    As a heads up for anyone interested in the Lockpick by Coastal Technology, be aware that the Charger Hellcat uses the Lockpick V2 (same as the Challenger), not the V1 as is shown on their website. I was able to complete the install today and it works flawlessly except that, while screen mirroring my phone through the lockpick, my Androids running Lollipop will not produce sound through the car's audio (this is a limtation of Lollipop and not the Lockpick). The hardest parts were getting the dash bezel off (requires lots of careful prying and pulling with a trim tool) & routing the cables to the glovebox.

    I did the install as well a couple weeks before i left. Notched the back of the glovebox and ran the wires through there and sat unit in there. I am also kind of bummed that lollipop won't work properly through the AIR function. That was one of the reason why wanted it. I might by another android player to keep movies on and leave that in the glovebox, we'll see. Hopefully Lockpick comes out with a software update. Because when i try to mirrior, it jst shows a black screen with a music folder open but doesn't play. It suppose to mirror whatever is on your phone onto the screen. So, hopefully they just do an update. I have had multiple Lockpicks over the years, and have rarely ever had an issue with them. Great product

    Every time I go to their website I feel like I'm in a time machine that took me back to 1998. I'm amazed anyone can select the right version of their product on the first try.

    Won't be putting one on our car. We put one on my husbands 09 challenger and it fried the navigation. We had a few friends in our car club have problems as well.

    The only issues i've seen of there's has been from when people connect the harnesses to the factory unit and they get a little aggressive lol. And they usually end up bending a couple of the pins and that causes errors. I had an issue once and it was that. Unplugged it, straightened out the pin, re-connected and good to roll. Think this is my 4th unit i've installed and probably 6th or 7th i have done overall. Pretty reliable and stable unit overall

    I agree, I have had several of these and they work great if installed correctly

    It would if it had a DVD player :( But that might be part of the reason they went with the "AIR" option. With DVD's going away and moving to USB, SD cards etc they might have gone with the AIR method of just streaming from your phone to the screen. But i found out, and someone else did to, that its not supported for Lollipop. SO, waiting on that update. I might just buy a small tablet etc that i can leave in the car loaded with movie, shows, etc
