Oh, I agree and I also have the iPhone app so I'm covered. It does take the fun out of my normal first night ritual, reading the owners manual cover to cover As it stands now I'll be able to quote the manual chapter and verse before they even start to build my Overland

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the iPhone app is just the user guide, not the full manual.

It's kind of a cross between the two. There's certainly more info in the app than the users guide but it's not up the the level of an owners manual.

Re: How to change FOB battery?

Ok, so last night I went to the Jeep site and download the full PDF owners manual into iBooks, so now I definitely have the full version on my iPhone / iPad.

Sure enough, the FOB Battery replacement is in there

The pic I posted of the FOB battery replacement was an iPad screen capture of the manual. I gotta say that besides my GC, the iPad is probably my most used gadget I bought in 2010...love that thing On a side note, I keep all my manuals, service history/receipts in an app called Goodreader. It reads most document formats, has a built in browser for surfing/downloading, and you can create folders for organizational purproses. If you own an iPad or iPhone, for reference and organization of "stuff", Goodreader is the best app I've found.

Thanks for the tip about GoodReader! For some reason the images didn't show on my PDF in iBooks for iPad.

I had the same problem too even with Goodreader. There was an update to Goodreader that fixed that problem.
