Re: 430N and iPod resolution

Do you get Album aRt so show up at all after you've copied your itunes music onto the HDD?
That seems pretty basic and I can understand why it's not working!

I did all of mine (hundreds) last year. I think that it was either free or maybe a nominal cost associated with each song. (19 cents each?) Well worth it as now I own the music and can load it onto hard drives like in the Jeep

FM, welcome to the forum. Do a quick search on "430n album art" within this forum and you'll see that it has been discussed ad nauseum, and that several tech-minded members have given their best shot at workarounds, but for now here's the bottom line:

* Album art only shows up on the 430n when you feed a CD into the slot and import music that way. This method of importing music is the most tedious of all options provided and it seems like the consensus here is to use faster methods (thumb drives or larger hard drives) and forego the album art.
* A forthcoming software patch to the 430n is hoped to be the fix for this and a handful of other missing/broken features (Travel Link, Bluetooth streaming to name a few).
* This patch was originally scheduled for January release. Latest reports from members who have spoken with ChryCo is that it is now slated for April. No one seems to be placing much stock in these projected timelines. We'll see it when we see it.

Hope that helps.

Re: 430N and iPod resolution

Ordered a Summit on 12-14-10 and got it in last week with the RHB 430N. I did get the $305 credit showing on the window sticker (saying the 430N takes place of 730N). Now, I like this radio but there are definitely some MAJOR gripes:

1. USB connection in the center console is buggy. I like to use an iPod and put it on random when I drive (usually at all times) so I don’t have to mess with the radio. Currently I have an iPod Video plugged in (iPod software up to date), works fine after it gets connected to the unit via Uconnect. When you shut the Jeep down and return later though the radio defaults to the FM input and it will take between 20 seconds & 3 minutes for the iPod to link back up to the head unit again. This is ridiculous because now I have to press the media button on the head unit, then I have to choose the device, then I have to wait for it to recognize again. And when the iPod starts playing again, I have to press the info button again to see the track name since it doesn't retain simple settings when you shut the power off. Will there be an update to fix little bugs like this?

2. Why did they remove the Cable for the iPod that comes with the RER’s?

3. The screen tends to have a vertical blur if you look at it while driving, anyone know the difference in screen resolutions from the 730N & 430N?

One last question, is there any difference in the speakers or amp on the 430N as opposed to the 730N package? This system doesn’t sound nearly as good as my 09 SRT8 Jeep. The sub is weak…. Did I get screwed on superior sound without the 730N?
