2011 Uconnect SW update info
 
Hello forum members,

In response to a PM that I received today from a member:

I know that I have this information in several threads, but I can't remember which ones. So I'm going to start a thread with the 2011 Uconnect SW update.
This is the update that has been out since June of 2011. It's for 2011 vehicles that were built prior to 6-1-2011 and have one of the radios (RES, REQ, RBZ & RHB) ONLY. It is not for the Harman radios (RER, RHR).
This update will fix the "error occurred" that is displayed when connecting an iPod or IPhone to the docking cable. It will also fix the choppy audio when streaming audio thru BT.

Here are the instructions:
Make sure that you DO NOT have any power interruptions during the update, for best results have the motor running so there are no interruptions).
You will need at least a 2 GB thumb drive. If you have files on the thumb drive, please delete them and format the drive (to FAT32) just to make sure that it is completely clean.
Download it to the thumb drive that has no other files on it. Turn the radio on, Place the thumb drive in the center console USB connector (on vehicles with the dealer installed unit, it should be in the glove box), press and hold the Uconnect button for about 12 - 15 seconds, you should here "update started". This process should take about 15 - 20 minutes; there will be some beeps during the process. Please listen during the update for any error message that may be said by Uconnect. When the update is completed, the radio screen will go back to a radio display. Turn the ignition off, open & close the driverís door. Wait about 1 minute, then turn the key on and test the system.

And here is the file location:
uconnect.upd


Part 2
Iím also going to add this update here for members that have just applied the above update. You will notice that the Bluetooth streaming audio sound quality is not so great. After you have applied the above update then (and only then) apply this update the same way that you did the one above. Go to my thread link below and see post # 23 for the file link.

Thanks xsdbs for your information.
I first tried to pair my Galaxy S3 with no SW upgrade, but it did not work.
I then did all as indicated, but I was not lucky. During the SW update it said it is not for this "article" (means unit, as the language is set in French).
I had to plug the thumb in the USB port in the glove box. It didn't work in the center console one. So may be it's a dealer installed unit. Remember my truck is an Export vehicle, built Feb 2011.
Bellow some details of the system:
Application: 09.00.02
AUDIO CPU: 081910
Gracenote: B90
System: 0201
There is also a serial number available that I did not post here.

Any other solution to help me upgrade my 430N RBZ would be welcome.
Many thanks in advance. Denis.

Denis, can you post a picture of your Uconnect module? If it is factory installed, you will need to drop the glovebox down toward the floor, look inside the cavity to the far right side of the dash structure. There should be a 4"x6" black module mounted there. Thanks

hey xsdbs, Does it matter that im downloading this file via a mac? -Thanks

Connman67 01-10-2013 12:22 AM

Tried the update. Followed the instructions above. When i press the uconnect phone button it says to attach update mass storage and try again. Tried this several times.- Cheers

I will need to look into this but I don't think it would matter.

What is the build date of the vehicle?

Connman67 01-16-2013 04:19 AM

Couldn't find the build date on the build sheet, i will check on the vehicle tomorrow and let you know. I do remember updating with this a couple months ago but it said it was finished in about 5 minutes, didnt take as long as expected so i figured something was wrong. :(

xsdbs 01-16-2013 10:09 AM

Well if you tried it before, did you get the same prompt that you're getting now? If not, then what are the current issues? Can you play music from an iPod / iPhone with the docking cable? If not what error message do you see on the radio screen?
Can you stream music from the phone using BT? If not what does it sound like?

Build date is December 2012. I am able to play music from my ipod, always have been able to. My issue is that i am unable to stream from iphone until the iphone screen goes black. I get the fast forward sound when i first plug it in. After the iphone screen goes black, it plays fine. - Thank you

xsdbs 01-18-2013 11:03 AM

December 2012????
Is this a factory installed Uconnect or did the dealer install it? What radio do you have? (sorry if I missed that)
