I don't think it can be done. The 430 RBZ does not have a GPS antenna port like the 430N RHB does. You'll have to get a HU that has NAV built into it.

Have you tried to PAIR your phone to the Uconnect? Look in your owners manual and it will give you the steps on how to do it. No info means it has no phones Pair'd with it.

I put 13,860 miles on my 2012 Ram 1500 Express and had ZERO problems with it. Traded it in for a 2013 1500 Big Horn. Hoping for the same good experience!
