Options for upgrade

Does anyone have pics of an aftermarket head unit in 2011-2013 GC? I have seen that alpine has a kit for the wrangler that retains uconnect functionality but can't find anything for GC. I don't think the factory system is particularly bad but there is plenty of room for improvement, plus I would like to add Apple car play.

Crutchfield offers a bunch of units that will nicely retrofit into the MY11-13 JGC as well as a complete connectivity kit that allows you to retain things like steering wheel controls if you have them, etc.

Re: Options for upgrade

Greetings,

Here is a picture of an aftermarket head unit I am using in MY11. It is the Pioneer AppRadio 3. As soon as other navi apps become available for CarPlay, I will switch over.

I am using a PAC harness, but, you can get units that uses the iDatalink harness. As Jim said, check out Crutchfield.



Best for now.

Greetings,

This is an old picture from the AppRadio 3. You do have limited wallpaper options to select from. I did change the wallpaper using a photo from my iPhone. This unit is from the 2013 model year. The new Pioneer NEX units has better wallpaper options. Then again, all the new units have better interfaces across the manufacturing board.

Best for now.
