Any thoughts on this? I don't care about watching DVD's while driving but using the nav would be handy. I would hate to have a problem and be stuck buying a new $1500 radio b/c of a warranty issue.

If you brick it because of the lockpick, simply take it off before you bring it in and play dumb. That's what I would do. LOL

Wasn't sure if there was a way to tell it was on there, if it changes anything in the programming.

I hate that the passenger can't program the navigation while moving in some cars. If the Jeep is like that, I want to learn about this lockpick. Please tell us more!

No reprogramming. Just take it out and you are good to go. And I have had it installed with my 730 for a few weeks now it is worth it.

Agreed, and a "pick" could be easily programmed using the same sensor that triggers the seat belt warning. I understand the liabilities involved with allowing the driver to use the device, but a passenger should be allowed to work their magic!

So you're using a V.# on what year WK/WK2? I heard the V.3 will crash the unit and leave a black screen and you have to unplug and such to get things back running again.

There are 4 switches that have to be set based on your system. Easy to follow instructions ate included. If you screw it up it may give a black screen just unplug so it can reset and do it right. It doesn't cause spontaneous nav combustion.

LMFAO ok so I'll look for the V.3 then. I was going to get the V2 because of it but I'll take your word.... :thumbsup:

I had a lock pic in my 07 Escalade and I thought it was to much of a pain to use. Honestly once I git use to the nav and the limits as to when you can program I was fine without the lock pic. But then I liked the voice command with the nav unit in the caddy so i very seldom had to stop and enter directions.

I don't know about the Escalade version, but in the WK the Lockpick is totally transparent, no user intervention required. Early version Lockpicks required you to quickly turn the power button on/off to engage the lockout feature.

Exactly, if that has changed it might be a whole lot better. It was hard enough for me to figure out let alone show my very impatient wife what to do

Does anyone have the lockpick working with the 430n yet .
I just installed it onto my 430n in a 2008 jeep jk. all is unlocked and functioning except for the nav. I still cannot enter addresses while moving. I plan to contact coastaltech on monday. They told me when i bought that it would work on the new RHB.

Try pressing the power button twice while on that screen and moving. It unlocks it for me.
