Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I guess you didn't read many of the posts. When you get your 'update' you will find that it is already very out of date and doesn't include changes that were made the the road network years before...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

A reasonable amount would have to be based on competing systems. For Android systems that ranges from $0 to not much. A 7" Garmin system with lifetime maps and traffic is $247 on Amazon. A one time...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I really don't think that is a fair representation of the issues with this navigation system. It is slow, it has a poor user interface, even the most recent maps are significantly out of date,...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I will not be paying them good money for updating to a still out of date map on a bad navigation system. I only use the vehicle navigation for an overview of traffic or the route. The autozoom on far...

Re: RRO Super Sliders vs Mopar Rock Rails

I won't name names, but the tech who first said he fitted mine didn't install them properly and what you don't have is most of what he didn't use. When I took it back to show them that he hadn't done...

Re: VW admits to EPA that diesel equipped cars will only meet emissions when tested

Simple. Because the latest news says this affects Jeep too, though not which model. So people are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then we all get to take part in the class action and Jeep offers...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

So have they improved the software as well as updating the maps? The switch from Garmin to this crud was a major backward step. The auto zoom is useless on anything beyond a trip round the corner....

Re: Any high mileage diesels out there? How many miles do you have?

I have to agree.

I love the range, off road capability, comfort and convenience. But if the diesel emissions are going to die every year then this is a liability. And Chrysler is going to get...

June 2014. 22700. Head unit just replaced. Cat on order. The dealer tells me they are doing several cats each month and some have had several.

Re: 2015 EcoDiesel DEF FACTORY SKID PLATE

Well I guess that helps protect the wiring. But it isn't going to do a lot for the injector if you drive through some thick mud, or throw up some ice or rock off the wheels. Time will tell I suppose.
