I got Uconnect working - w/o MyGig

It took awhile but I figured it out. I have installed the factory Uconnect module and it works perfect with the REQ radio (6disc,AM,FM,DVD,Sirius). I took a bunch of photos and will figure a way to get the install posted here. I have an 08 Unlimited but it should work with an 07 as well. The single disc CD radio should work too. I found a lot of the information on this board, dealers, and service techs. Thanks to all.

Rich

I have a mygig so I'm curious to know what you did and if it will work with the mygig. That way I don't have to buy the $700 part from Nav-TV.

Uconnect - the details

I cant post pics since I'm too new to the forum. I put together a PDF of the install with all the stuff you'll need. Heres the link. Hope it works. If someone can post this to a files section, please do. *File revised to ver 2.1*

There is another thread that addresses this. It's a non-chrysler part for about $80 that enables myGig. Dont use this module.

The write up is really nicely done with pics and very detailed directions. I will most certainly be doing this, assuming that it does in fact work with the single disc radio. Thanks!

If write ups were given stars to indicate how good and how detailed I'd give this one 5/5. Really makes it look simple.

Input the code into the box, then click download. After that there is a timer that counts down from 60 seconds, then you have to Click to Download again. Basically just follow the directions on the download page.
