Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

Matty you know NavTV were my preferred solution provider, but their ongoing bullshit about an ETA... while typical for everything to do with this brand vehicle... is too much. If someone can't be honest about a release date, how far can you trust them overall?

I had my girlfriend read me a German forum Sox is a member of. A guy there has a Lockpick CHR558 running on a Dodge with "the same" U-Connect as us MY14 guys. That's as good as I've got so far. I'm still researching, but maybe I'll have to be the guinea pig.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

Any luck with getting the Lockpick fitted or do I need to be the guinea pig?

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

No... you need to be the TEST PILOT.

Doesn't that make you feel more like doing it?

Cheers,
Steve

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

Hmmm... that's a concept. Lemme have a moment with the think music.

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

I bought the Lockpick from the US a couple of months ago. Finally had it fitted last week. I use it for "Nav in Motion" and for switching my caravan camera to the uConnect screen when towing. The guy who fitted it said it was dead easy. The trim and radio unit come out in about five minutes. There was some coding required by my Jeep dealer, but the installer organised that.

Generally it works very well, although There's a few little things you need to consider before you have one fitted.
1. As per the fitment instructions, even though you can select the factory camera manually at any time unless you run a separate power line it will cutout at around 8kmh.
2. Because the Lockpick takes over your camera functions you will loose the delayed off when moving forward. i.e as soon as you change out of reverse (when in auto mode) you'll loose your camera display.
3. The Nav while driving works great. A couple of times though, when I've needed to reverse during a Nav route, after coming back from a camera display to the map the system appears to "hang". A switch to Radio or Media and back fixes this.

Hope this info helps. I'll keep testing and post my findings.

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

Thanks Dazpad. Do you reckon you could find out about the coding required? I've never heard of such a requirement when reading about Lockpick, but it could be an Export/AU or MY14 thing I guess?

I can't imagine my dealership doing anything to incorporate the mod... not that I've asked.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

From what the installer told me, part of the system needs to think its in a left hand drive vehicle. I can send him an email and try and get some details.

Re: CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC

Funny thing is that my Nav has always been able to be changed while driving. I can plot a destination and do anything that I can do while stopped. Perhaps some wiring was configured diffently in my car?

Yes I agree from what I am reading in these Forums their IT veracity on all sorts of levels, DPF/NAV etc has gone backwards since the first models - it's usually the other way around!
