Default Nav radio

Ok guys i have 2012 express and im unhappy with the basic radio...looking at the oem units I cant believe they are asking $1200 and above!!! I really don't care about uconnect but it would be nice. Mostly looking for navigation and radio...aftermarket? Or factory? and good prices somewhere??

Thanks

$1200? Wow! Definitely aftermarket... Look at Crutchfield... or if you prefer OEM, check out eBay.

I really like my own RER High Speed Can Bus radio
it was OEM in 2009, 2010 Rams
in 2011 it was replaced by the RHR, but they were interchangeable
the main difference was the antennas

I faced a similar dilemma with my 2012.
It came with the standard 130RES radio w/UConnect module.

The RER seems to be a good unit, however, I am not sure if you will need to add a separate antenna for the GPS.

I ended up going with a Non-Nav RBZ unit,
since we already have a Garmin with lifetime map updates that we like.

ETA: UConnect is something I would definately look into.
Having the hands free phone is nice,
but telling the radio to play a certain music track, artist or album is priceless.



Well, actually, I guess Chrysler does put a price on it........
