Hi from Adelaide Australia

Hi all,

Just purchased an MY14 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Diesel. Replacing my Land rover Discovery 3 (LR3) which was becoming unreliable.
Hope the Jeep gives me a good run. So far so good.

This is my third Jeep. used to have a CJ7 (77 I think) and a 99 Grand Cherokee V8.

Currently having a problem with the VR on the navigaation. It won't all me to enter addresses by voice. It tells me that the feature is not available in my country. i found some references to the issue but no solution so i guess I'll keep looking. I'm not entirely confident I'm searching correctly.

VR for Nav is not available on the Aust MY14. The feature only came out on the MY15+ vehicles.

Oh and welcome to JG

Thanks for the info. Interesting. So no software updates or anything can be installed? Surely its just a software thing.

Sorry I know this question should be asked in some other area. Too tired to think of where at the moment though

Well, unfortunately not Yev. I think it is actually a head-unit difference although no official confirmation of that.

There is a sort of a workaround that we use in a lot of situations which may be helpful.

Say for example you want to go from Sydney to Dubbo. You know how to get to Dubbo, so you don't need Nav Girl to bleet in your ear every few Kms to direct you from Syd to Dubbo but once you approach Dubbo you don't know the exact directions to the particular street so you need the directions then but you don't want to pull over, park and put the address in.

So, before you leave your driveway in Sydney, set the guidance. Then after you have confirmed it, cancel it.

It is then stored in Recent addresses (it appears at the top as the first one) and most importantly, can be accessed whilst your on the move.

So in this example, as you approach Dubbo, you or your passenger press Nav, Recent, select the top one (Dubbo address) and she kicks off from your current position to guide you to the address.

A workaround which helps out in some situations.

Other than that, you can always purchase Customtronix software which allows you to enter Nav destinations on the go.

Hello yevmeister:

These sat navs need constant software updates. When I purchased my Grand Laredo in May, I refused the sat nav option to be installed. They can be very costly, useless in many respects and a waste of money. Use your google maps on your smartphone for directions. They are more reliable and accurate. These sat navs are never 100% accurate.

Regards
Vostro Swift from Melbourne.
