2011 UConnect

Sorry... I have a 2010 Dodge RAM. Guess I had 2011 on my mind after your earlier post.

Found a UConnect module on EBay for 40 bucks. It came out of a 2012 Jeep Wrangler 1 month after purchased new... part number: 68104904AB.

Will this work in my truck?

Thanks.

I'm very "late to this party," as this thread is rather mature and (perhaps)has been nearly exhausted. I did, however, glance at a couple of responses and simply thought I'd add my personal IPod/430 experience.

In addition to my Challenger, I bought the wife a Jeep Sahara in April of this year. We ordered it, and opted for the 430 "MyGig" Nav unit.

Using the USB port, provided in the console, her IPod has worked (without any issue) perfectly with the 430 media center.

As Chrsler/Dodge/Jeep are all thought to be using similar, if not indentical, hardware/software and connectivity....I would assume that a similarly configured Challenger should also work without a "hitch."

Just my .02 cents !!

That should be fine. Let us know when you get it installed. Because of the radio HW there may be some slight issues but nothing major. Thanks

Well just a couple notes here for you & others.
1) There are 3 different suppliers of the Uconnect sytem and they are not all the same. (unfortunately)
2) Configuration isn't the key here, the SW version is as well as the upgrade HW that is in the 2012 system and also the available memory for any more files (at least for the Mitsubishi radios <RES, REQ, RBZ & RHB>, these radios have an external Uconnect module).
3) The 2012 modules have enhancements added to them that the 2011 modules may not get, with that being said, there will be differences between a 2011 & 2012 Uconnect systems. Comparing the 2 systems to each other isn't oranges to oranges.
4) These Uconnect modules are the same in all 3 (Chrysler, Dodge & Jeep) and all use the same SW version per the particular built year and there are enhancements added year to year as with anything. The only difference being in the CAN BUS speed (High or Low speed).

xsdbs - Thanks for the help

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know that the 2012 UConnect module I purchased from eBay, that was previously on a Jeep, worked flawlessly in my 2010 Dodge RAM with a RBZ system. Backup camera was what I worried the most about not functioning... but no worries... it worked just fine. This was truly a plug and play experience for me, nothing lost... streaming bluetooth from my iphone 4s now works perfectly... and I paired my wife's iphone 4 as well. It's all good! No sound degradation at all (to me), no weird skipping or fast playback symptoms that others have experienced either. I do have an extra port on the new box, which I'm assuming is a micro usb port that I would need to purchase a cable to connect in my glove box. I have a fat iPod cable there now... that does not connect to the uConnect box.

Thanks so much for your help xsdbs... I probably wouldn't have purchased that uConnect module had you not said it would be okay. The unit ended up costing me $100 bucks instead of $40... but it was well worth it. My truck is truly lacks nothing now.

Well that is great news. However please let me point out a couple minor things since you already hit on them.
1) On the new module, there are 3 connectors, {A} 10 pin cnnector, {2} 22 pin connector & {3} a micro USB connector.
2) The micro USB connector will take PN 82212160 Mopar USB / iPOd cable, about $35.
3) The iPod cable that you were using with the older module will not work on the new module. Yes I know that it plugs in but won't play the iPod. The reason for this is because that 10 pin connector now is used at the manufacturing plant for end of the line testing. So I would not plug anything into that port.
4) Thank you and I'm glad that I was able to help you out.
