Anyone retorfit MyGIG RER with VES?

I am thinking of adding the Mygig RER and I need to know will I still be able to use the 06-07 VES entertainment units. Is there anything I need to buy to make this work? Has anyone done this and still kept the rear VES? The rear VES is very important to me..as my little one loves watching movies etc.

Re: Anyone retorfit MyGIG RER with VES?

Scott, I would think if the connector on the back of the radio is the same is should would. Don't quote me on that but that would be my guess. I can't imagine they would really need to change the mechanics from one year to the next but you never know.

SvenskaJeepGuy, cheapest place I've seen the lockpick is at Solid Signal. Check their website, they advertise the latest version, version 3 with usb upgradeability, and AV harness for $199. They seem reputable but I have never ordered from them. Interested in the lockpick myself but have not pulled the trigger on it yet.

Re: Anyone retorfit MyGIG RER with VES?

I believe you have to get a low-speed BUS RER as well to work in the 05-07's? I think they changed to the high-speed BUS in 08+. I don't even know if that matters though and I could very well be talking out of my ass right now.

I will say though, the RER mygig is AWESOME.

Re: Anyone retorfit MyGIG RER with VES?

this is from Mark Elliot (aka mr.cd1)



First, to install any RER navigation unit in your vehicle, you would need this MyGig ADAPTER;

http://cgi.ebay.com/TVandNav2Go-Chry-Dodge-Jeep-MyGig-Lockpick-Adapter_W0QQitemZ330388644280QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH _DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4cecb2a1b8

Then, you would want this 2009 model RER unit;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-RER-MyGig-GPS-NAVIGATION-DVD-CD-MP3_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem2c52e3307cQQitemZ19 0369181820QQptZCarQ5fAudioQ5fVideo

You would want this Sirius antenna;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/RER-MyGig-REQ-RES-REN-Sirius-Satellite-Radio-Antenna_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem2c4eeb3c07QQite mZ190302600199QQptZCarQ5fAudioQ5fVideo

Then, if you wanted to use the Uconnect/Voice command features of the RER, all you would need is this mic kit;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/82211743-RER-REW-REP-MyGig-UConnect-Microphone-Kit_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem2c514202d5QQitemZ19 0341841621QQptZCarQ5fAudioQ5fVideo

You would then have a LOT of features to use!
