So I was on a phone call, lowered the volume to where you could barely hear, hung up, called again, and the volume was still at that low level. Turned it back up to where I could hear and the person on the other end still heard themselves echo. Maybe a firmware update will help? I have to do this anyway because my nav stuff doesn't show up on the HUD. Hopefully that solves that problem at least.
According to this old thread which you happen to have posted in (I see you've been around for a minute) jbstar had some kind of update done that solved this problem on his 2009. Is the update he speaks of a firmware update or am I misunderstanding. Please let me know. Thanks.
The update is to the firmware. The problem in that thread hasn't been talked about much in the time I've been around and I don't get the impression it's really common. You can definitely check with the dealer though since there seems to be some for of legitimate fix for some problems in 2008+ cars.
Memory failed me; one more proof of my mortality. Ain't life grand?
I knew the 2008 & up didn't require the 2005-7 upgrade but obviously, they still didn't have it right.
Guy - Thank you soo much for finding that thread. I had lost the 'code' needed to read the firmware levels on gen 2 Nav units. This was one of my favorite bits of STS trivia. I hope it benefits another member.
Yeah it's pretty cool. I punched the code in and looked at my various versions of whatever (I don't understand all that computer crap) and they matched yours after your update way back in January of 09.
