#151 of 488 430N vs 730N media center

Does anyone know the difference between the 430N and 730N media centers? Seems like you can only order an Overland with the 730N center. So, if I buy an Overland with the 430N center from a dealer now, what would I be missing?

I don't seem to have a problem activating the rear wiper. It's only one quarter twist and works fine. As for switching media modes, it can be done by voice if that's what your referring to. Give me a follow up.

My Overland was supposed to come with the 930 but was delivered with the 430 instead. Chrysler told me they had problems with the 930 so they replaced it with the 430 without telling anyone. The 430 works fine and there doesnt seem to be that much difference unless you need that much more song storage. From what I can tell, the 430 has Travel Link and the 730 has the Traffic link... not sure what else there is. You can always call Chrysler and order the REAL instruction manual.

The salesman told me that the difference is that the 430 has the Garmin maps which is a plus but that the 730 has voice control for the nav. When I was looking I thought the standard was the 430 and you paid a few hundred premium for the 730.
#155 of 488 2011 GC Jeep Limited 4x4 auto headlights won't calibrate!
Feb 18, 2011 (11:25 pm)
So i bought my 2011 jeep at the end of august 2010, i noticed a scratch on the interior mirror and before driving it off the forecourt asked for it to be fixed. There weren't any new mirrors in stock so the dealership signed off on it with a promise to repair later. 2 months later and true to their word i brought it in for a regular service and they tried replacing the interior mirror and EVERYTHING has gone to hell!!
The interior mirror and auto hi beam headlights will not calibrate with the comms module in the main body of the vehicle. I have wipers and all my neccessary functions with the vehicle but no auto headlights and the interior and exterior mirrors go exceptionally dark in the twilight and nightime periods. The interior mirror button to turn off the dimming feature does not work, it just continually flashes at me and doesn't allow me to restore normal nightime vision. As a result of the exceptionally dark mirrors I am faced with impaired driving conditions through a huge lack of depth perception from these dark mirrors (almost pitch black!).
The issue has been like this since November when the dealership initially attempted the exchange and messed everything up. It has been in for a fix 5 times to the dealership, Chryslers STAR group have been notified since the first attempted fix and the vehicle has spent a 4 night block stay with the dealership in an attempt to fix this and over 9 days on seperate visits.
In my eyes it's a safety issue to drive at night cos you can't see the cars in your wing mirrors properly and the rear view mirror is just pitch black. I've given them plenty of opportunity to fix the issue, i didn't want to whine and be a fussy customer but now i'm just fed up! $45k on a fully loaded Ltd 4X4 GC and it doesn't work 3 months on from the initial repair attempt!
Can I get someone's honest oppinion if I should now get a lawyer and go crazy on Chrysler?
I filed for the lemon laws last week because Chrysler said they don't have a fix and it will take several months to find one. Since notifying the dealership and Chrysler I have heard nothing from Chrysler and the dealerships service manager is very relaxed about the whole thing!
Meanwhile I have a pregnant wife who either cannot drive the car at night or does so with the risk of crashing (which i'm never letting her do in a million years!!).
So really i'm unable to drive my car safely at night!
I loved everything about my jeep before the repair and would like some feedback from the forum.
Sorry this is so long, thanks for your time

Do you have another dealer close by? They might have a better mechanic.

good morning , thanks for the reply .what i'm talking about is the audio modes. like some cd's sound fine in stereo mode but, not in surround mode. i'll play the same cd in my challenger in the stereo audio mode and it sounds fine but i'll play the same cd in the jeep with the same radio code rer. and it sounds like crap . what i'm trying to find out is why i can't change my audio modes from surround mode to just stereo mode like i can in the challenger with same radio. well, thanks again!
#158 of 488 Off Road Pkg ?
Feb 21, 2011 (4:06 pm)
Just curious if anyone that ordered the Off Road Adventure pkg. and received touring tire instead of the on-off road tires that were supposed to come with it ever contacted Chrysler about it and what their response was. Are ther willing to do anything about the tires or not. I'm wondering how many of us are out there.

I, and many others, have the same problem. There are a number of posts on this forum, including my some what long winded rants. I have been advised that the district manager in my area has been instructed "not" to address this problem. It is so clear that the tires provided are in no way what is discribed in the jeep literature I cannot find logic in jeeps position. I am continuing to complain in hopes that many voices will be heard. If not I will go to the State Attorney General alleging a "bait and switch" violation. Really don't want to have to do that, life is already to complicated.
