I just read about the steering wheel controls when I was ordering. Thanks fo the input.
Fury, what are you going to use for your backup camera rca? Are you just cutting open an existing one or do they make ends without wires you can use?
What did you order exactly?
I have a ton of yellow RCA cables laying around. So I grabbed one and cut it. The yellow RCA cables are meant for video. I'll use that to interface the OEM backup camera with my aftermarket headunit. By the way, I don't have a backup camera on my WK2, but I plan on buying the OEM one from justforjeeps.com. Quite the spring project I have lined up for myself!!
Since I've upgraded the headunit, changed out all the speakers and added an amp to my WK2, I can pretty much answer any A/V question you might have capric621. Pick my brain all you want!
Jrunk: Both the DNX890HD and INE-W927-HD are 7" screen nav units. They offer pretty much the same features. I'm going Alpine because I'm an Alpine fanboy lol.
If you go aftermarket you lose the backup camera, UConnect, the USB in the armrest and SiriusXM. But both the Kenwood and the Alpine units I've mentioned here offer bluetooth and sat radio. If you're good with a multimeter and a soldering iron, you can hack the backup camera and the USB in the arm rest to make them work.
