Could you imagine rolling with those 8.4 features in your JGC in the US...

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

I am about to pull the trigger on this or the US version of the Lockpick. The Lockpick is hardware based, Customtronix RAX Lock Pick is software based. Wife's blessings and all. I had the car in shop for a while and adding the front parking sensors as I originally intended might be $1000 dollar job between adding the sensors, buying a new harness, reprogramming and so on. As the sensors can only do so much, though realistically they would complement the camera when parking, I will definitely pursue the camera since it has more value for the money.

While I appreciate the elegant version of the Customtronix...here's something to worry about

Information and troubleshooting
1. Do NOT upgrade the Navigations Software (firmware) under any circumstances
First entry on the installation menu. It pretty much means you are stuck with whatever version of UCONNECT you have until you take some more steps to revert back....then go forward with the software hack.

But best if I send them an e-mail, get some info and prices and see how it compares to the 400 dollar US variant. I emailed them and I will share the response.

the coastal tech solution also allows for more cameras including turn signal synced ones and provides the power source for the camera. Then again, thicker wire(s) to pull through the firewall but you don't have to tinker with connecting the power for the front cam in the engine compartment. On the software side, definitely not elegant having to press 14 times a button...

I definitely expected that caveat when dealing with a simple software mod using the Customtronix piece. I would think that they would have to issue updates to you every time the Uconnect Software is updated. That will definitely test their customer service, but it is something that should can be accomplished.

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

I don't know, that's like once a quarter or so. That's pretty rough for them.

I am just about to get out of one prison (jailbroken iPhone), don't won't to walk into another one (hacked Uconnect).

Can you imagine rolling in to your dealer with a hacked Uconnect for radio/Uconnect issues.

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

With it being software you could simply roll back to factory firmware as well. I would feel very comfortable simply upgrading/downgrading firmware to the system after doing the last two updates for the uconnect myself.
I can see the positives and negatives though...

Trust me I would love for it to be that simple and remain open-minded that it may be. Too cool not to fully vet this out.

Hi,

Currently we do not offer this service/product.

When it will be available we will list the product along with additional information.

I hope the product will be listed in the coming week/s or so.

Sender details:
Greetings, I recently watched the Youtube video on the new Lockpick solution (software) for the Dodge Ram and I would like to know if a similar option exists for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
THE VIDEO


I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the RA4 navigation. I am interested in your mostly-software based Lockpick. I would like to know a couple of things aside from availability.
- How much is the hardware and software (re-programming)?
- How do you re-program ? Via USB ?
- How do you revert to stock (aside from removing the harness)?
- How do you continue to upgrade the UCONNECT software with factory specs ? Or do you provide your own custom upgrades? Or do you revert to factory ...upgrade...and re-enable the Customtronix hack?
- Will the software you provide also disable the navigation screen keyboard lock so I can input navigation address while in motion?
- Do you have the product advertised on your webpage?
- Could you e-mail me a copy of the installation instructions to assess for myself the complexity of the software installation?

I like your elegant solution much better than the Lockpick Coastal Tech product due to the reduced complexity. At this point in time I am only interested in adding a front camera.

Thank you.

We have updated the software more than 6 times already since there where so many bad bugs and stupid miss takes in the software (from HB). The problem is that all units in the software is updated every time, thats why we need our patched software.

But this is just the beginning:-) would you like to have the "SRT" app available in a none SRT car? get the Network provider from you phone instead of the Sprint, be able to set up your own Wifi hotspot? Oboy thereīs so many funny things in the pipe.

Regards
Magnus
