Want to swap in factory NAV.

I have a 2010 srt8 with the factory 430 (REN) radio. Can I switch to the 430N (RHB) with out any issues? Do I have to run a NAV antenna or does it share the connection with the sirius radio? I want navigation and I heard the Garmin based one was better than the one on the 730 radios.

Do what you want but for the cost of the 430N you would be better served by a stand alone Garmin GPS (take your pick). Otherwise it is a direct plug-n-play except for the nav antenna requirement. I've read on the forums that it works when left under the dash. I've also seen the PN listed but I do not have it. It is reported that 2011+ use the sat radio antenna for nav. If you go with a 730N it is more work because of the built-in Uconnect.

I have 430 REN and bluetooth and uconnect. I just wanted the built in GPS. I will look for a used one floating around for a good price. I just wanted to be able to swap in and out in a few mins using factory plugs.

So there is no factory radio option that lets me just swap and gain GPS?

Yes, the RBH 430N is a direct replacement for your REN. You would need to search the forum for the best way to handle the GPS antenna. The information is out there. I have seen Low Speed Bus RBH radios as low as $750 and high as $1800. Your REN might be worth $200-$300 to someone wishing to upgrade an RES. Your bluetooth & Uconnect will operate the same as before the swap. I went from an RES to an RBZ and did not need to do anything special for my Uconnect to continue working.

So I would need to get the 430N (RHB) and a GPS antenna? I was told the gps antenna is installed under the dash and its no big deal to put it in. Is this correct? I have also been told if you have sirius radio you dont need to install the GPS antenna because it uses the same one for nav.

I can vouch for what BW said, the aftermarket antenna's working fine under the dash. Unless you are just wanting to keep a factory style radio look I would at least consider some of the aftermarket alternatives. I bought the cheap factory radio, pulled it and put in a Kenwood Excelon DvD/NAV/BUC/BT/iPod/USB etc. Love the handsfree blue tooth and the NAV on the Kenwood's is Garmin.

The factory GPS antenna is indeed under the dash; you need to remove the upper dash to access. Directions are on here somewhere.
