For what it's worth, the version I have in my 2013 is Gen1 V4.1.2.F.


Also, a really dumb question... but what exactly is the point of applink? The music player on my phone already responds to the steering wheel/dash controls. Does applink give me some other functionality?
its more for apps like pandora, i heart radio, sync destinations, etc.
with the music apps it will show the songs and artists while being able to change the station with your voice instead of using the phone. The one thing I would like is the destinations app can be used to set up a route with your saved places instead of through the services menu which i think is a pain in the butt and only understands half of what I say...getting sick of yelling yes three times to acknowledge the city and state. anyways with applink you can use destination to start a route of find out if there is traffic on the way home without out going through extra steps or using your phone and i am all about being hands free
