Derrr pressed send on Iphone before I finished the post.

Under my speedo my wrangler 13 displays the Sirius channel, but only when the car is parked and in accessory mode, anyone notice that or figure out how to get this displayed while driving?

It was mentioned on another thread. I believe the guy said he turned of the "ECO" alert in order to display the station.

The Garmin GPS info also displays there when you are approaching a new turn or road change.

Turn you ECO alert off under your preferences... you have to do it while stopped though FYI... Once it is turned off you will display your Music info (both Sirius, CD, phone, etc).

I need to recheck those preferences. I didn't see the option to turn off the ECO alert.

Go to personal settings
Then to Fuel Saver- turn that to "OFF"

That will do it for you

It should display the song on the radio itself. There's a button to push that will display the name of the song and the band as well. I don't remember the button! My jeep is still in the shop!!!

I know the info button on my 130n does it, but it doesn't feed through to the instrument cluster unless I'm doing it wrong.

No, it won't feed through the instrument cluster. It should show you directly on the radio unit itself. It was one of the buttons on the touch screen. I found it by accident when I was playing around with it when I first got it. But now for the life of me I don't remember which one it is and I can't go look because it's not here!!! Play around with the buttons on the bottom of the touch screen. One of them will make the information on the right hand side turn into the name of the song and the band who performs it. Like I said I found it by accident, but I knew it had to be there somewhere!

If you have the non-nav unit you hit INFO on the top and it will show you Artist and Song name- for all the music types (cd, Sirius, blutooth, etc)...

And no, it does not show Artist or Track name in the speedometer cluster... only the channel name
