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
-GPS Navigation

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.

Thanks!

There is only one button on the steering wheel for the phone. What others are you missing? If you have the all, there are only two blanks on the right side, and they're for the adaptive cruise control that's not even available on the Wranglers.

On the EVIC, can you display the pressure for each individual tire?

You are missing the the bluetooth module, the mic and then the steering wheel buttons. Not sure on the EVIC. You will need to ask the dealership service department about adding them.

The EVIC shows all the tires on the display.

I just noticed some blanks on the left and right side, I'll have to count the exact qty tonight when the wife gets home.

I didnt notice any special button or screen option to start the EVIC, not exactly sure where it would be. I purchased it for her DD, I dont get much wheel time lol.

My understanding is the 2014 has advanced EVIC able to display trans temps etc, on the screen. Just not sure if it's a purchased option or something already in the vehicle but just needs the connectivity group installed.

Just re-read that post I linked. Yeah, I completely missed it.

"To get the upgraded EVIC you MUST order CONNECTIVITY GROUP"

I was in the same boat you were when I bought my Jeep about a month ago. Shame on me I guess for not really noticing. I test drove a Sport that had the connectivity group, so I assumed the Sahara I bought would have it included. I bought all the parts off eBay and did the install myself. It really was quite painless. You will have to go your dealership and have them flash the sales code "RSP" in order to "activate" the bluetooth features. My dealership wanted to charge an hour of labor ($125), but I called a few dealers and one did it for $62.50. Here are links to the parts I bought.

I should point out that I don't believe the advanced EVIC options can be added after the fact. I think the vehicle needs the connectivity group from the factory. I'm sure someone can confirm, but I believe they are different clusters.

How experienced with auto electronics are you? Would this be a painless install for most people?

Put it this way. Every aftermarket car stereo I've purchased for my other cars in the past, I had it installed by someone else. The module I linked in a previous post came with a set of instructions that were very easy to follow. As long as you take your time and go slow you'll be fine. I would definitely not consider myself experienced at all when it comes to doing these things. But all of these pieces are literally plug n play. It took me longer to disassemble the dash to get to the stereo than it did to install the module. Actually the hardest part for me was getting the air vents out, they can be kind of a pain. But from start to finish it took me about 90 min. I went extra slow cause I never disassembled a Jeep dash before.

My dealer wanted $600 for parts and labor and that didn't include the steering wheel controls. Just remember that after you finish you'll still need the dealership to flash the "RSP" sales code so you can use the bluetooth features.
