Does anyone know if this works on the Sony headunits? I tried an update once before and it didn't work. :wacko: I'm sure that I read on here that the Sony units cannot be updated.

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!

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.

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 :)
