Question Re: Has anyone purchased & installed MYGIG in a 2011?

Would there be any reason to not just get an aftermarket headunit that would probably have better audio specs and be more versatile with added outputs?

I just finally picked up a Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT from Amazon. it was listed at about $1200 & they then sent me a 30% off coupon for Pioneer Car Electronics. Sweet!!

Does the Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT plug in directly? Do you have a 2011 Jeep GC?

Thanks.

I'm not clear on "plug in directly". The Z120 fits in the allotted space but needs to be mounted w/a dash kit. Also, the kit (a 2010 JCG kit was used since there weren't 2011 kits out yet) needs to be modified or it won't fit. Hope this helps!

I have question, what functions would be lost by using the Z120 vise the 340 or 730 radios with Nav?

brogan2424,

Bad question on my part, sorry.

OK, mounting kit required, check.
(where do you get this mounting kit?)

Does it plug into the JGC, or do you require a converter wiring harness?
(Crutchfield sells a $129 wire harness connection kit, is this required?)

And:

Do the steering wheel controls continue to function as designed?

Does the EVIC continue to function with the NAV system?

Any loss of features whatsoever?

I have 2011 JGC Laredo, X option w/NAV, 430 system.

Thanks, I'm new to this. Bear with me.

I don't know the manufacturer but it works great) The EVIC doesn't work w/the NAV, unfortunately. It shows that I'm listening to 80's on 8 because that's what was last on the old stereo before coming out. I haven't lost anything from the stock radio it came w/except Sirius. I personally prefer XM & that's what I have now. Hope this helps, guys...
