cc4005 Link in 1st post of this thread. ***NEW MyGIG Software Update RER-REW-REP 2.404***

jwilson2598 I'll look up the link and post it when I get to a real computer. The above linked site is terrible, there's a much better site with a guy who has connections and gets the latest updates direct from Harmon and posts them. The latest software is 2.184 and Gracenotes are 5411.

Can someone please post a link that works for downloading either of these?
Uconnect Software Upgrade Site, though there aren't any updates (yet) for the 2014's.

I am doing a complete restore at the moment to see if that helps.

I have tried different cables...still does it.
Mine has also done that since day one. My IPhone 4S also acts goofy at times.
I just unplug the iPod and replug it in. The IPhone I pick the playlist and Blue Tooth it, but I can only control the phones playlist on the phone.
I have mostly just updated my music on the HD and use the USB to charge with.

Amen. Or SAT preset buttons set to show Artist rather than always defaulting back to channel name.

Agreed, my 730 definitely shows the turn by turn on the EVIC.

The Higher end and more expensive 730's can not display info onto the EVIC and have no plans of doing so.

WaltA Has anyone ever found an in-depth manual for the 730N? I have lots of questions. For example...

Sometimes my phone's signal strength is in blue, and other times in red. What does the color change mean?

Sometimes while my phone is connected, there is a Bluetooth logo shown, and other times, no (though my phone is still connected). What does the Bluetooth logo mean, if not to confirm phone connection?

My kid wants to know what the icon at the top right means? It looks like the front end of three vehicles, the larger one in front and the smallest one in the back.

PS: If I had to do it over again, I would get the 430N. IMHO, Garmin GPS, with all its customizations, is far better. With turn-by-turn displayed in the EVIC, the split screen (map & turns) of the 730N isn't very valuable.

tomthbomb I would do this but there is no way gracenotes will know the early 1970's re-releases of the Texas Outlaw music from the early 1970's that I am addicted to.

JK-linux I'm not RHR/730N fanboy by any stretch of the imagination. That said, it does get me around town just fine and plays mp3's off the hard drive. I don't use some of the other features like streaming and bluetooth and voice commands though. Were I to do it again, I'd do the same thing - buy a refurbished 730N and the MOPAR connection kit to install it; and sell my factory 430N and make $100 when all is said and done. Then again I wouldn't pay $1k+ for ANY in-dash navigation system, regardless of how good it was, unless I made my living with it.

Yes, I've gotten mine to play CDs and switch channels while on Sirius. It's kind of quirky and slow, but does work.
