Re: 2011 WK: Garmin navigation

I like it better than being on the fender. It'll improve the look of the Jeep's exterior IMO. Plus, as stated earlier, it will most likely be removable or collapsible. I've got to give these engineers some type of credit...maybe I shouldn't.

Oh, and that "Garmin" shot looks like an RER with a photoshopped screen shot. I'm really curious to see how the Garmin system performs; I really have no major gripes with the MyGig so far.

I totally agree Scott everybody is worried about it before they even know the facts. The antenna may be able to pivot to lay down or at worst jeep will make the cross members with a bow to them so that they clear the antenna, and I am sure people alot smarter than us with engineering degrees out the ass designed this for a reason and have a solution in mind for any roof carry application needed,

Re: 2011 WK: Garmin navigation

From a Jeep Sales Person

"Well, the ride and drive was awesome! We had 5 hours of hands on with these beautiful vehicles. To answer your questions, the quadra-lift air suspension is able to be ordered now, this is to be used if you are going to do heavy duty off-roading. Also, the garmin Nav is going to be available LATE LATE LATE model year. They said it is actually the lesser version of the current Nav system that is in place to help save some people money. It is not as high tech as the one that is currently in place. It was a great learning experience. I'm glad I got to go. Let me know what else you need to know before you place your order. Thanks!"

Any thoughts on the Garmin Being the "lesser version" and that its LATE LATE LATE Availability

Re: 2011 WK: Garmin navigation

I doubt it since Milous said all the new Navs/radios are high speed units

Re: 2011 WK: Garmin navigation

Just placed my order for Laredo X package and the Garmin Nav is now an available option for around $400.

I hope the future model of the Media Center 730N (model RHR) is going to have an HD Radio capability.
