Hello fellow AVIC enthusiasts!

I was just curious if you've done your upgrade to CNDV-100MT yet?  I should have it by the end of the day, bandwidth permitting of course. waycool

I've heard we lose our fancy XM icons so I'm not sure if I will actually do the upgrade right away, but knowing me, I probably will.

 

Have you tired it?  What are the differences besides a bizillion POI's?

Burning the west now.

Before I go further, I'll do some more reading to make sure I don't brick my unit. I have seen on some boards where they say you can't go back to an old upgrade.  Man that would suck.

I try to live by what Dad always said, "If it works, don't fix it!"

I don't always do so though because I like to update stuff and experiment.

 

Cheers,

Upgrade has been completed.  I see where the graphics are missing but won't complain.  It seems to make the menu a bit snappier.  IMHO the upgrade was certainly a step in the right direction.  While I have not played with the parts of the deck yet, so far so good on CNDV-100MT

Just a quick note.

I was able to Sync the Blackberry up and move over the phonebook.  Really digging the upgrade and speed.

Still running strong.

Curious though, according to the stats for The Garage, there are quite a few coming looking for answers to problems.  It's OK to post here, I've probably been there, done that.wiggle

For those interested, I'll be trying to update to CNDV-110MT and will let you know how that goes.

DONE! wave

Tried the burn on my XP box and it worked.  I don't recall the maps being related to Tom Tom in the past, so I look forward to using the new maps.

Might even be time now to create a new background or two, just need to remember the right size again and find the right pics to start with.

Good luck to you!

UPDATE!

So if your unit starts acting up, don't get discouraged.

I was in a panic when my unit would periodically reboot or take forever to come up only to want the correct disc etc etc.  It was doing everything.  While I did find a guy on Ebay who will fix anything on these for $115, I was not entirely convinced I had bad issues.  Like everyone else, I hit the forums looking for answers and what I saw a lot of, was simply re-burning the disc would work.   I am here to tell you that before you scrap your unit, give a new burn a shot.  My disc never left the unit nor was it abused, but yet it developed some issues.  Just an FYI, hopefully save you some coin.
