Got this today -

"Dear Donald,

This fall, the all-new 2007 Dodge Nitro* comes roaring around the bend. This mid-size SUV is today's ultimate technological joy ride.

The optional MyGIG™ Multimedia Infotainment System† is one of the most sophisticated entertainment, information, and navigation systems. A 20GB hard disc drive provides ample storage for up to 1,600 songs and photos. Tune into SIRIUS® Satellite Radio for traffic updates with real-time traffic control. Factory-installed SIRUS® Satellite Radio includes a year of service provided by Dodge.

Visit dodge.com/nitro, to learn more about exciting features at Dodge.

So, my question is this - How soon can we get an adapt the MyGig radio to the Caliber? If the Nitro with the MyGig system is coming "This Fall", it seems it should be soon.

I was at the dealer couple weeks ago bugging them about the Caliber SRT4. They had no idea what i was talkin about apparently i showed a sales guys this site. They were all impressed. but anyway, he showed me a dozen or so order slips for nitros. i even took their only broucher(sp) thing. i would consider a trade. they wanted my Caliber for used sale.

I like the design of the nitro but the caliber does what i need too well.. i have a van already for hauling so i have no use for anything larger and a lincoln for going fast so need for anything with better performance. I will be looking into the rer nav unit though. Im sure there will be ways to get it to work with the caliber.

I was wondering this as well, because the new sebring has it, and now the nitro has the mygig as an option, so i was wondering if it could be installed into a caliber...as I am VERY interested. Are you listening DCX? That was a SUBTLE HINT!:rolleyes: Anybody know when it should be available, as the new sebring is pretty close if not available now, so it should be available soon! We just need somebody to be the guinea pig and try it!

There was a Dodge Nitro on one of my local dealers lot, I did not have a camera though to snap a few pics. Didn't look too bad, but too large for me. Also there was a Chrysler Aspen on a different lot, that baby is nice, but huge!

I didn't intend to start a comparison between the Caliber and the Nitro. Yes, the Nitro is cool but it's on average six thousand dollars more, larger, and has a V6. That's the size, price and gas mileage I sought to get away from when I bought the Calibers my wife and I now drive. However, the feature I most want on my Caliber is an in-dash GPS system that is hard drive or Flash Memory based, not one that uses DVD's for its map source.
