Default Does the 730n rer get weather updates

I purchased a 2011 dodge ram big horn edition and had the dealer add the 730n nav unit to the truck, they said it was better then the 430n. I love the unit and have read on different forums that it revenues weather updates and local fuel prices but I can't seem to find that feature in the menu. So is it true that the 730n has those features and if so where do I access that info.

Thanks

Don't have an answer but do have a question. Was the upgrade to the 730n just a software upgrade or did they have to replace the unit?

I have the 730 nav in mine and will see if I can find those features too and let you know...meanwhile here is a quote I found from another forum..."Navigation solutions feature SIRIUS Travel Link, providing real-time weather, fuel prices and more while on the go."

Yea I was wondering because when I purchased my truck it came with the 130 but I wanted the nav and they recommended the 730n over the 430n but it seems to me that the 430n has more features then the 730n

I looked last night and couldn't find it on my 730n. There really is no instructional guide for the unit though, so that doesn't mean much.

I looked it up in the 2011 Ram Truck User Guide and appearently you still need to have a SIRIUS Travel Link subscription to get these features.ELECTRONICS: Pg. 42NOTE: SIRIUS Travel Link requires a subscription, sold separately after trialsubscription included with vehicle purchase.• SIRIUS Travel Link brings a wealth of useful information into your vehicle andright to your fingertips:• Weather• View detailed weather conditions at your current location.• Ski Info• View ski and snowboarding conditions at ski resorts.• Fuel Prices• Check detailed price information for fuel stations near your current location.• Movie Listings• Check which movies (includes start times, ratings, run lengths andsummaries) are playing at theaters near your current location.• Sports Scores• View scores and upcoming events for all major sports.• Your favorite location, theater and sports teams can be stored for quickaccess.• Refer to your Media Center 430/430N (RBZ/RHB) User's Manual for moredetails.

That link You gave us for the latest media center radios didn't include Ram's newest navigation radio 730N (RHR) which is offered after Jan. 11, 2011. The 730 (RER) radio is no longer offered. Does anybody have a link for the 730N (RHR)?

i can seem to find anything regarding the actual manual for the RHR 730N

possibly you can call Chrysler at the same number that you can get the Owners Manual for your Ram from & request the Media Center book
here is the web page to contact them
