Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is there a link to the order banks? Do they remain the same year to year or will there be a different link for the '17's?

"Order Banks" are for dealers. There is information in the first few posts of this thread that are maintained by Milous as details are released on MY17.

At least it is a good sign we are this close in without the order bank date changing. When they kept pushing back 16 production, I thought it was with more notice than we are now. Just too bad I won't be ordering one until I know the deal with android auto or I would be three weeks away from having one in.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

2016 Order Bank is still open as of today. Just put in a factory order for the Limited 75th Anniversary JGC in Recon Green today. I was hoping for the 2017 with next generation radio, mostly for Apple Car Play. However since it will be delayed to the fall and also learning that the phone will have to be plugged into the radio, rendering Waze and other apps useless while connected, I no longer care about Car Play. Would love the new touch screen, but hey - the existing one works fine and the Recon Green 75th Anniversary edition looks awesome!!!

Considering iOS 9 started supporting wireless CarPlay in September 2015 when it was released, there is a great chance that the 2017 uconnect models were based on this build and will support wireless. Even with wireless CarPlay I would use it wired due to the limitations of Bluetooth wireless with both CarPlay and Android Auto. Wired gives better everything while charging your phone at the same time.

Also, I don't believe Waze supports CarPlay at all, either wired or wireless.

If it's wireless CarPlay it may require wifi rather than Bluetooth to use

That's what kills CarPlay for me. I use Waze all the time and it's not supported (as well as many other apps) with CarPlay. What I've heard too is that if you are connected to CarPlay, you can't even use Waze on the phone itself when connected. Therefore I wouldn't be using Car Play even if I had the capability.

Also - while iOS 9 does support wireless CarPlay, Apple hasn't yet approved any auto maker to demonstrate it yet. Wonder if that's why the 4 gen Uconnect will be delayed for the 2017 JGC or perhaps it's something else.

In any case, it will be interesting to watch. Glad FCA continues to invest in Uconnect!

True, I didn't mention it as I am unsure if uconnect has built in wifi, never had one yet.

It has the ability to create a wifi hot spot, so yes it does have Wifi built in. Not sure how that will affect carplay though.

I see you posted that Apple Car Play / Android will be delayed to the fall - where is this information coming from and how sure are you regarding this information?

thanks

That came from Milous in this thread or one of the others discussing Apple Play. He noted that it was new Radio hardware and that the initial 2017's would not have the new hardware. He believed that might show up in the fall, but there was no firm date.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Still mind boggling they would not use the new radio at launch regardless of CarPlay. CarPlay is just an overlay onto an existing UI/OS. Just include the new radios and then have an update that installs CarPlay down the line.
