is RB1 navigation plug and play?
I love having in-dash navigation but I like keeping the clean factory look. I have a 2002 Laredo with all options. heated leather, moon roof, etc. it has the factory 10-disc in the rear as well as the single CD/AM/FM/cassette head-unit up front. I want to know if the RB1 navigation (this: is a direct plug and play fitment because I'm on the lookout for a used or cheaper one. thanks!

yes it will just plug in and go. but there a smal chance you have a really early 02. ewaly 99-01 and some 02's have 2 7 pin port and teh RB1 has the 1 22pin port. remove your radio and see which connection it has back there. if its 1 22 pin port your good to go.

just make sure if buying used (which ebay has a deal now and then if you look) that everything works and that you get an antenna and disk. if there beating around the bush and dont answer yes or give a warranty dont bother getting it since odds are it will not work right.

i added one to my 02 limited and love it since i dose nto sticks out .i have the latest version AI with the inmotion and nag scree hack and its good.

only down side to the RB1 is no touch screen and need to get the new disk when the update is out, which can run $200 but theirs ways around that if you know were to look.

this is what it looks like in my jeep Attachment 3884

okay, thanks. I will check that.

one more question. do I need a different bezel or will the one for my factory unit fit the RB1?

I believe the factory bezel will be fine.

I used the wjjeeps links to install a RB-1,10 disc changer, and steering controls in my 99 WJ. Works perfectly.

yours will be a direct plug n play, 99-01 model years need to buy a stupid expensive (100) harness to make it work, i had to buy mine from a dodge dealer cause jeep didnt have them stocked. the same bezel you have now will work perfect too
