For my 2020 JLU Willys.
I ordered the following and used the IOS JSan app to enable the new Climate control. It took a couple power cycle's to get everything working correctly but its all good now. I ordered from Jeremy at https://parts.chryslerjeepdodgecityofmckinney.com/ Jeremy was very helpful in getting me the correct 8.4 UConnect for my 2020. Just one note the Satellite Radio cable 68293949AA that I ordered is the wrong part number but I was able to make it work. That cable is for a JK and it's just too short to install the antenna in the factory location. Also this radio has software 28.2.

Here's my question. I have since decided that I (want) that volume control and tuner knob back in my life. Does anyone know the part number for this control panel, pictured, on a 2020 model year vehicle?
There seems to have been a change for this model year, and I can't figure out which one that I need. I figured it out for 2018, but I'm lost with 2020.

Did you have to use a security bypass cable for in order for the J Scan to work? Which wireless OBD II device do you have? I want to get one, just not the wrong one. I am told that here are a slue of devices which are not capable with the J Scan app. Thank you!
I used the OBDLink MX+ OBD2 Bluetooth with the following bypass for Chrysler's Security Gateway Module

Upgraded my 5" SXM Uconnect for an almost new 7" on my JLU, I picked it up for $400... its off a JT Gladiator (68406031AH) w/ SXM still had factory trial... no issues so far. Synchronized perfectly w/ JLU sport.

Got code and VIN for updates

Initially had the temperature tab button but now dissapeared. Now looking into adding a center stack.

Has anyone gotten the Compass to work after they upgraded to the 7"? I have a non XM radio and im wondering if i need to add the GPS antenna to make it work? I do have one open port on the back of my radio....... There is a Whiteish gray port, blue port, and a redish port. anyone have any luck with this?

I pick up a stack from LQK for $100. I used a vgate icar pro OBD. And $19 license fee for my vehicle. Set the a/c to dual zone atc. And it all works.

You will need some sort of gps antenna plugged into that port. eBay has some generic FCA antennas that should work.

I did not add the antenna. I don’t need the compass. I set it so the clock is in place of the compass on the dash.

I was able to get mine to work great and super easy to do...then I put the 5” back in and traded the JL in. I can never make up my mind. I guess the 7” goes on ebay soon with the control panel.

I’ve been reading through this thread fairly extensively but I’m still not sure exactly what’s needed if I want to upgrade from a 5” to a 7” that was previously used in another Jeep. I have the VIN, is there anything else I would need? I’m ok with just using the steering wheel controls
