Hi, just checking out your thread, as i would like to do this upgrade as well, my question is, did you have/or hook up the back up camera to yours, if so other than the obvious camera and harness, was there anything else required for the b/u camera
thanks

I have not added the factory camera to my truck. However, I did ask the service deptartment about activating it so I could add camera, and they said it was a hardware install and it should work after being installed.. That said, I'm not sure I believe them.

Before I swapped radios, I installed an aftermarket camera in the factory position, and wired it into a rear view mirror with a monitor in it. It seems like a better option as far as ergonomically for me at least. My wife's Durango has the factory camera hooked up to the RHR radio, and I can't get used to looking at it rather than the mirror locatoin. I was contemplating adding another camera to the back at license plate level which would be hooked to the radio, but havent' figured out that wiring yet.

Great write up Andy, thank you.

I am in the process of doing something similiar but I am upgrading from the RER to the RHR. I am having problems with the unit. It seems that something is terribly wrong. The install went fine but the screen remains black with the buttons lighting up green as they should. I have been told that maybe it is a Can Bus issue or maybe even a security code issue but not sure. Do you have any advice for me on what to start checking?

Thanks

The first thing that comes to mind, which you've already thougt of is the CAN Bus speed. Make sure that the radio is the High Speed version. If it isn't it will not turn on which leads me to your description of a black screen. I had some success using oemautopartsco.com as a reference.. Their P/N is the last 4 digits of the Mopar P/N for the radio. So if you can find that number on there, it will let you know the bus speed.

A security code issue will form as the radio's screen will ask for the security code.. If it's a 2012 or older radio, 0000, 1111, or 1234 usually works. But I don't think it's your problem since there is nothing on the screen.

Let me know how you make out.. Or if I can help find what bus speed your radio is.

Hey Andy,

Do you know if they make a RHR unit that is low speed Can Bus. I am pretty sure my RER (2010 Ram 2500) is high speed? Aren't the 2010 + Ram Trucks all high speed?

Thanks

Yes.. The 2012 Dodge Caliber used the low speed bus RHR radios for the nav radio.. The one I used was from a 2012 Caravan, which uses the high speed like the 2009 RAM. All of the Gen 4 up through 2012 uses the high speed bus. So 2009 - 2012 1500 RAM and the 2010-2012 2500-3500 are high speed. The 2009 2500-3500 was low speed.

Thanks Andy. I suspect I have a low speed unit.

From what I can tell, the RHR P/N # is P68092000AC. High speed unit that will fit:


Will fit and work in:
Chrysler
2008 - 2013 Town & Country

Dodge
2008 - 2013 Caravan
2009 - 2010 Journey
2009 - 2012 RAM 1500
2010 - 2012 RAM 2500/3500/4500
2007 - 2012 Nitro

Jeep
2008 - 2013 Liberty
2007 - 2013 Wrangler (verify mounting style)


Not sure why mine is not working?? Could it be that my RER is low speed?? Andy, do you know of anyplace to have this unit looked at and repaired if necessary?

Thanks again for all your help!

My search on that part number came up with the same info that it's a high speed radio..

I have heard that oemautopartsco.com will repair and return mygig radios, but I can't personally vouch for them as I've never used them..

I'm running through my mind what could cause this, but coming up blank. When I did mine, I was surprised on how easy it was for the hookup, even though I had things that I had to get and install. Like the Combo roof antenna and the cable for the mirror.. The radio played AM/FM and Sirius immediately when I plugged it in.

Still interested to know what is wrong, so keep me updated.

Andy

I do know from reading several sites & reading carefully what one of our members XSDBS has written

the 2009 - 2012 RAM uses the High Speed Can Bus radios
RHR, RER, RHB, RBZ, & REN models all can be hooked up to the stock back up camera, called Parkview

no other adapters like the Lockpick or Allgig add ons are necessary, unless you wish to bypass the safety features of the stock units, or add more then one camera

Some High Speed models have the mounting brackets on the top & bottom, the RAMs have them on the sides

__________________________________________________

those of you that did upgrade your radio to the RHR or RER
that External Uconnect module that you left in your Ram when you upgraded, now have money in the so called bank.
You no longer need it & many others want it
it is not cheap to purchase new
