I'm just wondering if these differences are "software" related. Navigation support said Chrysler is hoping to release 2 more software updates by the end of this month into November.

Huh, two more? Why not just release one? You know the good one!

It should like they already know there's a problem with the 1st version for release, in November or there wouldn't be a 2nd version in the works.

RA3 = 8.4A
RA4 = 8.4AN

The A unit is the non Nav unit. Nav can be added at a later time, but even if it's added, it'll still be missing some features, compared to the RA4 unit.

RA4 8.4an comes with Navigation maps, i believe Sirius Traffic & Travel & you get FM radio in HD, also i believe it has a few more things

Where as the RA3 8.4a is only navigation ready & they charge about $500 to make the navigation work & you don't get as many navigation features, no HD & not to much more

Do you have a link to the '13 Forum? Not sure how to find that one.

ETA: Nevermind. I found it. Its not really a forum but a sub topic for this forum. I understand my confusion now. The title should read 2013 Models.....Not 2013 Forum.
