HOLLY HILL, FL – Metra Electronics has announced OEM radio replacement in the 2011 and up Dodge Charger is now possible with their 99-6514B installation kit and interface combo.
The 2011 and up Dodge Charger was redesigned with style and technology in mind. But radio replacement wasn’t an option until Metra’s R & D team got involved. Now it’s a snap to install an aftermarket car radio thanks to Metra’s 99-6514B dash kit and interface combo.
The 99-6514B is designed to match the factory dash contours and painted a scratch resistant matte black for a factory look. The factory 4.3” touch screen is retained, while the aftermarket radio is placed in the original climate control location.
The interface included with the kit retains the function of the factory 4.3” touch screen while adding 2 switchable video inputs. New, backlit rubber buttons control the climate functions while the touch screen climate controls may still be used. The interface also supplies a 12 volt-10 amp accessory lead, retains the R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) functions, and provides Navigation outputs (Parking brake, Reverse, Mute, and V.S.S.).
The interface is also prewired for the Axxess ASWC steering wheel control interface making it that much easier to retain factory options. The interface uses High Level speaker inputs and retains Balance and Fade control.
USB updateable using a Micro B to USB cable via www.axxessinterface.com‘s USB Boot Loader program guarantees you have the newest firmware available at all times.
The optional ASWC steering wheel control interface and a 40-EU10 antenna adapter will complete the installation of an aftermarket radio.
Metra has a video explaining the use the installation kit in Chargers on their YouTube channel:
