it is required for the aftermarket radios (or you wont be able to connect your jeep's antenna to the radio without it). Just buy it off of ebay its cheap.

Lol my bad.. i saw that one was older than the other so i didn't know if you had moved sites.. and idk they model numbers for the harness and kit. the store just said they had them to fit on the 2010. and they didn't know if the 2011 were compatible. Do you know which model numbers are compatible? and for the antennae adapter as well?

well i did install the same radio in my 08 compass... so i'd say you will be fine with the wiring harness. I just looked at a photo of the dashboard of the the 2010 compass and they "look" exactly the same. So you SHOULD be fine with the 2010 dash kit too. I dont have a model number for the antenna adapter.

DOUBLE DIN RADIO INSTALL DASH KIT+WIRE HARNESS+ANTENNA | eBay

Would this do the trick? You can find all the model numbers on metraonline.com to compare.

i mounted mine in the factory location under the dash. Behind the radio above the air vents. It will work through the plastic and windshield. the factory antenna is mounted on a flat panel under the dash in the same area.

i slid my antenna between the two top air vents, it flattens out behind them youll feel the spot. If you have a DD radio youre going to have to cut the lower bracket out of the dash to fit the new radio. If y ou have the power package with a 110 inverter the inverter is under the radio. I slid my XM box to the left bhind the AC button area. if you take the plug off your stock sirius antenna (if you had sirius) you can use the same factory antenna for the XM, thats what i did. They are both mini BNC connectors.

once you get the lower bracket off you get lots of free wire room as well. youll see once y ou get in there.

Hi guys,

first I wanted to thank w4rh4wk for the pictures and nice descriptions.

Long story short. My father in law has a Jeep Compass ( It's a 2011 like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...-21-2012_1.JPG). He only has the standard CD-radio.
He lives in Canada by the way and I am from Germany. I am sorry in advance for any spelling or grammar mistakes .

I wanted to get at least a double - din (which fills both slots) Radio with color display, so that I can connect the third party rearview camera.

A.) Is there any radio with navigation below 200 CAD (incl. tax) available in Canada/US? I guess a european navi wouldn't work properly.

B.) If I dont't get a navi, do you know how hard it would be to install this?:
AUTORADIO MIT 18cm/7" 2DIN TOUCHSCREEN DVD/CD-PLAYER USB SD MP3 BLUETOOTH DOPPEL | eBay

It comes with an ISO connect cable. But I really don't know if I would need a radio wiring harness, and if so which one. Does anyone know, if I could connect the steering remote to the radio?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Christian



EDIT: I did some more research and found the metra-dash kit which w4rh4wk used.
D.) Why do I need this? Is the factory radio not the standard witdh or is w4rh4wk's pioneer not the standard width?

The links from w4rh4wk show only the amazon search results, but not a separate article.

E.) Would this antenna adapter work?

F.) I guess I would not nee an "Radio Replacement Interface" (part 3 mentioned in the original post), as the choosen radio does not have navigation etc.?!

Does anybody know how to remove the dashboard on a Compass 2012? Or at least how to remove the plastic cover right below the wind shield?

Thanks!
