Re: Picked up my new 2014 Jeep Limited yesterday!!!

That steering wheel shot reminded me of the ones they posted for the 2011-13 that looked like a rabbit. The designers sure do have a sense of humor, now they kind made it look like curious George.

You are so right! Now I'm not going to be able to get the idea that I'm driving a rabbit out of my head. Thanks a lot Although maybe mine looks like a cute cuddly bear.

So I had my first major "moment" with the vehicle yesterday. I was exiting the highway, tried to accelerate, and was getting almost no response. I was able to pull over, restart the vehicle, and the problem went away. As I quickly figured out, I must have touched the paddle shifters on the steering wheel and the jeep went into manual shift mode. Because I didn't have training from the Salesman I didn't know this was possible. It seems the jeep should only do this when I move the shifter into D/S mode. Tonight I'm going to see if I can disable this feature. It was a little scary and thankfully I was in a place where I could pull over and not be stalled in a dangerous traffic situation while I figured it out.

On a wonderfully delightful note I put the usb port to use this AM and thought the interface worked so well. I was rocking out hard on my daily commute! "You're welcome" to whomever I was entertaining with my dance moves. I need to figure out if I have a harddrive with this radio to store the music. I thought I remembered reading about a 40gb drive. Really it doesn't matter anyway as I used my bestbuy reward to buy a 750 gb harddrive last night which will be dedicated to Jeep tunes.

I also noticed that on the nav map it listed the posted speed limit. I didn't have this on my last vehicle and the only thing that would make it better is if it were displayed near the speedometer. So cool.

One question I have: does anyone know how to put the passenger seat down in the forward position? I tried and tried but couldn't get it to work Maybe it's not an option since I have a power passenger seat? Not good.

Honestly, I'm still so impressed with this Jeep! Here's hoping the love affair lasts and lasts...

This is not an available feature. I too, wish it was available. Another feature I wish to have is elevation reading on the nav. Elevation is a available on most portable nav units.

Eh? I'm seeing more Tigger than Curious George. But I'll keep looking.

About the Nav-FWIW-it is Garmin based and this is a feature on the portable units called "Junction View" IIRC. It basically shows up in highway exits giving you an"realistic" view to show you where the exit will be located. Pretty cool feature. I think it should not matter whether it was the RA3 or RA4 Unit since it does not concern 3D IMO.

ETA: Would love to see exterior photos of the True Blue which is still my first choice (2nd MaxSteel; 3rd BilletSilver)

No hard drive in the 2014's, that was in the previous generation. The fold flat passenger seat is only available with the manual seat also. On a side note are you going to use the 110v plug from the back seat to power the hard drive? Either way I think your jeep will rust apart before you listen to every song on it!

Nope, just going to plug right into the radio usb. No power needed. You're right, I'll never use the full capacity for songs but there's all kinds of good files to keep in the car, I guess *shrug* plus it's nice to have options

JeffH2O, my nav is actually set to 2D - I forgot I liked it better. Make sure that "Junction View" is selected. I deselected it and the split lanes didn't show up. See the photo which was taked at the same junction as the previous photo. It doesn't do this split at every interestion though, I guess just the major ones.

Your wish is my command. I took for a stroll at lunch and captured a few shots on my phone. It's a little difficult to see the blue in the photo but it's nothing like the green, which I really wanted but looks black unless you're standing right at it and paying close attention. I've gotten tons of complements. It's clearly blue. I've also attached a few pics of my favorite features thus far: nav turn notification in the dash, speed limit on the map, and tissue holder in the arm rest = my first modification! I'll take some pics with my real camera this weekend.

Re: Picked up my new 2014 Jeep Limited yesterday!!!

Got my GC Limited on Wednesday; it is as advertised--a great vehicle. Sixty-one miles so far and we love it.

I hope you have good luck with your Jeep and get a lot of enjoyment out of the drives, even for work!
