New Navigation System for Chrysler
 
In the updated photos available of the updated Charger, they show a new touch screen navigation radio system.

They need to work on getting this into the Grand Cherokee ASAP, along with the newer transmissions.

Wow, that looks great. Looks to be very high resolution and user friendly. Which system is it?

Nav looks like Garmin UI

That is 100% Garmin interface.

Looks like it will have climate controls available from the touch screen like the new Fords. Hopefully, this will be a software upgrade for the 430N (GUI, I doubt if the HVAC controls are upgradeable).

I'd rather have hard buttons for climate control and seat heating/cooling.

+1

I agree soft buttons suck for basic controls. That is why in my opinion the new Ford Explorer is a BIG FAIL. It has way to much going on inside for people to pay attention to driving. I see a lot of those new safety features being used. :lol:

No

From what I recall, there is a new 8.5" nav coming out for the new 300, Chally and Charger (among others) but it will NOT be compatable with the GC or the Durango.

Milous would know more.

really dont care for that......ChryCo needs to look at the Lexus and Infinity Nav systems.....

Varying is correct; this new nav unit will not be in the wk2 until the midlife refresh, 2012-13 model year, per Milous. There is a posting somewhere on this board about it.

It's the 8.4" 740N touch screen, and if you want it go buy a 2011 Journey. If not, it will not be in a GC any time soon. Something drastic would need to be done to the center stack fior this unit to fit, so don't expect it until a mid cycle refresh IMO.
