According to the 730 I have used 6.645GB and have 13.677GB available.
To make it easy for this exercise I have used about 1/3 of the available space and have 2/3 left.
So if 1776 songs take up 1/3 of the available space there should be room for 5,328 songs total.
Where did Jeep come up with 4,000 songs?
It depends how long each song is, so maybe your average song is shorter than 4 minutes then You have more space for more songs.
Also if You compress your MP3 och WMA files from CD ripping in the computer more, each file will be less big and more songs fit on the HDD but the audio-quality will also be less because it is less information in a smaller file.
All music was ripped directly from the CD's. I feel kind of stupid now knowing I did not gain any quality doing that. I could have dragged and dropped from my computer to a thumb drive in about 1/10 the time or less.
As for the length of the songs mine is a diverse collection with some of everything from Beatles, Willie, YoYo, B.B., Roy (Orbison & Clark), Jerry Jeff, Queene, well you get it.
If any one have the 730N and the time, test the audio quality for us.
Maybe four guys in the wrangler that judge the audio quality on a original CD with for instance good band like ABBA as I am from Sweden
1: Play the orginal CD in 730 direct
2: Copy the CD to the HDD in the 730
3: Rip the CD in the computer to the best setting of mp3 and copy that to the HDD in the 730
4: Rip the CD in the computer to the best setting of WMA and copy that to the HDD in the 730
What option sounds best? Details, clarity, bass, tremble etc
Best regards from Sweden
That test would be very subjective and based solely on the listeners interpretation of the sound. I can tell you pretty easily what order the options you listed above will sound best.
1) The best fidelity is to listen directly to the source, listen to the original CD in the head unit.
2) The next best option would be to rip your music on a computer using CDex at a bitrate of 320 using the Lame MP3 encoder (see this site for more information CDex | Open Source Digital Audio CD Extractor with more than 40,000,000 downloads).
3) Ripping to a PC using WMA will lend the next best fidelity (unless you rip WMA lossless, then swap 2 and 3).
4) Ripping directly in the unit to WMA will probably end up with an MP3 bitrate equivalent of 128 or 160 which is pretty easy to hear a loss of fidelity. This should be your last option.
Now that being said, the audio system in the Wrangler is not anything near a $10,000 home unit. I would suspect few people would be able to hear a difference between 1 and 2. Put the vehicle in motion and I doubt you would hear a difference between the first three options. Option 4 I would just avoid period as the quality is crap to begin with.
yep, ive got version software 2.116 also over here. (dubai UAE)
there is definitely a problem with entering gps data co-ordinates.. it does not accept the last digits of the seconds part of the geo data.. , well it does for the North part of it, but not for the e/w part of it.... am i the only one having this issue?
Can anyone get a playlist from an iPod Nano 5th Gen. to play using Voice Recognition? I previously had a 430N in my other 2012 and it worked fine. I would say "Play Playlist Rock" and it would jump to that playlist. The 730N won't recognize my command.
My firmware is 2.12 and I've already done voice training. The Playlist VR function is the only thing that doesn't work. I checked another 2012 JK w/730N and 2.12 firmware and it acted the same.
I have 730n on my 2012 jk and yes it takes a bit of hit n miss to use. I find myself using my iPhone to find places & addresses sometimes if the 730 cannot.
Sirius free for year is probably the real reason it's more expensive.
That's what we have knocked off the Sirus capable radio for the Jeep since it's not available in Hawaii.
On the plus side - it's 80 degrees.

I just set mine to auto-brightness and it uses the setting I have for my instrument cluster at night.
It is the setting you have set your interior lights too. The dial on the turn signal is what sets it. There is a click you will feel that is just before the interior lights come on. That is what your looking for.
I just got the 730N, I got a 3 month trial of Sirius radio. No issues with the radio. However, I called back Sirius to get Travel Link working and they told me that I have to have 2 (two) radio ID's in the 730N to get the data for travel link. I told them that I could only find one.
I did an update to the new software 2.12 with no issue.
Anyone have the issue of not getting Travel Link activated?
Does there have to be two radio ID's in order to get travel link? (I talked with a sales person at Best Buy and they told me that most radio's only need one.)
Any help would be great, I was on the phone with Sirius for two hours and they told me that would call back in 7 to 10 days!! no wonder the company is doing so bad. And I'm a stockholder...what was I thinking of buying that stock?
Quick question guys... How do I get my voice to be recorded when the promoter says the name of my iPhone... When I picked my jeep up from the dealer... We set my phone up... And the sales man said the name I wanted, but I got tired of hearing his voice everytime I selected my iPhone.. So I deleted the phone, then re-connected it! How do I name my phone audibly?
Stumbled on a semisolution for one of my 730N issues.
The bluetooth connection with my Droid 2 Global was iffy at best, never reliable and hard to reisablish when the connection failed. After perusing our and other forums with no "for sure" advice I decided to delete all bluetooth pairing except the Droid. I had pairings for the Droid, my iPad2, my laptop and my wife's iPhone4.
After that all it works "most" of the time. The only other time it stumbles is when I park it for several days when I fly out of town to work. Even then I don't have to stand one one foot, rub my stomach and pat my head all at the same time to get the connection back like before.
I realy don't like work arounds for equipment I pay that much for but it is what it is.
