Default 2012 Sport no longer standard with 430 Media Center

It appears that the 430 is altogether gone for 2012, apparently due to lack of parts due to the tsunami. Sports will receive the 130 as standard. I am not sure if the base price is going down or not, I will check into it this week. However, if you want the back up camera, you will have to go to the 730 with nav, which I believe was a $1400 option, PLUS the additional $200 for the cam. A little food for thought for those who are considering a 2012 vs 2011

On the other hand, I guess it was a late option for 2011, but you can get 3.55's with a locker for 2012

the RES & REQ are very basic media centers, they are capable of doing everything, but the modules are all left out, you have to buy them for a large extra charge
of course a back up camera won't work with them, no screen

I was under the impression the uconnect 8.4" would be an available option? Is this still only available on chargers and journeys?

The only audio options I saw was the standard 130 and the 730 w/nav. My dealer was actually trying to build a 12 like mine for inventory (they got it from another dealer) and showed me the order system

That sucks that the 430 might be DOA.

I have the 730 in my Challenger and my Ram has the 430 and I was prepared to dislike it over the 730; but after using it for 15 minutes its hands down 100% better than the 730.

The Garmin Nav is the easiest to use , the car gps stats are cool and the recent update with Sirius Travel Link is a worthwhile freebie.

430N with Travel Link as a freebie? How did you get that? I just bought a 2011 Sport with the 430N but I don't have Travel LInk.

This post has the topic but here are the details. Takes maybe 30 minutes total and key must be set to acc on or engine on so the power doesnt fail to the head unit. You will have a paperweight if you kill the os update mid stream.

Download the image file here: http://www.mediafire.com/?rjw4hyrcaay958k

Burn the image to a CDR using some burning software like ImgBurn

Then follow these steps:

Preperation
1. Turn vehicle ignition ON. LEAVE THE IGNITION IN THE ON POSITION FOR THE DURATION!
2. Remove any USB devices from the radio face plate. (I also removed the iPod in the glove box.)
3. Press the VOL knob to turn the radio OFF.
4. Press "LOAD" and insert DISC (P/N 68141133AA).

Radio Software Update

5. When the prompt "Update from 20.02.01 to 23.04.41" appears, press "YES". Radio will restart.

Progress bars will indicate the status of the software update. Upon completion of the software update, the radio will restart. After about 2 minutes, the radio will prompt for a series of additional updates. (This may take longer than 2 minutes and seem like the radio is frozen, just let it sit...)

Travel Link Database Update
6. When the prompt "Update baseline data files on HDD?" appears, press "YES".

Navigation Software Update
7. When the prompt "A new version of software is detected. Do you wish to update?" appears on the Navigation screen, press "YES".
a. When the prompt "PND Update Completed" appears, press "OK".
b. If the message "PND did not update!" appears, your Navigation software is already up to date. Press "OK".
Completion
8. When the prompt "Update application software from 23.04.41 to 23.04.41" appears, check the version numbers.
a. If the version numbers match (i.e. 23.04.41), press "NO". Radio will complete the update procedure and restart.
b. If the version numbers do not match, perform the Radio Software Update section again.
9. When the prompt "Update baseline data files on HDD?" appears, press "CANCEL" (bottom right corner of screen).
10. Press "LOAD" to remove the DISC and return the DISC to this protective envelope. Press "LOAD" again to close the screen.

Software Update is Complete

730N is the only option for 2012, at least it is in the sport!
