2008 Caravan Radio - NEW

So with the introduction of the 2008 Caravan there is also a new Radio. This new Radio (REN) is basically the same as the MyGIG but is non-navigation. The unit looks identical to the MyGIG. I haven't seen details on the capacity of the hard drive but it lists having the ability to store 2500 songs - same as the MyGIG. Anyways, I did some searching and came up with some part numbers. I have yet to see if the electrical connectors are the same as in the Nitro, but what I did see are the same 22 and 10 way connectors. Also of interest is this unit is capable of using the factory back-up camera. So this may become another option for us Nitro owners. If I find out more info one was or the other I'll post it here. :smileup:

Part numbers that I've come up with so far are as follows:


And from what I've seen these units are significantly cheaper then the MyGIG. :smileup:

Waldorf.....your R/T has the MyGIG? If so, do you use the NAV much? If the NAV is something you don't need maybe once all the details are available on these new radios you can sell the MyGIG. Then buy the new REN with the back-up camera and wire it up. :smileup:
I don't know, I've yet to see the validity of NAV. Seem to me a like novelty, so far. Doesn't mean that won't change. :thk:
Yea, I've got a 10 minute drive to work. 140km one way!:eek: Yep a carputer is the way to go and then you can have all the toys. Waldorf, maybe that's your next project....ditch the MyGIG.:SHOCKED:
Finally installed!!

So, I finally put aside some time and installed the REN version of the MyGIG. The radio is true Plug and Play. The unit doesn't have the NAV and comes with a 30GB hard drive. Approximately 17GB available for music/picture files.

Nice factory upgrade for under $1000. :)
Hi NitroTech,

Is this radio plug and play with other MYGIG radios or all of the radios? I have the single disc/MP3/SAT and steering wheel controls radio in my Nitro. Will this new radio plug directly into my Nitro? Will I still get my SAT function? Does it play DVDs? I'm really liking this new radio because I don't want NAV, just space for my music, but want the MYGIG style of radio.

Any help will be great.

Yes it's direct plug and play. In my first post I have listed the radio part numbers with and without SAT (SDAR) radio. Mine doesn't have the steering controls but considering they are a function over the BUS it likely will still work. Hope this helps. :smileup:
