Jeep Grand Cherokee Electronics and Navigation



  • The 730N Nav unit is flush mounted and there is no sun shade/hood over the screen. Most of the SUVs I have looked at, other than Jeep have a recessed screen and some type of hood.


    Does anyone know of an aftermarket accessory that fits on the dash and provides a sun shade for the screen?
  • I have the same problem, have you been able to fix it or did you just have to replace the system?

    Hi All,

    Wondering if any Overland owners can assist. I test drove an Overland today, and may have purchased if not for the clunky navigation system.


    a) When asked to "find nearest" its list selected destinations over 20mi away, or didn't properly recognize the question. For instance, "Big Hero" was its result for "Italian restaurant".

    b) Can the driver navigate the system menus from the steering wheel? The salesman suggested we'd have to touch the screen each time, but doesn't that defeat the purpose of keeping the driver focused on the road?

    c) Is the guidance voice volume adjustable?

    As a final note, I am comparing this navigation system to the Lexus & Acura, both of which seemed intuitive and understood voices with no "training".

    Any other inputs or comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have just bought a 2010 GC limited. it has the sirius radio with the navigation also. MY question is how do you adjust the radio balance/fade on this system. In the owners manual it says in radio mode hit the "audio" hard button on the right side of the unit to bring up the audio controls. Problem is with the nav feature there is no "audio" hard key. It is replaced by a "nav" button. I tried that but it brings up the navigation screen, not the audio control screen. Anyone know how to adjust the fade and balance on this unit?
  • I just bought a 2010 GC limited a few months ago and I am having a problem connection my Ipod to the radio to download my music to the hard drive. According to the owners manual, when you connect the ipod via the USB connector, a screen should pop up asking if you want to download your music? your pictures? or your pictures? When I connect my Ipod to it, nothing happens. I goes on like nothing happened. I tried two different Mp3 players and they both do the same thing. I complained to Apple and they said there is a software update available from Jeep to fix this. I went to the dealer and they want me to make a service appointment. In other words spend a few hundred for them to tell me I need a new radio for a thousand bucks. They won't even tell me if a software update is available. So does anyone have any ideas??? Thanks for your help......Jerry
