Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Dealer passed along today that the distribution manager told him that Overland production has been impacted by a "severe over-schedule condition. Not quite sure if that means the schedule itself is horked up or behind, or if they've just taken way too many orders to fulfill them all in a normal time frame. Could also be crazy talk to get me to quit bugging him.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Does anyone know what happens with these builds that have the rer 730? Its gotta either convert to 430 or be waiting for the new 730. Is it possible that's what's causing these delays?

All orders placed after the 730 RER was discontinued, in August, will receive the 430 Garmin unit as standard equipment on the Overland. 730 RHR will not be available until mid January and will become standard on the Overlands at that time. This, according to my dealership.

Can't say which unit is superior at this point. But the 730 RHR is supposedly the "premium" navigation unit.

I purchased my Overland at the end of October from the dealer's lot, it had the 730 nav system, and the build date on the door was 10/10 so as of October they were still shipping 730's with the Overland.

I received the 730 RER, as the original post stated the RER was disco in Aug and the 430 was being used from then on. As of Oct they were still building Overlands with the 730 RER Nav systems.

I sure hope he, salesman, is correct. We have had so much misinformation from the dealer and Chrysler Info that you may say I am a little skeptical at this point.....BUT HOPEFUL We hope yours shows up soon, we all have had to wait too long.
