Not to hi-jack but thought I would offer up some helpful information to everyone here since there has been discussion regarding the RHR. The LockPick V.5 adapter to use a MyGig in an 05-07 WK does not currently support the RHR. It only supports up to the RER. I have an 06 WK Limited that we have put an RHR into and currently the radio powers on and runs but every now and then the audio will cut out for 10-15 mins and only come out of the front passenger side door speaker and there is no volume control. Also Bluetooth audio streaming audio does not come through. Everything connects fine and shows to be functioning properly but the audio still does not come through. I called CoastelETech, the company that makes the LockPick, and they said they are 2 months away from releasing a software patch to support the RHR. They explained that while the CAN Bus systems are the same speed and therefore compatible, the language is different and the LockPick interprets the signals between the radio and the vehicle computer system so that they can communicate. Since the LockPick does not know what the Bluetooth Audio streaming feature is, it cannot interpret the signals so that the vehicle can use it. They also said that the audio cutting out problem was that same as one they had with the RER before they released and supporting software patch.
So the RHR will operate but not 100%, however we are two months away from having what should be full compatibility!
While thanks for the info about the software update but my RHR has full functionality with the Lockpick V5 adapter. Not one issue at all, my Bluetooth audio streaming works flawlessly!
CoastelETech says they are aware that it can work with an RHR, problems with functionality are hit and miss. Some users it works fine, some have issues. I have tried two different brand new LockPicks and they exhibit identical issues. The radio was tested by OEMAutoParts and worked flawslessly on their bench. Since no two vehicles are going to be identical, the possibility of having issues varies. But the LockPick V.5 does not officially support the RHR according to the manufacturer. They are adding it to their list of supported radios within the next two months once they release the software patch.
Congrats that you have no issues! You are lucky! I however am one of the few cases that have issues that will be resolved once the software patch is out with official RHR software support.
Mine cuts out. It's annoying. I was thinking about selling it and just getting an aftermarket system. But i might hold out for a few months if a solution is coming.
That is what my RHR is doing. It cuts out except for the front passenger door speaker and I loose all volume control when this happens. Carlos at CoatalETech said that my symptoms were similar to what they were getting from the RER units before they came out with their software update for it.
Any one know if the software updates have been done to the lockpicks and if they are working with RHR's in 2005-2007 wk? Great Thread with great info, thanks everyone.
Hey man I'm the OP on this thread. I have since upgraded the RER I had installed to an RHR and it works flawlessly with the Lockpick Adapter that I currently have installed in my 2005 WK. And I NEVER needed this so called software update at all to my Lockpick. They've been installed for over a yr and a half just about with absolutely NO issues. Every feature is active and working 100%. The issues that someone else is claiming they're having is most likely a bad RHR and/or Lockpick.
