Re: Navigation Issues

At this point if it were possible to swap out the head unit and retain the vehicle controls I would. Instead I'll run navigation on my phone and bitch at Jeep for shipping a shoddy product whenever...

Re: Had it with the Active Braking

Typically I get the FCW freakout when a car around 50-75 yards ahead in a relatively low speed area, 30-50, exits the road on the right. The ACC tends to take its time realizing someone has moved out...

Re: Navigation Issues

I use CoPilot on my Samsung Galaxy S5. I just asked it to route me from here in Alameda CA to Halifax NS and it took two seconds to calculate the 2800 mile route, and an alternate. I paid about $50...

Well that does explain why it is abysmally slow. It, perhaps, also explains why it understands my English accent but isn't so good with my wife's Californian. Probably also why it repeats back "Sweet...

Re: Navigation Issues

That's just not true. This thousand dollar system is not as good as CoPilot on Android which cost something like $35. The auto zoom is abysmal and the time predictions aren't near as good as Garmin...

Re: 2013 GC Rust.....Jeez!

I live in California, my 3 month old 2014 GC has never seen salt. I have rust on the suspension parts, like they are made of uncoated mild steel. My 11 year old 2003 VW did not have rust on the...

Angry Had it with the Active Braking

I find the active braking and the pre-panic braking linked to the FCW to be dangerous at the very least. At 6'3" and not being a lightweight I have no problem stamping on the brakes however hard I...

Re: Navigation Issues

I was a frequent renter, I rented all the time, at least every two to four weeks. So Alamo put me in a lot of different Chrysler products over the last 30 months. The navigation used to be the proper...

Re: Navigation Issues

I said it is like TomTom, it is always zoomed in too far to be useful. But it doesn't do as much as TomTom, so I doubt they are to blame. But it certainly isn't Garmin. Back in 2013 model year...

Re: Navigation Issues

This navigation system is certainly NOT Garmin. I have used every major Garmin release since they first had rudimentary maps on the GPS III and V and this is not it.

For me the worst of this is...

Do the MOPAR rock rails cover the DEF injector?

And if they don't is the DEF cover compatible with them?

Running the DEF harness under the body like that, without protection, seems ludicrously careless for a "trail rated" vehicle.

I will be...

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

Yes, you have to buy decent ones. I wouldn't consider the cheapest ones.

PNY Turbo 3 128GB drives claim up to 130MB/s write speeds. But I'd be very surprised if they could achieve that in the long...

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

USB1 was rated at 12Mb/s, USB2 is 480MB/s, USB 3 is 5GB/s but most devices can't do anything like that. The highest rate needed for music is 320kbps, but finding what's there is the hard part....

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

I have been a professional electronics engineer for 30 years, so by decent I mean fast and reliable from a well respected manufacturer. Thumb drives are commodity now, there's nothing to them, just a...

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

A decent 128GB thumb drive is $50 on Amazon. For this use the internal drives and iPods aren't keeping up with the times.

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

I never even thought of trying, I stuck a 64GB SD card in the slot but then plugged my iPod in too. I also used the bluetooth interface to play TuneIn Radio (BBC Radio 4 is awesome). But that's all I...

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

Try setting your iPod to act as a hard drive. I use Winamp (because I hate the useless iTunes interface and don't ever buy MP3s because I can get the disk for the price of the tracks then I don't...

Re: Music people: uConnect confusion- help plz

I use an old 160GB 6th generation iPod from around 2007. It has about 12500 tracks and a bunch of books. That pre-dates the Touch. The system in the 2014 Grand Cherokee had zero problems with that....

Navigation autozoom question

I have tried the autozoom set to far and that gives me a few hundred yards of road with virtually no detail. This is utterly useless for maintaining any sort of situational awareness. You get no...

Re: Undependable GPS Performance

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

I presume no manual for the v6 here? Any idea when we will see pricing?
