THE QUESTION: The base radio with u-connect... from what i've read the unit connect is a seperate module that works with the radio.....is there a way to keep the u-connect???
As of now, the only company working on interfacing an aftermarket radio with uconnect is Automotive Data Solutions, Idatalink mastero. The last update I have is late summer or fall for the uconnect version, Ford is the first up. The 2012 Kenwood radios DNX series will be the first ones. After that, I not sure who is getting it next. Their is a special connector in the HU for the mastero to plug into.
Here is a link to a youtube video demonstrating the system.
The new Kenwood DNX head units are faster, however, IMO the navi has taken a step back compared to the Alpine and Clarion head units.
Best for now.
