    This took way longer than 20 min... also is it possible to dim the screen so it doesn't burn "Update in progress" in the middle of the screen? Is it me or do the interior dimmer/ambient light knobs work now?

    Still better than taking it to the dealer to have done. You can't "burn" an LED display. Those were the days of the CRT.

    Well I could clearly see the ghosted text in the middle of the screen, along with "NO DEVICE" in the upper left corner. With that said, you can absolutely burn in LCD displays... LED just means it's not backlit with CCFL tubes.

    Yes, but apparently only if you have Sprint.

    I gotta disagree. Taking it to the dealer may be the best way to get it done. If there turns out to be a problem of some sort then they own it.

    I can just hear the service guy "You must have done something wrong, we can't get it to work. Our tech guy thinks that maybe you had a virus and it corrupted the file."
    I've been that route before. Now it's the dealer for anything other than oil changes and tires.

    Oh, you can burn a LED.

    Can you please elaborate on that, what does "your phone service" have to do with the car receiving a signal?

    Downside: Plugging in my phone to start CarPlay turns off the bluetooth connection. So when I unplug, it no longer resumes playing music over bluetooth. :/

    Installed the update tonight. First thing I noticed is one issue I had has been fixed. If my radio was off and I selected reverse, the radio would turn on. Now it stays off and a new image is displayed in the drivers display of your vehicle with a representation of where an object is. I'll have to see if the other issues I had have been resolved.

    I did the install tonight also, I am not good with some computer stuff so my brother helped me do it. I formatted my thumb drive in exfat and it wouldn't work, he said it had to be in fat32, so he formatted it in fat32 and re downloaded the files and we went out to the car and it worked. After you do the update and it is done remove the thumb drive and you have to turn car off and back on again for things to be back to normal.

    I did the update last night. exFAT does not work, it's still FAT32. Timed the update, took just over 20 minutes. One issue after the update was the screen image was washed out and Update in Progress, Please wait was burnt into the screen. After about 20 minutes off, the colors were back to normal. Your could still faintly see the wording in the gray of the Nav map. I'm, sure (hoping) it will be totally back to normal this morning. One thing I did notice between this update and the April 17 update was the Chrysler logo after the reboot was missing, Dodge logo only through out the process. Dodge has Ford beat for sure. Updates to the My Sync system in my previous Ford Focus was much longer.

    Does Amy one know what base OS the Connect system uses? Ford is Microsoft based.

    I have a 16 RT and a 17 Scat Pack(new). Both are Chargers with the nav. On the 16 you can voice custom text messages with the mic or use a predefined msg. On the 17 both of the 2 choices only seem to be predefined messages. Does this update allow the custom voice to text feature?
