They're already doing that with the Sirius radios. It's the same 'model' radio as the non-Sirius radio with different buttons and functionality. In that case though I'm sure the deal they have worked out with Sirius covers the additional expense. It's still odd that some features warrant a radio with differently marked buttons, while others don't. Especially considering that any supported aftermarket equipment cannot make use of the additional buttons in any way.so they wont have to make two of each radio
I hope that you're right about that because I cannot envision cutting a hole in my dash just to have the same thing installed that you'd thought would have been included.I was at the dealer this morning. They said the Uconnect module will work with any of the radios that have the Uconnect buttons on them. Their expecting the module to be released before too long but didn't have a date. Cost is expected to be around $375 - $400.
