    Video Review & Installation

    Jake: Jake here with "American Trucks," and today we're taking a look at this Navos Full Screen OE-Style Radio Upgrade with Navigation for 2013 to 2018 RAM 1500s, with the four or eight-inch screen. Now, big screens are all the rage these days and if you're looking for a way to upgrade the infotainment or integrate some more features into your RAM, then this Navos unit is gonna be right up your alley. This is a large 10.4-inch display that's gonna upgrade not just the look, but also the functionality of your truck in a way that looks factory fresh. So, if you're on the hunt for a way to add navigation or streaming apps to your truck, and you're not necessarily a fan of aftermarket head units, this is also a perfect option for you. Not only does it look like original equipment, but it seamlessly integrates your infotainment and climate controls into one large display.Now, there are a few things to note right out of the gate, however. If you are using any type of aftermarket CAN bus or OBD2 modules, such as a tuner, a start/stop bypass, a code scanner, or etc., this unit is likely not compatible and will not work with them. It also does not support factory air-ride suspension. This will however fit your 2019 and up RAM 1500 classic model if you happen to have one of those. So, if your RAM 1500 came with that small four or eight-inch display and you're watching this, you're definitely looking for an upgrade. Going with an all-new OEM unit could get very expensive. So, aftermarket is the way to go here. And unlike most aftermarket solutions, this unit is gonna look right at home in your truck as it's designed to look just like an OEM setup. So, again, what we're looking at here is a large 10.4-inch vertical capacitive touchscreen.It is Android based and it runs their 8.1 Oreo operating system, which means that in addition to the built-in apps and capabilities that you've already got, you also have the option to run Android-supported apps such as Waze, Google Maps, or Spotify just to name a few. Of course, it also includes support for AM/FM radio and there's Bluetooth 5.0 lossless streaming as well. So, you've got lots of options when it comes to entertainment and music. The unit allows you to link your Apple or Android device via that Bluetooth connection too, so you can make calls while on the move, though it is worth noting here that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not supported. Helping to keep things up-to-date here is the built-in iGO Primo navigation system that has 2D and 3D models of roads nationwide, as well as topography and even 3D building views for many major U.S. cities.There are also over 17 million points of interest already built-in. So, you can just hop in the car, plug in an address and go. There is however a one-time $150 activation fee for that navigation application, just to make you aware. You're also gonna get some other cool features including the integration of the climate controls. I think that's probably one of the coolest parts. Since this unit is gonna take the place of your radio display and your HVAC controls in your truck, Navos found a way to integrate them here. So, when you power on the display, you're gonna see a row of icons down here at the bottom that are always present regardless of what screen or function you're using. One of them is labeled Climate and tapping that is gonna take you to a screen that allows you to adjust fan speed, temperature, etc., as well as other comfort features such as heated seats if your truck is so equipped.Now, if your truck also has a backup camera and/or parking sensors, those are retained too and they'll display right here on the unit. That camera is gonna give you a much better view of your surrounding since the screen is larger than the factory one. And if you want to add additional cameras, well, those are supported too. You also get 64 gigabytes of internal memory, four gigabytes of RAM, as well as HDMI, RCA, and two USB inputs. So, if you're planning on adding amplifiers, or subs, or some other type of stuff to your audio system, this unit has the capability to support all of it. And I really can't stress enough how nice this whole thing looks when it's installed. So many aftermarket head units stick out like a sore thumb, but that is not the case here. The bezel around the screen matches perfectly with the rest of the dash and it's meant to fit the ram.So, this wasn't something that was adaptive from another application. This makes it clear that it was specifically designed for these trucks. It's a really sleek-looking setup and if somebody got into your truck and they didn't know, they'd very likely assume that this was a factory unit. You even get a hard button for your hazard warning lights down here too. However, all of that said, we do need to talk about pricing and this is gonna run you about $1,400. And, well, yes, that is not exactly inexpensive, it does undercut quite a few of the other options out there for this generation of RAM, even the ones that are Uconnect upgrades or Uconnect retrofits. And if your truck came with that small display or again didn't have that updated Uconnect system to begin with, this is an excellent option for you, especially because of how good it looks once it's installed.Speaking of, how easy is this gonna be to install? Well, we're gonna rate this one a two outta three on our difficulty meter. It should take you around two hours to get it done. That's mostly because you're gonna have to remove not only that stock stereo unit, but also the HVAC controls below it. Now, the kit comes