After I got my new 2014 Overland, I called the phone number in the back of the Users Guide to get paper manuals. They are free to the first buyer of a car. I just received a Uconnect 8.4A/8.4AN Owner's Manual Supplement - First Edition. It has a section for the 8.4A and a larger section for the 8.4AN. It has 260 pages. I just looked it over briefly and it is the best description of the Nav functions that I have see.

I also got a 630 page Owner's Manual - Second Edition and a 40 page book covering Warranty information - Second Edition.

I highly recommend that new owners order all three.

I just noticed that Jeep has posted a new manual on their Owners site.

It is the 2014-Uconnect-84A-84AN-Multimedia-2nd. The first edition, that Jeep just mailed me, had 260 pages including a section of the 5.0 radio. The new one has 261 pages without the 5.0 radio - so there must me more info.

Google 2014-Uconnect-84A-84AN-Multimedia-2nd, download the pdf, and do some pre-delivery research/review. I'm about four weeks away from delivery, but I've gone over this manual, and the Jeep GC Limited manual, a number of times in order to have a familiarity w/ the bells and whistles.

Definitely note that the manual for the 8.4A (page 128-129) mentions a traffic button for the 8.4A (2014 Grand Cherokee). The 8.4A does NOT have traffic so please be informed.

However, Uconnect 8.4AN does include one year of traffic. Of course, there's always the question of whether or not traffic does any good in the specific area where the Jeep is located!

FWIW, I GC Overland had traffic when using the Nav system. What ever enabled it, was enabled by the dealer.

The first few messages, I had no idea what the nav system was trying to tell me. (I thought it would only issue directions.)

I don't normally use the Nav when going back and forth to work. I know how to get there <g>. But I might try it for a few weeks to see if I like the traffic updates.
