PDIM / USB port firmware update done in Houston?

Has anyone in the Houston area had the software updated that runs the PDIM / USB port? Most of us are running version CC from the factory but the latest is CE.

I'm trying to find a dealership in Houston that has successfully done this already so I don't have to hand-hold them through the process.

If you have no idea what I am referring to then you are probably still running the factory version with all of problems/defects it comes with.

My USB port hasn't worked since the day after I picked up my car on October 17th. I have a local dealer here in Lufkin I was going to wait until 1st oil change to get looked at. It is as if the car doesn't even recognize it has a USB port - BROKEN!

I'm still looking as well. just don't go to Champion, or you'll get it back not updated & On* not working on top of that. It's been a month and they haven't even fixed my On* problem.

Ok, I'll skip Champion then. Thanks for the advice.

Hmm, guess I'll find out if Classic can do it without messing things up. I called and they didn't seem to know if they could do it or not.

I'll ask my salesman tomorrow if they know how to do it if I can remember to call him. I have version CC as well. I really haven't had any issues other then one time I plugged my flash drive in after I started the car and it didn't recognize it. So what all updates are included in the latest version?

There are fixes for many different things in the latest version.

Quote:
Part Number CVN Description
Latest---> 20893390 000059A7 New software for improved robustness; also fixes "Done" button when user device contains no audio files.
20861681 0000A80A New software for improved operation including proper handling of WMA DRM music, addition of the play/pause button and RSA support, and improved Zune/PFD connection robustness.
20840959 0000A24C New software to address: USB sorting/indexing issues; Bluetooth interface/implementation improvement; Apple iTouch implementation/interface issues
20824078 0000EB10 Operating system
For most of us, we are still on the original Operating system release or maybe the first update version. For me, I want fixes for the Zune support (mine randomly disconnects) and for the USB indexing issues (song info incorrect or not updating or always starting on the same song, even when it wasn't the one playing when the car was shut off). Occasionally, the USB device is not found but I'm not sure if that is in this latest release yet or not.

Under the main PDIM Software update thread, codeman (on page 13) responded to one of my posts with:

So, it sounds like your dealer may not be aware of how to update your car in the first place.

And, if you're having this problem, they should have no problem charging the time back on warranty and giving you the update. If you have any problems with the dealer, please give this number a call - 1-800-508-3060. If you still don't have any resolution after contacting this number, please let me know.
maybe this can help you when you're talking to the dealerships. If you find one, let me know. I'm thinking about going to Westside Chevy today (since I bought my car there) and see if they can fix my On* issue and get the update put on. Damn Champion service tech won't respond to my e-mails or messages. The On* communication module has been ordered over a month ago and hasn't arrived yet. It was directly ordered from On*.

I currently have a case open with GM because the service dept. I went to guaranteed me they had done all the updates they could (after two days) and did not update the PDIM from CC to CE. They didn't even know how to check. This seems to be a problem affecting most dealers and hopefully GM will take steps to fix this. I know Codeman71 on a similar thread is doing all he can do to keep us informed. IMHO we need to keep nudging GM customer service.

Well, I just talked to the Service Director at Champion and he told me that they had updated one Camaro. He said that the guy who was working on mine thought I had brought mine in to get it updated already and I told him nope, haven't even received a phone call about it. He's also looking into my On* communications module order and finding out what the hold up is on that. So maybe that's good new for all of us on the PDIM update at Champion. I'll keep you posted.

I went by Buckalew Chevrolet in Conroe this evening. I talked to the service manager and he told me they have done some of the updates to the Camaro's PDIM. He said they can do it, but they would want to make sure the right tech guys are there when it's done so it's done right. I'll be setting up a appointment to have it done in a few weeks and he will have the right guys there to update the car. Give them a call if you can't find another dealer that can do it.

Which Champion? I had mine done at Gulf Freeway. Now mind you I had to walk them trough the update numbers on the site but aftyer they found what to do the update was done and no issues. I usually go through Jay Dockery but I was going through another guy on this and I can not remember his name. I will try to look it up. This was done back in September and have had no issues and my ipod does not come on everytime I start the car.

Champion Chevy off of HWY 6 (South of I-10). I talked to their service director and he told me they have the update figured out and already did one Camaro. They're just waiting on my On* communications module to come in so they can do it all at once.

Looks like I need to pay a visit to one of the Champion dealerships then. I dropped my Camaro off at Classic this morning to have them do the PDIM update plus the HVAC/Spoiler TSB and check out a clunk noise I heard when I hit a speed bump at the wrong angle. They called me around lunchtime and said that they don't have the right equipment/software to be able to do the PDIM updates yet....so I guess I'll bring it into Champion.

Champion updated my PDIM and also did an HVAC update that was necessary. So you're good to go, to go there.

Did Champion take care of any other issues for you?

My dealership service dept seems pretty Camaro clueless, which is unfortunate, since I had such a good experience buying the car from them.

I need to find someone who can adjust the ABL on the driver's side (not as bright as the passenger) and who can adjust the parking brake without making it too tight or too loose. If they can do the PDIM update at Champion I hope they can handle this stuff as well.

I'm sure they can. My On* module went out and I spoke with the service director directly and he got in touch with On* asking them why it hasn't been shipped yet since it was ordered a month ago. They are back ordered. All their parts go directly to GM for the production line. So, the service director contacted GM and had them send me a module directly off of the line they'll figure your stuff out and fix it.

how to tell what the current version is

Hi!

I have a 2010 Equinox, and am unable to play DRM WMA files via USB with any of the players my family has. Is there some way to know what version of firmware the radio has, and verify that the version mentioned on this site is a later version?

in the camaro, when you have your usb stick in and playing songs from it, hold down the menu button until the version pops up. you have to hold it continuously to read it.

which version do I have

I followed the procedure, and this is what it said:

Version

HW ID: CC
SW ID: CE

The question I wanted to ask is whether this is the latest or not. I.e. does the update change one or the other or both of the values above. I am especially interested to know if there is a later version that will fix the issue I have playing WMA DRM audio via the USB interface from our various Sansa MP3 players. Non-DRM WMA and MP3 files play fine. WMA DRM music will display the song title, but won't start playing it.

For the record, I've tried a Sansa E260, Sansa Fuze and Sansa Clip. All were in MTP mode.

I am really hoping that I just need this update:

20861681 0000A80A New software for improved operation including proper handling of WMA DRM music, addition of the play/pause button and RSA support, and improved Zune/PFD connection robustness.

Scratch Davis Chevrolet (610 South Loop @ Kirby) off the list of dealerships to go to for this. I just spent an hour there after I was assured they knew how and could do the PDIM update. In reality, the tech and Service Manager didn't have a clue how to do it. All they kept telling me was that they updated all the software for my car and there was no PDIM update available. Ugh...I give up. I'll take my warranty work to Champion on Hwy 6 from now on. It's out of my way but if they can do the work, I don't mind.

I had mine in the shop last week to fix the rattle in my window and told them to do the PDIM update on mine. The guy had it written down when I took it in and when I picked it up, the PDIM update wasn't on the work order. I have to take it back in now anyway after I saw this thread" GM bulletin: HVAC system reprogram / rear spoiler repair / engine harness inspection"
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44289

Mine VIN is just 34 cars from not needing this done. I already took care of the spoiler bolts the first weekend I had it. I'm letting the dealership take care of the other 2 items.
