The VR should work with the iPod.
Take a look at the Owner's Manual (CD version) for instructions.
it says it will do this but only for synced devices... WTF is a synced device and how can i make my iPod a synced device like it seemed to be in my 2011 Overland?

I could be wrong but in my 10 camaro, if I plug in an iphone/ipod, it has to "index" the music first before I can browse or search anything. Depending upon how much music you have it could take a while. It may need to index or "Sync" as they call it, before it lets you use voice search... Just an idea... When I get my rig I'll give it a shot and let you know what I find out if you haven't figured it out by then.

This could be the trick. Question is once its indexed is it good to go? In my 2011 Overland the voice function worked on this same ipod no problem. Maybe if it syncs once then its good to go from then on? Can anyone elaborate on what a synced device is?

Bottom line: buy this Jeep!
Guys like you drive me crazy. Just when I am ready to cancel the order for my SRT that is imprisoned in QC and buy an Overland for 15k less I read a write-up like yours!!
How can I possibly buy an Overland after your SRT review???
(Great review, hopefully I and the rest of us waiting for the paint to dry or whatever for over a month will get ours before the Thanksgiving turkey cools.

Re: Thoughts about the Jeep after delivery

I never drove one, but is the hemi 5.7 in the regular cherokees really that slow??

I figured it would be very strong...I currently just traded in a 2011 4runner for the srt8 ,,which is way less HP than the 5.7, and even the 4.0 was peppy when u smashed it...but it handled like a fat elephant.

Re: Thoughts about the Jeep after delivery

Another HUGE plus on the 2012 SRT8 is the front bumper clearance! I dont have to worry about pulling up slow to the curb anymore, my 2009 was a nightmare. Bought a cam for the front bumper but never hooked it up because i was always crunching it on the curb! they got it just right on this one! A+ Ralph!

Relatively speaking, YES. I drove a 2011 Hemi Overland and was unimpressed. I would by a used WK1 SRT8 hands down over a WK2 Overland. The power is night and day different. The SRT8's are a whole different animal.

Reviews like this make me want to drive a WK2 SRT8 even with the "inflated" price.
