The silver and gold come with an adapter containing the video and audio inputs. That cable connects between the radio and the stock harness. You download the software from Customtronix website. Login to your account there and you should be able to find it.

Thats what I thought, I emailed them. I ordered the gold and got the software emailed to me in a link, the front cam and the cargo lamp cam, no adapter. I saw in a youtube video from Magnuson that they were shipping USB FOBS too but I didnt get one, dont really need it now adays, but def. need that adapter.

Yeah, the cameras won't do much good without the adapter. I received it all in one package.

Figured as much. I got 2 boxes, one was the cargo cam cables, one was the front cam with everything and one was the cargo lamp itself. Ill see what they say.

If anyone bought the Gold package that came with the Ram 3rd brake light and camera, I'd be interested in buying it if you have no use for it. Please send me a PM.

Thanks

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Hey guys, this has been an awesome thread to read. Thanks to everybody for sharing experiences and making these products better.

Me and my 2014 JGC just moved from New York to The Netherlands. My JGC has an 8.4AN with (obviously) US maps and the JGC comes with a factory reverse camera. With the customtronix products, I hope to replace the US maps with European maps.

Before placing my order, I hope you guys can answer these questions.
1) My JGC came with a factory reverse cam. With me ordering the bronze jailbreak, I get to keep this revcam functionality, right?
2) In the US, I never activated my Uconnect. Is there a need to do so?
3) The uconnect website just told me that there is a uconnect update available (14.25.05) for me to install. Do I have to update uconnect first before converting to the customtronix software or can I just update to customtronix software straight away?

Thanks,
Lennart

Hi,
You will never lost your revcam function.
No need to activate your uconnect, in europe it isn't possible.
Magnus will give you the newest software when you order your package.

I would suggest you to buy the silver one.

Thanks!

May I ask why you recommend silver over bronze. I thought the difference lies in the front camera. I think it is cool, but with the international move I have so many things going on right now, that I am not sure if I want to start on mounting and wiring under the hood right now. Am I missing any other advantages? Also, Customtronix told me I could always later upgrade from bronze to silver against incremental fees.

Yes you can later upgrade but it is very easy to do, if you have to remove your uconnect then do it just once and the job is done.
You can leave the video cable in the cabine and later wiring onů.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I posed a question earlier which went unanswered. Does anyone have any idea what we should do with Lockpick if and when the new US map update is released? Is Magnus going to somehow incorporate those maps into an update or do we install them ourselves? Further, if we buy and install them ourselves, do we need to rollback Lockpick to the factory software before doing so?
