Test drove an SLT today in New York. Must say the Nitro looks just as good in person if not better :D A little bigger than I thought which is a plus since I thought it would be the same size as the Jeep Liberty. Engine sounded vicious which was a pleasant suprise. Was ready to order one when the dealer informed me that the MY GIG option is not currently available through the dealer ordering system. I would be willing to go ahead without the 20 inch wheels which are also not available yet but there is no way I am ordering or buying one without the MY GIG.... Anyone out there have any idea when the MY GIG's will be available to order with a new Nitro?

It is currently set to available to enter prduction on November 1st. In so far as having your dealer install one, clarify what they will charge. Usually If I install a mopar part (on any mopar vehicle) after the fact, the price is about 2-5 times the cost of the factory option on a factory order.

Also, the production date as posted by Chrysler sometimes gets bumped about a week before it is scheduled. In other words, the date may change on the Monday or Tuesday before November 1st.

Re: When will MY GIG be available for ordering?

I have attempted to call and get correct answers from several dealers and no one can give me a correct answer. I want to order a fully loaded SLT or RT. First I am told I can then I am told that the RT is delayed due to the engine (4.0) not available. I then ok the order of a loaded SLT and come to find that the MyGIG is not available and may not be until JANUARY !!!! Does anyone have the real info? Dodge dealers are so confused. All I want to do is order a car and promote the heck out of it...

Yeah, no reason to get it unless its fully loaded. But one question, I think its awesome to have 20 gigs worth of space for songs, but why would I need to store digital pics in my car stereo?

I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota that I just cannot wait to unload for a Nitro but I also want the myGIG system. Does anyone have a for sure ETA on this? The dealers here dont know either and I am not getting in to payments for a car that is not fully loaded ... I made that mistake with the dakota.

I work for a Mopar Electronics distributor. I've been told by Mopar it will probably not be available until after the first of the year.

If it were me I'd cancel the order and submit a new one, the MyGIG should be in the system any day now (unless that is you like the idea of a portable nav). The MyGIG is so much more advanced, plus of course it is "built-in" and much less subject to theft like the Navus will be.

Also, something is not right about the vehicle arriving mid month. If it is being ordered from the factory no way will it show up within a couple of weeks of ordering. Are you sure the dealer did not rush you and is simply going to get one from another dealer that has one in stock?

That timeline does seem off. I asked a local dealer about ordering an SLT, and he said to expect a 2 to 3 month wait. I think this is pretty standard for ordering any new car. That said, if you are going to actually end up with the exact car you want in a couple of weeks, it doesn't matter much if it's coming from the factory or another dealer. But, if you really do want the Mygig, I'd wait for it. You're probably going to have the car for a long time, and may regret not having it equipeed exactly as you'd like.

Re: When will MY GIG be available for ordering?

This will be one of the first three Nitro's to come to Alaska. Shipping here is quite different from down south,barge or plane only no over the road. Talked with him a couple months ago & whatta you know one is eqipped exactly as I wanted except for the mygig. If the navus don't work out I can always order the mygig later but if I have GPS & Sat. Radio I'll be happy.Thats why I changed my avitar Silver SLT is mine.

Re: When will MY GIG be available for ordering?

Hi there - drove the Nitro yesterday and am ready to buy, will be dealing more directly with my dealer on Monday. I wondered: I'm looking for an SLT with MyGig, leather and sunroof. I understand here that MyGig production just started Nov. 1 - does anybody have a realistic timeline for when I might get my SLT if I order now? Are the first ones with MyGig satisfying pre-orders? Will any be available to dealerships? Will it be weeks or months? Any insights anybody has will be really appreciated. Thanks!

Re: When will MY GIG be available for ordering?

I RECIEVED THIS EMAIL FROM DODGE TODAY ABOUT THE MYGIG

Thanks for contacting Dr.Z regarding MyGIG in the Dodge Nitro.

My research shows MyGIG will be available with the Dodge Nitro, with
select packages, immediately. You may wish to check out our website
or check with local dealerships for availability.

Thanks again for your "Z"mail.

Sincerely,

Brent
