Re: Got my RER installed!! One more question...

Thanks Hemisareslow for referring me here. I have same problem that you have. When I click the uconnect button, a menu comes up and I need a mic. I was even able to hook my iPhone 4 with the unit through Bluetooth.

I'm planning to order the standalone mic aswell, so let me know how yours works out once you get it.

Yeah I ordered mine early yesterday, around the time I posted that link. So we'll probably get them about the same time.

It just may work w/o the expensive harness, Jeep changed some of the wiring on the 2009-2010 models and I notice now that one of the expensive harnesses was discontinued. It's still not clear whether or not the original UConnect module has to be disconnected. Guess we'll know soon...

Re: Got my RER installed!! One more question...

Ok, when I swapped out the radio in my '08, I unplugged whatever was plugged into the uconnect/mic port on the back. Then I just plugged in the mic kit and that is all; you don't need any other harness. Perhaps if you want to add the mirror, there are additional steps. However, to use uconnect on the RER just plug the standalone mic kit right into the RER unit. I don't see the need to add the mirror, this cheap option has worked great for a year now.

You sure got a great deal on the radio, hope you enjoy it. I upgraded to the RER Nav radio right after I bought my jeep and I love it, I cant imagine being without it now.
