Need activation code
I'm after a activation code for my my014 larado as jeep Australia won't supply code for this model. Can anyone help in the US? Buying off a dealer isn't a problem

Re: Need activation code

Re: Need activation code
Trying to activate the navigation just need the code so I can see the nav button on the display

Re: Need activation code
I would hazard a guess that such a code might be VIN specific...

Re: Need activation code
You are right it is VIN specific but as Jeep Australia won't supply my hope is that there is a dealer in the US that will supply it. Don't need the maps only the code

The RA2 radio isn't Nav capable. The RA3 is Nav capable. Can't understand why the dealer won't activate it, he'll make money. If you have the RA3 try another dealer. It's a hands on thing, they can't do it from the other side of the world. It's a little more complicated than entering a code number.

Re: Need activation code
Why would you just want the button.. and not the maps?? seems.. odd. As others said, the dealer must do this. Just go to another dealer.

Hi All
I can't go to another dealer as jeep australia won't supply the code the dealer would if they could. What else is required other than entering the unlock code to bring up the nav button. Once I'm in the nav screen I can the upload my maps to the system

Re: Need activation code
You could always contact a dealer (google) in the US see what they say.
Why Laredo's in Australia havnt got this option to activate (NAV) properly ...goodness knows!?
Id like to activate it as well...but gotta sneaky suspicion that the VIN tells Chrysler/Jeep where your from...and they wont be giving you a code once they know your in there are no maps for Australia officially anyway for the RA3..even if you got a code what maps are going to put on it and from where ?

Re: Need activation code
woah.. wait... there are no maps for australia???? What if you got an RA4? Someone on

Re: Need activation code
Apologies...slight overstatement ! :)
AFAIK there are no aussie maps/software to be had (yet) that aren't already preloaded on an RA4...and we don't know if maps/software comes preloaded on the Laredo's RA3...

Unless the Aussie dealers have Maps on a USB...perhaps
