Hopefully the v2.4 later this month will help although i think this update is mainly for the ip4 issues.
And, going under a small two lane brigde should not cause the SAT to drop, going through a tunnel or when filling up at a gas station will/could.
Also, my radio control button on my steering wheel (middle button, left side, back of wheel) doesn't advance through the presets as it should, it just goes up in numerical order. I even demonstrated the problem to my delaership, they are looking into it. Anyone else experience this?
The update is supposed to help with the "acquiring channels" glitch too.
Sometimes you can lose sat signal from fairly insubstantial overhead cover; it just depends on what the sat coverage is at the time. Sometimes I lose it just going over a bridge (one with the overhead steel framework). Sometimes I don't (same bridges, even!).
Yes, I get the same deal with the steering wheel button. Sometimes it works fine. Sometimes the center nub acts like I'm just hitting "channel up." I don't know if it's something in the switch or the head unit programming; I haven't had the dealer look at it yet.
