Alpine Navigation Radio Rear Camera Bust
By RobertB on
2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
The AWD has a heavy draggy feel, especially turning. There is no manual switch on the rear camera (unlike RV), so no way to monitor a trailer via camera. It's instant off, so if you pull up, you lose the view. Objects are much closer than they appear. Adjusting the brightness of the nav unit is possible, but no adjust for when in radio mode, except ineffective dash brightness. I have a towel taped over the dash as all settings are way too bright at night. Per tech there is no way to turn off the display. Per dash computer, MPG has been a disappointing 11.5 MPG over the first 300 miles. Roadside coverage is watered down - no coverage for lockouts, flats or gas.
Vehicle has quiet smooth ride. Heated seats are toasty, and have a lower setting available.
Manual dim of the LCD display screen (like RV). Manual on/off rear camera (in addition to automatic when reverse, again like RV).
