Re: MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.

i'm in the same boat as the OP... I have an 08 with the stock radio w/ AUX port...

if i wanted to upgrade to RER.. wouldnt I need a lot more than just the radio unit??... I have stock bluetooth button on my radio but it isnt enabled...

in order to get it all to work..radio, nav, bluetooth... what else would I need other than the RER radio unit and how much would this be running me in total?

Also recommended is the coastaltech lockpick, which gives you the ability to watch movies and enter addresses in the nav while driving and the ability to install aftermarket backup cameras.
Here is some pics of the radio in my jeep, and yes its worth the price for all the features it has, and I love the navigation, i haven't gotten lost since I got it.
sorry if this is a dumb question... but what is that under your screen?
and if you didnt want satellite radio or to watch movies WHILE you drive.. could you just buy the RER and mic? for touch screen, radio, nav, and bluetooth?

Smile Re: MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.

That rer bezel is pretty expensive looks like it should be a lot cheaper. I make work on making one.

Sox I got a mygig rer 09 model with a lockpick v3 in my 2005 WK what is up with the version 5 lockpick will it work In my jeep?


Later Guys

Re: MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.

is a bezel required for an 08?
I havent seen any and from earlier posts in this thread it appears to just fit right in.

correct?

thanks. thats what i figured.. I dont care to use my satellite..(i dont need a subscription).. but i would like the gps built in and the use of bluetooth with my iphone to enable handsfree talking.. the touch screen radio and DVD is nice as well...

pretty sure I would only need this:
RER unit.. (will come with gps antenna)
mic to use for bluetooth

and then here comes the decisions....
lockpick to type in addresses in motion and play DVDs in motion... i can get it programmed with lockpick for $100... is it worth it though??
maybe the hundred bucks is better spent on ipod integration.. what do you guys who have MyGIG use more of?..lockpick functions or ipod integration?

looks like I can get it here: USA/CAN- LOW SPEED RER (iPOD ENABLED) [RER 4737] - $899.95 : OEM Auto Parts with ipod integration.. cable for it.. and bluetooth mic for $1050.
or the lower model without ipod inegration but with lockpick programmed and mic in for $1000
or just spend $900 and have no lockpick and no ipod integration... too many choices...

what gets used most for you guys? and do these seem like a good deal? anyone buy from them before?

Re: MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.

I have the Mygig with Lockpick V4. The ipod integration...that's just the mopar cable from the unit to the Ipod? i had that and imo quite useless.

i say go for the lockpic. btw what version of the lockpic does it come with?
plus with the lockpick they provide you with the ipod cable which allows you to control it with the steering wheels controls.
the GPS is def a must, address in motion(nice feature but have any1 really used it while in motion without a co-pilot? lol), i love the DVD in motion-i have little cousins and to shut em up in trips i play em a movie lol.
the lockpic also allows installation of cameras if you dont already have 1. The V4 allows up to 4 cams, i have a rear and front.

thanks for the input Davy! Appreciate it... the only people ever in my WK is usually just me or just me and the gf. maybe a friend everyonce in a while.. for this reason, I'm thinking lockpick may not be necessary.. unless the girlfriend wants to watch a movie during trips... she does tend to get restless on long drives.. lol but I dont see it as a neccessity..more of a cool if i COULD use it everyonce in a while type of thing.. i dont have steering wheel controls.. other than the ones that allow me to scroll through my EVIC menu.. is that the controls people speak of when using steering wheel controls with myGIG? if not, then I dont have them and that would be the reason ipod integration could be cool.. just so i can leave it in the glovebox and control from touch screen.

to answer your 2 questions.. this is what the lockpick programming consists off..MYGIG LOCKPICK PROGRAMMING [MYG PROG] - $99.99 : OEM Auto Parts i would assume its just the latest version programmed in??

also this is the cable that you need to purchase for the ipod integration...NAV iPOD INTEGRATION CABLE [RER 853] - $96.05 : OEM Auto Parts

Re: MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.

kk i get it. I thought the lockpick mention was actually with the lockpick unit but its just the programming. Either way i think the DVD in motion is a nice feature to have. The address in motion- i think since 2 years i have owned it, i have used it once?( gf punched in addy while i drove)

The steering wheels controls are behind the wheel. I'm certain that it's standard on all 08+ models?

I have that integration cable, somewhere....Imo that's not worth the $100. Ill shoot for the lockpick programming instead. But if you do want the cable, I dont use mine and ill let it go for sooooo much cheaper. (just let me know, need to find it first )

thanks! I'm gonna save up..and look to do it in the future when I have some disposable jeep modding money.. (the gf hates when $ is going into the WK) lol I've only put money into my lift tires and cosmetic mods..so this seems like a worthwhile one if the $ is right. I've never done modding like this, so hopefully I'm not charged out the ass for install.. I know it will need to be starscanned to work.. hopefully I get some dollars for the birthday and then christmas coming up in the near future.
If I decide to take the $1,000 plunge.. I'll PM you about the cable. thanks again.
