Firmware Upgrade for RC350 / RCF

Just got my firmware update on Wednesday, and this is what they fixed:

NAV system locking up
iPod issues
Bluetooth connectivity for Android and iPhone's

If you are experiencing these issues contact your dealer and ask for the update. It won't be released until September, but they will do it before if you complain about these issues.

Yep, it's Phoenix, but at least it's a dry heat compared to Virginia. When I was stationed there it was so humid in the Summer.

I couldn't imagine living in the intense desert heat of Arizona. I'm a true Canadian.

Were you experiencing all those problems before the update?

Yea I don't like the intense heat either, but it is a dry heat...LOL I really couldn't stand shoveling snow any longer or having Winter last forever, and then having my vehicles rust out because of road salt. At least here once the Sun goes down it's not as bad, and I don't have to shovel snow. I do use the Remote Start every day in the Summer, and I have a parking garage at work so it is not sitting in the Sun all day. I can also drive my cars all year round without having to put it away for the Winter.


I didn't see any issues with the NAV or iPod, but was constantly losing my Contact list even after it said it downloaded them. After the update I lost it again this morning.


Then I thought I should un-pair the phone and re-pair it, which is what I just did today. We'll see how that goes.

PETE:
Once again your posts offer us great service and advice, and thanks for being the beta tester on this firmware update, which I will ask for the next time I bring my RC in for anything.
Happy Motoring.
PS: I spent a week in Phoenix in July one year, and it was quite warm. Actually, it was unlike anything I had previously experienced. I imagine it's one of the few places where the remote start app gets used a lot in the summer months.

Same here. What color is your ride as I've only seen two others in Gilbert since I got mine in December? One USB and one Molten.
