re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Very informative thread thanks to all who contributes. I have one question I'm a little confused. I ordered a rubicon hard rock with premium alpine audio and rhb uconnect 430 n. Does this include everything that connectivity group comes with ie Bluetooth tether with phone and individual tire pressure?

I'm afraid this is one of those "two face" colors. Looking back at all the other pictures and then seeing it in person, it truly does seem to change shades. The lighting and the surroundings have a big influence on its appearance.

I like it. A little darker than commando green.

Yes, the Hard Rock comes standard with the (full) Connectivity Group.

The interface is not critical, as I am a total geek and can program my DVR without the help of a 12 year old. Appreciate the feedback.
The 730N has a Harmon NAV system (Tom Tom like). The 430N has a Garmin NAV system. It is really personal preference because neither is really all that better than the other.

The 730N can do split screen, displaying two things like Map and Turn-by-turn directions at the same time. However, Turn-by-turn directions can also be displayed on the EVIC so that might not be all that important.

The 730N can do "dead reckoning" which means it can continue to navigate with the loss of GPS signal (tunnels, urban canyons, etc).

The 730N can do "bread crumbs", recording your off-road trip and then guiding you back along the same route.

The 730N can do "traffic", but you have to pay for that after the free trail period is over. Though, since you are "TrafficGuy", maybe that is really important to you?

Both the 730N and 430N can only use "real" map loads (forgetting about "iffy" hacking of maps on the 430N). Even though the 430N is Garmin based, it doesn't have the standard Garmin micro-SD card slot. So you can't just buy a $30 TOPO map load on a micro-SD card and slap it in.

For just my opinion, I got the 730N, but now feel I should have gotten the 430N. Everything else I use is Garmin based, and because of that, I think I would have enjoyed the 430N more.

Yes your order with hard rock package will come with connectivity group as standard including uconnect voice command w/ bluetooth, individual tpms, etc. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1409917114.846436.jpg

I read where the jeep.com page would reflect the 2015 models on Sept 2. As of this am it still hasn't changed over. Does anybody know when it will?

The only thing you need to leave with is your Priced Order Confirmation (POC) printout that contains your Vehicle Order Number (VON).

On mine the sales manager also wrote the agreed upon sales price and initialed it at the bottom.

The VON is all you need to look-up and track your order.

+1

It would seem 2015 'launch' is not for a while.

Can you elaborate more when you say only a little darker? I was not a fan of Commando at all, so would you say I am going to be disappointed with this? The anticipation of seeing it is killing me at this point because as was mentioned before I see half of the photos making it look like a nice dark green and the other half a light yellowish brown. So would you say that the closeup picture is you took is more accurate of the color than the distance shot taken on the truck?
