Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Anybody asked their Jeep dealer to flash the update?

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

My past experience with dealers and MyGig isn't too good, but my experience updating it myself with the updates found on The Unofficial MyGig Information Site.

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Its really simple... just burn a dvd after downloading it.

The install process checks the dvd prior to the actual update to make sure your burn process is not crap. Good anti-brick feature.

1. I have not lost my presets yet, its been 3 days
2. I "think" ( <- keyword) it sounds better. Its probably just me. After install the eq de-faulted back to stock 0-0-0. I previously had it jacked around for my liking. Ever since the update I have not changed it, sounds the same as before with the adjustments.

The stock stereo still sucks, I think it has more top end around 30-38 volume. I am probably just crazy

Are you moving regularly back and forth between driver settings 1 and 2? On ours, that's the only way the presets vanish, and even then only once every "x" days or 1/2 changes.

Yes, me and the wife split about 50/50 driving it. The only way I lost my settings before is when she drove it for a week straight.

I plan on trying to repeat this after the holidays when we both get back to work.

Thumbs up Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Hi guys - I've been watching this thread.

I just installed the 2.120 update on my RHR 730N in my 2011 WK2 as well. I burned the DVD from the .iso file via Windows 7. The update install required about an hour to complete. Besides the time required, the process was very user friendly. Looks like Windows CE.

Some notes:

I got bored and exited the vehicle and got back in and cause it to exit RUN mode - the 730N, however, remained powered until the update was complete even though the rest of the electrical system had shut down. Nice.

The file copy progress appeared to lock up on occasion which made me nervous, but no worries. There is probably some decompression going on. The update is long and boring, so be prepared.

I have the Lockpick V.4 installed and it caused no problems. It remains fully functional after the update. It actually has nothing to do with the application software on the unit, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone was concerned.

It appears that the update loads and builds before it is applied in the last few steps, good software engineering.

I have a 16GB SanDisk Cruzer Fit (micro) flash drive that lives in the front USB port, and the system initialized it and started playing form it faster than ever before, after the update. It was instant. That could have been circumstantial; I'll pay attention to it.

Happy holidays!

Edit/added: Thanks SOX!!

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

I updated mine to 2.120 tonight. I had 1.908 and Gracenotes 3211. Gracenotes was not updated as part of the upgrade. I've seen some people report that their Gracenotes was updated as part of the update, but it wasn't for me.

While I have had my HOME address disappear a few times, it doesn't happen very often so it may be a while before I'm confident whether its fixed or not.

There is at least one neat new feature and that is the display of a weather map with radar that wasn't there before.

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Running 2.120. I drove home (Denver) from Colorado Springs tonight and I totally dig the 3D/bird's-eye view for road trips. However, something odd that I noticed is that my RHR is showing *some* construction/road-conditions on the map and also listing them. This is odd because i do not have a Sirius subscription. ???

I do have Sirius data connectivity as I can play the music preview channel. But I am sure that this unit is not subscribed to Sirius service. Could this be a data artifact from a left-over expired subscription or something? The unit was aftermarket, pulled from another 2011 WK2. I did not notice any of this before the upgrade.

I will watch it and look into it tomorrow. Otherwise, so far, my 2.120 update is running swell!

Also, on a side note, my friend pointed out today that the RHR is labeled "HARD DISC DRIVE" - haha. What? Nerds and geeks will recognize that this should read "HARD DISK DRIVE". Are they hybridizing the term to indicate the HDD and the DVD drives on the unit?

The use of "DISC" is specific to removable CD/DVD/BR media. There is no such thing as a "HARD DISC DRIVE". Swing and a miss?

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Rookie question - I am sure the answer is somewhere but I'm not finding it. Should the car be running (and parked) when doing this or just in hit the Start button and get it into Run or Accessory mode?

Thanks
