Upgrading from mygig REN to RER

Hey guys...its my first post on jeepgarage and I have to say this forum is amazing!! This will be my 3rd grand cherokee and im loving it still!!

I have a 2008 GC Limited 5.7 It came with the REN MyGig with Sirius and the rear back up camera

Ok here is my issue...

I bought a Low speed RER of ebay as well as the microphone kit and the gps antenna! Now from what I have been reading the microphone connects to the C1 (middle) receptacle but when I removed the REN it already has a harness connected to the C1 port on the back..what is it? and where does it go? Do I leave it out when I connect the new head unit?? As far as I am aware my car doesnt have the uconnect module installed as when I press the button it says "uconnect not available"...

Is this just a provision for the uconnect module or does it have something else connected.

Much appreciated!!

Re: Upgrading from mygig REN to RER

Gavin, I found that if you unplug the other harness and put in the one for the mic that the mic will work without problems. It did for me. I am not sure what the other harness was for in the REN since the UConnect is not installed. Hope this helps..maybe someone else can chime in.
