I don't see ANY reason why you can't make this work..... someone please chime in and tell me I'm wrong......

I just spent 5 minutes looking at the service manual......

8W-55-3 and 8W55-4 show the wiring diagrams for the hands free. It looks as if the U-Connect consists of the mirror, and a hands free-module. The ONLY external connections that I see are for the CAN (easy to tap into), and 3 audio wires that connect to the radio. All you would need to connect the wires to the radio are the connecting pins, which should not be a big deal.

Pages 8W-80-68 and 8W-80-76 show the actual pinouts for the wiring harnesses.

http://dto.vftis.com/mopar/platform_select.asp (thanks fnkychkn at lxforums) shows that the wiring harness connectors are available for both the mirror and the module. Select 2005 LX for the vehicle.
The hands-free connector is showing P/N 05102402AA. The connector for the hands free module is P/N 05083221AA.

From there, it should be a matter of wiring everything up, and getting power to the modules. Maybe you have to enable the U-Connect on the CAN.... a simple procedure with StarScan IF it is even necessary.

I'm currently working on adding the auto A/C to my SRT8, which currently has the manual controls. My problem is that none of the connector kits are available for the numerous plugs that I need. Not a big deal, but just a little more work on my end. I'm just waiting on the arrival of the sun sensor before the project starts.

FWIW,

Huh??? Is this in addition to the Auto A/C that comes with the SRT-8? Whats the benefit of going beyond the stock unit?

The auto A/C in the MSRT8 is included in SRT option group I, which my car does not have. The RT that I had before had the auto A/C..... and it is a nice feature (which SHOULD be included in the SRT8), that I want to add.

Ok, back onto the Uconnect...what's the verdict? Did the dealer make this work?

I just helped set up my co-workers Uconnect (factory) in a New JeepGC Hemi, it's slick.

I'd add it, but only if I can get the factory equipment....maybe there's an LX somewhere out there resting in peace that's has a Uconnect I can purchase..

I had to check out the uconnect because I was choosing between cars that had one from the factory and others that had stuff I wanted but didn't have the Uconnect.

The add-on doesn't use the mirror. It's a little module that gets attached inside the car and has it's own speakers, the system doesn't mute the car's stereo when a call comes in, and it doesn't have the mic in the mirror, the little unit (looks to be about 2" x 3") has that in it too. From what I could tell it's not quite as cool as the factory one (which I ended up getting and love).

At least that's what I came up with.

curious to see how this turns out as well............it doesn't SEEM like adding the U-Connect mirror and integrating with a stock Nav unit should be that big a deal, but I could be wrong

You are wrong on the muting of the radio. It mutes on incoming and outgoing calls.

I have the after-market in my C.

Goes to show how much the dealers and Chrysler Cust Service people know.. thanks for the info.

Does it play through the speakers too or have its own?
