Jim, I understand that... I said "basically".

Checked the Jeep build site. The 8.4AN is available as a standalone option (under Interior) on the 2015 GC Limited for $1245-.

You're right... I never looked under Interior.

It was the lack of coffee, so the laugh is on me.

Re: Question (Truecar)

I just use the nav in my smart phone. Base radio with Uconnect BT. $21 for a mount. Self updates and tells me about construction/traffic. Think the music (over 2500 songs -and climbing- I've collected) sounds better than that satellite thingie. Can also read/display engine parameters & fault codes. Into the second generation on my '12 now.

Do think the factory back up camera system is better but my wireless system tells me what I need to know (and can switch to the one on the back of my trailer).

Re: Question (Truecar)

Thanks a lot guys for all the advice, today I got a real good offer on an Altitude which I might jump on next week. Just a bit lower than the lowest Car Price offer.

I have heard this. I ended up having the dealer do the software upgrade and it seems to have everything I would ever need. Out of curiosity, what doesn't it have that the factory option does?

Outside of what the 8.4A (RA3) offers after factory upgrade to nav, the 8.4AN (RA4) includes 3D maps and more importantly HD streaming radio.

From what I can tell, yes. I started to set mine up, but never finished. My other truck is a 1990 Toyota Pickup, so I am not used to all this technology.lol

Sure can regardless if you have the RA3 or RA4 radio.
