Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

My only hesitation with not getting the CD player is for those long car trips when you can check out an audio book from the library that the kids can listen to. It'd be nice not to worry about getting that synced up with my iPhone prior to the trip. I still won't get it since I've played a CD in my current car all of 1 time (drive to DC) in the 2 years I've had it. Up until 3 months ago, I wasn't even sure that the CD player worked - I hadn't even tested it out.

Check your library and see if you can borrow audio books online. If so, get a cheap kindle reader and you have something that is useful.

Since the online manuals from Jeep are more up to date than the printed ones, I am getting a small one to keep in the car. I'll also use it for reading when away from home.

Use the CD player your laptop computer and plug it into the plug in the back of the middle console to keep the battery charged. You can get a long Aux cable and use the Jeeps speakers too. For the long trips that is.

The problem with using a laptop is all the bumps you'll be hitting while you drive and the unstable optical drive and the harddrive taking a dump on you.

I wonder if using an external DVD drive and using a movie in it will enable it to show up on the 8.4 screen?

No optical drive in my laptops. But I'm sure I can scrounge around in my surplus electronics tubs and find an old CD player to use in a pinch if needed. That's probably what I'll end up doing.

Congrats John glad to hear it's finally on its way; having it sit there is far worse than not being scheduled.

Sounds promising, John. After all of the angst, it's good to hear you winding so upbeat. Hopefully you're wheeling around in that new Jeep very soon. Congratulations!

I know you are anxious to get a few miles under your belt. But do you think that maybe a week or two after delivery you will be ready to take us all for a ride?

I am really happy for you!

Bill, thank you. I really hope we can all meet up somewhere for a beer one day. First round is on me. Look for the little bar in Michigan with 20 new Grand Cherokees in front of it. What a ride.
