"Sync My Ride's" update is outa sync!

It has told me that I had "The best & latest" since I got my car, Ok just been 2 mo. But the last update was when the car was built :/
Then I go get the TSB 13-09-22 and get an update
So much for that site for any real info on us plain Sync folks anyway.
I had to specifically ask for the TSB to fix mu USB drive from defaulting to line-in to get it done.

I just like to stay on top of things and thought the Syncmyride site was a good idea, but they don't seem to wanna help me "Sync" with the latest software they have

My car defaults to line-in, when using USB or Bluetooth audio (iPhone 5). So this TSB fixed the issue with USB? How about Bluetooth audio?

So far it's fixed the USB, never tried the BT audio but need to give it a shot just to see.
As far as USB mine would go to line-in about once a week before, since I've only had the car back a couple days it's still out there.

I don't know if the "Sync" versions match between touch & non-touch models. I have the mid range 6sp non touch radio.
My current version is DG1T-14D544-AE , GEN1-4.2.1.F

My car came with
DG1T-14D544-AC, Gen1 - V4.1.2.F

I used the USB update tool a few months ago, and the SYNC support site says my car has the latest version.

Could you double check and confirm your version info--I'd hate to go through the hassle of a dealer visit if not necessary? TIA

I am going by the syncmyride sites info on my sync version, it did change after the TSB was performed. Was DG1T-14D544-AC ,GEN1-4.1.2.F originally.
So that seems to say that the sync versions are the same on any radio.

Good info.

I'm running same version as your original version, so hopefully your new version continues to work properly. I'm going to give it a week or so before I take the car in, to ensure your fix really took (like you, mine defaulting to line-in doesn't happen every time). If the fix doesn't stick, please let us know so I don't make a wasted trip to the dealer.

Well so much for that, went back to line-in tonite. Oh well, at least it IS up to date FWIW.
Might try a different flash drive, using a Lexar 32GB nano drive now but got a PNY 16GB "normal" sized drive to test drive just to see if it matters.
I just like the tiny ones because you don't have to worry about breaking anything because of it sticking up in the console. If the full size 16GB works I'll get a 16GB nano, maybe it has to do with the size of it (capacity, not physical).
