430N Navigation question
Alright, new to this forum and I'm sure that this topic has been covered ad nauseum but I have just one simple question. I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the standard 130 radio. I have Sirius and the connectivity package with the USB port in the center console and bluetooth. I am looking to upgrade to the 430 RBZ or the 430N RHB model. I've done my research and know that I need to get a radio with the high speed bus and mounting screws will be on the top and bottom. I know that the RBZ is pretty easy, plug and play and all the voice commands, steering wheel controls and bluetooth will not be affected. My question is about the 430N RHB model. I read somewhere that as long as you have Sirius satellite the 430N RHB unit uses the same antennae as Sirius and a new antennae is not needed and I can install the RHB and be on my merry way using the navigation on the 430 RHB model. I don't want to spend the extra money on the RHB unit if I have to upgrade the antennae. Is anybody able to confirm this?
My Reality Check Bounced
Dunno about the antenna, but you may want to make sure you get the security code for the new radio. I think 2012s are picky about it.

I can confirm, I had the 130 w/ sirius and the package with the usb in the center console. Got a 430n out of a 2011 and sirius and nav worked great, I think I read somewhere they use the same antenna? Like coldcase said, there are years that need a security code, and of course be aware of the mounting screw locations. Other than that it's a 15 minute job. Then look for some of the threads to get the nav updated to some new maps!
Excellent! Thanks for all the info. I always keep the security codes in mind. I always check with any of the sellers on Ebay to make sure they can provide the code. No code. No sale. Figured if I keep my eyes open I may be able to get a good deal on one with nav.
Anyone know if a MyGig RHB from a 2013 Dodge Durango would fit in a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Also, has anyone ever had to work with the dealer to get the theft codes? I found a nav unit on Ebay from a 2013 Dodge Durango that has a manufacture date of 2012 and the mounting posts are on the top and bottom. Model number P05091344AD. It has all the connections but I'm not sure of the bus speed. Also, if it's a pain to get the codes from the dealer then this thing is no better than installing a brick into my car. The seller has the VIN# of the vehicle it came out of but not the four digit code.
One last question and I think I have this radio thing figured out. Confirmed a model number of a used 430N RHB unit from a 2011 Grand Cherokee. 2011 build date and no antitheft moniker on the front so I don't believe I have to worry about a code. Will that radio fit and work in a 2012 Grand Cherokee? Just wanting to make sure I have everything covered so I don't have to return the unit if I purchase it.
