Re: 2011 RHB: black NAV screen?

Thanks Justal13. I too have phone connect issues: sometimes the phone and head unit connect, sometimes they don't, with no rhyme or reason. For the first two years it worked solidly. It could be...

Thank you.

I don't understand this sentence. Would you kindly rephrase?

Re: 2011 RHB: black NAV screen?

The TSR (http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0805712.pdf) for that software update says it's for MY2012 only. My Overland is MY2011. I wouldn't want to load an incompatible ISO and brick my radio....

Re: 2011 RHB: black NAV screen?

Yes, I did that. The details are in my post.

This is the older RHB from the 2011 model year. It's running the latest available software.

2011 RHB: black NAV screen?

After working flawlessly for two years, the NAV screen in my 2011 RHB now comes up black (see pic below.) All other screens are normal and the radio works. I pulled the M12 fuse for several minutes...

Re: Questions about apps on 430N

To be fair, running Pandora in the head unit would require that it contain a cellular phone data modem. That would have been completely out of scope for the 430N.

Classic iPods work fine with the...

Re: 2014 radio upgrade

60k+? I had to replace the 18" tires on my 2011 Overland at 25k with the tread nearly gone. The original tires were nothing special.

Re: User Interface Changes (2011-2013) for 430

The only difference between that photo and the look of my 2011 unit is that the Sirius information pane uses graphics instead of just text. I can't say that's an improvement.

It uses the metadata inside each MP3 file on the thumb drive. Most handheld MP3 players do the same thing. I make sure the metadata are correct and I get exactly the hierarchy I expect.

Re: vss location 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo

There is no discrete VSS signal in this vehicle. Speedometer information is delivered to the NAV in packets over the CAN bus network.

Re: 430N - frequency noise / static when using the center console USB port.

There's no analog signal in a USB-to-iPod cable. The Monster cable is a ripoff. Maybe there's poor shielding on the 5-volt/ground pins such that connecting the iPod lets it pick up engine RF noise?...

Re: 2014 GC Speedometer display with Polarized Sunglasses

The display in the 2011MY GC is not affected at all by Polarized glasses. This makes sense -- it's an LED array, not a LCD display with backlight.

It does that if your phone is at the main menu. It doesn't do that if you're running some aps, for example Pandora and NPR News.

You may have trouble fitting the 430n to the 2008 Liberty because it needs the new high-speed CAN bus.

That wouldn't be consistent with the rest of the car's architecture and wouldn't require ICs. The wires are probably power/ground and CAN bus.
