Xsdbs,

I can't respond to your PM because im not permited yet. I appreciate all the help you've offered. Fortunately, I got on the phone with Dodge Ram and explained the situation and was able to convenice them to approve a replacement module. Also, I was having some problems with my a/c blower motor and was able to get that replaced as well. In the end it all worked out. Even though it sucked at first I ended getting a new module and blower motor for free. I also made sure I had the most up to date software on my module before I left the dealer. Everything works like a champ now.

Don't fully understand what happened during the update process but I got free stuff out this whole ordeal which makes it all worth it.

well cool, glad that you were able to get everything taken care of. I'm not real sure what happened with your module. What I do know is that there has been over 1,200 downloads of that update and no complaints like the one you had. Just glad that you were able to stand your ground and get the dealer to handle it.

For sure. When they told me how much it was going to cost I was like "get every manager down here right now because I'm not kicking in a cent". They eventually feel in line. Again, I appreciate the help. I'm sure it was something I did or the module was bad from the start.

Does this update enable the glove box plug in to charge my iPod? It works great from there, and connects with my nano. It just doesn't charge it. I've downloaded my library to the hard drive anyway, so I don' t want to lose that ( 13 cds with 90 plus songs on them each, took a long time). I would like to charge my iPod out of sight, though.

If you plug in a USB thumb drive, does it light up? Will it play correctly?
What generation Nano do you have?

How can I get the update? I clicked on it from the beginning of this post and it says the file isnt there anymore. My 430N won't recognize my iphone 4s when i plug it into the front usb port. I would like to download all of my music off my phone into the radios hard drive.

Thanks,,,,,,,Jason 216-269-4346 this is killing me

I don't believe the iPhones will do that. You should be able to plug into the USB in the glove box and listen to your music directly from your phone. However if you want that music on the radios hard drive you will have to put it on a memory stick first. At least that's how I remember it.

Jason,
The radio does not support the profile needed for Apple devices, only the Uconnect module does. The front USB connector will not play the media files from the iPod. It will only charge the battery. This connector is used for playing and downloading media files and pictures from a thumb drive.
Apple devices will only play from the remote mounted USB connector in the glovebox.
You'll need to download the iTunes files to a thumb drive from your directory and then download them from there.
