I believe that for certain models of Ipad, Ipod, and Iphones you could play videos to your Ram's screen with the Lockpick.

I just emailed them to ask WTF since their homepage says the C8 v2 is available but it can't be added to the cart. I also asked what the diff was between the CHR558 v2 and the C8 v2 since they both list the same features.

Interesting product but I would not trust my Ram's electronics to a company that cannot even put up a modern website. Interesting that they have a poor C- rating with Better Business Bureau, too.

Good point Geodasher, I wonder if they're using those little paint ticks across connectors etc to show that the factory seal has been tampered with so they can blame an expensive warranty repair on a tampering owner.
I wouldn't put it past the odd dealer to use that if an aftermarket electronic device caused some sort of damage that they couldn't directly see.

The 558 is different - it has the iPod cable built-in and more camera support.

Think of the MyGig and the CHR550 - same features, the CHR550 had the intergrated iPod cable and side/additional cameras.

Finally got a response from my email to Coastal Tech. Here is my question:

Hello,

I was wondering what the difference between the C8 Lockpick v2 and the CHR550 v2 are? Specifically, since both are listed as compatible with the 2013 Ram. Also, are both currently available? Your web site really isn't all that helpful. If the C8 v2 is available why is the Add to Cart button disabled?

Here is the response:

The C8v2 is not available at this time. The CHR558 v2 is available and
includes all functionality of the C8v2 but also includes additional
A/V input/output options as well as full iPod integration for any
touch technology 30 pin Apple device. Thanks

So what would be the down side to getting the CHR558 over the c8v2?

It is more expensive.
