REG v REF Radio, Uconnect and Speakers

I've just bought a new compass and ima gonna start with the easiest upgrade... which is the sound...

I have a (REG) radio... its printed REG below the right knob.

Does anyone has a similar radio? It is still possible to install the Uconnect as it is illegal to use the phone while driving...

I think I have 4 speakers, 1 on each door. Are the stock ones similar to the Mopar kicker speakers? I wanna change those 4 speaker to better ones.


Lastly, is there a stock amp + sub installed? It don't sound like I have one and I can't find them too...




Thank you.

Nobody has (REG) radio? I'm just wondering if i could install the uconnect phone on the (REG) since it has no uconnect button on it.


What about those speakers on the door? Can I change those to produce better sound? Are those mopar ones (77KICK06) better?

There are quite a few that have gone with better door speakers and found quite an improvement for a lot less money than trying to convert to the BA system - that's just not economically feasible unless you find one in a just yard.

The REG is on the export models and has different FM settings. Otherwise I believe that they would work the same on the uconnect. There is a factory installed uconnect and a dealer installed. The dealer installed is what you should look for. The buttons and microphone are located in the rear view mirror and not on the radio.

The rear view mirror that came with the drivers convenience group was auto dimming and has the buttons; the package was a requirement for the factory installed uconnect. The new mirror with mic and buttons is part of the dealer install kit. I'll need some time to see if I can find the pieces that you're looking for, hopefully this week end. Where does the time go?????

Red's my favorite - it's right in there with black, white, green, blue, khaki, silver and orange.

See if either of these uconnects will do what you want. REF (N.A.) REG (Export)

http://www.mopar-accessories.com/en-...ubGroupId=8020

If you click on "more detail" you can download an installation guide.

If so, then take the part number and Google it to find more help on installation and prices.

I just learned that the 82210081 has been replaced by 82211879. Here is an ebay link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/82211...415151001r4302

and another (cheaper) eBay link.

Yo Bob,

Thanks for the info. I've looked at the installation guide, and they don't show my radio. I've checked with an online retailer... and this is what i've got...


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hi,

Thank you for your email. We do ship to Singapore. For more information on shipping please see the link below:

Unfortunately the Uconnect will only function in North American radios. Sorry about that.

Thank You,
Peter

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I think I might not be able to install it after all

Well we tried. Process of elimination, we now know what doesn't work.

Anybody heard of this? Too cheap to be any good? It's Billy Mays - turn your sound down!
