GTYankee,
If your post was directed at me, thanks for the info.

As I posted, my radio model# is 5064678AE which would indicate a Dodge Journey donor vehicle from your post.

Seems my radio is the only one that refuses to change the Chrysler splashscreen to the RAM.

Everything else appears to work fine.

I am beginning to get used to the Chrysler splashscreen. I cover it with RAM wallpaper, but still see it when the radio first boots up.
A small irritation.

You could possibly fix that by taking a picture of your Ram
size the photo to the radios standards, as stated on page 52 ?? of the radio manual
d/l it to the picture file on the radios hard drive
then select it as the default image

have you checked to see what other images are in that same file currently ?

I have no problem setting/changing the default image.

The default image is different than the splashscreen or the background image.
(Hopefully I am using the correct terminology.

When the radio first boots up - it says Uconnect - Chrysler.
Similar to this:

This image displays for a few seconds while booting.
On my radio, the Uconnect is larger and on top, I read that ver. 10.00.01 of the software changes the logo to this one.
This is what I refer to as "The splashscreen"
People post that their radios changed to Uconnect - RAM after install, mine has not.

After the radio is on, the background image is the chrysler logo:


A lot of people say their radios change after install from that image to this image:


Mine refuses to change.

The default image I set gets placed over the background image.
So the Chrysler logo stays under the default image.

I am getting used to it now, and have my default image always on.
I have a few that I rotate through.

I just figures that my stuff does not change.

Knowing that the incorrect logos are under stuff is a problem with OCD that I have to deal with.

Try downloading updates from the following site. I updated my RBZ from 20 > 33 > to 50. Logos changed from dodge to ram on my unit.

Nick.Watkins, thanks for the response.
I have been to that website.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to update my older RBZ past 08.05.01. (it came with 06.06.01)

I have read that my older RBZ can only be upgraded to 10.01.11, but have been unable to get a good copy of that ISO.

I believe the documentation for the 33.XX upgrade requires the radio to be at ver. 13.01 or higher software, which I cannot get my radio to.

I did have the dealer flash my truck with the RBZ code when I had them flash to activate the backup camera I installed.
It still did not update the splashscreen logo.
I am learning to live with it.

I have the same problem with the RBZ I bought. It's an early, Mitsubishi-built 2010 model. For some reason, some of these radios just won't update the logos no matter what. It's the same for some Dodge and Jeep owners as well. It seems like it's not a software issue with these radios because I've read about plenty of people with all the various software versions and model years of RBZ radios who had the logos change. It seems like it's something going on with the way the radios were setup from the factory.

RAM owners have a different problem entirely when it comes to the older, Mitsubishi-built RBZ radios. They were built in early 2010 and back. It seems RAM wasn't its own brand when that software was in production. So, even if our Mitsubishi-built RBZ radios did have the ability to update the logos, I don't think it would because it doesn't recognize RAM vin's because the older software was created prior to the Dodge to RAM change.

It's too bad the older RBZ radios can't update to the newer software versions. If they could, it's very possible, the logos would automatically change to RAM after the update. I have not yet seen anyone mention their mid-2010+ built (2011+ model year) RBZ radios with the newer software not automatically update the logos.

One day, I may purchase a newer RBZ radio with the more feature-packed, updated software and watch the RAM logos change automatically. I do wish there was a way to go into the software on the older models, remove the Chrysler logos and replace them with the RAM logos from the newer software.

I know this is an old thread but...I put an RBZ from a VW Routan in my wife's caravan. The VW logo appeared at first then switched to a Chrysler logo the next second time the ignition was turned on.

That's the oddest thing. I wonder why it would do that? I've read about something similar happening to a RAM owner.
