Newbie help - swapped res for a rer navigation
Hello everyone

Newbie question here and really need some help,

Just installed a RER navigation radio out of a Chrysler in my 2012 compass yesterday and everything is working except I ant pick up any satellites for the navigation/ GPS to work.

Satellite Sirius radio is working fine with new antenna plugged in and receives signal.

Gps navigation doesn't find any satellites, it found 1 satellite yesterday for about 2 minutes when on the interstate that's it, until has a brand new gps antenna that I have moved from behind the dash near radio to driving on the interstate 45 minutes with it directly on top of the truck and still nothing.

Would also like some info on how to change chrysler logo to jeep logo, I read it does it automatically sometimes but nothing yet and I have turned truck off about a hundred

Please help anyone.......thanks

Nobody's willing to help me? Is it because I'm new

FujativeOCR 06-13-2013 09:11 PM

Or we don't know the answer

FujativeOCR 06-13-2013 09:12 PM

Do you have a navigation subscription through anyone? Garmin etc?

Cedallstar 06-13-2013 11:54 PM

I only have Sirius for satellite radio and traffic...never heard of having to have a subscription because the navigation is built in factory

FujativeOCR 06-14-2013 10:39 AM

Oh yeah. I forgot the subscriptions are for map updates.

From my experience at the Nitro Forums, I think there is another antenna that has to be installed, specifically for the GPS.
I don't think it's plug-n-play.

Nba, I have the gps navigation antenna already plugged in, the harness was plug n play, I got the mic kit, satellite antenna, and gps antenna installed. Everything works fine except the gps navigation, its not picking up any satellites but responds to Gforce of vehicle but not the navigation part. The arrow actually moves but its like 50 miles away from where I'm at, any other idea what it could be?

Not to be a Debbie downer, but I have a feeling the RER isn't compatible. From my limited research, there's a lot more that goes into swapping a radio than meets the eye (I.e. CAN BUS differences). if I were you, I would call a few dealerships in my area to see if that particular radio is even compatible.

good luck dude, hope everything works out

Cedallstar 06-15-2013 10:54 PM

Thanks nba, its all compatible, all low speed, all plugged right in and everything works flawless except that one thing now, today I finally got the logos to change to my jeep, think I will have to get dealer to maybe program the navi or register it to my jeep and I will be all set

Appreciate the help
