    So I purchased my son a 2017 Dodge Challenger RT as a birthday gift and I'm trying to upgrade the small screened radio to factory 8.4 Radio HD with Navigation and the dealer says it can't be done. So pissed I guess I will have to wait for someone to come up with a MOD to make it work.

    Yeah that's aggravating. The new ones have the option of mirroring your phone to the screen and I don't think theres a software upgrade for the 15 16 models which I don't see why it cant be done

    You can get leather seats in Ram Bighorn 1500s but not 2500s. Hmm. Wait, what? Because I want to upgrade the payload and motor, I cant get leather? LOL.

    Should be if you want it, you can have it.

    Up graded mine after dealer said couldn't do.
    Ordered radio and satellite antenna.
    Installed myself.
    Also got OBD Genie and added performance pages from same link below.

    If you get the unit without nav, it will still be able to run google maps, waze, or what ever apples maps system it. When it mirrors the phone, Those are some of the options it gives you. Also being its for you kid, it also locks the phone so they will not have the need to look at it. Best set up imho, just because I love using Waze map for the most accurate traffic conditions.

    I have received and installed the 8.4 gps radio, next I am mounting the gps antenna as time allows. I did activate the camera and tested it with the obd plug from infotainment. Everything works Great but very pricey but very happy. Well my son is LOL :)
