I have an Overland and the BSM is an awesome feature. The chime only goes off if you operate the blinkers when another vehicle is in your blind spot. That is, if you intend to change lanes. Nifty!

Just a quick survey question if ppl could help me out.

YES or NO and why on the acc package...Thanks

I really want this JGC, it looks and feels amazing.
Both can be turned off but they are so good why would you want to?

Re: Blind Spot Monitoring/Adaptive Cruise Ctl

Totally agree. This feature works perfectly well and could easily have your back if you missed something.

BSM works well but 2 minor complaints and 1 observation:
> BSM beeps only if turn signal on and vehicle in "blind spot". OK, but if multple turn lanes (left for example) and someone is in the inner lane blind spot, then signal goes off. I'm turning with the other turn lane but not shifting lanes. Alas, no mind reading with BSM. Solution: Ignore th beep or New York City style turn - no signal.
> In city driving, safe lane shifts often happen when BSM judges that a vehicle is in the blind spot. Gap size, speed and closing rates are the key decision factors. Solution: Ignore the beep or New York City style: no turn signal. {In NYC, it's not advisable to signal other drivers that you would like to occupy a gap.}
> BSM does not judge the closing rate of a vehicle approaching the blind spot from the rear. The driver still MUST judge the closing rate with a rear gaining vehicle before making a lane shift. Don't assume the BSM clears a lane shift as safe !!!!

BSM is a great tool, but understand it's limits.

BTW, in the Cherokee, ACC or regular CC must be initiated, and is not automatically on in either mode.

Re: Blind Spot Monitoring/Adaptive Cruise Ctl

Sorry about the repost and thanks for pointing certain behavior characteristics. I especially liked your comment about it being a tool. You still have to know how to drive. I don't do much city driving; mostly suburban and some highway.

The initial version of the ACC did not have stop, but the current version does...
