Not seen that but I'm not aware of one that actually works! I've tried iPod and iPhone 4S on mine, apparently they're supposed to work

Where is the plug in the glovebox? What trims does it come with? I have a laredo x with the boston acoustic 6 disc.

From the 2008 WK Owner Manual:

UNIVERSAL CONSUMER INTERFACE (UCI) — IF
EQUIPPED
NOTE: This section is for sales code RES and REQ
radios only with UConnect.™ For sales code REN touch
screen radio, refer to the separate User’s Manual.
This feature allows you to plug in an iPod into the
vehicle’s sound system through a connector (UCI connector)
using an optional connection cable (available
through Mopar). See your authorized dealer for details.
Using this feature,
  • the iPod audio can be played on the vehicle’s sound
    system, providing metadata (Track Title, Artist, Album,
    etc.) information display on radio.
  • the iPod can be controlled using the radio buttons to
    Play, Browse and List the iPod contents.
  • the iPod battery charges when plugged into the UCI
    connector.
Connecting the iPod
Use the optional connection cable to connect an iPod to
the vehicle’s UCI connector (which is located in the glove
box on some vehicles. This location may vary with
vehicle). Once the iPod is connected and synchronized
to the vehicle system (this may take a few seconds to
connect), the vehicle brand logo appears on the iPod
display, and it starts charging and is ready for use by
pressing radio switches as described below.
Controlling the iPod using Radio Buttons
To get into the UCI (iPod) mode and access a connected
iPodt, press the “AUX” button on the radio faceplate.
Once in the UCI (iPod) mode, the iPod audio track (if
available from iPod) will start playing over the vehicle
audio system.

Ya that is strange, my ipod charges when it is plugged into that. The only problem I have with mine is that it loses communication with the ipod, then i have to unplug it and plug it back in, its pretty annoying.

Do you have a plug in the glove box? It should be a black square thing. If you have that you can buy the portion that plugs into that and has the ipod connector on it. It took me a bit to find the right one.

If you don't have the plug in the glove box you might not be able to do it, although I am told there is a two piece cable, one that plugs into the back of radio and goes to the glove box and then the second that is the ipod plug.

It would be right there in the glove box and have an open end. I am guessing you don't have it.

My dealer parts guy was really helpful when I went in inquiring about it.

Also has the PN of cable

FYI, owners manuals are free at jeep.com

(RER system) I don't have any issues. I have figured out how to hook up the iPhone to the system and have Pandora operate. It was by accident but works.

Hello,
I have a 2008.5 WK CRD with REQ radio that has this plug (UNIVERSAL CONSUMER INTERFACE / UCI) but I have zero experience with Apple gadgets.

What would you guys recommend I do to listen to MP3s?
  1. Burn CDs of MP3s? This works, I found an old MP3 CD but the manual talks about a 255 file limit. Is that for the entire CD or each directory?
  2. Burn DVDs of MP3s, have not tried this yet. Concerned about file limit.
  3. Buy a used IPOD, will it work with newer IPODs and lightning adapter?
  4. Buy a used IPHONE, again, I could buy an old one or a newer one with lightning connector depending if that works.
I think the REQ radio is pretty good and seems to have had a lot of R&D put into it so I'd like to stick with it. I would be hesitant to yank it out and stick in something else due to integration issues. I really wish it had a USB connector...



Thanks, Steve

I found a 32 gig iPHONE 4 for $40 so I picked it up since it uses the big locking data connector. Low and behold, it doesn't charge via the UCI cable as others have noted above. The phone even gives me an error saying it probably doesn't support the UCI but it does work. This whole iPHONE thing is a major PITA. I am not an iTUNES person so I found a program called CopyTrans Manager to move the files over to the iPHONE because you can't just drag files onto it like a normal USB drive.

I was hoping to just put the music on the phone and banish it to the glove compartment but I guess I'll have to drag it out a couple times a week to charge it unless there is another solution I am not aware of.

iPhones are generally a pain in the butt to work with, just like any Apple product. It's fine if you only want to do the few things they let you do, but as soon as you want to step outside their little box at all you're screwed. As for it not charging, I'd check the pinout of the big Apple connector and see if the power pin is getting 5V or not. If it is, then it's typical Apple nonsense preventing the charging, if it isn't then either there's a break in the cable or it isn't being supplied properly. You could probably splice in the power yourself in that case if you wanted to.

255 files is a lot, unless they're quite short or very low quality I doubt you'll fit that many songs onto a disc. The most I've ever had on one was 110 or so.

This may or may not work, I know when I tried to burn a DVD of MP3 files my home DVD player wouldn't play it, but it would happily play MP3's off a CD for whatever reason.
