Re: WK2 DownUnder

Guys,
how long does it take for the dealer to issue an order number that can be tracked through production? Mines been on order a couple of weeks but I don't want to hassle the dealer if the order number takes a while.

Cheers.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I would have thought 2-3 weeks.
Why not ask Chrysler Aust in Melb? Their customer relations should be able to give you the correct information.
The thing is, how can the dealer give a delivery timeframe if they dont have an Order number?

Oops, spoke too soon about the satnav correcting itself.

This afternoon I left work at Parramatta to go home to Kellyville,,which is basically north though Baulkham Hills and Castle Hill.

Satnav showed me at Silverwater heading east through Canada Bay cross the Parramatta River, ( bonus, I didn't realise the overland was amphibious!) up through Ryde and finish at Lane Cove. It wasn't following any roads, just heading cross country.

Both times it has gone haywire started in the correct location. I've punched in an address to go to and when I have detoured from the planned route, it hasn't rerouted, but shown me elsewhere. It can't be poor satellite signal, both occasions agave been bright sunlight and cloudless and even if it was a poor satellite signal, that wouldn't account for what it is doing. I thought initially it must be case of recalibrating to Australia from the USA, but it has been four days now and it was working fine yesterday and this morning.

Anyone else had a similar problem?

It also classes Kellyville and Castle Hill as Baulkham Hills for some strange reason, even though it lists the post codes for each suburb correctly

You need to do some testing. Such as can you see whether you have adequate satellite signals? You need at least 3 sats to get an accurate position. Does the display show bars for sats it sees?

If you are sure you have sat reception, are you able to see Lat/Long coordinates? if so, do these compare to the maps?
If the Lat/Long are correct, but the map is not, then you know it isnt a GPS issue, but a map overlay one.

Next, you could try doing a reset. If there is no way to do this on the screen, you may need to disconnect the battery for 15mins.

Failing all that, it may need the dealer to intervene. They can do a reset through their computer.
Let us know how you go?

I am just up the road from you if you need further assist. (The Ponds/Rouse Hill)

Thanks Ally

Does yours show Rouse Hill as Baulkham Hills out of interest?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Mine is still on the High Seas, so I won't be able to test anything for another 6-8 weeks

Yay!! Just got the VIN for my GC that I ordered in December and found out it's on the ship Talisman, with an expected dock in Brisbane on 24/04! Does anyone know how long it will be before I take delivery? I live in Brisbane...

Can take 2-3 weeks after the Talisman berths. Depends on quarantine issues found. The Talisman has just departed Savannah, and now heads to Galveston Texas.

Wow Texas adds more time. Our ship went from savannah straight to the panama canal... You are lucky in Brisbane the turnaround time for compliance is only around 5 days
