Today we bring you another edition of the Brandl Media Minute. Follow along with yours truly as I go through the steps needed to navigate using your Media Center 730N (RER) radio. In this episode I show you how to set your home address, use the “Guide Me Home” function, as well as how to navigate to a specific address using the built in Navigation system.

The RER radio can be found in many Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Vehicles, including but not limited to the Ram 1500, Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the all new Chrysler 300. See your local Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealer for more details.

If you have the 430N or any of the other navigation radios found in Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Vehicles and feel left out, rest assured we will get to you soon! We will also be covering how to pair up your phone with the Media Center Radios, as we did in the past with the Uconnect 8.4 Radio in the all new 2011 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300, as well as the 2011 Dodge Journey.

With all this technology, it’s easy to get distracted when you’re behind the wheel. Here’s what Chrysler Group LLC and Jeff Schuster with J.D. Power & Associates recently had to say about this issue:

June 29, 2011 9:44 AM- As more automotive manufacturers provide drivers with more electronic features and improved in-vehicle connectivity, expect to see a legislative effort to try to keep the roads safe from distracted driving.

That’s the prediction from J.D. Power & Associates‘ Executive Director of Automotive Intelligence Jeff Schuster. In the video above, our Betty Carrier-Newman continues her conversation with Schuster on a range of current auto industry topics.

In the latest installment, Schuster talks about what we can expect in vehicle connectivity, and what Chrysler Group is doing to ensure its Uconnect and related systems are intuitive and lets drivers stay focused on the road ahead.

As a reminder, in December 2009, Chrysler Group implemented a company-wide policy that prohibits employees and contractors from texting while driving.
