Read, read, read, all the posts. This site is great for education and everyone is helpful. In the end, it'll be your jeep how you want it...not how we want it. I've had many manual cars and trucks but prefer the auto for my daily driver (DD), I looked at all the options available, read the posts on navigation like you're questioning and decided against it. I know where I'm going and if not, I grab the garmin I have. Also went for the dual-top group (soft and hard top) as it's cheaper during purchase and I wanted a hard-top for winter. Many different threads so if you have a question, search the forum as it's probably been asked. I spent about 3 months reading this and other forums before I bought and couldn't be happier.
