Default RAM-1500 Radio replacement

Does anyone know if it is possible to replace the standard stereo / satellite / CD in my 2009 RAM? (1D3HV18P09S802696). With an LCD screen based RAM radio. If so what model radio should I be looking for? And can I expect the wiring harness to be compatible?

Thanks for your interest

Yes, you certainly can and wiring shouldn't be an issue. Below is a list of available radios for 2009. The nav unit will require the addition of a GPS antenna. If you install it yourself, you'll need to have the dealer update the build configuration.

DESCRIPTION

Available radio receivers for this vehicle include:

AM/FM/CD/WMA and mini jacks (Sales Code RES).

  • Auxiliary input jack for portable MP3 player/iPod playback through vehicle speakers
  • Two-line display with text capability
  • Voice Recognition System
  • Optional integrated Sirius Radio
The AM/FM Stereo with a 6-disc CD/DVD changer with MP3/WMA auxiliary jack (Sales Code REQ)

  • Automatic slot-in power loading 6-disc internal changer. A changer loaded with MP3 discs provides music for thousands of miles of driving without ever listening to the same track twice.
  • Disc selection using the numbered buttons
  • Accepts commands from steering wheel audio controls
  • DVD Main Menu offers a Preview and Auto Play mode, similar to most in-home DVD players. When Auto Play is selected, the movie or program will begin 10 seconds after the selection is made.
AM/FM/CD/DVD/HDD/MP3 (REN sales code)

  • 6.5 in (165 mm) Quarter VGA TFT full color display with a touch-screen panel
  • Customizable background photo screen
  • The motorized screen flips down to accept a disc for playing or downloading music or data onto the hard disc drive to maintain its compact size
  • Touch-screen buttons are menu and mode driven for easy operation
  • Backup Camera ready
  • A 20-gigabyte hard disc drive for ripping CD audio from the DVD drive onto the hard drive in compressed format, either MP3 or WMA file formats
  • Radio capable of recording from AM, FM, SAT, DVD Drive, AUX, phone and microphone
  • Universal Serial Bus (USB) on lower right of radio for downloading files onto the hard drive. Software and files cannot be run off the USB port at this time.
  • MUSIC JUKE BOX feature is similar to a virtual disc changer, which allows up to 9 gigabytes of music (about 10 CDs) and pictures to be stored on the hard drive. The organization of the music files is intuitive; songs are organized by CD or album in contrast to MP3 and WMA folder and filename conventions used with downloadable music files off the Internet. The JPEG picture viewer allows the screen to be personalized with a picture as an alternative to the home screen image supplied with the radio.
  • Playlists can be created to provide easy access to files, or a file can be accessed in the exact sequence and structure it was recorded onto the hard drive and played back directly from the disc. The user can also choose to repeat folder, random play all songs and repeat a song.
  • MEDIA button allows the selection of DVD audio, CD, SDAR, etc. After pressing this button the touch-screen buttons will appear for the appropriate mode.
  • Voice memos can be recorded using the microphone integrated into the rearview mirror. The memos can be up to three minutes in length and a pop-up window appears 15 seconds before the recording limit. Up to 64 memos can be stored on the hard disc drive.
  • GraceNotes® database installed on the hard disc drive provides song identification, including title, composer, artist and title. An update will be available to the customer every quarter from a website server hosted by the supplier or through the dealership. All quarter updates are downloadable independent of the previous update.
  • Displays movies on the screen for entertaining passengers.

Thanks for the fast reply, I read somewhere that where it pertains to the REN & RER modules there are two types "slow update" and "fast update", it does seems to matter what model will work.
Know any more about this?

REN does not have Navigation and requires a separate Uconnect module that you would for sure have to have the dealer get working for you but I put an RER Navigation unit in my truck everything works including satellite now why would I need to go to the dealer? Unless you want to know about recalls or you need it for insurance? Or unless the newer trucks have changed.

I was going off the assumption he would also want the uconnect feature, hence the need for the configuration change.
