Re: WK2 DownUnder

Our WK2 that has just been delivered has the 800 battery and according to the dealer the upgrade software has sorted the issue that was in earlier builds relating to the radio. Time will tell.......
I am keeping the keys away from the vehicle as well at night and as far as I can tell it is going to sleep, at least all lights go off and the display shuts down.

It probably gets unloaded at Port Kembla. Anyone else in the same 'boat' as me ?
The ship 'TAMERLANE' is unloading in Port Kembla now, my Overland is on that ship, due in Fremantle, 31st March.

Just a question out of interest, does the ships normally dock and unload around the country or is there generally one distribution port like the single port in the US they are picked up from?

Cheers for that. Mines ordered, no order number yet but told it will be built end of April and to expect it 3 months after that (Jul/Aug). Its a bugga that there is an identical one in NSW for the same price available now but I knew the long build time as I ordered it.

Well, I finally picked up my Overland yesterday, what a great car. The pre-delivery from the dealer was pretty ordinary to say the least, lots of smears on the paintwork and glass where product hasn't been wiped off properly. While it doesn't phase me too much, as I am getting a detailer to apply opti-coat and tinting during the week, it is a bit slack. In fairness though, the dealer only got it that morning and was trying to get it out to me the same day. Pre-delivery briefing consisted of "you probably know more about the car than we do, here's the keys". I was happy for that rather than be shown what I already knew. I got a set of books with it in a vinyl wallet that is too small for them, I wish I had kept the wallet from my outlander which was far better quality. I believe I have Jeep Assist with the warranty, but there is no card and it wasn't mentioned to me at delivery. The slush mats weren't in the vehicle but the salesman I was dealing with was off sick and the sales manager was on his day off, so I'm sure those little issues will be sorted when I speak to them. 45km on the clock BTW.

Driving home, I noticed the EVIC display shows your direction at the top of the display (S for South, NE for North East etc) nice touch I wasn't aware of. GPS put me somewhere in the middle of the ocean. I tapped poi nearby and the closest fish shop was in Karratha 6647 km away. This morning it appeared to have corrected itself initially and was showing the street I was driving to. I set a poi to navigate to which is when things got weird again. As I was driving from Lane Cove to North Parramatta, the Gps had be driving through bush land in a totally different direction. When I pulled up at North Parramatta it was showing I was somewhere around Hornsby. Anyone know how to calibrate the GPS? The only thing I can think of is it is not locating enough satellites to get a proper fix.

When I get home from kids sport I will devote a couple of hours to programming the unconnected and familiarising myself with the features. Initial fuel consumption after 100km around town is around 10.5 lt/100km

Damn predictive text, please ignore weird spelling in the last post (unconnected instead of Uconnect etc)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

If there is no configeration menu in the Navigation, where you input where you are, then you will simply need to let the nav run for an hour or so while it finds itself. Remember it has had a bit of a shock going to sleep in Detroit, and waking up in Sydney.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

SatNav is working fine now, recalibrates quickly if I take a detour. Really like the next turn showing up in the EVIC display.

Does the Satnav have a night mode for the display? I can't see anything in the manual.

There is a setting where you can choose, day, night or auto.
