Nav/Bluetooth Options?

The 2010 Sahara im looking at does not come equipt with these options. What are my aftermarket options? Is there a portable nav that comes with bluetooth? Is here a bluetooth device that i can use to intergrate with the stock radio that will mute the music and show caller Id? Is there something that will allow me to have "hands free dialing"? Thanks

I had the same dilemma. Went with a Pioneer x920bt. Couldn't be happier. Nav, Bluetooth, voice activated, etc.

I actually installed the mygig and have been very happy with it. I got a refurb off of ebay for cheaper then any pioneer or kenwood with the same options, and installed it myself in under 15 minutes.

Sirius even transferred my free 1 year subscription over to the new radio because I told them that the dealer did the install.

We installed a $1500 Kenwood DNX-8120 in my wife's Corvette.

We installed a $200 Garmin Nuvi-760 in my Suburban and also use it in the Jeep.

We BOTH vastly prefer the Garmin.

It has Bluetooth for telephone, has addressbook and Points of Interest, has live traffic and avoidances.

The Kenwood is cool. But the Garmin is the best for us.

Also, you getting a hard or soft top? You live in a rural or metropolitan area?

Point being.....how much bait do you want to dangle in front of the evil-doers?

Thanks I'm pretty sure the nav works great. However how is the bluetooth for your phone work? Is it clear on your end? Can the callers hear you well? Thanks

Actually, the bluetooth on the portable Nuvi is better than that of the Kenwood.

Dont get excited, though. Better doesnt mean "good".

They will get the job done but frustrate and annoy the hell out of you in the process.

Think of it like putting your cell on speakerphone...then setting it on the dash.

For hands-free calling, I recommend a simple bluetooth headset. Just be sure to take the headset out of your ear when you get out of the car so that you arent walking around like some kinda goober.

Just my $0.02

Zerokoo149...you didn't have any problems hooking up the mygig? My jeep originally had the satellite radio, not mygig, and when I upgraded it too all kinds of work on the dealer end, several times back & forth with Sirius, etc. Lets' just say I wouldn't have been able to do it myself as it required dealer action.

As to the rest of the posts...the mygig & bluetooth work great, but don't expect to carry a conversation if you've got your top off. Only good with the top on as far as I'm concerned...unless you pull off the road immediately if a call comes in!

I had no problems at all. Plugged it in and away it went. Then I installed the Mopar microphone to use the uconnect feature.

The most popular one I've seen in all Jeep Magazines and custom Jeeps I've seen is the Kenwood DNX6160. Kenwood - DNX6160

I have the stock one, and I love it, but if I had a choice from the start, I would have gotten the Kenwood. It allows more customization, and not so much factory annoying stuff.

Trying to picture how it would go down if I confronted someone on a Bluetooth headset in a line at a store. "Hey! Buddy! Take that thing outta your ear, you look like a goober...".

Only coming up with positive outcomes....

I was just talking to someone yesterday who says he doesn't even use his stock nav unit anymore, since he started using his docked android phone. The google nav software on the android phones is as good as anything else, and for offroading/biking/hiking/etc you can download navigation apps that use topo maps and other types of maps that you can download ahead of time and store on your phone. I have the Droid X and the screen is a pretty good size. And of course you'll have your bluetooth phone and music all integrated into the one unit that can plug into your vehicle's sound system. And you don't have to worry about it getting stolen out of your Jeep because you'll be taking it with you when you get out.

X2.

Also got an app that tells at a glance if it's a "top up" or "top down" day
