Aftermarket performance with factory fit

Like the look of your factory radio, but wish it could do more? Car Show designed this Piranha Series multimedia receiver to fit perfectly in the dash of select 2006-up Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles, giving you touchscreen navigation, DVD movie playback, CD/MP3 playback, and Bluetooth connectivity. You can rock out to your favorite songs or files on disc, or you can hook up your iPhone or iPod for complete control and access to your playlists. You'll have front and rear USB inputs at your disposal, or you can just plug your music player in through the built-in front panel auxiliary input.

GPS navigation built-in

Car Show offers iGo Primo nav software, so you'll always be on the right path. You can navigate to specific addresses or any of the 11 million POI in all 50 states. The high-res 6.5" touchscreen display shows maps by TeleAtlas of the U.S. in easy-to-read detail, including 3D building and landmark views in many cities. Features like lane guidance and junction view help keep you on the right path during tricky maneuvers in unfamiliar territory.

Bluetooth by Parrot for convenience and safety

This Piranha receiver also features reliable Bluetooth connectivity by Parrot. You can make and take calls without having to touch your compatible phone. You'll hear your caller over the car's speakers, while the built-in microphone picks up your voice. For added clarity in noisy vehicles, you can install the included external microphone in a convenient location. You can also stream music from your compatible mobile device to the Car Show receiver.

Keep your Chrysler factory steering wheel controls

Car Show builds their systems to match up with your Chrysler vehicle's dash opening and wiring. The included wiring harnesses let you install the receiver without having to splice wires or modify your dash, plus you don't need an expensive adapter to keep your door chimes and turn signals. Car Show even includes an adapter to keep your Chrysler's steering wheel controls working with your new receiver (wire splicing required).


Video center

You can watch DVDs on the 6.5" screen while parked. You can also use the rear audio/video output to add back seat screens — then use the dual zone feature to let your passengers watch movies in back while you listen to music up front. If you've got a rear-view camera on board, hooking it up to this receiver is a great way to keep everyone safe.

In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Direct OEM Replacement
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

50 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
20 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

TFT-LCD Monitor
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

CS-CR1210-US in 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport

April 19, 2014

After reading the excellent review on another site, I began researching the Rosen Car Show Piranha CS-CR1210-US for my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I had the standard factory radio (RES) single CD with steering wheel controls.
There are a couple installation videos that Rosen has on YouTube that also helped me with my decision.

I wanted something that looked factory, had Sirius/XM, Bluetooth, RDS, hands free phone, backup camera, worked with my steering wheel controls and was easy to install. I also did not want to pay $1000+ for this. This unit fit my needs very well.

I ordered it from Sonic Elextronix after calling them with a few questions. I wanted to make sure this was truly plug and play. Sonic was cheeper then other online retailers and I used my savings to purchase a Metra TE-THC backup camera. I also picked up the SXV200V1 Sirius XM Connect tuner at a local big box retailer. UPS delivery from Sonic was 4 days.

I spent the better part of an evening and morning for the install. No real problems, I just went real slow and wanted to get it right. The toughest part was the rear camera install. I ended up putting the camera in the trailer hitch cover because I did not want to remove the bumper.

The fit of the head unit is very tight and make sure you don’t pinch or cut any wires trying to get them all pushed up behind the radio.

Everything worked fine except the backup camera. My quick splice connector at the back up lights did not work with the very thin backup camera wires. I had to cut the wires and use a butt connector. Then all was fine.

The unit works and sounds great and is truly plug and play. It comes with the harness needed for the Sirius XM SXV200V1 and set up was easy. The steering wheel controls, volume, will switch radio presets, scan radio frequencies and let you switch on navigation. For some reason once in navigation, I can’t switch back out, with the steering wheel controls, although I can still change radio presets with the steering wheel controls while navigation is on.

My only concern is if I can update maps in the future. The web site Rosen sends you to wants you to download different installation software. My computers are Apple and it looks like their stuff is Windows only. I would be interested if someone has successfully updated their software from the web site

My install is only one day old but so far I am very happy with my purchase. This is a very nice, professional looking do it yourself install for someone who likes to tinker, but is not a professional.

Great headunit but could be improved.

January 28, 2015

I've had the unit installed for about 2 months now and I feel I now is a good time to share a review of the product. I installed it on a 13' Wrangler sport with a standard CD player (no bluetooth, no nav) The bad section is mostly nitpicking but I feel it should be mentioned.

Good =)

- Really simple install, everything went together fairly simple. Im a hobby mechanic at best and only really own a simple tool set.
- Fit is spot on and it looks OEM. Even the green illumination matches my Jeep (very close if it exact)
- Lots of potential to add more. eventually I want to add a rear view cam and maybe a small system.
- Navigation has worked very well so far. Music apps display artwork and function reasonably ok
- Steering wheels controls are included (mostly)
- Bluetooth calling works well even without the external mic installed

Bad =(
- Canada maps are NOT included. This is a extra $70 or so
- No album art or track info is displayed while playing through bluetooth. SD cards will have this feature.
- At times changing tracks can lag. This may be a limitation of the memory card im using but an issue all the same.
- Steering wheel track up/down does not work on 12+ Wranglers. You can skip tracks with the small middle button but unable to go back. luckily those buttons are also on the headunit.
- I have not had luck with video playback. tried maybe formats on a SD card but no luck (DVDs should work)
- making calls feels like it could be abit easier
- The UI just seems very clunky in general. There is very little customization and most menus leave something to be desired. Even just simply navigating to different menus can take some effort.

Like I said mostly nitpicking... no major issues though. For anyone wanting a clean OEM-like install that is also functional, im confident this is the unit for you. I've had several people look at it now and couldn't believe it didn't come with my Jeep. Other units may do more or even work slightly better but they don't look like they belong.

I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and I wanted to upgrade my stereo to a GPS system. After reading numerous reviews, I chose the Car Show by Rosen Model based on overall value and ratings

I will be replacing the factory radio (430N RHB) . I currently receive satellite broadcast through the factory radio. Will I still need to buy the additional SXV200v1?

bluetooth and ipod connectivity?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2014
Best Answer: Bluetooth works great - for phone calls and for streaming music. Don't know about I pod connectivity as I use a Samsung S5 (Android). But as indicated, easy to stab music from any device using Bluetooth. Also supports SD cards and USB singles so you can put all your music on one of these and have it available all the time. I have an SD card loaded with audio books for long trips.

Anyway- great unit and highly recommend.

A bunch of "plug-n-play" units for 2007-2010 Jeep JK's will not work if the Jeep has the factory "Premium Sound" option installed. Will this?
