Back to the Connect Nav+/mp3 questions.
(background - 2005 147, Connect Nav+, f/w 4.07)
First off, this thread has been a wealth of information. Now I know why my mp3 CDs do not play.
Anyway, before I start upgrading firmware, I do have a few questions to see if it will be worth my time.
1. Does anyone know if the 5.2 firmware is 'real' and if there is somewhere to obtain it?
2. If so and anyone has tried it, does it offer the benefits people have suspected? Like, restarting where the CD left off?
3. One thing I am not clear on is - with the upgrade, will the factory installed CDC then play mp3's, or only the HU?
4. Lastly for now, if I were to change from the factory CDC to something like the Loudlink box, would this upgrade still be required?
I am thinking that if the factory installed CDC will not play mp3 after the upgrade, I will still lose the ability to listen to CDs I have made, plus use the Nav at the same time.
Again, this was a very informative and helpful thread and I want to thank those who have made the 5.0 and Setup available.
If all goes well, if I go ahead with this, I will post results.
