Thank you, sir. I try to share as much as I can to help others and it comes easy when car stereo is a passion hobby.

Stereo/GPS

Have a 2015 Patriot Sport 5spd. Looking to replace the radio with a new Stereo/GPS. Anyone with any experience with a reasonably easy swap. Would like rear back up and blue tooth also. Looking at the BOSS brand.
Thanks
Bob

I want to remove the current stereo on my 2015 Patriot and install a used stock one with Bluetooth, but will it be as simple as plugging in the connections? I want to be prepared if there will be additional hardware needed for the Bluetooth to function properly.

Hey Bob, Maybe I am misunderstanding your post, but you are looking for a decent recommendation for a replacement radio that has both bluetooth and a backup camera?

I would suggest stick with the big name brands (Pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood, JVC, Sony, etc.) for features and reliability. I would recommend stay away from BOSS brand as even tho it may be inexpensive, it's not exactly a brand known for reliability. You can get a backup camera, but you would need a screen to display it on. So either get a double-DIN sized radio that has a screen or look into other options for an auxiliary screen. Most aftermarket radios will have bluetooth connectivity these days, just have to mount the microphone.

In terms of "any experience with a reasonably easy swap", do you mean actually replacing it and the steps involved? check the first page to see step-by-step directions on how to swap the radio.

The actual swapping of the radio wouldn't be an issue and would just be a matter of plugging in the harnesses behind the radio. The issue for getting bluetooth to work would be the factory installed microphone and whether or not it is installed and has wiring in place for all the of the trim levels as opposed to the ones that come with the Uconnect radios from the factory.

If it does not have a microphone, then you would need to not only supply one yourself, but it would also need to interface with the factory radio plugs. This is something I am not familiar with doing and may require more research.

Stereo/GPS

Booly,
thanks for the reply. My Pat has a basic radio. I would like to replace it with a Stereo/GPS/Bluetooth/wireless back up camera. I don't know if Jeep uses a standard wire harness regardless of the radio or builds the harness to fit the options. You're right that the Boss system is inexpensive. Guess I'll do some more comparing.
Bob

Maybe I am just jaded when it comes to stereo brands, but if that Boss head unit has all the features you are looking for and fits in your budget, by all means, get it!

As for the wire harness, the Patriots have a slightly more complex way of integrating into the factory CANbus system and will require an interface adapter. Check the first page of this post for more information regarding possible options to make it all work. Due to this, installation may be a bit more expensive than a vehicle that does not require such things, so make sure you factor that into your overall budget.

I am not as familiar with wireless backup cameras, but I know there is a user here that has installed one themselves and seems to be happy. Make sure whatever head-unit you decide on has not only a screen but also a video input for a rear-camera. If your intent is to have your backup camera automatically turn on and be seen on your head-unit screen, you have to make sure that's how both the deck and camera operate and are compatible with each other.

Hope this helps. Let us know what you find and if it works for you.

stereo/gps

Booly
Again, thanks for the reply and info. I did a bunch of radio searching. stuff can get real pricey. The stock radio in the vehicle is nothing special and that is being real kind. I just want to integrate the radio and gps so that I dont't have a gps on the dash. I will do some more investigating the Boss unit to be sure it meets my needs.
Thanks again
Bob

Hey Booly,

Currently trying to hook up my new stereo to my Patriot and have no wiring harness/adapter. Iím looking to find out which wires coming out of my car connect with my radio wires. Iíve looked up various diagrams but canít seem to figure it out. Wires from the Patriot: Black/yellow -ground White/orange- can B bus + White/pink- can B bus - Red/light blue- fused B + (I.o.d) Grey/red- power antenna signal Wires from radio Yellow-battery 12v Red- acc 12v Blue- antenna Black- ground I know grounds go together but I am having trouble with the others. Any help in matching them up would be greatly appreciated!

So without a harness, Yellow from the radio goes to the I.O.D line, and Red from the radio connects to the lighter/12v acc plug.

I don't know what radio you have (sorry if I missed it), but if the 4 wires you mentioned are all the radio has, then I don't see where you would connect the canbus wires (white/or and white/pink).

What make and model is the radio?

Thanks Sandstone! Itís a Sound storm lab ddml65b. Those are the only 4 wires it has (apart from speaker wires). I just tried hooking it to the cig lighter. I managed to get some buzz from the speakers but nothing on the actual unit.
