No, no arguments. You just seem to constantly be telling people that they are wrong in their thinking and pointing out exacting details about why they are wrong, yet no one can question the details of your statements.

From my original comment, everyone should do whatever they like. I just don't understand why you keep saying people should do whatever but if they get internal NAV they are wrong.

I have said numerous times that I use both types of the systems and both are good. I like garmin, but it has it's limitations too.

Edit: Deleted my unneeded comments!

I will use my iPhone with Navigon preloaded maps just to irritate the 'innies'

Or maybe I'll get the built-in unit to irritate the 'outies'.

But you are clearly much smarter than I am and know everything about the new NAV system, the updates and the costs involved so..... yes please ignore me I offer you nothing you are not already more educated on.

I will make sure I read every one of your posts so I can keep up on what is really going on with my in vehicle NAV system.

Thank you!
Now you are stooping to personal attacks.

You know what you are likely correct, that was likely a little much on my part and I will go back and edit my prior post.

Really all I am trying to say is that yes the in vehicle NAV is far from perfect and I know this very intimately.... however it still serves me well. You on the other hand sound like you are being served by the apps that you are using (or Garmin) so likely don't want the in vehicle NAV.

My Stance was that the OP had some questions and we cannot overrule the fact that based on his needs the built in one might be nice for his use. It seemed to me that you were making some finite observations about an update program that has not even been released. Chrysler is still looking at the options so it is a little up in the air.

So you are completely correct, I should not be making it personal but I would also appreciate an acknowledgement that this system is not set in stone. You may take this as my apology though, personal attacks are not where I want to be.

Will,

The reason? I like nav apps like Waze that offer a social element to navigation with features such as user hazard reporting, user map editing, gas price editing, etc all wrapped up together. The catch is that Waze isn't always accurate in its routing suggestions, and therefore I also like the reliability and ease of use that comes from a system like the Uconnect 8.4an. So...yeah, I'm that guy....

I actually did.... When I was testing a Cadillac NAV system (1800 miles worth). I needed both and in this case the Garmin kept me alive, but the feedback I gave caused a recall. Guess they frown on left turns from the rest stop on the interstate!

Will,
Will,

Apology accepted. No worries.

And yes, in reading the OP's original post, it appears that he wants built-in Nav. It took some digging for me to understand the current UConnect map/update software process. If the OP understands that process and finds it acceptable, then the balance of pluses and minuses work for him and it's not even remotely reasonable for me to question his choice.

Regarding the built-in Nav, the features are great. My only concern is that the old system is updating the maps an software once ever 1-2 years does not work for me. A stand-alone Nav has other some benefits too. For me, having weighed the pros and cons, the balance tips to the stand-alone side.

To be clear... If they change the map download process so that you can download updates from the internet to your computer every few months at a reasonable cost, I think the balance for me would tip back to the built-in option.

Please understand that this is NOT theoretical for me. If the reality of the 2014 Cherokee matches the positive press and rumors, I'll buy one. At that point, I'll have to make the final, tough decision - built-in or standalone. I'm trying to make a good decision for my needs.

Regards,

Dan.

p.s. There is one final option - get both. Some people will argue that it's good to cross check anyway. Extra cash going out, though.

Re: 8.4 questions?

Gents,
Just wondering if anybody can help me to find out the answers on my questions. I am from Ukraine (it is in Europe if somebody does not know). I am about to order JGC 2014. But I don't want to buy it from official vendors in Ukraine, due to different reasons (price, options, no 2014 models available yet). I want to order it from US and then ship it to Ukraine. Going to buy Limited version with Luxury Group II. That one does not have option to get NAV preinstalled, NAV ready only. I would not mind to pay that $700 or so to get NAV activated, but... as you can see I will buy it from US seller, and he will activate the US NAV. Now, the question is on to US activated NAV will I be able to install Europe maps? Is it going to work?
Another thing is FM radio. In US you guys use only odd frequencies on the radio. In Europe we use both odd and even ones. Again, maybe someone knows if there is the way to change the US radio standard to EU one. Is it possible to change somewhere on settings? Or it does need reprogramming or replacement of the unit?...
Any advise will be very appreciated.

Regards,
Yuriy.
