Let us know how you get on :)

It just states 2008 and onwards , so it should work with Sony if its build date is after 2008

:) Just done the update! :)

First of all I followed the instructions on the website and surprise, surprise it didn't work. Just came up Update Failed in the radio display

So I had a look through the FAQ on the update website, and it turns out that in some cases you have to delete all but two of the files from the USB stick. You have to make sure that the only two files on the USB stick are:

8M5T-14D511-AU.BVC
8M5T-14D511-AU.VBF

All of the other files are for other languages, so not needed. Tried again:

The update takes around 20 minutes, and is well worth doing. I can now stream music over bluetooth from my phone, couln't do that before, and no need to use the crappy Ford Y cable when connecting my iPod, the Apple cable now works!

that's odd I looked in my usb stick and there is no files ending in " AT" ([color=#7A7A7A][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][size=3]8M5T-14D511-AT) [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#7A7A7A][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][size=3]*you mention AU but in faq it states AT is english?[/size][/font][/color]

Yeah, the FAQ seems to be wrong there are no files in the zip file that end in AT. There is 2 that end in AU, I deleted everything off the usb stick other than the AU files, and it worked.

ah I see , I may just keep all files on the stick then as I last time I updated I think I kept all files on it.

Hi All,

I have just come accross this and I'm about to do the update on my system but I just have a question that I'm hoping some one can answer or help me with....

When my iPhone connects via Bluetooth to the system it Autoplays my last song/podcast that I listened to via the iPod app....does anyone know of a way to stop this from happening as it really drains by battery and is annoying :( any help that anyone can give would be appreciated and with a solution for either a stock iOS5 or a Jailbroken solution.

Cheers :)
jbeer
Got this all sorted and the update cured my Bluetooth autoplay issue :)
jbeer
Just in case anyone needs to know there has been another small update release (November '12)
