Magnum Audio/Entertainment Questions



  • Can I add a Mopar multi disc CD player to the single disk player that came with my Magnum? Thanks for the help.
  • Hello,
    I just purchased a 2005 Magnum. On the drive home from the dealer on the 1st day noticed the radio was not sounding clear & fading in & out, thought maybe the channel was faint that day, so I hit scan...all I got was that single station & that was not clear...I tried manually tuning to channels I have listened to for yrs, nothing came in...I called the salesman, he asked I drive it back, when I got there the service advisor I always deal with came out to look at the radio...he started the car ,channels came in fine...He said it must have been something I did wrong as it was 100%...I got in & it seemed to have fixed itself.
    Later that evening I went out to show my Mom my car & would'nt ya know it the radio was out again. I also wanted to explaing the u-connect feature , but it wasnt working either...
    I went to the dealer the next morning, showed the service advisor what it was doing, he agreed something was wrong as it would just keep scanning & scanning & manually tuning was no good I sat there from 7:45( when the Mechanics are just showing up to start their shifts at 8AM) 11:15
    Service advisor told me the car was not finished & he would need to get me into a rental.
    The next morning( today) service advisor called me, advised the car was done & to come on down to pick it up...when I got there he asked I go see the cashier to pick up the keys & to sign out...When I got into the car radio worked fine, Satellite worked fine, cd's played fine...I'm thinking to myself all right, wow I'm ok now....
    got home, got ready for work & then off I headed....guess what, radio wouldnt pull in but 3 channels & they were full of static...I called the dealer, got ahold of my service guy, explained it to him...he said they replaced the module for the u-connect, then looked at the radio & there was no problem with it tuning in dozens of it dint get replaced. He asked I bring it in again on Saterday...will post the finding on Saterday

    I want to use my mp3 player in my new 2005 Magnum RT. I tried using my son's iRock! FM transmitter, but there is way too much static. I suspect its because the antenna is built into the rear window and the unit is too weak to transmit that far. I also tried purchasing two different connecting cassettes, but the sound quality was poor. Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Does the '05 have the mp3 reader cd player? My '06 does, so you just make a cd of mp3's and it reads and plays it. Not sure if yours is the same.

    Yes, it does read mp3 files on a CD. But I can't get my 800 tunes loaded onto six CD's...

    Some of the players also support WMA files (says it on the radio). From what I understand, WMA offers better sound quality/file size ratio meaning you can fit more on a disk and it will sound the same as your curent mp3 bitrates. Might get you closer to getting your 800 on 6 discs.
  • Hey does any 1 have a website they can reccomend to purchase a navigation system for the SXT AWD ? :)
  • I put a Sony deck capable of mp3 in my truck 4 years ago and I can easily put 200-225 songs per CD. All of my mp3's are ripped at 196 so they aren't terribly small.

    You should be more than able to fit 1100-1200 mp3's in your changer.
  • Hi everyone, I just purchased a 2006 Magnum R/T used with 3000 miles on it. I've really been enjoying the car a lot :) , but I'm a little sad that it doesn't have the trip-meter/gas mileage computing thing that comes with one of the convenience packages (anyone know which one that was?). I also was interested to read about the bluetooth communication option. I've used this in a couple of other cars and found it to be really cool.

    I guess I'm wondering, if anyone knows, can either of these options be added after the fact, or are you pretty much stuck with whatever you got? I have the single-CD player with the AUX plug-in jack. My dash has the single trip-meter/odometer combo, but nothing else.
