Mygig in a 06

Ok my nav screen went out on me so now I'm looking to put a Mygig nav in. Does anybody have a pic of one installed? I have seen the one with the filler plate around the radio. I'm looking for one with a pocket above or below the nav to take up the space. I will post pics of the install and post the process.
Thanks,

Yeh, I have sent them a few e-mails. You lose control over the ves and sound from the ves. You also need a mic for the voice control/u-connect. I might try to rewire my mic in the mirror. I found the adapter on e-bay for $190 with the extra harness for av. The only thing I'm not sure of is if the steering controls for the u-connect will still work. I know they do for the audio.

D-niceCommander,
That would be awesome if you could post some pics of your process. I want to do the same upgrade but have been putting it off because I really do not know what I am doing. I have a friend that can help but I am just nervous I will lose UConnect functionality. Good luck.

Just ordered the lock pick adapter $185, Rer Mygig low speed $599, And mygig mic $20 with $11 shipping ( yep 11 bucks ). For a total of $816. They wanted $665 to fix the old one. so I thought for the extra $150 why not upgrade. should be here next week.

That's not a bad price for all of that in my opinion. Any luck with the install?

Did a similar install as well, except with a REN instead of a RER. Don't forget you'll also need a bezel and a Sirius extension cable if you subscribe or intend to subscribe to it.

I'm thinking of getting one just so my resale doesn't take a hit, for 25 bucks or so I can say it has Sirius, rather than having to tell someone they have to go get a wire, run it through the Jeep, pull out the radio, and connect it, then you'll have Sirius!

Just got it installed today. Everything went well except the clock read 12:00 all the time. Tried to change it with no success. I think its an update issue. I do have Sirius. I had got a new Sirius antenna before the install.I had relocated it to the front of the Commander. I had planned to put a roof basket on. So I just rerouted the wire to the back of the radio instead of the box under the back seat. I will try to get some pics up soon. If any knows how to fix the clock please let me know.

Set the Time

1. Press the time soft-key in the lower left corner of the screen.
The minutes are set by the GPS system.
2. Press the Set Time Zone soft-key to change to the desired
time zone.
3. Press the Daylight Savings soft-key to switch Daylight Saving
on or off.
It is possible to set up your own time (ahead or behind actual
GPS time), by pressing the USER CLOCK soft-key.
