Re: WK2 DownUnder

That must be on the Tamerlane, which is due in Melb on 28th. It took a little longer as it spent 4 days tied up in Port Kembla

You rock!
Tamerlane was expected to dock at Appleton Dock an hour ago. Should I go down and wave? Im guessing its about 4w before I get my hands on it - sound about right?? (also getting tow bar and aftermarket leather).

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just curious (and apologies if this has been covered already), If I have an ETA of July / August, would I be expecting a MY13 plate or are they still MY12?

Thanks!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

August delivery is MY12. That means it would be built in June. Production starts in July for MY13 and due for relaese in Sept (USA).
I would think that you won't see MY13's in Oz until late October at the earliest

Re: WK2 DownUnder

and generally if you order a 2011 they will run mixed years on the line until all the previous model orders are built.

I read on another forum that Jeep sorts out the issue with the obsolete front recovery hooks that were deleted on MY12's with a design modification that introduces a further structural change to the front end. This allows the recovery hooks (supplied as a stowed item) to be fitted as required with hooks rated for true recovery and not just towing that has limited the MY12 as a true off-roader and upset many owners. I read the design mod may come into affect for the Australian market on vehicles manufactured from April.
PS, with a 3rd Qtr delivery, can I ask when you signed up for yours and if you have an order number yet.

Cheers.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Did anybody see the new GC advertisments during TOP GEAR last night. Very tantalising. Just wish they'd shown a little bit more of the car than ballerinas strutting around moody Parisian studios but tantalising all the same!!

Looks like we both are on the same 'boat'. But I haven't received any indication from my dealer that the delivery could be next week.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have to say I have had a similar problem with the GPS on mine. I was in Silverwater about 3 weeks back and it had me driving through the water there, that was the first time I had noticed the problem (had the car for 6 months now) and then the other day in Rose Bay it had me driving though the harbour... So not sure what is going on as it definitely does reset itself at some point. Took mine in for its first service the other day and told them of this, they claimed it should be fine now with the software updates, but I'm not too sure I believe them, guess time will tell...

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

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think that what people are seeing is dead reckoning.
This is where the satnav uses the last known location, current direction and vehicle speed to calculate the position. It does not use the roads, just speed and direction.
This will usually happen if you come out of an underground carpark or have a lot of tall buildings around. The satnav can take a few minutes to find enough sats to get a fix.
