Re: rec swap

A REC will be a drop in fit but you will have to buy a REC bezel from Jeep or Ebay. But....why get a REC when a RER is about the same price off Ebay. You'll still need to buy a GPS antenna as you would for the REC. The only additional parts to buy would be the Lock Pick adapter and the bezel insert both on Ebay. The RER is a much better HU than the REC and worth the extra $'s.

The rec sucks! It is not touchscreen and you will hate it very soon after getting it. The mygig has a 30gb hard drive so it doesnt matter how many discs it can hold because it can hold your whole music collection. I sold my rec and bought a mygig....... Trust me it is worth it!!

Re: rec swap

here's a dumb question - which "mygig" model should I get for a 2006? I see a few different models on ebay and I'm not sure which to get. Can I just upgrade the software on an older one for the same functionality?

Re: rec swap

only low speed will work, RER for navigation or REN for non-navigation.
