If you order the rear entertainment sysytem you will only be able to get a standard sunroof the command view is only available without the Rear Entertainment system.

You will get the small sun roof with the roof mounted dvd/tv,it is not available with the big panoramic sun roof.Not having this uconnect guardian feature may prevent me from buying this jeep,lexus has one,bmw,has one,mercedes benz has one,and gm has one popular known as onstar
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee was to feature uconnect Guardian as a standard feature on all models (services provided by Hughes Telematics), but we are not sure if it will still be available. uconnect guardian would provide customers with:
  • Automatic Crash Notification – In the event of an accident, a call is placed and a request for assistance is dispatched to the vehicle’s location
  • Emergency Call – With a push of the emergency button, customers are placed in contact with a trained emergency response specialist during an emergency situation
  • Roadside Assistance Call – Connects customers to a uconnect customer care specialist who can connect them to Chrysler’s road-side assistance for towing or jump starts
  • Remote Door Unlock – Remotely unlocks doors with a simple phone call
  • Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance – Works with local authorities via on-demand tracking to provide the current location of the vehicle if it is stolen

The only Uconnect feature that already has been delayed is the new Garmin Navigation system. Other than that all other Uconnect features are scheduled for immediate release with the first WK2s off the line.This is according to all my sources including many knowlageable ones on this sight that have had the most accurate and up to date info available(milous)so I am curious as to where you heard this.

It appears that Uconnect Guardian has been cancelled due to the fallout between Chrysler and Hughes Telematics...

Chrysler, like many automakers has faced significant challenges during this economic downturn, resulting in their filing for bankruptcy protection. HUGHES Telematics (HTI) has continued to support the Chrysler telematics program through the bankruptcy process and the formation of new Chrysler, which took over the Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep businesses from the bankrupt company. HTI and new Chrysler each sought to renegotiate the partnership contract to address specific business issues that were important to each company. To that end, HTI has been diligently negotiating a new telematics services agreement with new Chrysler, while also continuing in good faith to support the original program with our resources. Recently, new Chrysler introduced additional business terms that were not part of either the prior business discussions or the original arrangement. As a result, we reached an impasse in the negotiations and are ceasing our work with new Chrysler to deploy our hardware and launch our services with them in the fourth quarter of 2009, as was previously planned.
