Update.. service manager (and his team) could not get the USB ports to recognize inserted thumb drives (formatted correctly and should've worked) so Lance is making a few calls to the "Chrysler Gurus" and I should hear back from him next week about this.
We tested my phone connected via USB port and it worked.. but only for music.. not pictures. All of the thumb drives we tried contain both music and picture files and the radio wouldn't recognize the thumb drives at all. He believes we will most likely be replacing the entire unit due to the software being up to date.. seems like a hardware issue to him. Me.. no idea!
I tossed the idea of replacing with a 430N unit.. nope. Chrysler looks at VINs and sends the exact same unit if a replacement is warranted. I would have to pay for the 430N out of pocket. No thanks.. Garmin ain't that
important to me.
So, I shall give updates as I receive them myself. To be continued...

Thank you Paul!!! They were able to disable the seat belt chime in the system. So, no more having to do the trick over and over again! I tested it on the way home and indeed there is no chime whatsoever! I just have to hit 'Back' on the steering wheel to clear the EVIC warning.. and even that doesn't display again after you clear it just the once.
Perfection!! At least something went right today!
