2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I wish they'd change those stupid radio controls on the back of the steering wheel!! I actually thought they did with the new 14 wheel, but they did not

I was being serious, those part numbers match. I've seen them swapped too at the dealer. Both use 55079378AF and 55079379AF.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Anyone have their screen disable while driving without the ability to wake until the Jeep's ignition has been shut down for some time? Getting this to happen on our GC Limited rental, seems to occur when attempting to access Navi while driving. Have never had this on our 2012 GC.

I also agree. I have no problem with it whatsoever. Definitely, would not be a deal breaker to me.

Its a marketing-speak term for "oh sh*t, we can't get the new model out in time and meanwhile we need to keep the revenue stream coming, so lets toss a few gewgaws at it and call it a technology refresh"

... and not at all restricted to automobiles.

!!!!! Agreed. Nothing like Howard Stern about to do the punchline and the next thing you know you are listening to CNN manufacture news.

They can.

Stop falling for these news articles.

I'm not saying that they are false, but there are other driving factors.

And they are all....

Better yet, let us map those six buttons on the back of the wheel, there is no reason today those have to be statically assigned. Heck I think its something they could address in the uconnect or QNX update without any hardware changes. That way we could customize them to do whatever we want.

HIGHLY doubt they would go back to that thing. If anything it's probably gonna be a rotary knob shifter like on some other Chrysler vehicles. That mechanical old school shifter is history.
If it were up to some guys on this forum I swear cars would still have cassette decks and halogen headlights lol.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

It's been reported / rumored the shifter will be something like Dodge is using.

2015 Dodge Charger Electronic Gear Shifter
GEAR SHIFT SELECTOR
Gear up for a smoother ride with an all-new fully electronic shifter. It looks and feels like a linkage shifter, but delivers the benefits of electronic shifting, like short throws and low shift effort.

As for cassette decks, I want to go back to four track, yes I said 4. Those tapes could hold three 'LP albums'. For the youngsters, three LP albums means about 30 songs.

Do you have a Link available that discusses the Dodge shifter with perhaps any pics available? FYI speaking as a professional DJ, as much as convenience permits us to carry an enormously large digital encyclopedia to our events, there's nothing that compares to both the warmth of classic vinyl not to mention the fully uncompressed high fidelity lossless Aiff file from CDs. We may think we're moving forward in technology, yet these uncompressed reduced audio files we listen to off iTunes is by no means an improvement. Just one's professional opinion of course . Yes I do miss the mechanical shifter very much, not that we'll ever get to experience it again in our beloved Jeeps.
