Appradio3

I wonder if this would fit into the slot for our 2013? I mean, its a 7 inch screen and the normal head-unit is 6.5. Wonder how tough it would be? Also, if it does, who the hell would spend over a $1k for a stock mopar head-unit when this is half as much and can do 10x.

Re: Appradio3

Being 7" is not an issue. The unit is still double din.

There is slight modification inside the dash that will allow the unit to fit. I believe a small bar needs to be cut and removed. Nothing that can be seen or cause structural issues.

Re: Appradio3

The phone mirror has been available for the iPhone and Android devices as a kit for a while. You either mounted a touch-screen in the dash, or modified your existing touch-radio to accept the aux video-input/touch-output (via USB).

This is a much better solution.
