To install this MYGIG V5 Freedom In Motion in a Nitro you first need to remove the radio trim plate and radio as shown in this video

DON’T Do as I did and follow instructions. First off cover your Screen to protect it from any scratches.












It may be best to remove the radio, install the new Lockpick harness then reinstall to Nitro to hook backup to factory harness. To allow more room you can also place the vehicle in drive, turn off engine and apply the emergency brake.



The new harness easily fits through an opening to the right passenger side to behind the glove box door. Drop down the door by squeezing both plastic hinges to the inside to access the new Lockpick harness for intended use. Keep in mind that with the glove box door disconnected and hanging down you cannot shut the passenger door, however with it dropped down you can slide it to the right and completely remove it.

I purchase this Lockpick unit and did experience an issue from the start that proved to be a defective Lockpick brain (CPU) that is enclosed in a flimsy plastic housing and must have had a cracked or broken printed circuit board. Nothing I did and was not damaged in shipping but if I just touched the unit, that plugs in to their harness, both cameras would work or not work! Thanks to GPS & Radar Shop (Amazon) for exchanging this unit with a new one that corrected immediately this issue that originally drove me crazy.

I experienced another issue with what I feel is a very poorly designed case for the brains of this unit.

First off there is no mounting bracket or mounting hole on this plastic case. Sure it is very light in weight and so it could just hang from the wiring harness. Maybe that is what other Nitro owners have done? But for me and my experience with the first CPU case not protecting the printing circuit board I suppose, I wanted to place this case somewhere in the Nitro not just hanging to protect it and also not to rattle. I found a cubbyhole just behind the glove box that would work just fine.

Well just a few days after installation both cameras started acting up. Upon investigating I was shocked to see that not only one but both of the control box switch settings had changed! Yes the switches protrude from the case and must have moved while driving! I reset all switches to their proper and original settings and fabricated covers to protect these switches and settings held on with electrical tape around the case and returned to that cubbyhole.. It has now been over a month with no recurring issues or problems.
