Non DaimlerChrysler autos

The RB1 will be tailored to work on many various non-DCX autos, most likely about any considerably fashionable car which you can make the RB1 bodily slot in to.

RB1 Navigation kits and elements:

About half numbers: Model codes and half numbers for radios and discs will be fairly complicated. A 3-digit “gross sales” code is assigned for every radio in a selected sequence. Within that mannequin code, “RB1” for instance, many various half numbers are assigned through the manufacturing run and gross sales life. Most half numbers begin out with a sequence of numbers, reminiscent of “82208715”. Revisions after that add a 2-letter suffix, as in “82208715AA” adopted later by “AB”, “AC” “AD” and so forth. Revisions can include circuitry updates or adjustments, firmware fixes and adjustments, and minor beauty adjustments. In addition, typically altering a provider for a selected half will end in a up to date half quantity. In most circumstances the upper the final letter of the half quantity the newer the half. A significant change in an element will usually end in a very new half quantity.

Interchangeability: From what we have now seen, the entire “RB1” radio half numbers beneath are interchangeable between most 2002-up Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep autos which have the PCI Bus system. The radio reconizes which car it’s in and can show the opening display brand accordingly for both “Dodge”, “Chrysler” or “Jeep”. In the 2005 mannequin yr Chrysler began switching over to the brand new Can-B bus system and the brand new 2nd era “REC” navigation radio.
