JGC Vehicle Info Smartphone App

I know a lot of Aussie buyers have been pissed off with the lack of owners manual supplied with the vehicle. The Yanks get a DVD with the manual on it and there is also a smartphone app available for both the android and Iphone which function as essentially an owners guide. Unfortunately the Iphone app is only available through the US Itunes store and you will need a US account, which is no big deal to set up. Not owning an Android, I am not sure if the same restrictions apply. I have been using the iphone app for several months and it is certainly worthwhile downloading, albeit it is for the 2011 US version and only covers the petrol versions.

Iphone Version

1) set up a US iTunes account by following these instructions:

http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2010/09...tunes-account/

2) Download the app for free

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jeep-...377205682?mt=8

IPad Version

Freely available from the Australian itunes store, but it is just a glorified brochure, not an interactive app like the iphone version

http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/jeep-...384850197?mt=8

Android Version

Looks like the iphone version, don't have an Android so I can't comment

Pity Jeep hasn't seen fit to make a smartphone app for us Aussies.

Cheers

Yes. You said "pity" referring to Jeep Aust. As if they pity us.
My opinion is they don't give a damn.

I haven't decided whether it is indifference or incompetence on the part of Jeep. It may not be the fault of the local operation, I would think that Detroit would be dictating to them, not vice versa. Whatever and whoever is responsible, it is a piss poor way to introduce new customers to the brand and retain old ones.

Re: JGC Vehicle Info Smartphone App

I got an owners manual and service book when I got mine on Thursday. I wasn't expecting one but was pleasantly surprised. Anyone else get a manual. Oh it is a proper manual as well not a printed one stuck together

I should pick mine up this week. It will be interesting to see if this is the norm or a lucky dip. I think in the US, the yanks get a DVD in lieu of a printed manual.

Re: JGC Vehicle Info Smartphone App

I really do not understand why Jeep au have not just adapted the USA iphone app. It would be handy and an easy to keep it updated.
One day car companies will get it.

Agree. The lack of printed manual would be justified if they were providing us with the DVD and app like the US, but they haven't been. Telling people to download a softcopy from the net and print it themselves just looks cheap and doesn't do anything to enhance the company image.

Re: JGC Vehicle Info Smartphone App

I'm hoping to get a manual from the dealer, you need something in the car, or an iPhone app or something handy to refer to on the side of the road

For anyone who's interested in the PDF owners manual albeit from the US site... 5th edition (last modified 1st February 2012)
2012-Grand_Cherokee-OM-5th.pdf

and the User's Guide 2nd edition (last modified 18 October 2011)
2012-Grand_Cherokee-UG-2nd.pdf

go here: http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/

but no CRD info

I'll be getting that iPhone app though for sure
