Default RER into 3rd Gen (2007)

Anyone put a RER into a 06-08 1500. Got questions and need straight answers. Local dealership is kind of braindead.

the best website for Radio information is
http://oemautopartsco.com/

the site will explain about the difference between the 2 CAN BUS Systems
pre 2009 model Rams all used the LOW CAN BUS electronic system
2009 - 2014 Rams all have the HIGH CAN BUS system
the 2 systems radios are not interchangeable

Your 2007 Ram has the Low Can Bus system
pay attention to where your radios mounting tabs are, top & bottom or on the sides

the stock navigation radio for 2007 Ram was
http://oemautopartsco.com/products/r...vigation-radio

now IF the RER radio that you have has the Low Speed Bus, like from one of these, it may work for you
RER 730N MyGIG GPS Navigation Radio - Low
2008-2010 Chrysler 300
2008-2009 Chrysler Aspen
2007-2010 Chrysler Sebring
2007-2010 Dodge Avenger
2009-2010 Dodge Caliber
2008-2010 Dodge Challenger
2008-2010 Dodge Charger
2008-2010 Dodge Dakota
2008-2009 Dodge Durango
2008 Dodge Magnum
2008-2010 Jeep Commander
2009-2010 Jeep Compass
2008-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2009-2010 Jeep Patriot
http://oemautopartsco.com/products/r...an-b-low-speed

you can buy any radio cheaper on Ebay & on the RamforumZ sometimes, way cheaper then what OEMAUTOPARTSCO sells them for
Good Luck with your radio upgrade

I have the low speed radio in already using the mygig adapter with lock pick v5 vim. Where I am not getting any answers is if I want to update the 08 maps to something current I have to have the vin number registered to the radio. No one seems to be able to come up with an answer as to whether starscan can do this being the RER was not an option for the 06-08 models. I know someone out there has either tried or done it and I just need answers to proceed.

Maybe you should call NAVTEQ & explain your situation & mention that you have the RER low speed can bus
they are the nav maps suppliers
they will charge you $147 plus tax, shipping & handling, $178 USD
they usually give you 2 CDs, one for a radio update & the other is the mapping update

I upgrade my nav maps every 3 or 4 years
more often is a waste of $$$

http://www.navteq.com/

This update is compatible with the following vehicles:

Chrysler 300 (2004-2007)
Chrysler Aspen (2007)
Chrysler PT Cruiser (2004-2006)
Chrysler Pacifica (2004-2008)
Chrysler Sebring (2004-2006)
Chrysler Town & Country (2004-2007)
Dodge Caliber (2007-2008)
Dodge Charger (2004-2007)
Dodge Durango (2004-2007)
Dodge Grand Caravan (2004-207)
Dodge Magnum (2004-2007)
Dodge Viper (2006-2010)
Jeep Commander (2006-2007)
Jeep Compass (2007-2008)
Jeep Grand Cherokee (2004-2007)
Jeep Liberty (2004-2007)

I emailed them and they said that the vin has to be registered in the radio for to able to get the map update. Currently my radio vin display is blank.Somehow I need to get the radio to be starscaned over but that where the problem begins. M dealer service manager said that he can only change things over to radios that were available to the model year, which the RER was not.
