I get my 12 SLT delivered on Thursday. It has the stock stereo Unfortunately I just discovered it does not even have Uconnect in it.
My first plan was to upgrade the stereo, and was hoping to buy it now that way Im not burning time on my XM subscription (that I will prob have to fight to move to a Sirius subscription). Not really sure what my best options would be though. Here is what I am looking for
Ipod Playback and MAINTAINING the steering wheel controls
Navigation preferably with the Garmin (I dont believe the OEM has Garmin Traffic but I know some aftermarkets do, but I would like that option)
Eventually will install a backup camera
I wont lose any sleep if I dont have DVD playback, but it would be a bonus, and I wont lose any sleep if I dont get hands free, but to my understanding most OEM require the hands free to have Ipod intergration.
My question is what is my best options? I was looking at the Kenwood DNX890HD but I would need the steering wheel interface, and have no clue where to get one. I really want to try and stick to plug and play, I know I will have the combined GPS/Sat antenna so at least I dont have to run that. I am not big about installing this but It doesnt seem too rough, especially if i go to the OEMautopartsco site that has all the instructions. I just dont know what combination to get from there. I was initially under the impression the RHB4829 would work but then Id have to buy the Ipod kit, AND the Uconnect kit to install Uconnect. That makes me pushing close to 1700.
Any help is appreciated. I know this is alot for my first post but I have been wanting a truck for a while, go figure I buy one when I move to the south and have lived with my 2 wheel drive Charger in CT for 4 years haha. But hoping to make the best of this forum and the knowledge on it to help me get over my newbism Thanks!
