Re: GC Wish List

Either the BlueRay setup or the CD player option mess with the center arm rest console storage...there is only so much space available. Some folks who bought a vehicle off the lot with the CD have removed it and replaced the innards of the console with the standard two bin system which does provide a reasonable amount of storage. (There's a thread sticky-ed at the top of the Navigation forum on the process to do that) But for folks with the BlueRay system...that's really not a practical solution since it would disable the rear DVD display system.

I still listen to CDs because I dislike the sound compressed audio files give. I agree the location in the center armrest remains ill-conceived.

Re: GC Wish List

tiri, can you really hear a discernible difference while driving with road and wind noise, as little as it may be, that makes losing the storage justifiable to play the discs? I would think it hard to hear the difference outside of at extremely high volumes. But I certainly could be wrong about that. I generally play a random mix from about 4000 songs on my iPhone via BlueTooth while traveling and have never thought it sounded bad in any way outside of some volume irregularities between certain songs and the rest.

Re: GC Wish List

Yes Jim, it is discernible, especially in the high frequencies such as cymbals clashing. The best description is that it sounds tinny; it is quite annoying and disappointing at the same time. As an exercise, you may be able to compare differences in sound quality in the following sources:
CD
HD Radio
320kb rate MP3
196 or 128kb rate MP3
Satellite radio
FM radio
AM radio

I don't see the use in SACDs or DVD Audio however since our ears won't perceive the difference in the soundstage. Why pay for something you can't hear?

Re: GC Wish List

Probably been mentioned, but here goes. Button on the dash for the heated/vented seats and steering wheel. My new Ram has them and now my jeep feels like it's lacking. Also a phone holder like the RAM.

It's been reported Apple lossless files are supported. They definitely sound better than 320kb MP3 with good speakers.

It's a format to compress audio that I think preserves 100% of the original audio. It's not widely supported, not sure why. Probably corporate politics??

Love it.

It's a first world problem, but I hate when I hit the remote start as I'm getting ready to leave the house/work, only to walk out to the car and realize it never went through. I find the range is fairly finicky and variable on this fob.

Get the SRT version. You can hear it start from your basement. Lol
