Will this allow me to navigate to a city with out putting in an address. With my garmin GPS I'm able to navigate to a city without inserting an address. A lot of times I want to go to a city but not a specific address and I can't find a way to do with the 8.4AN navigation.

It will allow you to go to city or town, all you have to do is say no to the voice, when it asks for a street, it will route you to that town or city, but it will take you to the part of the town or city where the Government buildings are, like the City Hall or Magistrates Office is located.
So when you see the Road sign that reads, you are entering say for instance Buffalo NY., you will want to stop the Navigation Routing or it will take you to the Court House

Most everything can be done by Voice Commands or by pushing a Button, you just can't enter an address by pressing buttons, while driving, you can still ZOOM & other things while driving by pressing buttons

I wish they would put a list of usable Voice Commands in the radio manual

i believe at any time you can push the HELP button & learn some other things, you may even be able to go to which ever mode that you choose, radio, USB, CD, Thumb Drive, Ipod, or Navigation modes & press the VR button & say the word HELP, or something like that

I still have not read what the MORE button does ??

Lockpick said two months for their solution and that was last month. I've always had lockpicks (x6 of them) and they are great. Looking forward to Nav-TV solution to add the rear camera, unlock the video, etc.
Did your Nav-TV solution arrive yet?

Nope, still waiting...I get a note about every three of four days saying "today"...I'm trying to be patient but honestly it would be better if a vendor didn't speculate, just tell us a firm date.

I HOPE I get it by this weekend...I literally can't wait to get a rear view camera and unlocked navigation.

I hate the wait but I know they are trying...

I will do a full write-up on the install and how it works as advertised...

Got Any updates? I got a back up camera installed last Friday and there are issues with it freezing up and having a grainy picture. It's back at the shop today getting fixed. They were thinking they needed a different power source for the camera. Also getting an Auto Start installed today cause us Canadians are't good enough for Uconnect. Ill update this once I get my truck back tonight.

The company name is Shark Mobile the can be found at sharkmobile.com

It literally took them 9hours including install to get it to function properly. We needed a third key which they modified to only work for a few seconds after the auto start button was pressed. It had to be setup to shut the truck off as soon as one of the doors were open cause of the push to start technology. I'm not exactly sure how they did it but it works. The auto start keyphob only works to start the truck though not unlock or lock the doors. They said everyone was saying it couldn't be done so they wanted to be the first to do it lol. Apparently I have the first RAM sport to have a functioning auto start
