Re: NEW software application version MyGIG RHR-RHP-RHW / 2.169

First time here trying a software update... I guess its like a firmware update. I assume this is a leak since I guess I can ask my dealer for a software update.

My GC have a "special" unit since it has the 70th logo... It is possible to have an upgrade for the 70th model?

Re: NEW software application version MyGIG RHR-RHP-RHW / 2.169

SOX!
I went for it! I not only upgraded the software, I went with the newest version of Gracenotes.
I can report that my phone connects via Bluetooth so much faster.
As some have said the radio is much more responsive...almost quick
Also, my biggest issue has been favorites (green star)
Well, after three drives they are all still stored. Usually, they would erase after I turned the car off the first time after setting them.
My only issue is it takes a while and sometimes I have to manually choose the ipod connected via USB in the armrest but all in all nice step in the right direction!
I was beginning to loose hope...

Re: NEW software application version MyGIG RHR-RHP-RHW / 2.169

Has anyone had the 730 shut off since updating? My wife has told me the unit has shut off several times on its own. Never did that until I did this update. Curious if it is a bug. I checked the fuse and it was secure.

1) The DVD Video button now appears also in driving mode
2) In Navigation, I can enter addresses etc...
3) There's a new VES greyed button (I've no VES) that now appears now next to the other audio sources. so the integration & usage of the lockpick is quite seamless. a VES config button appears in the settings menu as well to switch on/off the VES but as said I'm not using it.
4) My unit is MyGIG 730 RHP Unit (export version South Africa) updated to V2.169. I was not actually sure the lockpick V5 would work with my export unit but it does hopefully

Installation: quite easy, just take your time
- remove the center bezel, grabbing it from the bottom gently: no need for any tool as it unclips naturally.
- took out the 4 screws around the radio & removed the MyGIG
- connect the whole thing as per instructions, connecting the lockpick part last.
- I've squeezed the lockpick above the radio, in the small space there below the dash so it doesn't move in the foam. advice : put some tape on the dip switches area of the lockpick so that switches don't change settings when manipulating / pushing the unit in.
- ignited in acc mode & switched on the radio, it initialized, asked for a radio lock code for a few seconds (I got scared here...) did some DVD ejects .. and just "settled" as complete initialization was completed.
- everything is back to normal now.
- I've cut and tape isolated all the other lockpick goodies connectors I'll never use (additional cam, inputs, outputs...etc...) in order to have a minimum cable mess behing the myGIG.

I ordered the lockpick V5 from www.sonicelectronix.com as I was struggling with Coastaltech. received from US and cleared in South Africa within 2 weeks
hm ok buts this are not all.

look here the pics.

I'm having this issue too, it's happened twice it the past couple days. The unit just shuts off and then reboots while I'm driving.

yeap!... I think it is embedded in software, and thus can be lost on an upgrade... or the 70th logo is just another file?

I know you can put there whatever wallpaper you want. I am a bit worried about not loosing something that "distinguish" my radio / GC model from other editions. Thanks for those attachments.. lets see how they look.

Re: NEW software application version MyGIG RHR-RHP-RHW / 2.169

You are right: I don't have the TV menu and it's not really needed actually as the main unlock functions work VD / NAV and rear cam on demand as well.

Display of Rear cam can be triggered at any time while driving by pressing twice the uconnect handset wheel button. pressing again twice comes back to previous display

Ditto

It's happened 5-10 times since installing this version for me. I think I only had it happen once or twice in the 10 or so months I had the car before that.

Same here. Any idea when the next update will be ready? If not, is there a way to go back to the previous version? It's happened 5-10 times since installing this version for me. I think I only had it happen once or twice in the 11 or so months I had the car before that.

Re: NEW software application version MyGIG RHR-RHP-RHW / 2.169

2.169 update worked great. ISO was simple to create DVD. Simple to install in RHR unit. Now my Blue tooth for cell phone use is instantaneous at start up. used to have a 30 second or so lag with 2.120. Thank you SOX. Now looking for the next Gracenotes update from 4118. Today, I noticed that Michael Jackson's album cover shows up for my Alan Parsons Project album.
