I just picked up my Express crew cab and I love it but I'm a little confused. It was my understanding that when you get the Black Package you get the Prefered Equipment Group as well which is why you get the 5.0 with it. Included in the Preferred Equipment Group is the Nav system, but I dont have Nav on my 5.0 just the compass.

Was I wrong in my thinking that you get Nav with that package or was I supposed to get it and it was just never enabled with my truck?

The 2016 Ram 2500 I'm looking at has this listed under the Uconnect 5.0 features:

Radio: Uconnect 5.0

5.0" Touchscreen Display
GPS Antenna Input
Integrated Voice Command w/Bluetooth
Media Hub
Overhead Console
Rear View Mirror w/Microphone
Charge Only Remote USB Port
Temperature & Compass Gauge
SiriusXM Satellite Radio
1-Yr SiriusXM Radio Service
For More Info, Call 800-643-2112
No Satellite Coverage w/AK/HI

Can anyone tell me what the GPS Antenna Input is there for? Is there a nav app that can be installed? I can't find any info from the uconnect link in the above post. (Thanks for the link though, very helpful)

It's for sat radio. You need a separate antenna for sat and am/fm.
