RA2 (5" screen version) vs RA3/RA4 ??

Other than the screen size, what are the actual differences?


Is it possible to add a rear view camera to the 5" screen version
using aftermarket cams? (perhaps via the use of a lockpick...)

Thanks!

Thank you for the link. It's very informative, but still no mention of the backup cam

FYI: I called one of the companies that sells a lockpick device for 2014, and they told
me that the 5" standard version will NOT work with cameras.

That is interesting: no nav for Laredo (may be a $600 dealer install). Seems to be a lot you cannot get on a Laredo, have to upgrade to an "E" just to get a trailer hitch.

It's structured in a funny way... the "e" package priced at
1700 MSRP includes things that I would opt out of:
•BRIGHT SIDE ROOF RAILS (MW1)
•POWER 4-WAY DRIVER LUMBAR ADJUST (JPU)
•POWER 8-WAY DRVR/MANUAL PASS SEAT (JPR)
•SIRIUSXM SATELLITE RADIO (RSD)

The 5" radio will work with the rear view camera, apparently just not lockpick. The standard limited has the 5" with the camera.
