Rax Jailbreak installed with extra cameras

Just wanted to give a quick review of the rax jailbreak for the SRT. Installed it on my 2014. Software part takes probably about a half an hour give or take depending on how many updates your radio unit goes thru. It's done thru an easy download provided by Rax that you put on usb flash drive and then insert in the vehicle. The cameras themselves are a little time consuming. The front camera took me about an hour and a half to mount/run video and power wires, and the rear cargo camera took about 45 minutes. I'm also very meticulous so if you don't care much about appearance of your install you can probably do it in half the time. Overall very easy project and I would highly recommend the product. Allows not only forced view of cameras but also in motion video and ability to enter address in navigation while moving at any speed and not having to be stopped. Another cool feature is the front camera will automatically show up on the nav screen when the vehicle is taking off up to 7-8mph (then goes back to your previous screen), or decelerating from 8mph to a stop. Hope this helps someone who may be on the fence about purchasing.

Re: Rax Jailbreak installed with extra cameras

Is there a US version? Can't even find the product on the website this whole thing confuses me lol. Is there a software only option? I just would like the video in motion and nav, etc, don't really care about extra cameras.

Here's a direct link but if you go to their site and click on Jeep, dodge, Chrysler and the under dash box that says jailbreak...
It's made for US models just doesn't support the SRT pages in North America (doesn't affect you if you have an SRT..just means if you have a regular Cherokee, Ram, Chrysler etc you could get SRT pages on your screen but not in North America). The bronze model with give you nav jailbreak thru just software. You won't be able to get video in motion unless you go with the silver kit because you actually get a factory extension harness with audio and video leads for your video source but that kit also comes with a camera (you won't need to mount it if you don't want). Hope that helps.

Re: Rax Jailbreak installed with extra cameras

Thank you! Is it difficult to remove the head unit to install the cable or its a pretty simple job?

Very easy install. Takes about 10 mins. A few clips holding the bezel on around the radio. Then four bolts holding the radio in. Just unclip the factory harness and plug the extension into the radio then your factory harness into that. It has two video inputs. I recommend using the front camera because the software is configured to activate it at certain mph as described in the first post...but you don't have to activate it when you install the jailbreak. Then second input can be your video source for whatever you want to plug into it.
