Hello! New to forum and just ordered an Overland V6!

Just found this forum and wanted to stop by and say hello! Ordered a Mineral Gray Overland V6 on Thursday. Was hoping for Saddle color combo, but was told that the saddle interior is officially on hold and only can be ordered as part of the new Overland Summit now. I have my dealer checking with someone at Jeep for a "final" official word, but it's starting to look like Frost interior for me.

One thing I don't understand, are the negative comments on the two Navigation systems. Personally, I'm a Garmin user and have been for years. It's one of the main reasons I chose to go look at the GC once I heard that they were the first car company to offer a Garmin based GPS as an option. I understand what people mean when they talk about "cartoon-ish" graphics, but really, is there an "easier to use" GPS user interface on the market? Anyway, to each his own. I'm really stoked about getting the the GC Overland and will stop by here from time to time.

Cheers,

Joe

Re: Hello! New to forum and just ordered an Overland V6!

Congrats and welcome to the forum. You found the best Jeep site on the net.

Had you went into the dealership literally just one day earlier (wednesday) it would have accepted the saddle interior order. Unfortunately no one knew it was going to even come off hold and then it went back on hold as quick as it came off. Either way though mineral gray with black interior is going to be amazing!!

Welcome, Joe!

Re the gripes about the Garmin navi, it's just something to talk about. I was one of those who didn't care for the Garmin graphics initially. I can say that having just logged around 900+ miles this weekend, I am a fan of this RHB system. It's efficient, unobtrusive, and intuitive for me to use (never had a Garmin device before). I'm a convert!
