What revision of the REC's DVD do you have? I found many roads updated in my area with the AE revision over the older AD or AC. I also like the AE's added features such as Avoid Road.overall works well, love the better features of the radio, major improvment, also love the maintenence screen, will be great to stay on top of things. as for the nav, kinda a mixed bag, i had a garmin sp320 unit that could always get me from one point to another would always find a route. this unit will tell me my destination, or the area im in is not in an area where turn by turn guidance can be preformed. at that point it wont give me directions but rather give me the general direction i need to go. its up to me to figure it out, that sucks imho, but apparently the norm for dvd navs (gf's moms acura tl does the same)oh well, good overall, cant complain so much, and really makes the dash look way cooler
No. The Mopar REC unit will not play DVD movies. However, it is designed to connect to the Mopar VES DVD player to provide control and sound through the REC unit.Does this unit play dvd's?
My revision is AC, so I guess im a little out of date, that would explain some of the issues. Guess I need to find a newer disc someplace (really dont want to spend $150 tho)What revision of the REC's DVD do you have?

I also applied the patch thats available on the internet that disables the In-Motion limitations so a passenger can fully use the GPS while I drive. Works great!
Look at www.carhack.org. Most of the hacks have been for the AE revision. Theres a lot of info there if you have the know-how to do your own hacking. The in-motion patch assumes you already have the AE revision and can burn your own DVD's.Happen to have the URL for the patches for the radio? are there any "hacking" sites for this unit? any other tips or tricks with this unit?
My REC had no theft code or anything like that, I plugged it in and it worked (briefly showed the chrysler logo though) I dont believe the unit has any theft deterrance function. In my case, my car already had the factory sirius, the receiver for it is independant from the radio. It is located in the rear behind the spare (its underneath the black cardboard cover) When I plugged in the REC, the Sirius was just "there" and it was also improved, I now have Station/Artist/Title info whereas before with the orginal REF i had a crude CH 001 and no info. As far as putting it in, I believe that shouldnt be a problem but could be some work, I would check under your cardbard cover (in the spare tire well) look on the left hand side, you wont have the receiver but do you have an empty harness? if so, the reciever can go there. If not, theres the first problem. The antenna is quite another story, it mounts in the back and requires a hole to be drilled in the roof for it. not something I would ever want to attempt, I'd be too afraid of it being off center, damaging the headliner or worse, the side curtain airbags. or to have it leak. But anyway it mounts in the rear center, a few inches in from the spoiler, and id assume the wire runs down the rear side in front of the rearmost windows and comes out by the receiver (thats what it looks like by mine anyway) If you are comfortable with drilling holes in your roof, id say go for it, (link removed)has the kit ($125 i think) If not, if just go with an external add on unit, less trouble and you can move it to other vehicles too. good luckI just got my REC off ebay. I have heard some people have problems with a code (maybe a Theft deterrent, maybe?) I haven't installed mine yet, so I am not sure if this is the case or not. I also am interested to know about the installation. Did your REF unit come with the Sirius? I have the components but my original radio never came with that serius. Did you install the sirius reciever and cable and the atenna yourself too? If you did do you have any tips? Thanks for the posts here I got the Sunburst orange bezel to match my car and I am going to put in the seats like the factory RT. When I got my car all they had was the Sunburst orange (which I wanted anyhow) with the the fog lights and 17" wheels, because I couldn't come to buy anything less! They didn't have an RT or one with options so I am optionaing it out little by little. My next 2 projects are a Sun/Moon roof and those orange seats. Then I am going into the performance so I can trade it in, looking good for the SRT 4 next year. I can't wait. But any tips on this installation of the sirius would be GREAT!
