Where is the best place to buy a MyGig High Speed RER system? Or does anyone have another recommendation that would fit my 2009 Wrangler and have the same features as the RER system. I am a new Jeep owner and would like to add this item.
Just an FYI that RHR units are now available, which is an upgraded RER. Used RHR units that fit a Jeep are harder to find, as the RHR must have come out of a new Dodge RAM truck. Do an Ebay or Google search. I had a good experience with OEM Auto Parts Co.
I have a 11 with the Garmin, what a pos. 12 i got the 730 my gig chrysler product for an extra 700 and it has traffick. new unit is much improved, anyone want to trade a Garmin for a 730 let me know I will even thrown in a my gig with it.
i have an 08 JK and I bought a RBZ (non-nav) from someone who told me it came out of a 11 JK. Want to get Sirius up and running but don't have an antenna since the original radio didn't have the option. Anybody know exactly what I need to get the SAT rolling? Thanks in advance.

Hullo everyone. I recently acquired a 2012 Wrangler... it has the 430N unit in it (reads RHB on the lower right).
Anyway, has anyone come up with an efficient way of adding MP3s to this thing? I've tried USB thumb drives and burned DVDs. It takes so long that, after a 30-minute drive, it's only 15% done copying about 4.3 GBs of stuff. This is just torturous! With the thumb drive method, if the unit turns off, upon restart, it doesn't seem to resume. The DVD method seems to though. It must have a dual-hamster processor or something.
I just bought a new 2012 JK yesterday W/ the connectivity group. I installed my MYGIG from my 2008 JK today. It works ok outside of a couple issues. Fist one, instead of the JEEP that usually appeared when ever I started the vehicle "Chrysler" now appears. Not a big deal but I was wondering if there was something I could do. Now the second issue is the bigger one. The Uconnect feature that came on my jeep as an option (And it worked) now doesn't work with the MYGIG. Is there anything I can do to get it so it works? It is the only one of the new stearing wheel options that doesn't work.
I know this is an older thread but, thought I'd add my experience:
I got the 430n RHB unit in my 2012 Rubi with the connectivity group and have been playing with this system for about a week and a half...
The Uconnect system is pretty solid. I have a Samsung Vibrant running Android 2.3.5 and all the features work when synced w/Bluetooth; Phone book access and audio streaming, with both steering wheel controls and voice commands working. The audio quality of the mic on the other end of the call is great and the speech recognition is pretty spot on. My wife has an HTC Espresso (MyTouch 3G Slide) that runs the same version of Android and, while everything works with it as well, there is one exception in that the steering wheel controls don't seem to allow control of track playback from the phone. You can sync 7 devices to this unit. This is pretty handy for me. I usually get tasked with hauling everyone to the studio so I'll be able to sync all my bandmates' phones and dole out control of the music wirelessly.
The Sirius functionality is pretty killer. Especially the Travel Link. My wife had Sirius for a year when she bought her Edge. We enjoyed it at first, but the novelty quickly wore off. I mostly prefer to listen to my own tunes, on my terms. Not sure I'll subscribe at the end of my year.
The interface is pretty responsive. It's not the best laid out but, it gets the job done. Streaming audio from a Bluetooth device was the only time I experienced lag but, that's to be expected. The 6-speakers and sub sound great. The balance/fader control is a square area representing the interior, split into quadrants where you touch the screen to position a block in your desired position. It has a 3-band EQ too. The sub has plenty of punch/boom to suit your preferences.
The internal hard drive is fairly spacious. It lists 28 GB of available space for your own tunes. This is almost a perfect amount of space to keep you entertained for quite a long time. You can also transfer pictures to the unit. However, you are only allowed to have 23 pictures (24 total but, one slot is taken up by the default image it ships with). Furthermore, the resolution of the screen is so low that you have to crop your pics to a fairly pathetic 240x158 pixels. All images take on a soft, somewhat blurry appearance. It also won't slideshow the images. You have to pick one as the default display and even then, you have to close all open tabs to ever see it.
Transfer/organization of music is really the biggest negative about this unit. I have transferred music via a thumb drive attached to the front USB port, a data DVD holding MP3s and through a phone and media player with the "connectivity" USB port in my center console. They are all SLOW as hell, with the DVD method being the fastest of the three. It takes me about 15 minutes to drive to work. It can transfer 7-10% of 4 GB thumb drive during that time. Fortunately, it will resume each time you start the vehicle. Otherwise, you'd have to sit there for 2 1/2 hours or take a long road trip.
My music library on my home server is made up of MP3s and clocks in at about 120 GB and growing. I organize my tunes by Artist folder, with sub-folders for albums. I have painstakingly entered all ID3 tag information, including album art, into each track. Unfortunately, the MyGig can only read 1 folder deep so, when I transfer the stuff, it throws all the album folders into the root of the hard drive together. Browsing by folder doesn't seem to be an ideal option at this point. It will create a playlist for each folder though. If you've tagged the files properly, the best way to search is by artist. When you select an artist, it will throw all the tracks, across all the albums into one list. If you tap the list tab again, it will show playlists, which will allow you to pick specific albums. This unit employs Gracenote for track info. Well... while the artist/album/song titles are displayed, it won't show album art embedded in the file or images that are in the folder. I just get a white square with a musical note icon.
Sorry for the long post but, I spent the past week experimenting and scouring the interwebs for info and wanted to consolidate it for those on a similar search. Overall, I like the unit. It's much better than shuffling CDs and, the Garmin Nav is pretty awesome. For those that dig Sirius, that's got to be another plus. I just wish they had hired a usability specialist to go over this thing though...
Ok, so I tried to search but didn't find much on this.....
I got in the Jeep today and turned on the unit......I got a (partial) display, meaning everything displayed except for the list of saved radio stations. That section of the display was blank. Same when trying to play from the HDD or Jukebox....the portion of the display where you'd normally see songs listed was blank. Also, when I navigated to the Setup menu, the "Audio Control" soft-button was disabled and none of the "beeps" occurred as usual when pushing any of the buttons.
Anyone ever experienced anything like this before? I have a 2008 JKUR with the RER as a factory option. Not sure if the firmware has ever been updated, since I'm not the original owner. I haven't checked the version number. I'll do that next time I'm in the Jeep.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. This one's got me confused.
