MyGIG RER for 08' Grand Cherokee.
 
I'm thinking about purchasing the RER MyGIG system for my jeep, but i have a few questions. I currently have the stock radio. Is the system plug and play? Will it fit my current stock bezel? Does anyone have a picture it in their own jeep? Is it worth the price? Thanks.

I Upgraded the stock radio in my 09 WK with the LOW SPEED rer mygig nav radio and it was a simple plug n play swap, all you have to do is mount the gps antenna under the instrument cluster pod and hook up the other connectors and your set, before you install it though I suggest you get the uconnect microphone so you can have bluetooth and voice activation features since the rer mygig has uconnect built-in.
Also recommended is the coastaltech lockpick, which gives you the ability to watch movies and enter addresses in the nav while driving and the ability to install aftermarket backup cameras.
Here is some pics of the radio in my jeep, and yes its worth the price for all the features it has, and I love the navigation, i haven't gotten lost since I got it.:thumbsup:

Awesome man, looks great. The only problem is that it's a little out of my price range. Is the RER the only one with navigation? And are aftermarket systems still plug and play or do they require a lot more work?

By the time you buy everything to make an aftermarket nav radio compatible with the steering controls,ipod control, satellite radio, etc.. you might as well have bought the oem RER Nav radio.. it just plug n play with the oem.

Would the RER Nav radio in my 07 Overland? Would it just plug right in and thats all she wrote? I have satellite, uconnect back up camera and the REC now...just wondering cuz I really like the RER. Also how much is the coastaltech lockpick?

you would need the lockpick to upgrade to the mygig, i think its aroung $250 and you would also have to make a bezel or cut yours so it will fit.

i got the bezel and just could not live with the color and texture contrasts between filler bezel and factory bezel. primered them both and painted a flat black same as radio. matches perfectly and really completes the factory look
