RER MyGig questions
 
I've got a 2008 Laredo with the REQ w/ Sirius in my WK right now. I'd like to switch to the RER, but have a few questions:

1. Will the REQ to RER swap require dealer programming?
2. Will I need a new center dash trim panel to accomodate the RER?
3. What would I need to do to get uConnect to work? I do not have this option right now.
4. Other than the RER unit and GPS antenna, what would I need to purchase?

And lastly, is it worth going OEM? I'm estimating when all is said and done, I'll be near the $1k mark...

Thanks!

1. no dealer programming
2. no trim panels needed
3. you will need to buy a $20 microphone from ebay to make uconnect work
4. just a microphone.

i bought a 2010 RER on ebay for $600, it has the latest maps and was totally worth it to me. i hate the look of aftermarket radios.

Excellent! I will keep my eyes open for a RER on eBay then. Thanks for the quick answers.

make sure you get a low speed model and check the part numbers with wkjeeps.com to make sure it is a newer model.
