REC Lockpick Question

I have an 05 GC with a REC w RES. I want to be able to play DVDs on the headunit. I was woundering if all I needed is the Coastal Etech Lockpick? Will this let me have the DVD on the headunit? Can I hook up my Ipod to it also.

Re: REC Lockpick Question

Most hacks require the video input for the backup camera to allow you to play DVDs on the head unit...I believe this is limited to very late 2006 and 2007+ models.

You may want to double check whichever way you go is compatible with the 2005 REC sytem.

Re: REC Lockpick Question

^ he is right, i didnt see than you have an 05. you have to have the video input or you can send your unit to tvnav2go and they can mod it for you.

Re: REC Lockpick Question

if it is an 05 you do not have it. the video input is in late 06 and 07 models.

Re: REC Lockpick Question

You could upgrade and install a RER radio and install it with a Lockpick to play Dvds. I did this in my 05 and it works great.

Re: REC Lockpick Question

The one I have installed in my Jeep is a 2008 RER Mygig. It came out of another Jeep, bought it on Ebay. You could however use the same radio out of any Chrysler vehicle. It just needs to be a RER model Low Speed Bus unit. These models from 2008 will work:300 (AH) Aspen (AE)
Avenger (AH) Charger (AH) Challenger (AF)Commander (AH)Dakota (AB)
Durango (AE)Grand Cherokee (AG) Magnum (AH)Raider (AH)Sebring (AH). The letters you see after the model will be listed after the seriel number on that radio telling you what it came out of. The RER models include Navigation and are set up for Sirius radio that you must suscribe to in order to get it. You will need a LockPick Adapter also that allows you plug directly into you current system and play DVD,s anytime. You will also need a antenna for the Navigation and one for the Sat radio. Also a new bezel will be needed unless you already have a REC unit now. Alot of this info can be found at wkjeeps.com. If you need any help locating some of this stuff or questions let me know, I would be glad to help as that is how I learned also.

Tony
