MyGIG RER in my 2005 WK INSTALLED!!!

Just finished!!! My stock REC unit **** the bed on me and the screen went blank. It took me about 2-2.5 hrs to install it (being careful and trying for a clean install and also a couple of food breaks) but it was worth it. I ordered the following:

1. MyGIG RER Low Speed (PN: P050644001AH) from www.oemautopartsco.com for $850 (even though you can get it $100-$200 cheaper through Ebay or a private seller but I couldn't wait!!!) also the navigation antenna was included.

2. MyGIG Lockpick Adapter V.3 w/media harness from www.solidsignal.com for $179! Every other place wanted the MSRP $289.

3. Mopar Uconnect Microphone (PN: 82211743AB) from www.oemautopartsco.com for $30.

4. REC Bezel filler from oemautopartscoo.com for $35.

The only things I didn't get were the Sirius extension cable for my current factory Sirius setup and the rear view camera but those are DEFINITE future additions to this mod. If you order everything at once from oemautopartsco.com they will give you a much lower bundle price, all you have to do is just ask, I did

Install info:
I routed the Mopar microphone by taking off the gauge cluster bezel (thank you wkjeeps.com!) and snaking the wire over the air vent closest to the driver side window and then over the exposed gauge cluster (SEE PICS BELOW). I then routed the microphone end of the wire by taking off the driver's side a-pillar and tucking it in next to the sunroof drain tube. Then I loosened up the driver's side visor to drop the headliner down just a little bit to tuck in the wire up there along the top of the windshield. The mic also had 2 sided tape on the bottom of it so I just stuck it on the Smartbeam camera located just behind the mirror. The Uconnect mirror has essentially become useless at this point because the MYGIG has those buttons and functions built in to it hence the need for Mopar Uconnect mic for it to work. It is recommended to disconnect the factory Uconnect module located behind the passenger side cowl trim but I didn't. My iPhone 4s connected quickly and works flawlessly with the MyGIG. As a matter of fact everything does!

The MyGIG Lockpick V.3 Adapter comes with very informative instructions and helped the install immensely. It also comes with the AM/FM antenna adapter since the connections on the MyGIG are different than my REC unit. The navigation antenna that was supplied with the MyGIG has a magnet on the bottom of it so I just used the old navigation antenna metal mounting plate, just unscrew the 3 small screws on the old one (SEE PICS BELOW). The only pain in the *** part of the install was trying to fit the unit back in with all of the extra wires needed for the Lockpick Adapter and the adapter itself. Also some MyGIGs come with plastic mounting guide tabs below the top screw mounting holes on the unit. Now you can install it this way since the dash has all of the mounting holes necessary for all radios (SEE PICS BELOW) but you'll have a huge gap up on top of the radio. But if you get the REC bezel filler like I did (which basically splits that empty space in two and fills it) you'll have to cut off those plastic tabs to fit it in since it pushes the unit up to the very top mounting holes. It's a tight fit but I got it to work!

Here are the pics, let me know if you have any questions

Hey Sox, the software installed is 2.403. I think it's the latest one available but I could be wrong. Also forgot to mention in my first post but the steering wheel controls work flawlessly as well

Re: MyGIG RER in my 2005 WK INSTALLED!!!

has anyone discovered if it is possible to continue to use the microphone in the rearview mirror? I know at one point there was a cable that was supposed to make it work, but the consensus was that it wasn't able to plug in... any update on this??

Re: MyGIG RER in my 2005 WK INSTALLED!!!

Well as far as I know there was some needed splicing involved with that but again I could be wrong. Ultimately trust me getting the Mopar Uconnect Mic is a much cheaper option. That other cable is twice as expensive, so I've heard. Besides the buttons on the mirror (I have the same exact mirror) are the same ones on the MyGig RER. So it's all just one unit instead of two like the REC/Mirror combo. I've had absolutely no issues since my install answering calls or making calls with the new Mopar Mic. Look a little further in the above posts and you'll see I didn't unplug my factory 2005 Uconnect module, My new setup works flawlessly

MyGIG RHR in my 2005 WK INSTALLED!!!

I just upgraded to the RHR!!! And it works again FLAWLESSLY!!!! I sold my RER and got a deal on this one, so pretty much broke even. The bluetooth streaming works damn good and the Sirius Travel Link is a pretty cool feature especially with the live weather radar and forecast. I kept the Mygig Lockpick Adapter and mic mentioned above and they work with no problems as well. If anyone has any questions let me know!!!