with this screen unit as well as all the wiring harnesses that you see here on the table, and that's everything you're gonna need to get it hooked up and working. Now, if you've replaced the stereo before, you know it can get a little bit finicky and there are a lot of harnesses here, but this is definitely something you can accomplish at home.Again, everything you need is here, including the GPS antenna, RCA cables, your input for the reverse camera, even a little microphone for the Bluetooth calls. And it's good if you're at least familiar with wiring, but really you just need to make sure you get everything plugged into the correct spots. Overall, it's a straightforward installation, just a little bit time-consuming. But with that, let's head over to the install bay right now and we'll show you how to get this one done.Man: Tools used for this installation, three-eights electric ratchet, quarter-inch drive long extension, quarter-inch drive ratchet, a Phillips bit, three-eights to quarter-inch drive adapter, seven-millimeter socket, a short quarter-inch drive extension, T20 Torx, and a clip removal tool. Hey guys, I'm gonna show you how to install a Navos full-screen radio in our 2014 Dodge RAM 1500. So, let's get started. The first thing we're gonna do to remove our dash insert piece here is we're gonna get up in here and take this mat out. Underneath here, there's gonna be two torx bits that we have. We're gonna remove them, get them out of the way.Then we're gonna take our clip removal tool, pry around, and pop this piece off. So, first thing we're gonna do is take our plastic trim removal tool, get under here like that, pull out our little rubber mat, sits in here. And back in here, you're gonna find two torx bits, one here and one here. I'm gonna take my quarter-inch drive ratchet with a T20 Torx, and I'm gonna get up in here and loosen these two screws up. That's one. And then we have one more right here. So, now I'm gonna take the same tool that we pop that out with and we're gonna just go around the edge of this thing here, just like that. Then you're just gonna give it a tug, like so, and off it comes.Now, we're gonna remove these five wire connectors right here. I'm just gonna push and pull, just like that. Same with this one, push the clip, pull it out. Same goes with this one. Push the clip, out it comes. This one too, pop the clip off, and out it comes. And you're gonna do the same pushing the clip, you'll feel it on the back, and once you push it in, and you just lift up. We'll get that out of the way. Now, we'll remove our stereo. So next we're going to remove four seven-millimeters right here. Take my quarter-inch drive with my seven-millimeter and remove these four screws to remove the radio. So, now that we have those four out, you're just gonna be able to pull the stereo out.So, now that we have our stereo out, what we're gonna do is just start disconnecting our wires in the back, popping these off. Now let's unhook the main harness and that will be the removal of the stereo. So now that we got our dash piece here removed from our truck, what we're gonna have to do is remove this insert piece here with the AC and heater controls in it itself. So, to get this out of the vehicle, we're going to have to remove these Phillips head screws here to remove this piece from the other plastic. Then we can take this off and then we'll be able to install our new radio inside here and bolt it back up with the same existing screws.Now, I'm gonna take my quarter-inch drive electric ratchet with a Phillips bit and an extension, and I'm gonna get in here and remove these screws that are around this edge to drop that piece out. So, now that we have all our screws out, what I'm gonna do is just drop this piece of plastic out, just like that, which will remove our whole heating assembly here, which is gonna be replaced with our new radio. So, now that we have everything out and we have our plastic here, what we're gonna do is take our new radio, we're gonna slide this into place here, and drop it down just like that. And then what I'll do is I'm going to actually lay a towel down, flip this over, and then we'll start our screws from the backside.So, now I'm gonna take our factory screws and we're gonna put 'em back in place right where we took 'em out. I'm gonna take my electric ratchet here, my Phillips bit, and I'm gonna start a couple of these, and get 'em started. And then we'll just go around and put 'em all in. Now we have two more in the top here. That one's out, one. So, now that we have our unit in place here, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go over some of the options that we have with the stereo system. So, if you have a higher-end model, what you're going to do is you're going to go through all the harnesses that they give you. Now, in our vehicle, we're not gonna be using our cam output, we're not gonna be using our DVR. We don't have an after-market stereo system, which would be this harness right here. So, we're not gonna be using them.We have another USB that we're not gonna be hooking up. And we are going to use this mic if you want to use it to talk on the phone. I'll show you how to plug this in when we get it in. Now, what we will be using is we're gonna put, and I'm gonna show you how to install your Wi-Fi, this USB cable which will be able to be used for the phone and come down through. We have a GPS harness here and then we have our main harness that we're gonna be hooking up.So, I'm gonna show you how to hook that up, then we'll be ready to install it and finish putting our stock connectors in and our