New Jeep owner 430n questions.
So, I purchased my first jeep this weekend and had a few questions regarding the 430n.
Iíve searched and searched but, I wasnít able to find definitive answers, only more questions and other options I was missing out on.
Itís a 2014 Unlimited Sahara. The sticker has this:
-Uconnect(R) 430N CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV $1,095
-40 GB Hard Drive with 28 GB Available
-SiriusXM Travel Link(TM) / 1-Year Subscription
-6.5-Inch Touch Screen Display
I think I now understand that I need the connectivity package to make the hands free phone option work. Iím getting ďuconnect unavailableĒ when I press the phone and voice button on the 430n RHB.
My steering wheel doesnít have the call options that I noticed on a few of the pictures. It has a couple blank plates instead.
So after honestly being pissed that a $1k option that has a phone button that isnít usable, I think I understand it needs this connectivity package to add the Bluetooth and mic options.
I also noticed EVIC is able to display specific information about the jeep on the 430n. Ran across this from several posts here, and didnt know it was possible.
The questions and what Iím not sure about:
1. Am I able to still get the connectivity package installed, after the fact?
2. If so, will it include the buttons on the steering wheel for phone/calling options?
3. If so, is it something I can purchase myself and install it myself?
4. Is EVIC part of this connectivity package or something else?
Any guidance is appreciated.
