2008 Dodge Charger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ist let me say that ive been shopping with Crutchfield since 1993....ive purchased many items...most of which were perfect and met my expectations. A few times I needed to return an item and no questions or hassles ..(one of the great things about shopping at Crutchfield) The other great thing is the fantastic customer support !! By far the BEST in the industry bar none!! Ok now on to my review...I purchased this item along with a pioneer avh 2440 nex for my 2008 dodge charger srt8. Ive installed many head units over the decades so I was confident I could do it myself. Boy have things changed!! lol However this was a pretty straightforward install that was met with a few challenges. brought on by the lack of documentation provided by the manufacturer. The install instructions are a little on the vague side. Carefully study the wire diagram and be sure all of the colored connectors are hooked up properly. The issue I had was with the 3.5mm audio jack.....it plugs into the head unit AUX port......so you can retain Uconnect features.... That lil tidbit of info is not provided in the install diagram......I mistakenly plugged it in to the remote RAC jack ...Wrong!! lol After I got everything all buttoned up....the steering wheel radio controls and the head unit remote control would not function.... I swapped the plug to the Aux input and all is fine. Im very happy with this unit and it works seamlessly with my new Pioneer HU.
Pros: easy to flash online. retains a lot of factory features
Cons: Vague install instructions.....can be a lil difficult to find room for all the extra wiring behind the radio.
