When I try and stick a dvd into my 6 disc changer the radio shows error and the number 1 button is always flashing. Please if anyone could help me out. thanks
al fuses are fine there 9is a power supply to screen roof mounted. once dvd's are inserted they dont seem to be spinning and the centre orange light on changer goes out, it will not respond to the remote either.
someone plz help
At around $350 it's not cheap. My opinion on the price is that I could purchase an entire stand-alone DVD player with a larger screen than what's on the MyGIG for less than 1/2 of what this FreeGIG costs.
They worked fine until I had to have the 6 CD changer replaced, then they quit working.
The dealer has no troubleshooting information on the system. DVD sound comes through the normal speakers just fine.
Is the signal to the cordless headsets transmitted from the video display unit?
Is there any additional hardware I need to get GPS? Am I only missing the software?
Any ideas on how much it would cost to get the Chrysler GPS put in? What are other options out there?
Thanks so much in advance!
On an update to this, there is a new product out now called MyGIG Lockpick. It costs less than the FreeGIG I previously mentioned and has more features. The Lockpick website (Google search) has a demo that shows how easy it is to install - takes around 3 minutes.
I'd said that I didn't think the MyGIG was worth it for the price. However, this Lockpick thing is so cool that I'm considering getting one. I am mainly interested in adding a backup camera and this makes it easy to view it through the MyGIG.
It does enable in-motion front seat video, in reference to your original question. I would guess though that no states permit this.
Are you looking to install the entire MyGIG unit? I know that the MyGIG was available for some second half 2007 model year vehicles. My 07 Sebring has MyGIG with nav.
If you are going to get install MyGIG be sure you get the correct version. Read the warning below that I saw on another forum. Check with your Chrysler service department to see which on you have.
Verify the correct MYGIG RER radio part number is being installed. There are 2 versions. One for the CAN B bus and the other that operates on the high speed interior CAN Bus as used in the KA (Nitro), KK(Liberty), JK(Wrangler)and RT(2008 Caravan) vehicles. Installing the incorrect version will take down the BUS
What a disappointment!!!!
I hate this crap. Somebody has to know something. I have a 2008 Jeep Liberty but the uconnect is the same on all Chrysler products. This is the one with the 7" touch screen display in the dash.
I don't know if it could lose the pairing for some other reason but that would be the first thing I would check.
How did you update your software?
On a Nitro forum there's a whole area devoted to talk on the MyGIG. One of the topics has to do with the MyGIG update. I believe it will only work if you have the nav option.
I'd post the link but the firewall here at work won't let me get access to the website. Try a Google search for something like mygig 9.561 update.
You have to download the update, then burn it to a DVD. If you follow the correct procedure on the website the update will install automatically when you insert it in your MyGIG. It takes around 20 minutes.
I also found an update to the Gracenotes database, if you're interested. People have been complaining about newer music CDs and the song titles not being recognized by MyGIG. It's an 854 MB download but it supposedly will fix that problem. It was still downloading when I left for work. I will update mine later tonight.
Again, try a Google search for mygig gracenote update. If you can't find it I'll try to help after I get home later.
Also, this was purchased as a used van, there wasn't a remote for the DVD - should there have been?
to turn the rear audio on
press 1 on the remote control on some of the radios the headphone icon the radio will be displayed for 15 seconds on the other radios channel A or channel B will be displayed
to use the headphones the rear audio must be on or the headphones will not operate
If you need the remote you might want to look on e-bay
Look for an VES remote that is the model you will need
look for an e-bayer with above a 700 score with 99% or better you you will get great service
Look for FACTORY PARTS there are knock-offs and aftermarkets on e-bay and you will need the FACTORY PARTS to get you headphones working
This solves my problem of watching tv and sat tv while driving, as well as the back up camera, but I really want the uconnect feature to work as well. Is there any way around having to buy a NAV radio unit in order to use the bluetooth function? The radio in my van has the buttons, shouldn't there be a way to unlock and use the feature? I know i'll have to add a microphone as well. Any help would be great.
They don't specify what it is called by Chrysler, but hopefully your dealer will be astute enough to know what it is (unfortunately not all of them keep up with the tech stuff enough).
A friend of mine has a T&C with MyGIG. He has the non-nav version but he does have UConnect with it.
I have the MyGIG with nav but I rarely use UConnect except to make a call.
I read on another forum where another owner was inquiring about UConnect. One day, he/she was sitting outside to pickup their child from school. While waiting, they pressed the UConnect button and said something into it. It responded. Apparently they'd had UConnect for several months and didn't know it. They said it wasn't part of the features listed on the sticker.
You might try that and see what happens before investing any money towards something you might already have. The microphone might at least be in the mirror already.
We still have warranty left on the van, so it was suggested that I have them take a look at it... and it just happens to be there today to get the A/C fixed under warranty - so they are also checking out the radio - I'll let you know what I find out!
I have a REN code radio, no navigation and no Uconnect and no plug in the glovebox. Is there something I'm not getting here, or is this supposed to be on Uconnect equipped models only?
seems to indicate the Bluetooth Uconnect kit is required.
Also, in the back we try to put on one station on AM or one on FM, or the same (both FM or AM) and we can't do it. Whenever we change it to Fm or AM the other person's screen changes to that to. Or whenever we change the station both have to listen to the same thing. How do we get separate channels (FM etc.) and separate stations?
Thanks in advance!!!
I know you don't have the MyGIG but the 25-pin connector sounds close to what they sell. They have pics on the websites of the harness and maybe you can determine from that if it's what you need. Email them for more info. From past experience I've gotten much faster response from the AllGIG website. I think the harnesses sell for around $50-70.
I'd post a link to them but my company firewall blocks me from getting there.
Is it possible to utilize the MP3 player capability, while my children are watching a movie with the wireless headphones in the back?
When I plug my MP3 player in the Aux jacks, located next to the changer, it automatically turns the movie off, and turns 'Aux' on---then the MP3 player comes through the speakers. The movie comes back on immediately after removing the Aux input jacks.
Can they be enjoyed at the same time, or am I stuck with Sirius while my kids watch a movie??
dvd and cassette player. The whole system has shut down. Radio/DVD everything. does anyone know where i can get a used system? Chrysler wants 1700.00 for a new one.
Only those with 2 year olds can relate i'm sure!
Try eBay. I've see some good deals listed there in the past. Examine the seller's feedback carefully before you buy.
Can I listen to radio/satellite radio in the front while my kids watch a dvd movie (or watch sat. tv) without the headphones?
I think I have read that the kids can watch a dvd on the second row screen wiht headphones on while we listen to radio in the front. How can this be done?
The kids can watch and listen to different things on their own tv's though. To do that you have to navigate into the VES area of the mygig, you then have the option to set what each tv user wants for their entertainment. For example, you can set the second row tv to sat tv, and set the third row tv to dvd. Your manual you received with the vehicle explains how to do this. Once you have set the video sources for each tv, you have two headsets that you can then set to each listeners position. One the side of the headphones select either 1 or 2, this corresponds with which row the watcher/listener is in.
