Is there any way to check without pulling it out? Because I'm not even sure.
The seller informed me that it was a 2009-model.
As it is, it works great and I've got no complaints, but the Jeep logos would be nice. From the reading I've been doing, it looks like newer models will automatically switch and older models need the PCM flash?

|cringer||That is really old. What is the part number?|
|12-10-2013 07:07 PM|
Is my system info screen.
Everything works, I just want the Jeep logos and to know if any firmware past 10.00.11 will work.

The one I got changed over about 3 seconds after I turned it on.
It was manufactured Feb 2012

I got my RBZ in last night. Installed a satellite antenna (For some reason it wouldn't work from the factory location. Had to install it on the windshield frame) and XM fired right up and started working great. Thanks HELLBENDER!
My question is, how long does it take to switch to the Jeep logos? I've heard several different answers.
1) It takes a few power cycles and automatically switches.
2) It has to be dealer-flashed so the JK doesn't think it's in 130-mode anymore.
3) It takes as many as 20 power cycles.
Which is it? Lol. I don't mind the Chrysler logos so much but I'd really like the Jeep logos and interface.
I believe HELLBENDER said that his RBZ was a pull from a 2009. What's the latest firmware it can use? It's got 10.XX.XX currently.

I finally pulled the trigger...
I upgraded to the RBZ (P05091201AD) a couple of days ago... This is an awesome upgrade.
To anyone on the fence about this... DO IT!!!!
As a bonus the radio I got was manufactured the same month and year as my Jeep

|wrix||I think that port only allows uploading of music and photos to the hard drive. I have the arm rest USB port and that allows iPod playback. You should be able to use Bluetooth to stream music if you have the connection package.|

|bouche03||Well, I decided to attempt this install today in the freezing cold Thanksgiving air. A couple points I wanted to mention. First of all, thanks to all the people on this (and another forum) which proved to be an invaluable resource-so thank you all. Due to all the info, it was a breeze. Second, I battled a little with the window switches, but finally decided to follow a tip I found online-I used a plastic iphone pry tool and pried from THE BOTTOM and it was a joke how little leverage/force it took to get the switches out. So rather than pull and yank on it with a lot of force like a did yesterday-to no avail-today I pried softly from the bottom and it came out nicely. The only other issue I had was those little white plastic clips that hold the dash panel on that either break or fall off and get lost in the nether world of the dash, LOL. I will be ordering some to replace the few that I lost. But again, thanks guys. This forum is a terrific resource! Nick|

|bouche03||fiveofun, how did you find the install? as easy as reported?|
|11-27-2013 01:15 AM|
When using the HDD, it will continue to play and stay on random at startup. When using the USB, the RBZ will not continue to play or keep random just like the 130 I had.
In general I love this thing, but there are a few things that the 130 has over the RBZ, though they are minor. 1, it is not nearly as easy to select random as it is on the 130. 2, I couldn't find a way to display the clock when the JK is off. On the 130, there is a time button you can press that will display the time.

Thank you sir! I have contacted another member who seems to have expertise with this exact mod

|bouche03||Panther, I have a few questions I was hoping you could help me answer. I want to add the bluetooth module to my Jeep and as I mentioned earlier, I scored an RBZ 430 with a date code of May 11 2013. Now, that said, I have been searching online for the right bluetooth module to add to this to allow me to use the steering controls and stream audio from my phone. The part I have come up with is #82212159. I'd like to add the USB interface, part number #82212936AB. The question is, I have found listings on ebay, that indicate that some modules are not capable of streaming audio. Is this true?|

|wrix||Just wanted to say that Brett0712 is the real deal. Thanks for hooking me up! Now, if anyone wants my green buttoned RBZ with 4 weeks of Sirius left on it, check out the classified section.|

|bouche03||thanks Panther! I just snagged a like new one on ebay for $360 shipped. May 11, 2013 laser date, 509 part number. Pretty happy about it. Should take delivery of my new JKU next week hopefully.|

|bouche03||Are there any trim panels that I will need when swapping out from a 130 unit?|
|11-21-2013 05:13 PM|
|Ricanbandit||Well, add me to this boat. Looking for a good deal on ebay as I type this!|
|11-21-2013 05:05 PM|
I have a 2010 rbz in my 2013 Wrangler and it has the combined GPS/Sirius plug.
But yeah....most dealers are clueless and just want an upsell.
|11-21-2013 04:19 PM|
Just make sure its a High speed with side mount holes like eggers mentioned and you will be fine.
|11-21-2013 04:04 PM|
|bouche03||Yeah, no kidding. I knew the about the mounting holes, high speed and antenna. They did quote me on the 730 which I don't want, at just around 2000k installed...no thanks!|

|bouche03||I've read through every page of this thread-and I just had a question that I was hoping one of our resident experts could answer for me with 100% certainty. I will be taking delivery of a 2014 JKU and I want to slide in a 430RBZ. Dealer has just told me that Chrysler told them that the older radios WILL NOT work with the 2014 JK's. Everything I've read is in contrary to what the dealer has told me...any firsthand experience?|
|11-20-2013 10:41 PM|
|panthermark||Now that my 1 year of free Sirius has ended, I may sell mine and find a newer version (I waited a year because I fought like heck to get my subscription switched over). It just depends on how lazy I am. Maybe I can luck up and grab a 430rbz out of a 2014 Sport.|
|11-20-2013 06:03 PM|
Got my replacement 430 today from OEMAutoParts. I can't say enough good about these guys, they are the real deal. The first radio they sent me was from a 2010 Chrysler, the logo never changed over and the software was older than dirt. I contacted them, they immediately issued me an RMA and said they'd send me a newer model.
The one I got today was from 2011, and everything worked like a charm, latest software (50.xxxx) , started out saying Dodge and then switched to Jeep without me even turning the vehicle off and back on again.
Their customer service is awesome, and I'd totally deal with them again.

Sorry for trying to pass along a savings. I don't understand why people are so quick to find the negative in everything.
