I was told today by the GM Engineer working on these issues that the new PDIM software release won't be available until mid-July.

Any updates on a new software version for this? It's been a long time and I find it very strange that they would allow the latest iPod players (ie iTouch 3G) to not be compatible and having major display issues.
Thanks.

i was dissapointed. after contacting my dealer to let them know that the new pdim replacement did not fix the issue, i mentioned that i read in the forums that a new update should be available june/july n if they could notify me when it is available.
they said no.

i think im gonna contact gm this week n see what they have to say.

Not to say that you're inconsequential but, they've got better things to do than call people up to let them know there's a software update to a module in your car. If they did that for everybody all they'd be doing is calling people. I'm sure somebody will post here when it's available. Does it suck that the firmware is kinda janky? Yes it does. Can you still use it to play mp3s on a usb drive? Can you still listen to music through the regular AUX jack? Just use those options until they sort it out.

Oh BS. If there's an easy fix- NOTHING EASIER than upgrading software- the dealers ought to not only know about it, they ought to perform the upgrade at the first sign(s) of trouble. I had them check mine- current SW:CC- because my iPhone (3GS) does odd shit like:

A) sometimes fail to connect at all when first plugged in
B) sometimes connects but doesn't play, then does, then sounds like a record skipping when manually advancing to the next song(s)
C) will be playing just fine and all of a sudden stop and give me a display error that there's no readable data (or something to that extent)

They came back with I'm supposed to put the iPhone on airplane mode when using it. WTF does that have to do with anything?

You misunderstand my point. I agree that if there's an easy fix the dealers should give you a free upgrade. With all the vehicles that a dealership sells though you can't possibly expect them to contact every single person who has a minor upgrade/update to a non-essential component. Hell, they won't contact you if there's a service bulletin. Why would you think they'd contact you for a PDIM software update?

Airplane mode is how it's supposed to be used. Regardless of you believing you should have to or not, that's how it's meant to be used. If you don't follow the directions, that's on you.

Why? What difference does Airplane Mode make? Besides which, the manual also makes a big deal of the Bluetooth integration for phones and the ability to play music that way as well, which could not be done via Airplane Mode. All Airplane Mode does is shut off the wireless signals, none of which should interfere with the car's ability to work, since it's bombarded by wireless signals from outside anyway. Airplane Mode is one of those things companies use as a magic incantation when you call to complain because they know almost no one uses it, so they can put you off and make you call again by claiming it's vitally important.

This thread has any number of posts from someone who worked/ works on the code for the radio in the car. I don't think any of them mention Airplane Mode when discussing bugs.

Agreed. Airplane mode shouldn't mean squat when you look at its actual function. Besides, someone's really going to tell me that I have to, in effect, turn off my bluetooth rendering the phone "part" useless so I can use the iPod "part" without issue? You really think the GM engineers (or Daewoo or whomever) are that stupid?

I will admit, I haven't tried keeping airplane mode on all the time in the car to see if it eliminates the issues I listed above. My bitch is simple- update the damn software and take that possibility out of the equation.

Try it in airplane mode. If it doesn't work then you have a very serious and valid gripe. I understand what you're saying about how airplane mode shouldn't matter. My point is, that's how it's spec'd out in the service bulletin. If something doesn't work by not using it as is directed then I'm sorry but, that's on you. It's like getting pissed because the frozen pizza you bought that specifies cooking in the oven turns out like shit when you cooked it in the microwave.

Can I get my Blackberry Bold 9700 to play Pandora through the radio using Bluetooth or is there a PDMI update coming out for that soon?

This is the problem in a nutshell:

I took my car in for it's annual state inspection today. Yes, it is one year old.
It went in with software version CC.
Left the car at the dealer most of the day. The repair service order says "customer requested PDIM software update". It says they did it.
The car still has software version CC installed on it.

I want the new version so I can stop having to futz around to use my Zune. The dealers don't know what they are doing when it comes to computers and software.
We need a way to DO THIS OURSELVES.

GM:
Please help!!!!!

It not rocket science (well maybe alittle ).

heres a workaround: go into the album or whatever, if its not showing properly, press back and go back in, rinse n repeat (usually by 3rd time max its showing me what i wanna see)
Im having the same issues. Only on my ipod touch and iphone. I have an old Ipod nano that has no problem at all. It seems to be a problem with devices that are running the iOS. Every menu I go into has entries from the previous menu that I was in instead of what should really be there. Mine will also lock up the stereo after a while and I wont be able to use any aux music unless i turn the car off for at least 5 minutes.
really is pissing me off.
