You ordered on June 28th? I didn't think they went on sale until July. Anyway 9 weeks Monday since you ordered. You should be close. Post some pictures when you get it.

Yup, that was the day the dealer went down to Pontiac at the Silverdome for demos and brought back his first 2011. My wife almost picked up a Cadillac SRX that day but after driving the 2011GC she had to have one. Its just driving her nutzzzz waiting and have to say me too, that is she is driving me nutz listening to her. But I have been bad too. The dealer has been in contact with me regularly but I have not told her anything, When asked I just say "nope havent heard anything honey. Shes going to be soo mad when she finds out

Re: Wait Time

I was at the dealer today to order a V6 Overland but couldn't because I wanted the RHR radio. Dealer said they couldn't place the order with that radio yet. I'm so bummed.

That Media center is not scheduled to be available until Jan 15th 2011. You are in for a long wait. The 430N that is available now and standard on the Overland is a very good unit.

I know there was a different thread about this but on the printout that received back in June stated the 730n is standard. Should I insist on it when it comes in?? if you build one now on there website it shows that that the 730n is a optional unit that has additional cost

I apologize if I'm missing something that's already been posted but could someone tell me the difference between the 430N and the Garmin based 730N (RHR)?

I have not seen specs on the 730N RHR, but I would guess it will have dead reckoning, instant start on nav, split screen, voice programming of nav, and Garmin software that the RER did not have. The 430N does not have any of these except the Garmin software. The 430N does have advantages over the 730N RER however.

We all think it will be the 730N RER but with Garmin interface...

I think that is basically correct, but with one possible difference besides the Garmin software. The 430N has the ability to read directly from USB drives that the 730N RER does not have. I would think that when the 730N is changed from the RER to the RHR this ability to read directly from USB drives will be added as will.

Re: Wait Time

Mine went up a day to the 9th.... It has been stated on here many times the ship date is meaningless...
