    I wanted to switch out my wife's radio with a double din Pioneer unit. I was trying to find out if she will loose sport mode or was it another way to turn it on?

    Does the '13 not have a Sport Mode button? My '15 does. I would say if that's the only place it is accessible, then yes, it will be lost.

    Sport mode is built into the shifter, no button on the radio...atleast on my car. Also, unless something has changed I thought that you had to keep the factory screen and headunit in the vehicle and had to buy the kit to add the second head unit down where the storage area is located due to the climate controls and what not being incorporated into the headunit....

    I'm pretty sure my '13 R/T has sport mode activated through the 8.4 touch screen only.

    With the heated seats screen.

    Sport mode is activated on the touch screen for the 2013 RT if that is what she has. Your wife will lose a lot more than just the sport mode if you swap it out for a stereo unit and most likely will not talk to you for a very long time.

    The 2013 Sport Mode control button is a soft button on the Uconnect screen. The 2013 R/T has the 5-speed NAG1 transmission so Sport Mode is not selectable on the shifter.
    If you install the Pioneer unit, and lose the Sport Mode control button, there's no alternative I know of to turning On/Off Sport Mode. There's a Tazer device that can enable factory Sport Mode for 5-speed vehicles ... but it enables it using the Uconnect soft button.

    You have to literally modify the car to do it and that's really not an option with the 8.4. Do you have NAV? Think about it...the factory radio is not that bad!

    Select "Controls" on the bottom of the Uconnect screen and the display will look similar to the one below. Sport Mode (or Sport) will be displayed in the top of the screen. Touch it and it will toggle On/Off. The word "Sport" will be displayed on the bottom of the EVIC display when Sport Mode is active/enabled.

    I believe sport mode is only available on the Charger Road and Track or Charger R/T's with the super Track Pack option

    For the 2012-2014 MYs, Sport Mode (it displays as Sport Track on my screen) is in the 29R Road/Track Performance Group option. The 3-mode ESC (electronic stability control, traction control) is in the Super Track Pak option.

    You can add Sport Mode and ESC/ESP disable using a Tazer device.

    Thanks, After I posted...I did a bit more research and have found that I can get the option along with SRT pages using the TaZer by Zautotech! http://zautotech.com/

    I'm definitely going to be picking one up along with a diablo tuner soon!

    Indeed Indeed!

    Interesting, I have 3.06 gears in my RT Max, wish they'd given the Sport option too. No biggie as the TaZer gives that and more!!
