Does anyone have the Mopar Part # for the iPod direct integration kit? The one that allows control from the head unit while charging the iPod.

Also, will any SAT antenna work with the RB1 for navigation purposes only? I know the Sirius antenna is different, I'm simply looking for a standard SAT antenna that will allow the RB1 to navigate. Is there any one brand that is more reliable than others? There seems to be a lot of Chinese crap on eBay. I'll pay a little more for a quality part that will not break in the first year of use.
The ipod adapter is P/N 82209616AC. It is obsolete, but a number of dealers have one on the shelf.

As far as the antenna goes, the OEM one was probably made in china anyway, so I wouldn't get too worried about it. All you need is one with the same Alpine style connector and it should work.

Okay I am very interested in this RB1 kit and want to Clear something's up
what you need to install RB1 into a wrangler and be able to play/charge your iPod and make it accessible through the head unit is-
RB1 Radio (part number ending in AH or AL)
bracket
iPod kit
SAT antenna

is that it or am I missing a adapter or harness?

Nope, that's it. Except it's AH or AI level. I believe AI was the last revision level to the radio before it was discontinued.

I sold my '06 and got a '99 Wrangler. I still want to install a RB1 in it. Here is what I have so far to make the conversion work:

RB1 - AI model (latest nav disk w/ in motion)
Sat Antenna
Mopar iPod Integration Kit
Mopar Radio Conversion Harness/Kit
Mopar RB1 Wrangler install bracket
Jeep TJ lower dash bezel (4-switch)

What I'm looking for the complete the install:

Jeep TJ '03-'06 center dash bezel
(The square shaped radio opening on '97-'02 dash bezels will not fit the round faceplate of the RB1)

I'll post a write up and link it here when I'm done.

Since this is the best RB1 thread, figured I post here.

Anyone used a Bluetooth rear view mirror into the RB1's aux input?

Or think this might work?

Wow, that's expensive!


Does the RB1 have an actual auxiliary input built in, or is that something you're planning on adding with some type of integration adapter (through the 10 pin CD changer port)? I didn't see any pictures (just a quick google search before my post) showing any AUX input, but I did see the word (AUX) on the radio face.

It looks like the Bluetooth built in to the mirror can pass through Bluetooth to a radio with Bluetooth. Does the RB1 offer Bluetooth integration? The only info I know about the RB1 is that it is a AM/FM/CD Nav. (proprietary DVD based) radio.

Mine has a AUX input as I run the Mopar iPod Integration Kit. As far as I know, the RB1 does not have a stand AUX input on the back. I would have to pull my radio and double check to confirm.

No need to pull the radio, Google images show there isn't one.

I've seen quite a few with very well executed AUX jacks installed. There are a couple of guys on eBay that do it as a service.

This is the best I have found for adding Bluetooth and charging all in one.


But GROM doesn't support the RB1 radio

Does an Audi adapter work on Jeeps?
