RHR Radio 2.700 firmware and Gracenotes 6168 Updates

All,

I found that there was a recent update firmware posted (2.700) for the RHR radios.

Download Now | MyGig RHR 2.700 Software Update


I also found that there is a Gracenotes (Music Album Art database) update as well which brings you up to v6168!

http://www.mediafire.com/download/82...e_RHR_6168.iso

Hope this helps people out. I updated my 2012 JK earlier this week and there were no issues applying these updates.

Perform the firmware update prior to updating Gracenotes.

Enjoy!


***EDIT: this is not for the UConnect 5.0 or 8.4 systems. This is for the older units in the pre 2014 WK2's.

"Burning" as-we-speak.

I'm actually pretty amazed that they released an update, even if it's modest, for these older systems.

Re: RHR Radio 2.700 firmware and Gracenotes 6168 Updates

I applied both the firmware update and the Gracenotes update this afternoon successfully. (I don't really care much about the latter, but staying current isn't a terrible thing...)

Re: RHR Radio 2.700 firmware and Gracenotes 6168 Updates

I contacted SOX to see if there are any release notes for this update, but unfortunately, at the moment, there does not seem to be any.

That said, I note that they clearly have made some improvements to the Bluetooth side of things. While streaming from my public radio station app (wxpn.org) or the Apple Music app via Bluetooth, I'm now getting the song information available on the display. That was not the case with v2.600. Hopefully, there is improved stability when the BT phone connection interrupts music playback as I was getting occasional "system goes out of its mind" incidents on very long trips with v2.600.

The update retained my radio presets, but set the EQ back to "flat", so I had to return it to where I like it.
