Built in Navigation system

I am looking to add a Navigation system to my 09 unlimited Wrangler. Does anyone have any suggestions for an after market navigation system that is plug n play?

Pick up the factory RHB system. It is a Garmin unit thru Chrysler. If not, just use a Garmin portable unit.

Don't get the Chrysler unit. You will have to pay $150 a year to keep the maps updated.

Use your phone. It's pretty much the only navigation system out there that has the latest maps and traffic information for free.

That doesn't always work if you don't have cell service.

I would suggest getting a windshield mounted GPS with lifetime maps. Relatively cheap considering the lifetime maps thing.

That concern is antiquated. Both Apple and Android have had offline map support for a couple years now.

For the entire US? I've only been able to download particular areas and you can't search for anything.

^This. Even if you save a google offline map, search results are unreliable without cell data.

A standalone GPS or Navigation builtin Audio Head Unit are built without the intent of cell data. While they may not always be as precise as google or apple maps, they do a decent job from anywhere you can get GPS signal.


To the intent of the OP: Only a Chrysler unit will be fully plug and play. Any good brand navigation head unit will support adapters for Steering Controls, and some support the Maestro system that integrates the rest of the Uconnect systems.

The Chrysler unit is way overpriced new and has poor sound quality and configuration.
