2009 challenger evic and Uconnect

Post by 09hemichallenger » Tue Jan 24, 2017 6:06 pm

I have the 8200 nex with the maestro rr and corresponding harness for the stereo. Uconnect function does not work. programmed it multiple times with no joy. The Evic display works sort of. It shows Sirius, aux and Bluetooth audio. No hd audio or am fm.. shown. No turn by turn shown. Just stays on the source. If I go to the OEM setting the uconnect is greyed out.

If the UConnect is grayed out that is an indication that the MRR is not able to communicate with Uconnect or not able to communicate with the aftermarket radio. The most common issue we see is the wrong trim level selected during flashing of the MRR. Some of the OEM radios have Uconnect built-in and some are a separate module. If the OEM Radio had the Uconnect built in we are not able to retain it, and that feature would be grayed out. the Trim of the OEM radio is the three letter code on the face. this is found on the lower two corners. If it is an RES radio then attention would be given to the presence of a phone button or not.

The Evic Display is populated with information that we receive from the aftermarket radio. The Pioneer radio does not supply us with navigation information and is limited on what it supplies with Media information.

Now I ordered this by the information that was posted on the idatalink conpbility. It states navigation, and uconnect were compatible. I never once saw that it would not work. Why would it state for a pioneer radio this nav outputs would work in the evic display and the uconnect would be retained.

Uconnect retention is a possibility.
What is the three letter Code on your OEM radio? (usually found in the lower corners) RES, REH, etc.. there are many different ones. If the OEM radio is an "RES" model, to identify if a phone button is present on the radio face. This information will identify if the vehicle will still have a Uconnect in the vehicle after removing the radio. Vehicles that have a Uconnect module that stays in the vehicle we can retain the use of the Uconnect system.

Navigation Guidance -
We do support the Evic Navigation display. However the pioneer radio Doesnt provide the Navigational information for the MRR to display it. Also on another note, neither Carplay or Android Auto pass navigational information for us to display.

I see the website information has now changed to not include the evic nav display. Why would it suddenly change after I bring this up? I purchased this unit and the 8200 nex because it was supposed to work almost like factory. I have been misled by idatalink. Is this standard business practice? was it ever even tested to confirm before it was stated to provide this information. I am really upset about this. were talking a lot of money wasted from bad information on your website that is now changed.
