The Low Down on MYGIG's...

Posted by Austin Butler on

Tip:

If you are purchasing a 2007-2014 Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, or RAM 6.5" UCONNECT MYGIG Infotainment System from a third party, such as through eBay, ensure you are buying a radio system that matches your vehicles CAN-Bus. MyGIG radios run on two different Bus systems, a low-speed computer Bus system (CAN-B) and a high-speed computer Bus system (CAN-C). MyGIG radios designed for a high-speed electrical bus will not work on a vehicle with a low-speed bus, and vice versa.

MyGIG radios are manufactured by Harman Becker (HB) and Mitsubishi Electric (ME).

In 2009 HB added the "iPod integration" feature which allowed users to connect a Mopar iPod integration cable to the system to relay audio, control the iPod from the touch-screen display, and charge the iPod device simultaneously. In 2010 HB didn't make many changes to the main board, just firmware updates.
