I didn't have a notice either, I just used the check status tool, and the file info that popped up under the installation bar was the one ending in ED as seen on the last page.

What's the Sync history say? It should list all your updates and what it does.

I've noticed that the Sync History has all of my major installs listed, but doesn't list all of the smaller update files you see in the "Successful Installations" list on the right side of the update page.

That's where I got the xxx-ED from.

I've not been staying on top of these since the "big one." What it did say about the ED was there were updates to the graphics and to the response timing of the touch screen.

One of the last complaints that I still have regarding this system is that after I am done using it during it phone call it will resume the system on an FM channel and not where I was previous (usually AM talk).

Yeah, that irritates the hell out of me too. I'm really hoping that the next update addresses all of these little annoyances. Time will tell.

I don't know how it happened exactly, but after adjusting the speaker balance, all the buttons everywhere turned bright red (they turn back after one press). Really annoying.

how exactly do you run the checker?

I went to SMR, popped in a usb drive (freshly formatted), ran the tool to prep it.. went to my car.. .stuck it in.. it did nothing (except show that it had recognized my thumb drive)... waited like a min, took it out and popped it back in the PC (still on the SMR update page) and it said "no device found".

i looked on the usb and it had a few files on there.

did i do something wrong?

Is three reboots in two months/1,100 miles normal? My car was made in April and i bought in May so I believe I have the latest version. Syncmyride reports version 3.02.

Im tired of having to reset the clock after each reboot. I just wanted to see if this i normal or should i take it in.

Three seems excessive in that time period to me. I've had three or four (don't remember exactly and not counting the ones I've done on purpose to temporarily fix the system) since I installed it in March but it seems that even though we all supposedly have the same system there appears to be a huge range of behavior/issues/stability from owner to owner.

I've never had to reset my clock after a reboot (though I've had to reset DST after a master reset).
