installed mygig 430N Nav

I just installed the mygig 430N RHB nav radio in my new jeep and it works great right off the bat, i already have the microphone setup in the mirror and everything works perfectly including the Nav, which i was surprised because it seems to work fine without an external antenna. Best thing is it looks stock..

Looks great and it does look stock. Is it a new unit or a pull?

Re: installed mygig 430N Nav

did the dealer have to flash it or anything? and does it also work with your EVIC as to show the turn by turn?

Re: installed mygig 430N Nav

Did you need a code to unlock the anti-theft feature?

Re: installed mygig 430N Nav

it was plug n play with no dealer trip. No this radio doesn't have anti theft feature i believe.. plugged it in and it worked right away.

Re: installed mygig 430N Nav

If you get a 2011 430N (high speed bus), you do not need the security code. The security code was added for the 2012 media centers across the line (130, 430, 730 series) as a theft-prevention measure. So if you get a 2012 unit, make sure you get the code from the seller (usually the last 4 digits of the serial number of the vehicle it came out of). Otherwise, it will be a trip to the dealer and hope they will look it up for you on their scan tool. Many dealers are reluctant to do this, as not having the security code is the 1st indication the unit may be stolen. I had to do this on my son's GM a few years ago, and even with all the proper paperwork I had to go to the dealer's manager and a few phone calls to GM to get the permission to change the code in their scan tool.

This link gives you all the information on the 2011 - 12 GC radios, including installation - swap/upgrade guides.

http://wk2jeeps.com/wk2_navigation.htm

By the way, a few weeks ago on the forums somebody was trying to sell a GC media center that they bought off eBay and the code that was provided from the seller did not work. Buyer beware.
