REC radio in a 2005 wk
 
i was wondering if its poss to put a REC nav radio into the 2005 GC? i bought the new bezel and i did buy a radio off ebay but when i hooked it up the screen didnt come on and it only played like am and the buttons didnt do anything? Do i need a diff wire hook up? i have the big single plug but i noticed the REC had 2 diff plugins!! i also read that certain rec radio's with certain part numbers only work

can anyone help?????

You should have a 22 pin connector and a 10 pin connector on the back of the radio, as well as the GPS antenna plug and the Terrestrial radio plug. If it is an '07, it may also have a 4 pin connector on the back, which is for the Jeep back-up camera hook-up.

The 22 pin connector is for your audio signal wires, power, UConnect, etc.

The 10 pin connector is for the Sat and rear DVD.

If it has a 3 pin connector, in place of the 4 pin, this is for factory software access, only.

Either way, '05-'07 should plug and play.

Hope this helps,
Bob

Any of these radios will fit your rig:

maybe if you DO NOPT HAVE THE BA system? not sure.

but can say that if you DO NOT HAVE THE AMP of the BA system your REC voice will not work/

i am going with rob on this one. you must have the basic system, in which you can not add a REC because the nav prompts will sound terrible. do you have a sirius antenna on your roof?
