You can find them around $290-$350 depending on where you look. You need the Lockpick CHR550 version in order to get the album art. A word of warning, you need to already have the steering wheel radio controls in order for that feature to work.

I agree with Ram2011Sport. Taking the dash apart is easy, but I've had it apart a few times. Just make sure you know where all the screws are and pull firm, but gently.

I did a quick write up a while back with some pics of the install.

They have the CHR550 on ebay.. If I bought one from ebay for about $50 cheaper would that void the warranties or what ever comes with these things? I have wanted one of these since I first found out about them but they are just to expensive for my current budget.

I just got a new Ram and have some questions. I had a lockpick on my 2009 Ram and had intermittent problems with the audio going silent at different times - seemed like when there was a power surge or something such as hitting the gas. The lockpick worked great otherwise. I don't remember if it was a V.2 or a V.3 but I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this with the new CHR550? My other question is do you still have to run a power wire to the backup cam in order to use it while in motion? If so are the any photos, posts, or suggestions detailing how to do this?

I've had no glitches with the 550 since I corrected the bent pins like I have heard about with previous versions.

I can't speak for previous years, but for the 2011, there is no need to run an extra power wire for the backup camera. The camera always works when I switch to view it when driving.

Take a look at the link above I posted. I have a couple pics in that thread of the install.

Same here. After I fixed the bent pins the 550 has worked flawlessly. One of my favorite mods so far.

Thanks for the info. When I get the CHR550 I will definitely refer to these posts, pictures, and check the pins.
