A first- time ENORMIS customer and North East, PA, resident e-mailed ENORMIS about adding Bluetooth to her 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. She had just purchased the vehicle and came with the OE factory Jeep Navigation unit, but no Bluetooth. She travels a lot for work and needs reliable navigation for finding streets in Pittsburgh, and easy-to-use hands-free Bluetooth to make phone calls.
Our advisor Doug Reichert priced out options to add Bluetooth to the factory Jeep navigation unit. To add the factory Bluetooth would have been $500–$600 for the kit. That’s a lot of dough for a factory Bluetooth system!
Doug asked the client to stop in the store with the vehicle so he could take a look at what ENORMIS would be working with. The 2008 factory Jeep NAV unit was not in the best of shape – the touchscreen was peeling – and the factory Bluetooth would have been cumbersome to use. Doug went over several options to replace the existing Jeep NAV radio with a new Kenwood navigation unit.
The Kenwood unit was up to 2018 technology standards. It even has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This gives the customer the best of both worlds: advanced Bluetooth with phonebook control, hands-free calling and the most up-to-date mapping from Garmin. Wait a second – did we just say Garmin? Yes, this unit has dedicated, easy-to-use Garmin mapping built in.
When she came to pick up her vehicle, Doug sat in the Jeep with her and made sure that she understood all the radio functions.
