    Step 1: How to find your display model #

    Select the Three Vertical Dots
    Select System Information Icon

    If DEA601 is listed anywhere under Software Version, then the unit is a DEA601, otherwise it is a DEA600, regardless of the Model Version number. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you use the correct download for these systems.

    Step 2: Download software update file

    Step 3: Save the image file to a USB key

    • Please note that the USB key size must be at least 1GB or bigger
    • The USB key must be formatted to FAT32
    • Download time will vary based on your network speed.

    Step 4: Insert the USB KEY to the Radio front USB port.

    Turn the ignition and radio on and wait up to seven minutes for the update to start. The update process will only take a few minutes after it starts. As soon as you see the “Installing system update…” message, wait 5 seconds and then remove the USB thumb drive. If you do not remove the thumb drive, the display will get into a loop where it continuously installs the update.

    Step 5: Update process should only take a few minutes. Once complete the Display unit will reboot.

    Step 6: Once the Display unit is updated, it will automatically update the Radio unit software.

    Step 7: To verify the update was successful check the version number under Software Version (similar to step 1).
