Smile New Here!

Hi Everyone,

I'm a very recent member, I've been reading lots of posts out of excitement for the new GC and I have to say that this seems to be an awesome community. I live in Montreal (Canada) and have a 2005 GC with the V8. This is my first Jeep and I bought it new when it came out. The last few years I've been thinking of changing for something else but I couldn't find anything that I really liked in my price range. Then they announced the 2011 GC, hold on let me put 1 of these LOL. I've been obsessed and checking for new information everyday. This site being one of my main sources. I still haven't ordered one yet because I can't get a straight answer on pricing or options from my dealership. I want to order an Overland 4x4 in either Blackberry, Black, or Mineral Grey with either Black or Saddle interior. Hemi obviously and maybe the 730N (I believe that's what the higher end "media console" is called) maybe someone can tell me if I really need it, the only real difference I can see besides I guess a better quality screen is that it's motorized to insert a cd, dvd or whatever behind the screen. So excited for the QL, I drove a Range Rover for 2 weeks with air suspension and it was a lot of fun (especially in Canadian winters).

Anyways I'm rambling on, thank you everyone for such an amazing community it will be great to get to talk to you all about Jeeps and such!

Welcome Spoon, I recently ordered the Overland 4x4, Hemi, 730N and can't wait for it to finally get here within the next few weeks hopefully. In regards to the 730N radio, check out this web link below.. It explains the difference between the 430N Garmin and 730N.. If you wait long enough, in Jan supposedly the 730 is being updated to have Garmin interface..

Thanks for the greeting! Do you really think it's worth waiting, is the Harmon navigation not supposed to be good? It's just so hard to be patient at this point!

LOL, yes Im impatient, I mean who isn't when you order a new vehicle. I ordered the 730N with the Harmon, I figured its been out for years and most bugs should be worked out. If in the future I want to upgrade to the newer radio, It might cost some $$$, but I'd imagine I could sell the 730N RER to recoupe the cost. For now, its the 730N..

Don't quote me on it, I was in a Ferrari California last week and I was looking at the navigation and I'm pretty sure it's has the 730N, if it's good enough for Ferrari it must be good. I don't know if anyone can confirm that.

I think I'll just try to order it ASAP, I'm getting tired of waiting LOL.
