Here is some interesting food for thought...if you pay for Sirius XM Guardian services, as I do...for vehicle theft location services, it is rendered useless if your Navigation is malfunctioning in your Uconnect. Or even worse, if a thief simply pulls fuse 37, then theft location services no longer function. All you get is a message for unable to locate vehicle.

Listen, I know we call our cars boats, but that doesn't mean they're Marine-Friendly... Can't go joyriding a Cat through the lake... But now I wanna see a Hellcat powered speedboat... Lol

Hickster, your GPS rightfully should show that you're in a lake.
Okay, technically in an ocean. With some buildings, palm trees, alligators, and snakes, added.

Damn. Yet another reason not to ever go to a dealer.

Mine’s been in the lake or making off-road excursions for about a year now . It’s a 2015 that’s never had an update so I’ve been thinking of getting the dealer to do do an update hoping for best .

Just waiting patiently for the insurance companies...the worst part of owning a high performance, expensive, car is that the insurance want to charge you a premium price to cover it, but then when something happens...its a Dodge Neon in value.

It just keeps getting better..the insurance for the other vehicle is valid and enforce at the time of the accident..but they are underinsured....so nothing has happened yet in regards to fixing my vehicle...if it is even repairable.
