|Tortilla Chris||Thanks. If it gave me everything that a 2021 model comes with I would have been very tempted, but $1500 for just AA isn't worth it. I could buy a dedicated tablet for navigation for 15% of that price or just continue to use my phone for free.|

|Fast55||The answer appears to be, you get what you had before, nothing extra except the ability to use Carplay or Android Auto.|

I've got a 2015 WK2 Summit 4x4 and am thinking of getting the Infotainment UAQ head unit upgrade. Does anyone know if you get new system apps like the "Off Road Pages" with this? That is not something that my vehicle currently has.

Install was fairly easy and straightforward. Overall a great upgrade. Loving the higher resolutions screen and Apple Carplay is awesome so far. May get rid of my SiriusXM subscription now.
Did anybody ever have any luck getting the Sirius XM Guardian to work after you upgraded?

|NicRuf||I finally broke down and ordered one from Infotainment a week or so ago. Just came in today so I'll be trying to get it working tonight. Pretty excited. The youtube video they have seems pretty straight forward so hopefully I don't mess anything up.|

The ECU tells the radio what vehicle features are active based on the VIN. The ECU software can be modified to add more features to the VIN, a couple different tools can do that. Other things like sirius and uconnect apps are in the radio and probably tied to the radio ID so they move with the radio.
Anyway its good to know that newer carplay radios can be installed in older models with few if any issues.

All the brains for settings are outside of the main unit (BCM maybe?), so you can pretty much plug and play any Uconnect radio so long as it has the correct mounting configuration (even the RAM ones will fit). I just put a 2018 Laredo radio in my 2016 Limited and it carried over all my settings; even had the heated seat, wheel, etc. settings enabled automatically. All the user-configurable car settings carried over too. The only catch is if you use a used radio like I did, you must get the security code from the vehicle you got it from otherwise the radio stays locked. Seems to me this is the only advantage of getting it from Infotainment, as they unlock the radio for you ahead of time. Their speal about the radios being "pre-programmed for your vehicle" is hogwash.

Says to call agent, but I haven't had time to do that yet. I don't care that much as I don't want to pay the monthly fee anyway, but thought it'd be fun to try for the trial period if I can get it to work, but I haven't heard of anyone getting it to work when upgrading from old Uconnects.
