Navigation system upgrade help!

New to the forums, this is my first thread.

I've got a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2013 - Laredo w/ stock audio system (incl. Uconnect and Sirius radio)

I am wanting to install a navigation system with radio,gps, bluetooth etc. What do I need to know before buying a navigation system from amazon/ebay etc? Would any system work? and has anyone tried installing one before?

Thanks in advance for the help!

I had the uconnect 5.0 in my 2014 Cherokee and bought the 8.4an from oemautoparts.com. They are located in Orlando, FL. They have the 8.4an for the Grand Cherokee as well.


Installation took about 15 minutes. I did have to take it to the dealer for them to
flash the Cherokee info into the radio. Cost 99.00 to have this done.


The only problem is that you will have to take to dealer for updates as the vin code on your gc won't show the 8.4an setup.


Hope this helps.

Thanks, that helps! Also, how would I know if my truck has a low/high speed can bus system? (If I order one from eBay, example this one)

He would want to make sure that a newer radio would work with his 2013 jeep compared to your 2014 jeep.
