Well, with an 06, if you have the REC nav unit you can use the existing Dash, but if you have a regular smaller radio, you can just cut the dash to fit the RER unit with a template that is around on the internet, and usually included with the lockpick adapter. On 06 and 07 the "bezel" is actually a "cover" that basically covers your whole dash from the right to left of the whole front dash area.
I am now having issues with the rear factory VES though.
I received the lockpick adapter and installed it exactly as described in the included instructions.
I have a 2007 Jeep Commander that had an REC navagation unit it there before. My truck also has the factory VES system in the back for the kids.
When i set the lockpick adapter dip switch to indicate I have the factory VES (dip switch 4), the VES selection tab does not show up on the display, and I can not control the rear VES at all.
Likewise, the rear VES can no longer use the radio or etc. The rear VES is on its own, only able to play DVD's or CD's inserted to the rear VES. It seems totally cut off from the front RER nav unit I installed.
When I set the lockpick to the other setting (no rear VES) then the lockpick video/audio input wires work, and the VES tab shows up, but there again is no control of the rear VES and the rear VES still is not able to use the radio etc.
Is this normal? Am i doing something wrong?
The lockpick adapter has all the plugs filled but i have noticed there is one white connector from the lockpick that seems to have no equal cable to plug into it. I think it might be a media connector cable? The inputs and outputs also from from this part of the harness. My REC i took out only had two connectors... the power, speakers etc and the smaller connection next to it, so not sure where or why there is this second plug that seems to have no connection to anything?
