Data cable -- 2011 WK Glove box

I hate acting like a newbie and asking trivial questions -- however I admit that in fact I am a newbie!

We just bought a low mileage 2011 Gnd Cherokee (5.7L Hemi, Quadra-Trac II, and pretty much loaded with options) to serve as the tow vehicle behind our RV.

In the glove box I discovered a 13-pin electrical connector box that in my vehicle came with a black 12" cable that will mate to the connector on the Jeep to an Apple devices (e..g., I-Phone/I-Pad). I am assuming this would allow data and tunes from an I-Phone for example to be displayed on the RER radio screen?

I've read the manual and I do not yet have the users guide DVD which I am going to secure. So I've so far read nothing on this interface. I'm specifically wondering if I can buy a similar cable that will allow me to convert this port for USB or Firewire inter-face with the radio?

If someone could direct me to a place that discusses this data port and the kind of interface cables available for it that would be great. If I even knew what name Jeep has officially given this his connector pin I could start a search on my own perhaps?

I contacted my local Jeep dealer and both parts and service were not knowledgeable about this cable and options for compatible cables Thanks!

Posting this in the WK2 forum would probably be more help. The model you posted in is for 2005-2010 grand cherokees. Hope this helps!!

If you want to use a simple USB, open your glovebox. Or plug right into the face of the radio

Thanks for the reply. Actually I must have been having a bad night or I can't handle a single Sam Adams beer anymore!

I do HAVE a 2010 Jeep -- we must have looked at 10 used ones including some 2011's and new so I "typoed" I guess! So I think I'm in the right forum but the title is obviously wrong.

Here is a pic of the socket in the Jeep glove box. As noted this socket had 1 foot long black cable with a plug for an Apple device on the distal end.

My question is what is this socket called -- so I could ask Parts to search for a cable that would allow me to connect a USB device in through this plug?

Alternatively if someone can point me to a place where I can read up on this -- not knowing what to call it makes searching it out hard! LOL!

Thanks.

Hi. Thanks. I am aware of the USB access via the front of the navigation radio but I'd like to have the ability to use the port in the glove box too. Right now it will not accept USB but I'd like to find an adapter to permit that.

I have the RER navigation radio - I think it was the only nav radio for that model year. It has a USB port on the front but it would be great to set that access port in the glove box up too.

Try following that wire harness to the other end. You may find a part number there

That's a thought. I'm not sure I will be able to without pulling the radio but I'll give it a shot.
Do some Jeep WK's have a USB port in the glove box? I've also heard reference to a USB port in the arm rest but mine has neither of those.

WIRING,Jumper,IPOD

I think the newer ones (WK2) have ones in the center console, but not sure, thats how alot of cars are now.. they have the aux and usb plug. The dash part surrounding the radio, at least on my 07 WK just pops off.. Put your finger tips behind the round part on the top of the dash and use some force to pull aft, i did this a couple weeks ago when i was on leave and it popped off and popped on flawlessly!
