I just picked up a Camaro 2SS/RS. How do I check the hardware version and does it work with the iPod Nano 6th generation?

Not sure about IPOD nano, etc. I'm sure it will work, but can't tell you for fact.

Plug in the USB memory stick, iPod, zune, whatever you are going to use and after it finishes indexing, press and hold the menu button on the right. It will pop up a display that shows what PDIM software hardware version you have.

So it was both the hardware and software update, correct?

Correct. I got that new hardware right there. I don't know if they upgraded that one or not....But, that's what I got. No problem. DA DX might be the latest, but mine works perfectly.

Let us know what happens. I'm sure that as long as you asked for the proper part number, it'll work out perfectly.

Let's hope it goes well for you too. If so, I plan to find a dealer who can do mine when I get home.

I was having trouble with my radio flipping from the last source to the USB when turning on the car, randomly. This was on a bulletin for some other USB audio items... the dealer downloaded an update, but I still have the same HW/SW version

Is the PDIM supposed to Index EVERY time the car starts if the USB drive isnt ever removed? I gave up on my USB drive that supports only 2500 files in the Camaro anyways. Went to an 8GB Ipod Touch and works fine about half the time.

It gets the file index wrong on the Ipod too. Menu > Artists > Album > Song. There will be artists in the albums area and artists in the songs menu. As soon as you click on one of those things that shouldnt be there (like when i see an artist name under a song menu for another band), it takes a dump. The only workaround I've found is to cycle all the way through the artists until it rolls over. The first 5 artists also show up blank on startup. Again, rolling all the way through and over back to the A's the data populates usually.

Awesome!! Glad it's fixed! DB/DB is one we havent seen before, and if its like the rest have been, it supercedes DA/DX. Still havent heard back about the TSB from Cheryl, but will check in with her again this week.

Sounds like the same issue a lot of people have been having. Take it to the dealer and show them the problems you're having. most likely they will recommend replacing the PDIM.
