Try a salvage yard, or check ebay for broken units that you could buy, take what you need, and re-sell without it.

Found this:
Ebay
Good luck!

No more jeeps for me... I get around by bicycle now.

been waiting to hear someone complain about that stupid design.


I'm NOT looking forward to dealing with that...hopefully it'll still be under warranty then

I know a guy in CA on another forum that has been fixing them for the LX platform for a couple of years. You'd be without your nav for a few days and I'm not sure what he charges, but it can be fixed.

I just looked on EBAY... if you search the REC unit... you will see them advertised with the "Revised Joystick".. or "new style Joystick"

I thought they changed it.. Look for another dealer or maybe the unit is only sold with the new joystick...

I just had my XK in the dealer a few days ago to have the VES installed. The dealer could not get my REC to program correctly with the DD player so they replaced it!

I would think I got the newer design...

How far out of warranty?
