i don't think those lockpicks work with the 5.0/ra2. the website says only 8.4" screens. if anyone hears of something like this that does work though, i would be interested in hearing about it.

This is what happened with my wife's cherokee. We had the normal 8.4" display, not nav, and we received a letter telling us that we could activate nav for our headunit for like $500. Didn't seem to even require dealer interaction.

Well, The search for a NAV solution for the 5.0 goes on. I do hope that it is an option that you can just turn on, but I doubt that. I did call the LockPick people and they are really great. They agreed to help me try one and mailed me one to test. I put it in (which is ULTRA simple by the way!!) and it didn't work. We discovered that it is a Fiat radio, which has a completely different interface. They are working on the solution. I will keep you posted. They are very optimistic that they will be able to make it work.

I hope they get it to work. That would be awesome. How much do they run? I asked my jeep dealer and they said the nav wasn't something you could add later

What a great show of interest by those guys to make sure they got it right. Keep us posted on any further info you get.

Dealer told me 2k to add nav after purchase, found one at a different dealer with navigation installed and paid less for the car overall.

This does look great, I would want it for my 5.0 system.

Read 'em and weep! It was a wait, but it was worth it! I have a Renegade Red Limited, that sadly came with the Uconnect 5.0 which I hated to be honest. I heard of various problems with the Uconnect 6.5 in this car also. So, indeed, I went OEM factory replacement direct fit headunit, and it went like a charm! Yes, including rev-cam view on the lovely 7.0" TFT screen, and yes, audio controls on steering wheel all working nicely. It feels like a new car to be honest! Lovely colors as opposed to boring black&white too. Jeep really oughta be less cheap, particularly on the so-called de luxe Limited models.
