Is it a case if it working and them not getting around to testing it? Is it an incompatibility with the radio itself, or did Jeep change stuff with the internal BUS on the Jeep that would cause issues?

Not sure about the V3, but Hychenj has installed a CHRY550 in his 2013 and I have the V5 in my 2013 working with no issues. I'm guessing they just haven't tested one officially to confirm compatibility, but from our experiences it seems they work fine.

There are compatibility issues with the 2012s with manual transmissions. The CHR550 and v.5 works fine with 2012 models with the automatic transmissions. Unless you install it wrong, or bend a pin, or the unit fails, or the security code gremlin gets ya, or the head unit won't turn on <sarcasm over>.

I'm assuming this holds true for the 2013 models.

No problems at all with the chr550 and an automatic in the 2013 with the 730n.

I installed a lockpick v.4 about a year ago and today I got the blank screen no radio. Radio won't turn on, nothing works. No blown fuses. Looks like I'm going to open up the dash tomorrow and see if any connectors came loose. Wish me luck.

Well, sure enough, the connectors came loose. This time there in good. What a relief.

I have a version 3 lockpick and am trying to figure out if this will fit on my 2013 Sahara. I had a 2010 Sahara which it worked fine on my 730N. I have a 2013 730N now and I don't want to take the dash apart to find out that this doesn't work.

Is the version 3 worth upgrading? I think it has a USB port on it. I bought it two years ago. TIA.
I bought a lockpick v4 in 2011 for my 2011 Sahara. Paid around $460. Probably too much. Worked great. Traded Sahara in for a 2013 Sahara. Lockpick v4 is not compatible with 2013 even though dealer said it would be. Bummer. Until I can sell lockpick v4 I won't get the v5 but miss the back up camera.

For what its worth, I emailed Coastal Tech support to see if the V5 is compatible with the 2013 as I just ordered a 2013 JKU Sahara with 730N NAV/Radio. Below is their response.

"... Great! Thank you for the information. Both the MyGIG LockPick and CHR550 LockPicks are both fantastic products and are both completely compatible with your vehicle.

The MyGIG LockPick v.5 will simply unlock Nav in motion, video in motion, as well as factory camera on demand. The MyGIG LockPick v.5 also includes A/V inputs, A/V outputs (of the factory DVD signal), as well as an Aux video input for the installation of a rear view camera..."

It's been a while for me, but on my 2009 Grand Cherokee I added the NavTV. I can attest that their customer service and their sales are top notch. I did a lot of research at that time and NavTV worked like it was OEM where the LockPick required some special knob push or another initiating sequence. This may have changed since then.

I did have an issue with the AllGig on my 2009 GC. I worked with the tech directly and got new code to update the AllGig via USB several times. The issue was never resolved over a few weeks. I lived with it for a while then pulled it. The issue was that the dash lights would all go on for a second (like you started the car) while driving. Nothing lost power or went wrong. As I understand it, this happens when the the AllGig get a signal that it does not recognize. The main function on the AllGig is to intercept the CANBUS and re-interpret specific requests, such as park, to enable video in motion. I did not have any additional electronics added to the CANBUS. They were never able to identify the signal that threw the error. That said, I still like the way AllGig worked over LockPick. It was plug-and-play.

I have not researched them since.
