I took it for a ride to go get some gas and while I was feeling up I left the radio on and when I got back in all the gas prices were showing up along with the movie times and stuff. Took 3 minutes to get to gas station and I am not sure when it all popped up while pumping but I put $90 in the tank to give an idea of how long that took! It all works great and I can't wait to drive it to the dealership next week with it on my 430N radio so I can rub it in my dealers face!

His and another dealers exact words to me were "you can only have that in the 730N and if Sirius told you other wise then they were flat out wrong." Then he said "there was never a disc and they do not even use discs anymore to update the radios." lol

I wish I recorded the whole conversation we had so I could replay it before I show it all working in my truck!

It's a lot easier for a dealership / mechanic to just say "no" than it is to say "i will take some time to investigate this and get back to you with an answer."

I ran by my dealer today and took my service advisor a disk and showed him how it worked on my truck. I also took my thumb drive with the 430 Radio update that solves the Apple issues and gave it to him as well. Now I have a real "in" with my dealer service dept. and a friend for life considering how many people have apparently been in there with these Apple issues and such.

Prolly better in the long run to build a good relationship with the dealer by sharing the cd or whatever vs ragging on them about them not knowing what to do. Just my .02.

Could you send me those thumb drive files some how so that I can fix my radios issues with my ipod touch? I heard about that coming out but I never heard that it was officially out... I would like to bring that with me also because they still do not know how to fix that either. It would be cool if I could teach them a few things and then have them help me out later on down the road when I need it.

Yesterday, 3 days after I finally got my own disc made and working, I got my CD from Sirius! Go figure, lol... Oh well, I saved myself 3 free days of the travel link since Sirius had already cost me 3 months of it! I also updated the radio so my ipod touch would work and now it all is up and running!

Travel Link doesn't work for me in Canada. Don't see it on the Menu. The update went as it said in the instructions.

I did the same thing and don't have it on my menu. I guess this doesn't work in Canada yet.
