Re: Software Updates to the RHR

It does this for about 30 minutes.

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

OK. So I went back out to take a lower res picture and to my surprise the unit had shut off. When I tried to turn it on it asked for a security code. I tried 1111 and 1234 but neither worked. After a couple of attempts the screen said the anti theft has locked me out for 30 minutes. Rebooted the system again and also got the security screen. I then toggled through ACC/RUN/OFF and got to the normal nav screen. I was then able to get the disc out. System Info says I have 2.120. I don't know what in the world happened here but it seems to working fine for now. Hopefully I didn't corrupt anything.

I don't understand why my unit is so fickle and unpredidctable. Hopefully the next software update is more solid.

thanks for the help.

The software wasn't the problem; you have/had a hardware issue, most likely a bad DVD or a dirty lens. Less likely, but also plausible, is a faulty hard drive. Glad you got it resolved. Don't be careful or delicate with it, use the hell out of it - if you continue to have/find issues with the unit, make your dealer replace it.

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

All my presets have held for a few weeks. One thing I did after the update was go into the evic and disabled RKE linked to memory. Turned the car off and on then turned RKE linked to memory back on. Did the proper setup steps with the fobs and have been perfect since.

Diddling with the RKE link to memory setting is an interesting concept. Haven't done the update, but we don't need or particularly want RKE linked to memory, so I just went out and turned it off to see what that buys us.

Who knows, perhaps just doing that will resolve the vanishing presets/nav settings issue?

I wouldn't be surprised. I've mentioned it somewhere before, but I don't have the RKE/driver memory features in my vehicle and I have never had a single 730N settings/memory issue whatsoever. Good luck!

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Its been two weeks since update and the radio has not lost home or presets. Prior to the update it took perhaps 3 days.

Haven't tried the nano yet, should have it back Friday.

I was able to see weather fronts today but only in the USA (farthest zoom out) view.

I took my truck in for an oil change and mentioned to the service manager that home was dropping off of my nav system. After looking at it for about 30 mins, they ordered a new radio for me. It is now installed with 2.120. So far so good...

UPDATE: Almost two weeks later, with RKE link to memory turned off and still using v2.110, there hasn't been a single instance of lost settings. Before that, presets and nav home vanished almost every day that my wife and I both used the vehicle, going back and forth between the 1/2 memory settings.

Most (but not all) who have upgraded to v2.120 report similarly favorable results. So there now appear to be fully two independent solutions to vanishing radio and nav settings.

Have you tried? Or can you please try your iPod nano 2nd generation in your Jeep with 730N RHR and let me know if it plays through the USB in the center console?

thanks!

Short story is that I sent my nano back for repair and last week, to my surprise, they replaced it with a current generation nano. So sorry I don't have a gen 2 to try.

Re: Software Updates to the RHR

Been running 2.120 for over a month now and no memory loss. Also, my 32GB usb drive works much more reliably now. Before the update the radio would forget what song it was on and would start over at the beginning of the usb drive whenever you started the vehicle. Works as expected now.
