Anyone retorfit MyGIG RER with VES?
 
I am thinking of adding the Mygig RER and I need to know will I still be able to use the 06-07 VES entertainment units. Is there anything I need to buy to make this work? Has anyone done this and still kept the rear VES? The rear VES is very important to me..as my little one loves watching movies etc.

since you need this adapter.....http://www.coastaletech.com/MYGIG_ADAPTER.htm
it comes with the lockpic which also can control the VES.

yeah...I saw that but I wanted to get some opinions on the lockpick with the VES and the ease of installation etc.

not to hijack the thread but does anyone know where to get the REC lockpick for any cheaper than the list price? they seem even more on ebay.

Scott, I would think if the connector on the back of the radio is the same is should would. Don't quote me on that but that would be my guess. I can't imagine they would really need to change the mechanics from one year to the next but you never know.

SvenskaJeepGuy, cheapest place I've seen the lockpick is at Solid Signal. Check their website, they advertise the latest version, version 3 with usb upgradeability, and AV harness for $199. They seem reputable but I have never ordered from them. Interested in the lockpick myself but have not pulled the trigger on it yet.

I believe you have to get a low-speed BUS RER as well to work in the 05-07's? I think they changed to the high-speed BUS in 08+. I don't even know if that matters though and I could very well be talking out of my ass right now.

I will say though, the RER mygig is AWESOME.

this is from Mark Elliot (aka mr.cd1)



First, to install any RER navigation unit in your vehicle, you would need this MyGig ADAPTER;

Then, you would want this 2009 model RER unit;

You would want this Sirius antenna;

Then, if you wanted to use the Uconnect/Voice command features of the RER, all you would need is this mic kit;

You would then have a LOT of features to use!
