Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Bloody BEAUTIFUL SJandL

C-o-n-g-r-a-t-u-l-a-t-i-o-n-s,....... and at loooooong last. I truly admire your patience as it has been such a long time coming for you; you must be so happy

I like that the '15 (Aussie) Diesels get those "new" exhaust tips, as it appears that the American (diesel) models continue with the '14 "round" type.

True Blue looks terrific :-) I'm very happy for you

My car is on the Tarago and should be in port Melbourne on the 24th of Nov. Is any other members car on the same boat. Below is the schedule from the Wallenius Wilhelmsen tracking site:

AUCKLAND NEW ZEALAND 16/11/2014

BRISBANEAUSTRALIA 20/11/2014

PORT KEMBLA AUSTRALIA 22/11/2014

MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA 24/11/2014

FREMANTLE AUSTRALIA 30/11/2014

Soon I'll be able to drive it instead of reading about it.
Your news is great news for me too joezep

I ordered on 31 July, so maybe our KL Limited is on the same boat as yours

Here's hoping

PS: Looking at other orders and schedules I was predicting a 6 Dec unload at Port Melbourne, but I like yours better

Just enter your vin No in the far right box and press the track tab. That will give all the info on what boat and time of arrival.

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Enjoy your ride SJandL . Love the colour that was my first choice but had to wait till after the new year, ended up getting the granite.

Thank you Marty and Joe. Indeed it has been a long wait.

I'm very happy - still sorting things out Uconnect wise with it.

Got home - started playing...

Phone paired fine (eventually) because (of course - duh stupid me) it wouldn't recognise the Uconnect connection that had already been established with WK2. I had to (obviously) set up a new one for the KL. So now I have two Uconnects showing on my phone under Bluetooth and they both say Uconnect.

Nav was set to Brazil... Yeah good but nah... so fixed that. It knows where Home is now at least.

Still playing though. I'm having fun... it's great.

ETA: I also like the big old globe that comes up on the Nav screen - a little like Google Earth. That's cool.

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

I have had my 14 Cherokee Trailhawk for about 6 weeks, absolutely love it.
I took it up the Vic high country on Cup day, 4x4 did extremely well, followed a family member up to Craigs Hut then up 16mile Jeep track and others it performed flawlessly, even with "road" tyres

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Welcome to JG RobnWallace. Our numbers are growing...

Have decided I like Stop/Start now that I'm getting used to it. I think I'll leave it on.

Tested 4-LOW today on our steepest slope here at home. I'm not sure of the degree of incline but the nose was pointed at the sky. (I really do not like being at that degree of angle in a vehicle - I find it very unnerving) but it took the incline without hesitation and husband was very happy with it.

I did the door trim today - I think it finishes it off very nicely. What do you think?

Hi joezep, thankyou for the Vessel Tracking info It appears that our Car is on the same Ship (TARAGO) as yours. Looks like that there are 252 KLs to be offloaded in Melbourne on the 24th November.

Also got Tracking info and a Build Sheet from Milous too. After reading some horror stories here I thought that there might be a problem or two with the Build, but according to the Build Sheet everything looks perfect. Many thanks to Milous for sending me that info so promptly

I don't get home from work until 20 December; so we'll take delivery sometime after then. Glad to know that our KL will be in Melbourne in a matter of days

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Great news Marty! You are gonna love it.

I have been playing with the VR for Nav today and although not 100% there yet, it is certainly ahead of the WK2 in functionality. (or I should say the MY14 WK2. Maybe the MY15 works like the KL)

Whilst it still won't recognise VR addresses ie: 'Find address 123 ABC Street, Suburb' it does recognise POI's using voice command.

So I can say (and I did to test) 'Find Nearest Book Shop' and it does and navigates there if you confirm navigation.

I tested 'Petrol Station', 'School', 'Restaurant' etc and it all works well - gives multiple entries for you to choose from if it finds more than one - all using VR.

I think that I read somewhere that it recognises the word destination (or something similar), rather than address (even though the icon on the screen for manual entry is labelled address), but I may have dreamt that.
