Hello,

I have a 2012 Chryler 300 S with a Uconnect 8.4 module.
I'd like to upgrade to Uconnect 8.4N (RB5) in order to have navigation (GPS).

I'm going to remove the old and install this new following module : oemautopartsco.com/products/2011-2014-chrysler-300-gps-navigation-rb5-8-4n-radio]2011-2014 Chrysler 300 GPS Navigation RB5 8.4N Radio

I have the installation guide.
Can I change it myself ? Are there any contraints ?

Not sure, but you may have to install a different antenna...one that receives the gps signals.

In fact, the vendor said me that my existing satellite antenna is already the GPS antenna and I just have to replace the Uconnect module to enable it.
" Every vehicle with a satellite antenna starting in 2011, already have a GPS signal "

What do you think of that ?

Then you need a GPS module to connect the antenna to unless the antenna already has one. The antenna connections would be the same at the head unit.

If your car receives satellite radio reception (Sirius/XM), you ONLY need the silver box (RB5 head unit) and you are good to go.

Very easy swap. I did this to my 2011 300 a couple years ago. If you need further assistance let me know, I can walk you through any of it.

Definitely ouch. You can get them a lot cheaper from car-parts.com. Yeah it'll be used, but it'll work just fine!

In fact I ordered mine used for my 2011 and it was like $400. Sold my old RE2 for more than what I paid for the RB5.

It's great !

Yes, I can receive the satellite radio (Sirius/XM) with my Antenna but I don't pay the subcription :)
So, I going to replace the Uconnect 8.4 by Uconnect 8.4N (RB5) for GPS.

Hi guys a little off topic but how can I tell which Uconnect I have, it is factory in my 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 but I don't see anything about Sirius/XM stuff?

Cheers
