Default Lockpick CHR550 Review

I just finished installing the Lockpick CHR550 to my 430 (RBZ) radio. This is the version that has a dedicated ipod in cable that syncs with your ipod/iphone to allow video and audio through. I tested both the ipod out and the ipod manual modes tonight. I must say I'm impressed and that it works as advertised.

The results are amazing! I added an aftermarket camera (CMOS2) and hooked it up as well. The backup camera works great and the ipod is working just like in the demo video. It's nice to have access to all my playlists, audio books, genius playlists, podcasts (and more) from the factory radio. The physical install took longer than I expected but it was more tedious than anything else. I took a long time making sure I routed cables correctly as well as using zip ties to hold everything in place.

I would recommend this product to anyone who is trying to get functionality from their ipod with the factory radio. The next test will be to see how durable it is and how long it lasts.
