Blue&Me 5.5 update confusion...
i'm new to the forum - i have recently purchased a 07 plate 159 1.9jtdm and am loving everything about it - except for the Blue&Me system. specifically my attempts to update the system to 5.5 and thus allow IPhone 3G connectivity for music playback. initially, i was receiving the USB10 error which seemed pretty common from reading the B&M threads so i followed the instructions within to firstly try a different stick (which unfortunately didn't work) and then disconnect the battery -ve terminal for about 10 minutes and try again. however, when i now try to update, the system no longer sees the USB sticks and will not automatically kick into the update? when i try to go through the B&M menu system to manually force an update, i'm told by the system that an update is in progress and to wait for the next message - however, after a couple of minutes the next message i get is a system configuration error???
i've spoken to my local dealer about this (Motorvogue in Northampton) and they have stated that my car is too old to have 5.5 installed and will need a new convergence unit to resolve the issue - at a cost of over £200!!
has anyone else seen this error before and know a way to apply the update? this is spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise awesome car.
