Yep, I did. Very handy. You can also display the map in your radio screen.

Two things:

Climate control - is there any way to set the default temperature to another setting? When in auto mode mine defaults to 21C at each start up, not the last cabin temperature set.

Block Heater- anyone given any thought to where they will run the cord? High? Low? I'm trying to determine best configuration so as not to have cord get gummed up in the engine somewhere.

Hey guys. I want to get my Husky X-Act floor mats on order as well as a cargo liner. I was going to order through KBCarStuff.com. For model year selection is the 2014 the same as the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Thanks!

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

About the block heater cord. I did not put it in my order (trying to add it). I cannot tell from the photos if it is simply connected to terminals in or near the power distribution box. Is it trivial to install if the cord is obtained?

Seriously doubt it is just a cord addition. On the engine block heaters I have had they go into a freeze plug and then routed out to the engine compartment area. If they do put the block heater in without a cord that would be excellent saving 85 bucks.
On the Forward Collision System I have learned at least for the way I drive to use the shortest setting (1 bar) to not activate premature braking. Also you can expect when people pull in front of you where you begin to brake just in case that the system will take over. Also when someone is turning ahead or you left or right and doing it slowly it will brake. You cna tell you are fine but the object has been detected and the system will brake. All of these system whether electro-optical or RF work the same regarding the algorithm used for braking.
Wonderful system and my experience it is always on just in case we are not attentive.
Hope this helps some...

At least it takes two separate button pushes on the fob to start the car or open the tailgate, which should reduce that possibility. But only one press to turn on the panic alarm.
Let me know what you hear. I have now set off the panic alarm twice when the fob was in my front pocket.

I had a slight smell of very hot metallic coating even while seating inside the cabin. The smell was stronger when I parked in my garage. This is not the "cat piss" smell. When I finally shut down the engine you could hear click-click-click noises of a contracting very hot metal coming from the undercarriage. I just passed 400mi on the odometer, so I'm assuming this is an active regen.
Willx had a regen cycle. When it happens, you will have a red ring around the speedometer, and somewhere - not sure if it is EVIC or Uconnect screen, it will say regen in process - drive at highway speeds.

FYI, it is just a cord, all the diesels have the engine block heater already installed. This was confirmed a few months back when ordering started by the good folks at JNAP.

As for the FCW, I was actually talking about the forward collision warning, not the adaptive cruise. I just thought it was funny that it kicked in like it did when I didn't feel there was ever any danger. I was thinking about changing to near but reading SJandL's recent adventures I guess I'll leave it alone for now and just keep an eye on it.

As far as the adaptive cruise, I finally got to use that today on my drive into work and it was flawless. I like the readout in the bottom right corner that show what you have it set at and the speed, very useful. Will take some time getting use to it slowing down and realizing I was actually going faster then the guy in front of me so I need to move over and pick up the pace again

One last thing, not a fan of eco mode so far. Seems you have to mash the gas to get it to go and then a couple seconds later it catches up with second gear and boy do she go then. Will have to get use to it but right now I drive more with it off when in town and my MPG's are showing. Still just under 200 and sitting about 20.7MPG from delivery. Guessing that will go up quite a bit as some of it has been idling time.

The outlet end of the preinstalled cord is tied to itself just behind the power distribution box.

Was discussed in earlier thread that the block heater is on all CRDs, so all you are paying for is for the cord to be connected. I do not remember it getting beyond guessing as to whether you could install a cord later on as a DYI or even if a dealer could do it. A call to your dealer might confirm. However, this is so new I wonder if they will know.

We will find out as mine was ordered with the block heater option but the cord wasn't installed. The dealer is trying to rectify the situation. We'll see how it goes. I know that Milous and others were unable to find a part number to order it. Worst case they should be able to get it from the factory. Hopefully they don't have to take 1/2 the car apart to get to where the cord installs.

Got this on key fob jackets/covers. I sent them a picture of my key fob, so hopefully this is the correct item number. I think I'll order one or two, they're pretty cheap:::
Kirk, Please see item ddga76... Yes, it will greatly reduce accidental engagement of the control functions...
Thank You,

They've got lots of colors, even a camouflage. Think I'll order two, one "deep cherry red pearl coat" and the camo.

can anyone point me in the right direction, I noticed some trim missing? When I was drying the SFU off I noticed this. Anyone know a part number?