factory electrical connectors here. And we'll get this thing up and running. So, the first thing I'm gonna do is install the main harness that's gonna connect to our factory harness. That's gonna go right in this section right here. Just gonna take that and push that into place just like that. And that'll be our main harness that we're gonna use to connect everything up to. Next, what we'll do is install our Wi-Fi, which is gonna be this brass one, it's gonna go right here and screw 'em to this. So, now that we have that in place, next, we'll hook our GPS up. You're gonna see it's a blue connector. It's just gonna go right on here and plug in, you'll hear it click right into place like that. We'll leave that lay over here for now. Then we'll hook our USB harness up.Now, on this system here, you've got different slots and they're all based on the size of the connector. So, when you find the one that it fits, you know that's pretty much the one of where it goes. It's pretty nice how they did that. So, that harness is gonna go there. Last, what we'll do is hook up our antenna. They give you this connector here. You just go take this piece here, push it in the hole, like that, and that'll be able to hook up to our antenna in our vehicle. Now that we went through everything, we're ready to install this into our vehicle. Okay, now I have our system in place here to hook up. Again, depending on your trim level, it is going to depend on the amount of wires you have to hook up. Since we pretty much have a basic truck here, we're going to start with hooking up our main harness. We'll take that, plug that into this connector here, get that in, push the clamp down like that, and that'll hold that in place.Next, what we'll do is we're gonna take our wire here for our antenna. I'm gonna hook that up to the white wire right here and put this into place like that. And that gets locked in. Next, we'll hook up our USB cable right here and that's gonna go into this one here. So, we'll plug that right in, fit into place, like that. And then what we'll do is once we get those in, this is our USB port. I'm gonna drop this down then before we install it, it'll go down, and come out the bottom here, and it'll hang. We have our Wi-Fi and our GPS wires right here, what we're gonna do with these is they have double-sided tape on 'em.Now in our vehicle here, because we're gonna be taking this back off, I'm not going to use and take this off, but what you're just gonna wanna do is there's some metal brackets back here. What I'm gonna do is stick these back inside here and sit 'em back in place. Now, on our vehicle, we have a yellow wire here. I think this is the GPS for this vehicle. We're not gonna be hooking that up because we have our own GPS. So, we're just gonna take that and stick that back down in place so we don't use it. Next, we'll go into our heater control wires. These are our factory wires here. This one here, it's gonna get plugged into there. We're going to take all the factory connectors and plug these into place here. Then we have our couple of the other heater controls, we have one here, we're just gonna plug in. You'll hear it clip.And then the screen one here plugs into there. Now that we have all our harnesses connected, what we're gonna do is make sure we can get everything to go back into place here. We're gonna drop our GPS wire or our USB wire, I'm sorry. We're gonna drop that down through here and then we'll pull that out the bottom then. And that's if you need to use that, you'll have it. So, we put that down there and fish that through. So now we're gonna tuck our wires back in place here, line up our push clips to get this in place just like that. And pop it back into place, like that. Now we wanna start our two Torx bits up top here, get them into place. I'm going to take my quarter-inch drive with my T20 Torx right here. Tighten this up, tighten the other one up, and then stick our little map back into place here. So, there you go, like that.And now we'll go through some of the functions. So now we're gonna go through a quick procedure just to show you how this functions. What I'm gonna do is wait for it to come on. It takes a couple seconds, just gonna hit accept, and then it's gonna bring up to your home screen. We'll go back to that home screen now and you'll be able to see all your different selections where you have your music, you have video, phone link, your chrome, settings. You go into settings, you can, you know, program stuff into the radio, go back to home, you got your navigation system here. That's why we hooked our GPS up, you know, it'll search for them. We're in a building, so it might not do it now, but you get the idea.Radio, it goes into your stereo here, gives you all your channels. You can move it like this with your finger to set whatever station you wanna set. You know, so it gives you different options, your volume, your preset stations are all up top here. Also, you have your climate. You can go into your climate, turn your AC on, your fan, your heater, turn your temperature modes up, if you want. If you're cold, your fan will automatically come on, you send it down, it'll turn it off. Same with this side here. And cancel your climate control settings there. So, that's pretty much a rundown of what you're getting when you go through it.And as you can see, you can read the book. There's tons more stuff in here for this thing to do. That wraps up this review and install of our Navos Full Screen 10.4-inch OEM Style Radio Upgrade with Navigation for '13 to '18 RAMs 1500 with four-inch or eight-inch screens. Thanks for watching.
