I have a 2012 JKU with the very basic 130 radio, that is, no Sirius, no bluetooth, no connectivity group. Been thinking about getting a 430n, primarily for the music hard drive and occasional Navi use. I've read that this is a Plug n Play install. But in my situation, wouldn't I also require the installation of some kind of GPS antenna? Definitely don't need Sirius -- have it as an app on my iPhone and an Internet subscription, so can just plug that in through the front panel AUX. Dont care about bluetooth or upgrading to the aftermarket connectivity package if i don't have to. Any advice appreciated.

Yeah, you'd need the antenna. The stock one is for both Sirius and GPS though, so really doesn't matter if you don't need it LoL.

I have the Alpine Media Center 430N (RHB) CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV radio with 6.5” touch screen, 30GB hard drive (apx 6,700 song capacity), Album Artwork, AudioJack, Garmin Navigation, optional SIRIUS Satellite Radio.Media Center 430N (RHB)CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV radio with 6.5" touch screen, 30GB hard drive (4,250 song capacity), Album Artwork, SIRIUS Satellite Radio and Audio Jack, Garmin Navigation (N/A Voice Command), SIRIUS Travel Link. ...Also the 7 speaker system
4- 6.5" speakers / 1-Dual voice coil 8" subwoofer / 2 tweeters. The complete system is immaculate and only 2 months old. Just bought a 2013 rubicon and traded my 2011 rubicon. I had an aftermarket stereo for my old jeep which was worth $6000.00 so I kept it and replace the 430n my new jeep came with. It is for sale if you are interested. If you were to order it from jeep...unit and speakers...price approaches $4000.00 (check for yourself) I am asking $1500.00 or best reasonable offer.
