2015 Jeep Renegade 5" Uconnect Stock Microphone

Post by savante21 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:30 pm

I'm looking to upgrade from the 5" Uconnect to a Pioneer MVH-2300 NEX and the Maestro unit.

I've been reading a lot of conflicting information on various forums from "first hand" installations regarding the Uconnect features supported.

Will the factory microphone be retained or will I need to wire a new mic?
Also, will the guidelines on the backup camera function the same way they do now (turning when the steering wheel turns)?

Thanks!

uConnect cannot be retained in this vehicle. Because of that, the OEM Microphone will no longer function, so you must use your new radio's microphone.

Pioneer radios do not support dynamic guidelines on the backup camera. The only radio brand that currently supports this is Kenwood.

Thanks Dara.

Do you know if the Kenwood DMX7705S or dmx905s support the dynamic guidelines on the backup camera?
I'm assuming they will both also require their respective microphones be installed.

Appreciate your help.
