Not sure when they will release it.

Currently the Maestro supports Ford Sync through 2012 Kenwood DNX models only.

Here's a promo video of it.

xsdbs Interesting, I would have to question being able to retain the factory SAT radio in the Chrysler vehivlcles. Unlike the Ford where the SAT radio is a separate module, The SAT radio is part of the Chrysler factory radio.

Does anyone know: is uConnect a separate module or part of the stock radio?

I'm thinking of swapping out the radio but don't want to lose the uConnect/Hands-free features.

Thanks.

There are aftermarket interfaces that will add the volume controls again, but not the voice menu.
Thanks. Looks like I'm in the hunt for a 430 instead. That should preserve the goodies.
