OEM UConnect Aftermarket Add On Is Possible

I did a lot of searching here to no avail regarding adding the factory OEM UConnect. I remember seeing that someone wanted to add the OEM system aftermarket and think he gave up after being told it wasn't possible. For some reason I can't find the thread. There's tons of UConnect threads dealing with a variety of issues, but none with what I was looking for.

There is someone (technoteacher) who has successfully done this along with the OEM Nav on the MyLXInfo forums. He lists part numbers and prices as well. I know there are some who would like to do this rather than install the aftermarket UConnect.

I looked at a car without the UConnect option and asked about the factory installed option (not the after market version). The answer after alot of prying was that the wiring harness for the factory version of the Uconnect is different, which is why it is not offerred as a dealer installed option or an aftermarket alternative.

Why don't you PM the person who installed it:

Unfortunately there are two forms of Uconnect. One is a box that fits into the car, which I believe the above link is referring to, the other is the one that is built into the rear view mirror (the factory installed version). I was offerred a car without Uconnect and the dealer offerred to install the aftermarket box which I did not want. They explained that there is a wiring harness difference, which they found out from Chrysler. Ultimately, I did not take the car. Seeing that the information was from Wyckoff Chrysler, I assume that they would have found a way to install the factory version of Uconnect if it was possible.
