Android head unit will it work?

Post by nordicwagon » Mon Jun 11, 2018 12:25 pm

Hello all,

I have a 2017 Ram 2500 with the 8.4 Uconnect system.
The stock 8.4 Uconnect that cam with my truck does not have android auto or apple car play also it does not have nav.
But it does have climate controls via the touch screen.

Would the maestro idatalink box work with an android car stereo and my truck to make the on-screen climate controls to work?
If anyone has done this or know anything that would work please let me know.

Want to see if an android system would work as I do not want to use the “big 4” companies. (Ken wood, JVC, Alpine, Pioneer)

Thanks,

Marty

As shown on our website, only those radios are covered. If you tried to use any other radio, you will lose your climate control display and all of the factory settings that are accessible through your factory radio. This is why we do not support other radios with this truck.

To use our solution, you must use one of the radios with a green icon listed here:

Ok, would I be able to control the climate via the head unit
If it were a Pioneer, say the AVH2440NEX?

It is on the list of compatible radios, so yes.
