I still love my MY12.
Mines got almost 95K on it now and has been faultless. The 5 speed at times annoys me as it can be a lazy box, but I haven't driven an 8 speed one to compare. My previous car (Ford Territory turbo) had the great ZF 6 speed.
As others have said, the diesel will use approx. half the fuel of the Hemi.

Such a wildly varying opinion on whether it's worth activating too. Hard to know which way to go. I've tried asking a few times on how this unit goes well off the road, say in the Vic high country but no one seems to know or can be bothered. Does it show tracks or any features at all?

That is un****ing believable that they would sell a vehicle with the potential for sat Nav and simply have it disabled in the Laredo. The info on the eBay website in the link sounds good if it can be trusted, but still $565 to ' activate '..

I've used mine around South East QLD, and it does show some offroad tracks, but not a lot. I keep the hema app on my phone as a backup. And the maps are way out of date, so it tells me to turn right instead of left where new offramps with flyovers have been built.

Thanks Benno. Does anyone know of a way to update these maps. I mean surely Jeep aren't selling 2017 models with long outdated maps.......are they?

They aren't selling 2017 models, still selling their 2015 stock, and the 75th models are 2016, but no doesn't appear to be any map updates available.

My factory NAV is awesome, unbeatable off-road, updates are released regularly and are great value for money........said no car owner, ever.

To get these sort of features I believe you will be looking at an aftermarket option, additional Nav unit, app for a phone/tablet or something like this:

Another feature I have seen on some Laredos is leather seats, yet this is not a current option. Was it an option on earlier models, or perhaps a special offer?

That is a seriously expensive way to go mate. Having a look at the new Hema HX-1 Navigator can be had for a bit over $600....makes the asking price of the Ebay activation code for the Jeep unit seem pretty stupid too.
