how to reboot RHR?

My Rhr froze the other day while trying to do a phone call. Here is what happened:

I was listening to my iPod using bluetooth streaming when all of a sudden, itstopped playing. For some reason, The radio still considered my iPhone as being connected although it wasn't anymore. I even shutted down the phone inthe hope that the radio would disconnect but it didn't work. I then tried to do a phone call from the radio and it displayed the standard "calling" screen although my phone was off. From then, I could not get out of there, go on the radio or hang-off. The calling screen refused to leave. I even stopped the car for 10 minutes (off position) and the screen stayed on! I was worried about it draining the car battery... I tried all sort of key combinations to reset the RHR but no success. There is no mention about it in the user manual either.

Does anyone know if there is a way to force a reset on this radio?

Pull the fuse. It is eithe M10 or M12...I don't remember which.

Not that I know about. I vaguely remembe an option to reset to default settings but I'm not sure if that is just for the Navigation or the entire unit. I believe that option is in the Engineering mode. I'm at work now on my motorcycle so I can't check for sure.

Had a very similar problem:

I did read on here somewhere (sorry, can't remember where or find it at the moment), that there IS a way to do a soft re-boot of the RHR by holding both Seek Up and Down at the same time, or something like that?

Maybe the person that posted the info can chime in here?

This just happened to me yesterday. I had just ended a phone call and the radio froze. I could not turn it off and even turning off the car did not make a difference. I remembered reading about pulling the fuse (M13), did that and problem far.

Have you install the new update 2.120??

The correct fuse is M12 in the TIPM.

For REF:

Shame there isn't an easier way to do a re-boot. Fortunately, when this happened to me. It did correct itself after letting the truck sit for a few hours.

Re: how to reboot RHR?
You can force a reboot anytime by pressing both Seek buttons along with the Nav button. However, if the system is totally locked up you might still have to pull the fuse.

Re: how to reboot RHR?
I can confirm the Seek+/Seek-/Nav button sequence has ZERO effect on a locked-up unit.

(hung during update to v2.120) _ UGH!!
