Upgrade to Nav

I'm looking at a my gig nav unit on eBay. I just purchased a Commander v6 4x4 with the standard cd player. Is it possible to switch it out with the mygig?

You will need a MyGIG adapter---> http://www.coastaletech.com/MYGIG_ADAPTER.htm

Also, make sure the MyGIG is for the slow speed canbus system that the Commander uses.

You don't get good mpg's with your 3.7 ? Just be glad you don't have a HEMI. I get around 10 mpg.

Something must be wrong. With mixed driving I get in the 15's with my Hemi.

Mixed driving and lots of miles weekly, I go between 11mpg and 20mpg with my stock 5.7L. I've seen 9 and lower in big city congested traffic though.

If you want good gas mileage buy a Subaru or one of those types of wanna be 4wd/awd.

I own 6 Jeeps, 4 XJ's(square body Cherokee) a JK(Wrangler) and a 5.7 XK(Commander). They all get the same mileage basically. The old 4.0 inline in the XJ's is a beast and will run forever but 16-20 is all they get. The wimpy 3.8 in our JK can't get out of its own way and gets 17-21 and the 5.7 Commander is a complete beast with all the power you will ever need and it gets 13-20

Its a Jeep Thing! Enjoy your new Jeep, forget about gas mileage.
