CHR-558 Lockpick on MY14 Export JGC
 
Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has fitted the CHR-558 V2 Lockpick to an export MY14 yet? Just looking to confirm it all works OK with the non USA U-Connect variant prior to ordering.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks Sox... much appreciated. I've been waiting on NavTV but it's a never ending stream of delays. I found a supplier who'll ship Lockpick to Australia, so it might be time to change teams...

Good to know it's compatible with the MY14.

Cheers,
Steve

That looks good Steve, would like a front camera and to be able to turn on the rear camera at anytime.

Yep, all good additions. I'd like to fit "towing cameras" in place of mirrors and guesswork, and play around with stuff like conncting my phone / tablet / whatever to the U-Connect screen. However the real motivation is to enter destinations into the navigation while moving. We're used to this with our other car, were assured voice recognition would be a valid alternative prior to purchase, and have hated being so mislead since collecting the car.

If buying another vehicle prior to availability I will voice record every discussion about equipment and features. It seems OK to make shit up or mislead those downstream when you're in the auto import and sales industry.

Cheers,
Steve

Yep I hear ya, would like very much to have VR for destinations as well, was hoping for an update to fix that some day. My biggest beef is no tow hooks. I didn't know they didn't have them. Never owned a GC before and didn't notice. And all the pics & vids on the net are mostly from the US which have them. Just thought 75K for a 4x4 they would have that shit already.

Lack of proper recovery points "out of the box" isn't so unusual. My 90 Series only had one cast hook each end when I bought it... later Prados and Cruisers had nothing serious up front, as per much of the market really. The difference is lack of availability... and the misleading promotional material which I'm surprised hasn't seen Jeep Australia in court with their wallets open.

Who remembers the GU Patrol fuel tank capacity settlement???

All I know is I still have an 80 Series and 100 Series which both have recovery hooks, not that I ever had to use them. The thing is though, I told the sales manager I was going to use it up the beach as I asked if the 20" wheels were ok for the beach, which he said no prob, have heaps running up the beach with them. Not one mention of no recovery hooks. Don't think there was a solution at that stage. So just say nothing.

The Toyota factory gear are not the real McCoy. I the round wire straightens, fatigues and breaks. I snapped these pix just doing the rounds in a mine site car park...

A recovery point is generally cast steel, extruded steel, or forged steel... bolted, not welded. Formed is generally bad.

Hi Steve,

I just stumbled upon LockPick CHR558 V2 today trying to solve a similar towing issue. I would be interested to see the outcome and your thoughts on the experience. Thanks for the tip on Camera-Source.

I am also looking to pair it with some form of video recorder (eg http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Vedio-GPS-blackbox-DVR) for road-rage evidence gathering. Some people don't seem to appreciate towing horses means you need to take corners slowly, and they vent their frustration in sometimes dangerous ways.


Regards,

Damien

If I was mounting horse float cams I'd be heading to Welcome to Sharpvision Co.,Ltd - China Car Camera manufacturer,backup camera supplier,rear view system, car monitor wholesale, Vehicle & backup car camera system, CCTV Security Camera Systems factory,car camera exporter. to look at their ball cameras. I used them in commercial fitments and they're good value. They'd be ideal for the sides of the horse float. SharpVision also make 12 volt 4 channel DVRs... however Sanan had a greater range last time I compared them.

I'm still hesitant to order the CHR558, mainly because of this message from Coastal.

"Thank you for your interest, however we do not process international orders, ship internationally, or take international credit cards/Credit cards without a USA billing address.*

Furthermore, we do not test any of our devices on non North American Vehicles.* Nor do we guarantee compatibility with a Non North American vehicle.

Again thank you for your interest and have a great day.

On the other hand, Camera-source.com have been great and I'm awaiting their response to my concerns.

David Scott (user on AJOR) tried a CoastalTech CHR lockpick on his MY11 RB2 unit in his Laredo without any success. he ended up sending it back and purchasing the NavTV unit and using that successfully.
