OK, I know this has been covered ad-nauseum but sometimes it's like reading Legalspeak so i'm just gonna ask a dumb question :scratchhead::thumbsup:
I originally bought my 13 Plus with the 130 with the intention of going aftermarket for a system. I've realized now, for various reasons, i'd rather not.
I would, however, like to have a touch screen, hard drive, etc. and retain my u-connect, hands free, and other stock features so i'm looking at a 430. Nav is not important as I already have a dedicated portable unit in the glove box.
The question is, will an older unit like an REN be a true plug and play and retain all functionality when I push the little buttons on my wheel ?:thumbsup:
Cheers, Lee S.

Same also applies for a 430 (non Nav) - has to be a low speed bus.

Chrysler makes two versions high speed and low speed, you'll need to low speed for your Challenger.

Thanks guys. Well aware of the Buss speed requirements. Just the older, pre 12 unit in a a newer vehicle connectivity question is my sticking point :umbrella:

I'm sorry, I thought you had what you needed. Any low speed unit will work in any year Challenger. Only difference between pre '11 and '11 up is you'd have to add a nav antenna under the dash if you run a pre '11 in your '11 up.

There are things that need to be done to make different units work in different equipped cars, but a 430n will work for you... just need to add the nav antenna if it's '10 or older. What's better for you depends on the deal you get... I mean, if you can get an equivalent older unit for $150 cheaper than a newer one, adding the extra antenna shouldn't be a deal breaker. I saw one on eBay not so long ago that came with the nav antenna even.
