Default Ipod/Iphone cable rerouting and vehicle specific mount install on RER radio

Hello,

I recently did my own version of an ipod/iphone cable reroute in my 2010 Laramie. In this guide, I have used the original ipod interface cable that came with the truck (black end). It works with all functionality of iphone 4 ipod with 4.1 os installed. It does give a warning box when first plugging in phone that there may be a compatibility issue. I have ordered the updated cable from Dodge dealer to correct this warning (white end).

This install gives me the functionality to plug in my iphone and place it in the mount for hands free use or the ability to place my ipod in the glove box when cell phone use it not desired.

From what I understand, the updated cable will be needed to use a newer ipod touch to get charging functionality.

Parts used:

Ipod extension cable (phone end is the same size as Apple cable and works with most cases installed)

Vehicle specific cell mount

Updated Ipod interface cable(link provided for info, ordered mine through Dodge)
http://www.mopar-accessories.com/en-...ubGroupId=3334



Here is my version:

1. Tools needed: T20 torx driver, #2 phillips, 1/4 round file and a pocket screwdriver or trim removal tool.



2. Remove center console chrome trim ring by prying upward gently.



3. Remove lower tray insert.



4. Remove two phillips head console screws.



5. Set park brake and place shifter in drive with engine off. Remove center console trim panel by lifting and popping spring loaded tabs.



6. Remove driver side lower console kick panel by popping spring loaded tabs.



7. Remove passenger side lower console kick panel by popping spring loaded tabs.



8. Remove 110 outlet trim bezel by popping spring loaded tabs.



9. Remove screw above 110 outlet.



10. Remove top tray insert.



11. Remove two top tray screws.



12. Remove center trim panel for radio and controls by popping spring loaded tabs and lean rearward.



Continued on next post.

I did this but did a different way of getting the cable routed. Goes the same place just don't have to take the dash apart.

Take out bottom glove box( just lifts out)

One screw holds the bottom of the top glove box and it pops out.

Take new cable and run it through the hole in the center counsel do not have to take it all apart.

With the glove boxes out you just feed the cable until you can grab it.

Take light off top glove box and feed cable in through with no filing.

Put light back on. Put top glove box with screw. Put lower glove box back. All done. 5-10 minutes.

Is your phone mount held in place by the vent? I cant tell how its installed. What type of mount is it. It looks great there especially if you were using the Nav.

Great job, and great 'how-to' post!

That vehicle specific mount sure looks interesting. Do you have any pix that specifically show it off?

Default Here is the mount kit

The vehicle specific mount bolts on with the radio mount screws on either side of the unit. I found the default right side to be the best. The bolt on part of the mount is just a stainless bracket with a large plastic ball made onto it. The rest of the kit attaches to the mount via rubber grommets and friction. It is almost infinitely adjustable.

A Picture:



Thanks,

Mike

Excellent how to with a great set of pics. This can also be used for other work that requires centre console removal. Thanks for posting this.
