot but hope it helps. It must be a Chrysler camera!!

Regards

Adrian

hi salmo, go to the port of melb website and click on the swanson dock webcam. you can take control of the cam, zoom in, pan, etc. you can zoom in on the Taiko and also make out the jeeps in the holding yard that unloaded last night. hopefully yours is one of them, my srt is one of them and a couple of others on this forum also.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Here's the recall notice which has just hit the govt site. Funny because it is dated the 11th but I checked yesterday and it wasn't there.

Anyway, its there now - get thee to a dealership.

Fiat Chrysler Group

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Barboots, you say "Not that the promise of VR on nav is getting me anywhere in my efforts to sort that one out!" - what IS the status on VR as far as you know? Do Jeep Australia acknowledge it as a problem?
Thanks

It keeps going backwards, though I haven't pushed harder than ringing the 1800 number and requesting follow up. It's low stress case building as they continually fail to call me back. Once I've got several call recordings of this over a few months I'm just going to hand it to Consumer Affairs. I'm not willing to get all wound up over it.

Last discussion the statement that they were never to have VR on navigation came up again. I repeated the basis of my claim and was told that I would get a call back shortly. Of course that was weeks ago

Ciao,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi Steve
I just got my vr upgraded and when I tried the nav and asked it to navigate to home, it said it wouldn't navigate to an address in this country, then as I am driving along still playing with it, as it has never worked since I picked the car up, I asked it to phone someone and it replied navigating to home, next thing up comes the nav and off it went, yeh it happened by mistake but the capability is there and maybe an upgrade away.

Tim the nav has always been able to accept a VR command to :

- Become the active screen
- Show the map screen
- Navigate to home
- Cancel the route
- and something else I've forgotten

Address entry is the missing link, and POI entry would be a fair inclusion as well.

I decided that I will make some calls again today.

Cheers,
Steve

Sorry to bring up the reversing camera issue again, but just having my oil leak looked at and the service manager said, "is that a genuine reversing camera on your car?? It's horrible there's something wrong with it."

Did you ask him to speak clearly into the microphone?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Would you trust a road test report from this caravan magazine. (Caravan and Motorhome)

They cant even spell the bloody name right let alone report on it.

Or maybe there is a new model out called the JEEP GRAND JEROKEE!!
(Some say its the........wait for it...................the MY15 !!!!!!!)

Hi Robbo
Thanks for the info.
There are few Granite smudges so I'm pretty one of them will be mine.
Cheers.
