Seriously, no manufacturer's warranty would extend to that kind of installation, and I'd have laughed myself into asphyxiation if someone suggested they would. Deep down, did you believe that for even a microsecond?
Yeah I previously posted they open it up. They solder in a ribbon and add some module. The thing is turned on via volume control, then everything else is touch screen just like your Limited EXCEPT it is I Go Primo and works well.
When you have Jeep enthusiast dealer from Northern Beaches Suttons telling you there is a sat nav in the process of being added to Laredo and Jeep will cover it...what do you believe.
I found it highly dubious....YET...
They stated they'd done over 40 installs, nil problems.
One dealer in Victoria had on their website Aftermarket sat nav for Laredo upgrade FREE. Dealer told me they had to pull it down as they had to many sat nav units on back order and many uopset Laredo owners waiting for their install.
So dealers in NSW and Victoria were/are doing the installs....what would you think if you were told all was good.
Well for three months prior to signing up I pounded them and the supplier of the unit for info and confirmation it would not present an issue with Jeep.
All good from everybody.
So when I signed the contract I had the dealer add a clause that the sat nav would not affect the jeep warranty. Gutless tossers (oh thats a bit harsh) stated on the contract that "the sat nav unit will be supplied with 3 years warranty".
Thats not what I asked them for but thats what they thought would placate me.
So I pursued Jeep Australia on the same matter and at first they were telling me it was not a problem.
It was only after I asked them to put it in WRITING that they stated emphatically that they would not do that and that it would void the warranty.
So there you have it......No I did not believe them even for a micro second,
that is why I so aggressively sort out the truth.
I do not believe anything I am told by the dealer or Jeep Aust at this point in time because the goal post keep shifting.
If I wasn't such a toey prick and some easy walk all over me, fill me full of bull shyte type, then I'd have a cherry red GC with a Hi Tv sat nav unit in it ready to be picked up end of this month. AHHHHHHHH!
