New to the forum... got a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited... I have the plain jane 130 radio unit and want the 730n RHR upgrade without paying JEEP $2500.
My question is can I take the 130 out... plug and play the 730n RHR without having to buy another harness?

Doctorsti, i highly recommend getting the usb extension cable before you start. You will need it to complete the install. follow the wiring steps in this post and the remainder is truly plug and play. Make sure you get the secuity code with the radio you buy. I purchased my cable here:

|Doctorsti||I may need this tutorial as I'm likely going to embark on the 130n upgrade to the 730n and want to keep the mic i have from the connectivity package. Some seem to have said this swap is completely plug and play for 2013's but I have no idea what to believe yet.|

I did this today in half an hour and it worked perfect. A couple of things I came across, the extension cable for the USB is impossible to find. Get it of the internet before you open everything up. Also, On my 2013 harness, I had 2 green/yellow wires. i used a multi-meter to find the one that was common with the original microphone green/yellow, then used the other one. Again, Ndrugby you are a genius.

|pwecr||Not sure what to do with it now.|

|sircody||Cool, yeah those are LockPick harnesses...|
|12-15-2012 08:19 PM|
|pwecr||I think your right.|
|12-15-2012 07:44 PM|
|sircody||Yeah lockPick is great to have. So you mean Harnesses that would be in the vehicle if those options were already installed, say like rear Video etc. Those harnesses would connect to the extra devices if you added them.You can find the extras on ebay from sellers of wrecked vehicles etc...most of which usually have to be programed to work, as the Lock Pick lets you add non Factory and design your setup more freely...|
|12-15-2012 07:20 PM|
|pwecr||No lockpick. Just additional harness. I thought it was weird too. Wish I had a LockPick.|
|12-15-2012 07:09 PM|
|sircody||LockPick came with it?|
|12-15-2012 06:17 PM|
|pwecr||Mine is a 730n RHR. I bought mine used on eBay and it came with an extra harness for cameras and additional audio and video inputs. I am not using them at the moment. May add a camera later though.|

|pwecr||My RHR only had one open mini usb port on the back by the way. Not 2 as in the picture above.|
|12-15-2012 04:23 PM|
|jwilson2598||Sorry to hijack, but I didn't realize my RHR had 2 USB jacks. Can you add a second cable to it for another USB jack? That would make 3 total on it.|
|12-15-2012 01:38 PM|
|pwecr||Just finished this today. It worked awesome. I have all the functionality I had before with the mic and I just need to buy the USB extender on the web somewhere. Ndrugby you are a genius. For anyone else who may do this, it's not that hard.|

|sircody||1/4" hole between the right side of the speedo, between the Radio and speedo, The center Dash with Radio and HVAC area comes out further then the left or right side of Dash area so that blocks the wind from blowing into the mic.|
|11-20-2012 06:58 PM|
Where did you put the mic? Do you have a picture of it?
|11-20-2012 06:32 PM|
RHR has 2 usb in back and one on the face plate
these usb are the mini usb that takes the male ...they are female

The Antennas are calibrated to be in a certain position and since the new one is combine it makes it more sensitive to placement.
The GPS/Sat antenna is pretty simple to get to, it's on top of the metal roll bar over the passenger's seat under the roll bar zipper covers.
If anybody wants to know where a Microphone picks up best and install can be a flush install with about a 1/4" hole or less.
First place i installed it, drove interstate doing 80, top off, doors off and Music cranked.....she heard me first time no problem.....
Oh yeah.....I have a deep country accent and she still heard perfectly....LOL

|blackbelt||Can you treasure s pic of where the usb plugs into the 730n? I have been looking around at pics of the 730n and don't see it anywhere.|
|11-20-2012 08:07 AM|
Thanks for the Great write up and pictures ndrugby. This is great information and I'm sure it will be valueable to others.
|11-19-2012 10:08 PM|
|blackbelt||Thank you. I was about to upgrade and ask the questions you just answered.|
|11-19-2012 09:12 PM|
I did the same and installed the 730 to replace my 130. Mine though didn't have Uconnect installed previously so good thing it has it built into the HU.
I have to install the mic though still so maybe I will post in here after I do that.
As for the Satellite i had to purchase the antenna and install it.
Now the proper installation from factory is into the roll bar in the center. No chance I was going to all of that trouble so I installed it into the dash right at the front and behind the HU.
