I purchased a 2009 Dodge Journey w/the MyGIG system and I must say I'm quite disappointed.
First, it was advertised as 30GB... but a little over 10GB is used for "system" use. What a bunch of BS...
Next, I loaded about 1500 MP3's onto the MyGIG... the nice thing here is that if you put the music in folders on your thumb drive, they'll be imported into playlists of the same name! That was great... but... if you have a huge playlist you'll be frustrated trying to get to the last track. Let's say your playlist has 300 songs in it and you want to scroll to a track starting with Z... good luck turning that darn **** endlessly to get to the last track. Chances are you'll spin it too fast and MyGIG will become confused and say "<unknown>" for the title names you're scrolling through and then throw you back at the top of the list for another round of spin the ****.... and you'll have the same problem. The only way to successfully get to the last track would be to wait about 2 minutes for all the titles to load and then you won't have the "unknown" track name problem.
I also like to listen to audio-books (MP3 format) in the car and found that sometimes, when I press the REW button to back up a few seconds, the radio gets confused and then just advances to the next track w/o warning. With a song, this is easy to tell... but with an audio book... woah! Talk about confusing the few times it happened! Quite frustrating...
The Nav computer seems to have issues as well... I'm driving down the freeway and select POI to locate restaurants... it says there's like 80 restaurants in the area, but it only displays about 20... what's up with that?! Upon further investigation, turns out it only likes to display restaurants on the side of the freeway that you're travelling on! Being a computer engineer, yes, I turned around to test this theory and it was correct. Too funny.
There's some other issues, but I'm tired of typing. I think a little more thought and testing could've been put into this system...
If anyone has updates or knows how to fix these problems, please... drop me an email!
