Your 2012 Wrangler may share a Navi unit (Garmin 430) with a $400,000 Ferrari FF

Just thought I'd let folks know that the Fiat/Chrysler parts bin gets raided by Ferrari at times:

Giving me ideas of how to hack the 430 to show my own custom logo.

Funny thing is that Ferrari would probably charge you $3k to replace that headunit out of warranty.

A lot more than that - the Ferrari business model relies on lots of service and expensive service because it is the only way the dealers can survive - they just don't have much volume. Everything is expensive and complicated.

What I find funny is that people here knock EVERY sound system offered by Jeep, calling it "crap." Here you have it being installed in a $400,000 car with an interior containing more leather than your average Coach store. If it is good enough for Ferrari, it is good enough for a Wrangler!

They started this back in 2010 or so... I actually really like the 430/730N units from Chrysler. I know I'm probably in the minority on that.

Nothing against Jeep or the Garmin 430 (I don't even have the Navi in my JK so I wouldn't know), but exotic supercars aren't known for having good navigation & sound systems

Or maybe I've just been watching too much Top Gear!

I love the NAV unit in my 2010 Wrangler. Not sure what model it is, but looks very similar to the one in the pic above.

In fact I vastly prefer the NAV in my Wrangler versus the NAV in my 09 Audi A4 which is a much more expensive/luxury vehicle.

The steering wheel controls and air vent louvers on the $95,000 (est.) 2013 SRT Viper look familiar also, but I guess that's no big surprise since it's in the family.

Nope not in the minority.... I like the 430 N in my Rubicon.

I will admit I like the 430 better. I had a 730 style in my first challenger in 08 and was sold on the nav / uconnect from Chrysler.

I don't have a problem with mine either.
It's easily the nicest stock sound system I've even had in a vehicle.

I work as a ferrari tech.the california was the first to come with the chrysler nav radio in 2010.i priced one a while back and it was 18K from our parts department.I commented how my wifes T&C van had the same radio and was on only 24K with the radio,I guess the rest of the car was only 6K to build.LOL.
The FF appears to have a newer version of the radio.Whats funny Is I needed a approved phone listing and ferrari sent me chrysler documentation to give the customer.Well i guess we are all part of FIAT group.

You're not! Love my new wrangler with 730n. Read a lot of negative posts about it but must of them were inaccurate. Items they mention the 730n did not do actually does. A lot of options in settings!

No problems with my 430N either. My only gripe is not being able to load additional maps in to it for OHV trails.

Wow! $18,000 for the Garmin 430!

Can you confirm my comment that Ferraris are designed and marketed in a way which requires frequent and expensive service, with the goal to allow dealers to survive?

I've been watching Top Gear too much!
True, but GT and luxury performance cars are supposed to have top tier interiors and sound systems. The FF is a 4 seat all wheel drive wagon.

I thought Garmin had these maps available?

the service on a ferrari is relative to other cars,they do require a yearly fluid service,no matter what the mileage but that should be done on all cars.they also now come with 7years of service so thinking that the price is inflated is wrong.as far as volume,here on long island you would be amazed how many Ferrari's there are.They are also starting to use long life fluids like everyone else so the fluid service is becoming less involved.The dealers have no issue in survival as there are waiting lists to get new cars and you need to be approved to purchase one.the supply and demand are the reason dealers do well and also keep the resale values through the roof.some older models are selling for ridiculous amounts of money.
