Radio-Upgrade.com offers worldwide shipping using international couriers like FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. Although most orders take 7-10 business days to arrive, please allow up to 3-5 weeks
for delivery. Please allow up to 3 business days for your product to ship once the order is placed. A tracking number will be provided once your order is ships out. Customs will sometimes

The radios come with many cables and accessories for most models. These include: AV and AUX outputs and inputs, dual-zone audio/video cables, main wiring power harness, 3G/WiFi cable, back-up camera video port, USB input cable, iPod cable, wired microphone (optional, as the unit has a built-in microphone), GPS Antennae, radio antenna adapter, remote control, and user guide and manual.

Only the Satellite Radio w/GPS systems and the Rearview Mirror GPS products will allow you to retain satellite radio. In order to listen to satellite radio on our other models, you need to either use an external satellite tuner and plug into the AUX cables in the rear of the radio, or use the bluetooth streaming feature from a smartphone using the free Sirius/XM app.
We average 5-7 business days for delivery. That means most of the time you will receive your order in around a week.
Yes, you can splice the factory backup camera into the video input of the radio, but it does require splicing into the factory wiring harness. It is not plug-and-play. If you are not comfortable with splicing wires, we recommend you have your local car stereo shop perform the installation. Metra Online provides factory backup camera interfaces too. VIEW HERE
The first thing I would try is to go to your local car stereo store and have them swap out the FM antenna adapter. Some of the aftermarket FM antennae adapters have a better signal than our adapter, and the cost is usually under $15. You can lookup the FM antenna adapter for your vehicle online at http://metraonline.com/parts/MET-ANTWRK/M-ANT_ADPT
You must remove the packing screws from the top of the radio. These are used to keep the CD floating mechanism fixed during shipping. There should be a sticker with arrows on top of the radio that instruct the installer to remove the screws before installation.
We test the white and black wifi dongles that we sell on Radio-Upgrade.com. They work well with iPhone 5 and Android mobile phones, and they work with router with 802.11b/802.11g. They do not work with 802.11n/802.11bg mixed/802.11bgn mixed protocols.
Yes, many customers thought they got the 2012 maps because when they check the navigation version, it displays 2012. But this is the main navigation software version, not the map data version. Our radios ships out with the most current version of maps available. Usually if there is new map data, we only need to copy the the new map data into the map folders. There is no need to update the main software. So customer can check the map data version, it shows 2014. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to check your maps version.
We recommend customers install the GPS antenna on the dash of the car so the GPS antenna can get good GPS signal.

The radios are equipped with a video input for an aftermarket back-up camera, and the radios automatically switch to that camera input when the vehicle is shifted into the reverse gear. Under settings, you can turn off this "reverse detection" feature.
The radio has a separate clock setting for the navigation and the other basic radio functions. You need to set both clocks.
It is not recommended to play DVD movies while driving the vehicle because of safety concerns. This safety feature can be disabled from within the settings menu.
