Upgrading from 130 to 430n or 730n

This question seems to come up quite frequently. What do I need to upgrade my 130 to a RER/RHB/RHR, is it (PNP) plug and play? So I thought I might write up some information to maybe ease the pain. This may be something the MODs might want to sticky because of how frequent this topic comes up.


Here we go.

1) When upgrading to MyGig, the first thing one should look for is a LOW BUS speed unit. These were used in many vehicles and are plentiful to be found used at a reasonable price. Far from many rumors, the BUS speed has not changed since the first Challenger up until 2014. This is a true PNP, radio wise. Just plug it in, and it works. No going to dealer to activate anything. If buying used from unreliable source, get the part number and do a Google search to see if it cross references to your application. If local, plug it into your car on the spot. It doesn't take but a little time. If your car doesn't start, don’t buy it. It’s a HIGH speed BUS unit.

2) In 2011, the RER changed to RHR and 430n became a NAV. With that, most import to note is that the antenna changed. They combined the NAV and Sirius into one. If putting RHB/RHR into 2010- might be best to purchase new antenna. RER into 2011+ is ok because you still need separate antenna for NAV.

3) Any unit 2012 and newer requires a 4 digit anti-theft pin code to activate (so they say, some have reported different). When purchasing one used, make sure you get it. If not, you will need the VIN from the donor car to retrieve the pin from dealer.

4) 2010- units will work in 2011+ vehicles and vice versa as well. See notes above about antenna changes.

5) 430n’s have external hands free modules. 730n’s have internal hands free modules.

6) The easiest way to convert from 130 with Uconnect is to use the RHB. No adapter harness is needed.

7) If you have Uconnect and want to upgrade to RER/RHR, you WILL need a conversion harness to get your mic to work. They make 2. The first is part number 82211666 ($119.00) and is intended for 2010- vehicles. This goes from back of radio to mic’d mirror. With this you will need part number 68068278AB ($25.00) as well to connect console USB. For 2011+ they came out with another harness. Part number 82212906 ($81.40). This harness goes directly from the back of radio to the OEM plug you unplugged from the HFM. With it comes the USB extension you will need to get the console USB to function again. Now, I can’t verify if 2010- owners can purchase the 82212906 and use this and save some cash. The part number for the hands free module changed for 2011 but the 22 way wire connector stayed the same.

That is about all I can think of now. If anyone knows of better or more info, please post. This can be an ongoing post for others to contribute to. The more the merrier.



LOW SPEED UNIT Part numbers NOTE: Some units came RSC(Sirius) and NON RSC. When purchasing, ask for confirmation (or a picture of unit) if this is an option you want. Also, as stated above, 2012+ units are security code locked. You need code from seller and/or may need receipt and vin from seller to get code from dealer.


This is most but probably not all. They are multi fit: meaning they are not only Challenger part numbers. Some are Compass, Avenger, Caliber,Patriot. All being LOW SPEED.

I have the very base radio with no uconnect or sat. (2009 model) Would it be best then to upgrade to a 730N RER since the uconnect is already pre-installed inside the unit?

If so, what parts do I need to purchase to make it work smoothly? (antenna, harness, etc..)

Thanks

Yes..RER would be best bet. All you would need is the NAV antenna and a hands free mic. Either the mirror mounted one or a remote. I did the very same hing to my daughters Sebring. She had base radio and I added a RER and remote mic.

Chargerdude, glad this thread was posted - thank you!

Quick question, I am looking at a 430 (non Nav) unit for a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan. I am pretty confident that this will work considering I have a Uconnect 130 w/ Sirius & BT.

Btw, is a price of $200 worth it?

Not sure how to answer this because of how asked? If you are asking if a 2012 Mini Van Mygig will work in a Challenger...No..its a High Speed unit..... If you are asking if it will be plug and play into a Mini Van...Yes...providing it IS a High Speed unit....Now..not all units have same capability even though they say they are 430. Some are Uconnect capable and some are not. Best to get the donor part number and research it. Hope this helps

Sorry, I should have clarified. I was looking at Mygig 430 w/ Unconnect from a 2012 Caravan to install in my 2013 Challenger R/T. According to your answer this is a high speed unit where as I need a low speed unit... Which answers my initial question.

Thanks again,

Nick

Thanks for taking the time to make this sticky! I would like to add to the following statement:

3) Any unit 2012 and newer requires a 4 digit anti-theft pin code to activate (so they say, some have reported different). When purchasing one used, make sure you get it. If not, you will need the VIN from the donor car to retrieve the pin from dealer.

I installed a 2012 unit and yes, it required a 4 digit pin code which I didn't have. I did not have access to the vin# either, but the dealer had no problem configuring it to my Challenger. It cost me $89 at my dealer. I believe they re-flashed it with the latest firmware.

Hope this helps.

Do you happen to know the part numbers for the nav antenna and standalone hands free mic?
Thanks.

Took out my 130 today and installed 730. You will need Jumper kit to move uconnect to back of 730. Also USB jumper cable. OEM Auto Parts has kit with both. Easy, plug and play , no issues , no need for dealer to active anything. Check video on OEM Auto Parts Co. 730n info page and it gives all info you need to set up everything.
