DallasJKU So the seller got back to me and said he has sold 7-8 of these units without the codes and everyone of them the buyer took to dealer and they unlocked the 430 for them. Does this sound right??

Would the buttons be blue if it was a 509 from a '13 Rubicon??

I sent him an email. We will see what happens. They have a 100% rating and lots of sales so I feel confident he will take care of it. Wouldn't it have green lights if it came from a '13 a Rubicon??

I paid $315 on eBay. I just wanted a stock system that had touchscreen and backup camera option for later. I only read first two pages of this thread so hopefully I chose the correct one that is plug and play.

According to seller he stated the following:
"It slides in and mounts from the front with screws. The wires connect in the rear. The Model # is P05064678AF"

Thanks!
From the link, it stated it was from a 2010 Van and High speed. It would work, but it's the older version, so the splash screen will stay Chrysler. It can NOT be updated to where newer models are at now. Look for a 2011+.

2012 + will need a lock code, so make sure you can get that.

Rammer500 The 2011 model year 506, from what I can tell is the same as the newer 509's other than the anti-theft and has green back lighting rather than blue. Some 509's are still green but, most are blue. The 2010 and back will not switch the splash screen (Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler)as determined by the VIN number. 2012's+ (all 509's) will need the lock code from the seller to use. Look at the label on the unit for the build date.
11-21-2014 02:13 AM
movi3king I thank you both.
Can you just break down how to read the break down of the numbers to read the build?

Also what are the key differences between what a 506 and 509 will do?

Thank you.

Rammer500 This is the part number I put in my 2014. P05064879AH
It's a 2011 model year RBZ. Made in April 2011.
The back lights are green, has sirius, does not have antitheft so no need for a lock code, updates to Jeep slash screen when installed, and can be updated to 50.xx like the P0509 models .
11-20-2014 11:55 AM
wrix You want High speed with the mount brackets on the sides not the top. Green backlighting is harder to find as they were more popular in older Caravans and Ram trucks (blue) and only in a few jeeps (Green). Forget the number sequence but i think the 506 are old and the 509 are new. I got a blue light up version as they are easier to find and it doesn't bother me at all. Older versions don't have Autotheft but that's up to you if it matters. It will say on the screen whether it supports Sirius or Autotheft. Newer models auto update to say Jeep on splash screen. Older models require a flash to update from what ever vehicle they were pulled from. And yes, on all versions, the screen darkens when park or head lights are on.

movi3king Hey guys so i have been reading up and think i may be ready to do the uconnect swap in my 2 day old 2015 Freedom Edition (equipped with uconnect).

If someone can please just run by my what to look for when purchasing a mygig 430 unit i would appreciate it.
I know some year models are better then others but im a little confused as to which ones to look for and how to know what im looking for... I would like one that can be updated etc and nav is not needed.

Just another question: I do a lot of night driving and i am wondering if the display on the 430 units dims out at night.

All help is appreciated.

You also need one of these:

as well as one of these:

I mounted it in the notch where the receiver hitch would reside (if I had a receiver hitch). Not sure if this is smart, though. Could be a bit too exposed. I don't off-road, so might be okay for me.

MaxMax256 So if I have a 2008 Wrangler Sport that has a 730N RER MyGig Radio, Can I pull it out and install it in my 2011 Wrangler Sport?

Best regards,

Thanks, that's what I thought. I bought a 2009 model 430 RBZ and have an appointment with the dealer Tuesday morning to have the system flashed for backup camera. I think I may sell this one and buy a newer model 430 so I can get the "Jeep" start-up screen and update to the newer graphics. I really didn't want to have to go back to the dealer a second time.

Ueah. Me 2. The black gold better imo. The blue was too distracting at night.
