Thanks for the info. If it happens again and I can't find any loose connections, I'll disconnect the MyGig from the radio and see if the problem still periodically happens. What did you do to resolve it?

I posted some of my installation of the MyGig Lockpick at this link:

It has a written description of how I took off the dash to get to the radio.

kpeoples My radio has finally been replaced but the tech that installed the new radio scratched up the dash around the power window buttons

At leat you can drive ypurs....

My 2012 JKU has been carried to the Stealership on a "roll back" for the 2nd time in 7-days (only 1300 miles on her)

She keeps blowing "coil packs" and this time (2nd) the Dealer does not know why

Said they have called Chysler for assistance Yes! I am pissed

I'm not going to blame Chrysler yet because I may have a lose connection that I caused when I opened up my dash to install the MyGig Lockpick. If my radio loses power again, I'll tear open the dash and make sure everything is plugged in before I make an appointment with my dealer.
+1. Today the whole system locked up and I couldn't access the radio, nav...nothing. I couldn't even turn it off. It just had a radio screen and didn't respond to anything. No music, nada. Turned the Jeep off when I went into the store and when I came back out, it worked fined. Second time this happened...

730N Data Dump

I've had my 2012 with the 730n for 5 months. The only problems I've had with the system is with the nav portion. It has dumped all my "saved locations" including "home" about four times. I have reentered the locations only to have them disappear again. I have not disconnected the battery or anything else that should cause this issue. Ideas?

I agree with you if you had taken it to multiple dealers. You don't say if you did. If you only took it to one, you got a bad dealer. All brands have bad dealers unfortunately.

You guys with your fancy smancy navs. I'll take the bottom of the barrel stock crap and use my iPhone for directions.

They still do not have the radio yet and it is Nov 20th.

After talking to Jeep and the dealerships it turns out the radio has been sitting at the dealership for the last 30 days and the dealership didn't even know. WTF. Wait,it gets better. After a part has been at the dealership for 30 days they send it back. So my radio was sent back.

On Nov 6th I talked to the service mgr and he told me that they did not have the radio and he had no idea when it would be in. He even said he would have the parts mgr checking for. Meanwhile it was at the dealership the whole time.

I love my... and I'm done with this dealership!
Wow, that's a sad excuse for a dealership.... What was the name of the dealership again? :P

mjf232 I'd be livid if that happened to me and demand something done qucikly. No way in hell I pay $30+grand for a brand new car and not have a working radio. If the person u talk to cant remedy ur situation then they better find someone who can. This is unacceptable and outrageous.

Man im gettn hot about it and its not even my car
11-11-2011 06:25 PM
kpeoples If my dealer does not do something next week I'm taking it to another dealer and never going back to them.

LBrito My 730N took a dump after 3 weeks also. No replacement yet, one was "ordered" though. It's been about 2 weeks.

Go to another dealer and complain to Jeep about your original dealer.

You can also try complaining to higher people at the dealership to see if you get anywhere.

glowingghoul Your dealer is full of crap.

The hard drive is failing, and they have to replace the 730. Simple as that.
