I haven't had to try updates yet. Transferring a file shouldn't be a hard part in the process. Google Drive should work.

First two need a decryption key. Third needs a login.

They struggle to upload large files, they couldn't get the NAV files up for me, supposed to be on their way via a USB drive. Of course looking at that last link the file is 27k. Now I talked to someone on facebook who got a 1.2 GB upgrade sent to them to fix the temp (which failed to load), I don' tknow..

Hard to not just buy this one right now considering the rave reviews. Although after waiting so long to upgrade radios, I don't see any reason to not wait another month.

It has to have satellite radio. No satellite = no sale for me.

Received new message from Kayhan saying the new v2 is for the commodore and not the G8. so no v2 for U.S. model.

Yeah Sat radio is something i'm going to have to figure out myself, going to have to get the app on my phone most likely. An integrated XM is something i hope someone can figure out soon.

Ah, with the IQ?

My misunderstanding- i took it as v1 and v2 meaning two versions of this exact Kayhan unit for our cars. Thought they improved upon the design or something

I gotta tweak mine some more, I was able to get it sounding good sitting in the garage, apparently it goes to **** once the car is running.

I havent tried mine with it running yet so maybe it will get worse. I hope it will work the same with it running.

He told me the mic in the front of the unit works really well. I haven't tried it yet.

Other then the call issues I'm happy with it, I don't make a lot of calls in the car so it's not put me there yet. If you use bluetooth calling a lot in the car I wouldn't recommend this unit until we figure out if it can be improved.
