Re: Went KZ, interesting sticker

My window sticker doesn't indicate which radio system is installed, though I do have 9 premium speakers

I had thought/expected a 430N, now I'm not sure. BTW my sticker doesn't show QDII either.

Re: Went KZ, interesting sticker

I just picked mine up three weeks ago, and I got a 730N, RER of course.

Interesting, but par for the course. My vehicle was received at the dealer AFTER yours and came with the 430n RHB. That is the source of frustration for those waiting on their orders; the unpredictability of which media center/navi they'll get. It's all part of the surprise. Maybe this was dreamed up by the marketing guys to generate buzz.

You can tell by the base price which radio you will get. If the base is $41,910 then you have the 430, Jeep adds $305 to the base when the 730 is installed, so if the base price is $42,215 then it is the 730. Or it could show up as an added option on the right side of the sticker of $305.

I've had both the RER and the RHB. They both have their pros and cons and depends on what matters to you. I've listed a few from my perspective below.

RHB Pros -
1. Bluetooth streaming (problematic skipping when iPhone is awake)
2. SMS - does not work yet though rumor has it that a Jan update will fix
3. Navigation - the gui looks up POIs quicker on the RHB in my view (caveat, my RER was on the 07JK and it has been updated since then). On the RER there were too many button pushes to find a POI.

RHB Cons -
1. Zoom in. The map resolution is not as good when zooming in. When the RHB zooms in, instead of using a different pictures with additional detail, it appears to zoom in on the current view which makes the streets wider. A better approach would be to have separate map pictures with the additional street level details for the zoomed in view.
2. It does not have the "bread crumb" feature. After each trip, the RHB has the option of showing you where you have been but you can not save it as a route in the same way as the implementation on the RER. The RER records your route and you have the option to saves it for future use.
3. Navigation not voice controlled. This is available on the RER.

RER Pros -
1. Zoom in. Much better rendering of the map on the RER.
2. Option to turn off some of the overlays to provide clearer view of the map.
3. Zoom in is manual not automatic. This may be a con for some but I consider manual zooming a "pro". On the RHB, it automatically zooms in and out depending on your speed (my guess) when not actively being guided to a location and I hate it because you do not have the option to turn this off that I can find. On the RER, you manually control your level of zoom.

RER Cons -
1. No Bluetooth streaming. No big deal for me since the implementation on the RHB is marginal at best. During steaming, you do not currently get any track info. I don't know if this will change with the rumored update.
2. No SMS. Again, no big deal since it doesn't work on the RHB yet...at least with the iphone.
3. GUI not as intuitive as Garmin. There are a lot of button pushes to search for destinations. Also when doing a search, there is a lag between entering a letter as though it is attempting to narrow down search results but this is not the case, it stills asks additional questions like the "POI Type". The search function needs to be streamlined.

Bluetooth streaming is a disappointment, I could have swore it should, based on specs.

Rd, I agree with your assessment of the RHB which I got in my WK2 Overland. During one visit to the dealer I had a chance to compare it with RER and the very first thing I noticed about it was that it was noticeably snappier than the RER. This applied to both touchscreen and voice input. That in and of itself offset some of its cons. I wish there was a unit that blended the display of the RER with the responsive GUI of the RHB.

I agree with you on the display. I am holding out hopes that the resolution of the display is the same for both units and that at some point, Garmin/Chrysler upgrades will make the display look more like the Garmin maps on the Kenwood units, which during my brief look at one at Bestbuy, looked pretty sharp.
