Default Amplifier Update!!!

Took my truck into the dealership yesterday for an inspection and they told me my truck has 3 software updates available to... so I had the wife come pick me up and I let them do there thing.... Well apparently one of those updates was a amplifier reflash.... HE'LL YA my truck finally sounds like there is a sub in there.. I highly recommend it... I find myself listening to my music on 25 volume when I used to have to have it at 32 for the same effect. Sub is alot more responsive and hits a little better....check it out guys!

Interesting, will have to see if they have any updates for mine, it hasn't had any sort of updates at all since December, kind of a but annoying IMO though that you need to take a truck in to have a sound system updated.

Can this update be downloaded? Or do you have to go to the dealer?

I took my 2013 Longhorn in for a different issue last month and asked them to check if it was due for any updates. When I got my Ram back they said there weren't any updates available. They have not seen my Ram since April 2013 so I find that hard to believe. I'm supposed to be taking it back shortly so they said they would look again. Probably means they will look for the first time.

Does anyone know for sure though if these updates are UConnect style updates (meaning we could do them ourselves via USB) or is it some update they flash through the ECM?

I had done all the UConnect updates myself, so i would think that the dealer has to do it.
