We're still working on it. Question for you: What was the 3-letter radio code from your OEM deck? There are several build types of this radio, so we just want to have as much info as possible.

Thanks,

Dara,
I sold the OEM radio when I purchased the Kenwood. The only information I can find on the OEM stereo is that is was a Uconnect® 730N CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV. Is the what you were looking for or something else?

On the face of the radio, there is a 3 letter code that starts with "R" on the face of your radio (Ex: RER, RHB, RES, etc.).

Dara,
I do not have any photos to verify for sure which OEM Unconnect 730n was in the 2015 jeep,wrangler unlimited rubicon hard rock. Best I can find researching on the Internet is that RHR is what it would be. Here is the best confirmation I could find. http://www.driveuconnect.com/system/201 ... ch730nrhr/
For that year any type, that is the only option that is available.
Thank you for working on this.
Richard

Did you get rid of the OEM radio? We want to be as certain as we can so the engineers aren't "spinning their wheels", so to speak. Thanks for the feedback.

Yes. I had the system removed and upgraded to the Kenwood now the DNN992. I had that all done as part of the purchase of the jeep from the beginning.

No updates at this time. We've been looking for a vehicle that matches this exact trim to perform testing, and it's hard to come by.

No. We found a compatible radio to test, but it is being shipped from the US to Canadian office...This can take some time. We are working on it, though.
