Exclamation Teardown: The Chrysler UConnect Touch Infotainment Platform

I found this 18 min video and accompanying article that discusses some of the components in the UConnect head unit. Fellow geeks should find this interesting, the rest will find it boring. Enjoy! (or not )

Fascinating look at some of the hardware in the unit. Would love to see something similar on how the functions integrate.

That looks far different than my 8.4an

I don't have a great side profile, but my radio is only about 4 inches thick, and has no optical drive.

The guy in that video is an idiot and has no idea what he's talking about.

He holds up this wimpy board and thinks it's a power amp.

I'm pretty sure the guy describing the board identified the amp board correctly. Though, I'm not going to spend another 18 minutes to verify my statement.
