Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Run a few more test than that Alan. There are several routes my stand alone GPS units with full update less than 6 months old still screw up.
Giving routes that make no sense if you know the roads, but are done as the roads are a little larger in size.
See if it still just makes plane stupid, wildly crazy routes like your YouTube video.

Lots of people get lost following current GPS models silly route guides.

When I plot Allypally's route on my hand held Garmin, it picks the green (short) route on both shortest and fastest planning settings. Google maps also picks this route.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Just thought I would add another anecdote to the recent "fix"
Returning from Wollongong to Sydney (heading north) last weekend. Turned on the Nav clicked the TAKE ME HOME, and halfway up Mt Ousley, the system blurted out "MAKE a U TURN", which would have had me going south again. Thought for a second that maybe I had moved home without knowing it?
Can't recall if I paid more than $2 for this system. If I did, I was ripped off. It truly has to be the worst performing navigation system in the universe.

Was booked in this morning for the update after being told they had the disk. No prizes for guessing but after taking time off work to get it done disk not for my Vin. Now told it will be here next month. Another call to Chrysler now to update case. Absolutely useless.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

That is weird.
From what I have learnt, each dealer gets 1 disk. That disk is good for all MY111, and MY12's.
The way the process works is, dealer gets your car and inserts disk. Install program displays your VIN. Dealer phones Navteq and supplies the VIN, and Navteq respond with a code. Dealer inputs that code, and program does the install.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

So from what others are telling me the "fix" is a dud, so I spent $149 on a Garmin 2597 today to do the job of the useless Jeep Navigation System. Free lifetime maps, lane guidance, add your own Points of Interest and way points, etc, etc, etc.
Loaded up Camp 7 (try that on the Jeep system) and I am now ready to go on my next Caravan trip.
Oh yeah, one other thing. Bunnings is now 6 Klms away not 3300 Klms.

With the rate that bunnings are being built I'm pretty sure everyone has one 6km away. So your Garmin might be just guessing.

LOL. But, it appears to be a much more accurate guess than Navteq.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Well my dealer rang me yesterday and told be the disk hadn't arrived. Now the dealer acknowledges that they're being treated as mushrooms too. Shona is now permanently unavailable. I'm sure now there is no fix, all the stories have just been delaying tactics in the hope that Overland owners will lose interest and buy alternate GPS devices.
I believe under Australian consumer law a purchased item has to work as described or the customer is entitled to a refund. I'm going to ask for a refund.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Latest report. I've been to the dealer and suggested that the time has come to move on to the next step. It's obvious that Chrysler Jeep Australia have no intention of addressing this problem. The service staff can't give us any sensible answers because they too are in the dark. So I've asked the management for
1. a fix, or if they can't fix it in a reasonable time
2. a replacement GPS, or if they can't fit a later model GPS into my dash then
3. a replacement dash or
4. if they can't do that then a replacement vehicle or
4. a refund of my purchase price.
This is how it would go if it was any other commodity so I can't see how cars can be treated any differently.
The manager expects to have some information for me by early next week. We'll see how long it takes before they realize there's a legitimate claim being made.

Re: Jeep Navigation System Fail

Worth reading for those taking legal action.
Anybody know the outcome of the mediation case last week? I would expect Jeep to demand confidentiality of any settlement but worth asking.
For what it's worth I believe a legal action or fair trading claim that was made on behalf of all of us would get a quicker result than numerous individual claims. Not sure if fair trading allows that or not.
