2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited - Fun With the Nav
October 03, 2007
The navigation system in the Jeep Wrangler has some interesting features.
This weekend, I needed to make a trip to Sears, sadly enough. It wasn't where I remembered it to be but I knew it was located nearby. So I asked the Wrangler's nav to save my sorry butt before I got too lost.
It has a button (well, it's actually touch screen, but you know what I mean) that reads "Where Am I Now?" then you can choose "Nearby POI" to find things like shopping centers, businesses, etc.
So I located my lost self, then searched for the nearest Sears. The enthusiastic Wrangler promptly directed me to what it thought was the closest Sears thousands of miles away in Massachusetts. "Turn left," it said.
At least it has a sense of humor.
The following day I asked it to direct me to Willow Springs racetrack and it gave me a very logical route with a groovy 3 dimensional map. Maybe it didn't want to do time at Sears either.
