The RHR. The dvr like function is access using the repeat button when its on a satellite station.
To make some artist or song a favorite, touch the icon with the note with the plus sign on it that shows up above the radio station (assuming the RER has the same layout). You can access the favorites by going to the search screen and selecting the Favorites button.

I have had the RER in my 08 and now my 11 and there is nothing like that in the lay out.

Discovered that you need to "push in" the blinker arm lever to use the windshield washers!

I feel pretty stupid, but that one had me stumped while driving to work one morning as well.

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

Can someone with a Laredo verify that with reverse engaged, the side mirrors DO NOT tilt down?

Our Laredo X (Nav, backup cam, sensors) side mirrors do not tilt when in reverse..

Also, why arent there parking sensors up front if we have them in the rear??

I'm annoyed that that my Laredo X's side mirrors don't auto-dim like the rear view mirror does, let alone have mechanicals for tilting. My lowly 2003 Liberty had auto dimming side mirrors.

The tilting rear view mirrors that tilt down when the car is put in reverse sound great on paper, but if you're just parking the car it's annoying as heck. It may be usefull when backing up on a hill, especially 4x4ing but it's not all that helpful when you can't see behind you when parallel parking. I turned the feature off after one use.

No tilting mirrors on the Laredo X.

I turned them off as well. My previous vehicle (3 series) had this feature but only the passenger side mirror would pivot down and you could turn it off and on with a push of a button. With the Jeep system you lose too much rear visibility in my opinion and turning it off and on is too much trouble.

it does help with parallel parking, so you don't risk curbing your wheels.
