730N Remove and replace with aftermarket

I've been thinking about this for a while. I have a 2013 WK2 Limited with 730N navigation unit.

Many people probably wonder why I would do such a thing. I feel it's outdated technology and unmodifiable. For example, the screen is small in comparison to many after market units, the warning screen that I have to wait for in order to see the backup camera when reversing is annoying, the inability to change destination while driving, and the overall interactiveness of the GUI. I know there is Lockpick, but I'm not paying $300 just to be able to have my passenger type addresses in when changing destination with various other options I have no need for.

I wanted to replace with dual din navigation system with much larger screen. From my understanding, selling the 730n will require me to get the 4 digit code from the dealership to pass on to the buyer.

Can the existing steering wheel controls and mic work with a new aftermarket system. Will there be any crazy engine codes pop up since the 730N is hooked up to another small computer system? I've searched forums high and low looking for the answers...or even better yet, a write-up.

Thanks and looking forward to hearing your responses.

Re: 730N Remove and replace with aftermarket

from what I read people have done it on here. The four digit code is a must and will likely sell your unit much faster and trust me people want them. also the new head unit should have relays to make sure no codes are thrown and the steering wheel controls work. good luck

Thanks for the feedback. I actually decided to see if someone replaced the 430. I seen some important info on one of these threads.

Looks like I will need the following:

Double-din Adapter Metra 95-6513B :
Metra 95-6513B In-dash Receiver Kit Fits 2011-up Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models — double-DIN radios at Crutchfield.com

Radio Pro, which interfaces steering control, navigation, and amp.
Pac-Audio.com Product Details | iPod Integration for your car and More by Pac-Audio - Connecting you to the future

Then the wiring harness and of course the aftermarket replacement.

Re: 730N Remove and replace with aftermarket

I actually did the swap from a regular non gps or screen oem radio to a 430n with no problems. the only time I ran into a problem was running the back up camera but that was because that did didn't come w my 2013 sucks they don't make the 14 trucks able to do this anymore.

which radio are you going w?

Re: 730N Remove and replace with aftermarket

Greetings,

I understand your feelings about the in-dash nav technology. I removed my 430 and for now until the technology catches up, including resolution, I went with the Pioneer's AppRadio 3 DA-210.

Between PAC Audio, Metra and Cruz, their are plenty of harness out their to integrate into your JGC. iDatalink Maestro for Chrysler is still being worked on (long overdue). This year at CES 2014, besides Kenwood that has the connection for the Maestro, Poineer's NEX series and Alpine has adapted for the Maestro. The Maestro will connect into the uConnect features, details were still not released.

Best for now.

I for one won't wonder why as I replaced the 730 in my limited with an Avic-z140 within 3 weeks of ownership. It helped that I already had the Pioneer from the car I traded in. With the correct adapters you will retail all functionality with the exception of the navigation prompts in the EVIC.

These are the adapters I used in my install:

The iDataLink Maestro solution was launched in December. Please visit the website for details and ask you local retailer to get you the parts you need.

iDatalink - Maestro - SR-CHR01-DS

Greetings,

Thanx for the update. I got frustrated waiting for it that I did not use it my install last fall. Because of that, I decided to go with the AppRadio 3 which does not interface with the Maestro. If I decide later to upgrade to the Pioneer NEX, I might decide to use and get rid of my current solution.

Best for now.

Sorry to hear that, but we did take our sweet time. Anyway, the NEX series Pioneer radios will offer full integration with uConnect, digital amps and the steering wheel controls, but will not offer gauges, vehicle info (TPMS with numeric pressure at each tire, battery voltage, and check engine codes) or parking assist. The 2013/2014 Kenwood DNX/DNN models add these features as do the 2014 Alpine 7,8, and 9 inch navigation radios.

Depending what floats your boat, choose your solution..

Cheers,

12V Guy
