RX8 10.01 Firmware request for keen DIYERS!

Post by RichardK » Sun Nov 19, 2006 4:32 pm

Anyone really keen on DIY...

Could anyone with a 10.01 Firmware head unit who knows how to remove it and doesn't mind opening it please check this:

It seems unlikely to me, but there's a chance - due to the fire, stocking and so forth - that our 2005-built RX8s might have a 2004-made radio with this revision of PCB in it.

It COULD be the answer to iPod integration.

(FWIW, I'm not even 100% sure if our Bose headunits are different headunits, or simply the same hardware with different amps/speakers and firmware options).

I assumed people would have seen that, I'm not taking credit for discovering the Mazda 6 info, just trying to prompt people to help figure out if this is a possible cause of the duff iPod business.

Just noticed these posts .. :) . did you ever hear if the L17 Jumper mod (soldering the link back in ) enables the port :?:

At least I know who makes the HU now ( Panasonic ) Bose just supply the Amp and speakers

I have the 10.01 firmware - but if the solution is the L17 then trying to flash the firmware back down to 9.? won't help
