Completely revamped, the new BCI-CH41 is a multi-functional interface module for select Dodge/Jeep/Ram/Chrysler vehicles that configures the factory radio to accept the addition of a reverse*, blind spot elimination (left/right side), and front camera inputs for added safety and convenience.

radio features while the vehicle is in motion. An audio/video media input* for passenger entertainment, the ability to
swap/reprogram the vehicle’s steering wheel controls and three programmable 12-Volt outputs for powering cameras or other devices are included. Lastly, innovative convenience features such as retaining last memory settings for vehicle models with Start-Stop, Eco-mode, Sport-mode and Remote Start Climate Control are provided.
