I’ve searched all over the web and can’t find anyone who has described being able to add DVD or other type of movie watching capability to the Uconnect 12 system. I’m not sure what the back of the unit looks like as far as what connections it has, but seems like you should be able to replace the factory CD player with a DVD player or otherwise connect an aftermarket video device. I have a 2019 limited with trailer package (which doesn’t have any camera except for the rear one) so there should be some available video inputs? Has anyone tried this? I’d like to be able to add some rear monitors for my kids for long trips and be able to take advantage of the surround sound of the system for movies. :cool:

I was curious about this. Usually i just hook a laptop up via bluetooth or aux cable. Wife and son will watch a movie on it and ill listen.

Or what i did when i went across country by myself, toss a movie on the laptop and put it on the passenger seat or floor so i can just listen to it. The day went by super fast when i did a fast and furious marathon.

I had jailbreak. Read the forums on the product. Check other sites not just Ram. You'll find tons of opinions. They'll ship FedEx and will arrive in like 5 days. It did what it claimed. It was tricky as hell to install. If your computer smart, you'll be able to figure it out. You'll get software emailed to you. You have to pull it load it to a thumb drive and it has a key that need the extention renamed. Read their site. Text them. They are I think sweds. Their dialog will sound rude.

Also when you return your truck for repair jailbreak wants you to in-install. There's some question about legal issues, programing nav on the move, watching movies while truck in motion. When Mopar upgrades the infotainment system, jailbreak checks it and then sends their own patch out. You send the VIN number to them they match your software to the VIN
