    Upgrading from 3.0 to 8.4 Nav

    I just bought a Steering wheel with the audio controls built in and will get that installed after I get an 8.4 Navigation and a new bezel with volume control, installed. My question is, currently I have a uConnect 3.0 with the back up camera in the mirror, how do I tie into the camera feed for the 8.4? I have heard that the wiring harness for this is off to the right side of the dash and the wire running to the mirror is in the right "A" pillar. What cable do I need to hook the 8.4 up to the harness? And where can I get it? Any help is appreciated!

    How do you upgrade? can you buy the new center stack with the 8.4 screen to replace the 3.0 or 5 " and is it just a plug in and reprogram ?

    The upgrade depends on how many speeds your hvac fan has. A 7 speed fan upgrade is the easiest. You need a custom made wiring harness, an hvac module, a single zone hvac bezel and an ra3 or ra4 radio. from there installation is plug and play and takes about 1/2 hour.

    Ended up buying an 8.4 NA and a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls off of Ebay. Bought a bezel from OEM Auto Parts. I'm having a local shop do the install stuff tomorrow as I really didn't want to mess with the air bags and they can get the backup camera hooked up to the 8.4 so I'm not stuck with just the camera in the mirror. When I do get the necessary AC cable I'll go that route and just sell the bezel from OEM Auto. But the main things I'm missing from my '14 EcoDiesel Big Horn are the steering wheel audio controls and the backup camera in the 8.4" display.
