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

Hey everyone..I purchased the silver package for my 14 Rango and I love it! Magnus and his team are awesome and provide the best customer service! I had my local shop run the front camera and all is perfect. Front cam turns on at less than 10mph and off at above. You can also just tap the screen and the cam image will go away. The removal of the lock out features works great with wanting to search a playlist of music. I can also play the dvd on the front screen while in motion. The software and cable truly work as advertised. As for those that are concerned with voiding their warranty, that is complete nonsense. As mentioned previously in post, the dealer must be able to prove without a shadow of a doubt that the mod is the reason for any issue. Furthermore, Customtronix gives you roll back software (I have tried it), and you can simply roll your Uconnec back to factory for any trip to the dealer you need to make and put the software back once you pick up the car. Installation(of the software, the camera takes a bit) takes roughly 8-10 mins, roll back software takes about 6-8 mins, so both are relatively fast.

Software allows you to install features at will, so you can pick what features you do or do not want. (I installed them all!)

One downfall (for Durango owners) is that installing all features you lose the 3rd row fold option but gain the "cargo cam" option which lets you control the front cam. not a deal breaker for me, I carry the USB stick with the software with me, so if I need to remove the feature and add it on the fly I can. I have done this and the entire process takes about 8-10mins. Not a ton of time, but a small pain in the ass. Given all the other cool stuff you get, not a big deal to me. Highly recommend!

Word on the street updates with maps and wallpapers coming around new yrs.

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

I have remote start and when I use it, the display is blue like an input isn't hooked up. Any clues to why?

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

Just placed my order for the silver last night.

This morning checked and already got the download email. Super fast!!! Just downloaded the software to my USB. I'm eager to go and install now! But i'm still waiting on the harness and camera. So now I have a few questions:

1)Can i install the JB now even if i don't have the harness yet and would I have any issues?

2)If i can install now, what exactly would i be able to use/see since i still don't have the harness.
