2012's Have Multiple Nav options?

I just realized that the two Rubicon's I test drove (at two different dealers) had different Navigation systems in them....has anyone else ran across this?

Yes there are two different systems available the 430 and the 730. Subtle differences between them, the 730 which I have has Bluetooth streaming and I believe 10 gigs extra storage on the hard drive. The navigation software has some subtle differences also and Ofcourse not to mention the price. If I had to do it all over again I'd probably save the money and just get after market nav. But I will confess that I am surprised by the quality of voice command support on these units, far better than what I found on my BMW and Acura.

These were completely different in regards to the Nav Software...the one I didn't buy was definitely a Garmin format but I can't place the software on my 730N package...

The one I test drove had the Garmin menus. A quick search says 430N uses garmin and 730N uses the mygig nav??

Were they both listed as 730s?

430 - Garmin
730 - Navteq (I think)

I wanted the 730 but got the 430 in the vehicle I located. So far it is just as good if not better then my GMC or Nissan I have had in the past.

both have same GB of internal memory(at least in the '11's)...the 730N actually has less available for music(pictures, contacts, ect...), i believe due to the fact that the nav sys uses more of the memory.

In addition, the 730 supports voice command for navigation, the 430 does not (non-nav voice commands are the same, I believe).

Both use Navteq data base with the high (future) cost of upgrade which is a pity because a pure Garmin GPS system uses Garmin maps and a lifetime upgrade costs less than a one time Navteq.

The 730N is a Harman Karden unit with integrated Uconnect module and is sourced from Becker. The Map display is much nicer unless you like the "cartoon like" Garmin display and the user interface/menus are less intuitive. It also features "bread crumb" mapping and ded reckoning when sat signal is lost. It also features Sirius Traffic which the 430N does not have and voice commands for nav while in motion although using the voice control for nav is slow and frustrating in the extreme.

The 430N is a Mitsubishi Electronics sourced unit with a Garmin interface and a separate Uconnect module.

I have a 730N in a 2008 WK and a 430N in a 2011 WK2 and I chose the 430N for the 2012 JKR because the features of the 730N were not worth the extra premium to me.
