Re: 72 hours with '14 Overland

I will be picking up my black Overland tomorrow, I am a bit disappointed in loosing out the rear glass flip up and also the roll down the windows by the remote key. I used those options a lot in my 2011. I also used the deep center console for a lot of stuff, it looks like they took that away. Don't get me wrong I look forward to the 2014 but I wish Jeep would ask some of us customers (who have owned jeeps) for more than 18 years what their take is on some of thier changes. I think many of us could really come up with some good options for future models. Can't wait till tomorrow

Re: 72 hours with '14 Overland

Aside from the obvious space gain in the tray if you don't have a CD player, does the tray lift for more storage underneath without a CD player?

Re: 72 hours with '14 Overland

Yes, there is a small tray directly under the arm rest, but that lifts up and there is deep storage beneath that (if you don't have the CD player).

Re: 72 hours with '14 Overland

Thanks Northland. That's good to know I'll have a place to stash a bunch of stuff within easy reach.

Thanks for all the info! I am (not patiently) awaiting my Overland also with black interior to make its way across the country, so this was great to fuel my obsession while I wait!

Have you tried controling the climate and seat features via VR? It doesn't work..

Works on my RA4 system - e.g.; "Set driver temperature to 69 degrees." You sure you're pressing the VR button and not the green phone button? Your phone won't know what to do with your seat.

I was able to set the climate using VR by saying set climate to 72 degrees. Other than that, I struck out on most other tries including the seats.

Northland, how are you saying it to get it to work with the seats? Is there a list of accepted commands? When you say help with the VR, it goes through some generic ones for the phone and radio, but then says consult the owner's manual, but I didn't remember seeing anything about being able to control the seats/steering wheel.

I said you can turn on/off the heated seat function via the VR system - never said anything about controlling any other seat or steering wheel functions. Even computer voices have limitations.

Sorry, I meant what are you saying to turn on the heated seats and does it work with turning on the heated steering wheel? I tried several different times and phrase variations to turn on the heated seats with VR and it never worked.

That could be fun if you could control the seat position and mess with other people while driving by raising/lowering their seats

That's odd. Everyone's saying this like VR controlling everything from climate controls to the radio is a new feature. I've had this in my '11 Overland since I bought it. The only problem I've noticed is it switching to the wrong station sometimes and turning the heat down too far.

Of course, she does take up the whole passenger seat...
