I just talked to my local dealer and they're seriously the most retarded people I've ever dealt with.

How can a DODGE dealer not know/understand what DODGE is pushing out in the future? Is the communication from corporate that bad?

He's telling me that the only thing available for the 2013's is a 3 in external LCD that is ran to a backup camera... SERIOUSLY? Is this 1990?

I asked him why they have a rig on their lot with the SAME EXACT stereo that I have in my rig and HAS THE PARKVIEW CAM installed. He said "I dont know, thats strange"

This is seriously the dumbest sh*t I've had to deal with in a long time....

I think the Mopar headquarters is slow to release the accessories due to the new line up. The dealers are just not vesting as much time as we do in knowing all the details. I'm usually the one with the answer when purchasing or getting an accessories. I've come to appreciate those long term dealership employees that really try to know and things like these message boards.

I'm waiting on the cameras to be released or lockpick (one more month supposedly) to release their hack to the system.

I never understood the lockpick... I thought it was only beneficial if you wanted to use NAV or watch a DVD while driving?

Lockpick is a lot more...it turns on menu items that would typically be hidden, adds the ability to add four cameras (front, rear, sides, etc.) or more, enter Nav data on the fly and even play videos off an iPhone. I don't use the DVD hack and ironically that takes care of itself in the newer models since they don't have DVD players. I do play videos on long trips but for the wife and who ever is traveling with us. I do not watch them myself but listening to the movie is enough to keep me entertained. I can listen to Planes, Trains, and Automobiles a hundred times :-)

I camera deal is worth it alone - by the time you buy that Mopar camera and pay to have it programmed to the radio...get ready for sticker shock. For $225 to $325ish, I have a camera, install, and setup all on my timeline and without a trip to the dealer...and you can add aftermarket cameras to the tailgate handle, or use the Mopar one but they are pricey.

for those that are wondering when they can get the REMOTE CD/DVD PLAYER, Sales Code RH1, it will be available in May
None of the 2013 radios have a CD player within the radio, it will be in the console by your right elbow

I don't think there's a time limit...stand your ground and wait for the factory setup to be released. I think it will work out, just have to wait.

Just picked up a 2013 express and my rearview camera is seen through my mirror. Maybe you could get those parts.
