I have seen several of these touch screen radios on ebay and just wondered if they are a swap out as far as the unit goes. I am not worried about the nav stuff as I have a tom tom already, but having the touch screen and being able to load up songs and pics to it sound pretty great. any thoughts on this?

I put a REN (non-nav mygig) in the Avenger. It was a simple 5 minute job. I already had UConnect bluetooth from the factory, and it works beautifully with the REN. Although you don't need the UConnect bluetooth to install the REN.

Then I added the iPod integration cable. After that, I almost never use the HD on the mygig or the satellite radio.

Don't get exited over adding pics. You can add a whopping 8 pics.

That part is pretty cool... you put a cd in, and, although it takes a bit of time, it rips it and stores the songs on the HD. You never need that cd in the car again.
Say a friend has a new CD... just borrow it for a few minutes :D

The older ones (2008) have a 20 GB HD with about 15 GB to use. The 2009 and up have a 30 GB HD with, I think, 25 GB to use. That's about 1000 songs.
See more here http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/mygig/ that site is a little outdated.... they removed the "JukeBox" feature since it was confusing and useless :lol:

Yes it plays DVDs - in park, in only some states. I added the MyGiG Lockpick so passengers can watch while in drive. I also added their backup cam, and A/V input and output, so I can hook up the camcorder and playback on the mygig screen, and I could hook up a backseat monitor, but haven't and probably won't.

Yes it should work. Based on the part number it is for low speed CAN BUS vehicles. But despite the description, it won't have voice command unless your car already has Uconnect.

That's a good price if you can get it for that.

A couple good sites to learn about the mygig are wkjeeps.com and the unofficial mygig site

This guy sells far more mygigs. Priced a little higher, but he guarantees them for 45 days. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chry...deo?hash=item56353b6ff8&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245 That's who I bought mine from.

not too worried about voice command, I assume that is for the phone stuff anyway. dont do much talking on the phone when I drive. but the rest of it would be nice. going to keep my eyes open on this for a bit too see how they fair on ebay.

Muchos gracias for the help and info!!:thumbupleft:

Remove the shift bezel, pull up/off top half of console, remove 4screws in back of console and two in front, remove console. Now u can remove two screws on bottom of radio bezel, and pull it off.
