what HACK did my Jeep come with?

Just purchased a 06 limited with front nav and ves, I noticed during the test drive that I can change addresses while driving. also tucked by the center console near the carpet was a audio cable in the colors red and white, and it had a female to female adapter to make it longer or plug into a device?

I presume the last owner had a Iphone because the uconnect phone I erased said "iphone" in his voice. also I am confused why it was hacked to add addresses while driving, yet every-time you get in the jeep you have to press enter on the nav to proceed, I thought hacks deleted that step? is there a special button sequence I can press on the nav to find a secret menu for the hack?

thanks for reading my rant

That's not a hack by the way. A hack is to gain unauthorized access to a computer system possibly to do harm.

As far as I know legally and for lawsuit purposes Chrysler has a screen saying something along the lines of "don't use the gps during driving because you'll die." if you crash using the gps and sue them their defense is well we told you not to use it. I dot think the system WON'T let you use it during driving because of course a passenger can change the address. It's purely a warning that I believe is on all gps devices. Also The iPod or iPhone hookup may have been factory installed or possibly aftermarket. My aftermarket kit has the red and white audio cables and the iPod hookup. The previous owner may have had them hidden because he only used it for his iPhone. The red and white cables would have been for any other music device to plug into the headphone jack.

Wrong. His NAV has been hacked because you CANNOT put in info while driving in the OEM configuration. The previous owner probably installed the Lockpick device. On mine I have a NAV disc that was hacked and allows me to do it. If the Lockpick has been installed the cables you see may go to it to allow for another device to be connected. Check out the Lockpick HERE. You can take your dash apart to see if it has been installed.

I should have prefaced this with I'm only speaking from experience with my last vehicle that had gps. Yes with lockpick its possible. It's not a hack but it is a tweak to the onboard gps.

There is a software disk that was "tweaked" "hacked" or whatever you want to call it that allows changing destinations while in motion.

So it might not have a lockpic, first sign would be if the NAV disk is OEM or a DVD-R (Dual Layer)

If it changes the way it was intended to operate it is a hack.

Hack = modification of the software or hardware

Tweaking = fine-tuning or adjusting a complex system, usually an electronic device.

That would be a hack. I have one of those disks in my NAV unit.
