Re: New Navigation System for Chrysler

The New GC's current navigation area can definitely hold a larger unit. There is a spacer right now that separates the climate control from the Nav and I'm pretty confident that they will remove that spacer and fill it in with a larger nav unit in later years. Mark my words...

The new charger Nav looks too square. I don't like it. I hope they have something better for the later releases of the GC. In the mean time I love my 730N in my '11 Overland

Re: New Navigation System for Chrysler

New next generation 8.4" radios...with and without navigation (Garmin)... going in to the 2011 Dodge Charger, 2011 Dodge Journey and the 2011 Chrysler 300.

Will not fit in the 2011 WK, look for larger screens in the 2013-2014 model year.

The result: four high-quality next-generation infotainment models that are easy to use and simplify how passengers interact with different radio, media, climate control and navigation technologies."

Re: New Navigation System for Chrysler

Looks neat, but I can't think of a worse idea than requiring the driver to use a multifunction display for basic climate control tasks. I *don't* want to have to flip through a few different pages to turn on my seat heater and then get back to the audio or nav screen. I'm not even that thrilled with the nav and stereo sharing the same screen and controls.

Re: New Navigation System for Chrysler

It looks like they still have hardware climate controls...looks like there will be an option to have both. I don't mind the integration but it's a bad idea to get rid of hardware controls. I agree that menus for basic functions suck. I hate having to diving into the menu just to adjust the bass/treble controls...no need to be doing all that for temp too.

+2 The fiddly user interface for climate control and seat heaters is one major reason I won't be buying a new Audi. The designers must not spend much time behind the wheel to have come up with Audi or Ford's interfaces. Jeep has it right.

I saw the screen before.. it's huge.

And since the photo was taken on hwy 1, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same one.. oh and the speed limit on hwy 1 is NOT 30mph

I have a 2010 G37 coupe with the latest and greatest HD factory navigation system and it's so-so in my opinion. The resolution has been improved for 2010 and it is HD, so it's fast. But other than that, I'm not very impressed. I also have a 4Runner that has factory navigation (almost identical to the Lexus factory units) and I think that's the best factory navigation I've ever used. It's so intuitive that anyone could use it without even glancing at the manual. Still though, it doesn't really look any better than the unit pictured above, as far as the user interface and resolution are concerned.

I think the mdx did/does also have soft controls for hvac. I always hated that. There comes a point where they better balance it properly and I think soft controls are better left to navigation and entertainment functionality period.
