    Anyone getting the Uconnect service working for a 2013 Ram with a 2018 UAQ radio yet?

    If you missed it, I answered your question in the other thread too ...
    That's 4-5 years of people trying

    I looked and didn’t see anything. Is there a Harness to hide a media hub behind he dash? I currently have a 12V behind the dash, but rather use the media hub as I like the use of the media hub with my iPhone. Either in form of a splitter would be better.

    Hard to give a concrete answer ...

    13-18 radios all have Bluetooth built in.

    Adding the 18 UAS or UAQ radio to an 18 truck may require a different HVAC control module than we were using in the 13-17 trucks or possibly a blend door recalibration (not getting full blend door travel w/13-17 hvac module). Reported by Gibbs. Awaiting feedback.

    13 -17 Ra4 vp4-NA in a 2018 truck appears to work ... but may give the Service Cellular System error message (normally cancelled using a Cell Bypass plug). Reported by @Gibbs and @Buckeye2019 .
    Not sure if adding the 2017-18 911/assist mirror (w/o mics) or actual sharkfin antenna will correct it yet.

    The 17 & 18 trucks normally have the mics in the headliner above the front seats (not in the mirror). The wiring is routed differently and can't easily use a 13-16 mirror with mics. If your truck has the mics your in good shape to upgrade. Otherwise, your going to have to do some legwork to get em in there.

    Handsfree will require adding the VR/Phone button to the wheel. I'm not sure if the 13-17 PN is the same for 2018 trucks or not.

    Maybe others can elaborate/help fill in some details since there still seems to be some things to work out on the 18 trucks.
