Rec navigation
 
Someone near my area is selling a REC navigation from his dodge ram.
he doesnt have the gps antenna, is it worth 575$???

and does the REC have an aux jack?

Why doesn't he have the Antenna? Stolen? He probably got it from a Junk Yard and is making a nice profit.

The REC does not have an aux jack. If it is in really good shape, and it is a newer model (with the back-up camera input), I don't think $575 is too out of line. Which nav disc does it come with?

Get the part number from him and look it up on this list:

Don't get it unless it is a 2007 model, most of the 2005-2006 production units had issues with the joystick breaking. While the joystick can be replaced it's a hassle you don't want to mess with.

$575 is probably not the best deal you can find on an REC, especially since you will have to spend ~$30-$65 for an antenna. The price of a disc will vary depending if you get a copy or a legit factory disc.

Is he offering any sort of guarantee, to at least insure that it does not have any initial issues? Any scratches on the unit or screen?

I agree you might be able to find a better deal on ebay.

Also check out LXforums - a lot of people sell them there... it's where I got mine.

The 2008 Ram 1500 came with the REC, it did not get the new MyGIG radios until the 2009 model year. The Heavy Duty Ram's (2500/3500) did not get the new radios until 2010 model year.
