Stick the px3.img file on an empty USB drive, plug it into the radio, wait for it to prompt you to update and hit ok. It will eventually prompt you to unplug then reboot itself.

So what exactly is supposed be different about the screen brightness? I havenít noticed any difference, yet anyways.

I asked them about the dimmer shortcut in the top bar working for the night setting (or maybe even both) instead of just the day setting. I wonder if that's it.

"To have a different 'home page image' than the 3 cars built in (like how I have the Holden logo) you need to create a 740px * 313px PNG file with transparent background. Name it ZXWLOGO.png and using the built in file explorer copy it from a usb to the sdcard folder. Then reboot the head unit."


So, if you want to use a photo of your car, you will need to use photoshop or another similar program to create a file in the above size, drop in a photo of your car you want to use, "cut out" your car, delete the background, and save it as a PNG file.

I am thinking of doing mine with an Arrowhead or the "Pontiac G8" logo with the silhouette of the car

Yeah mine is still doing the same thing also, it connected on it's own after a few minutes of driving this morning.

A bit off-topic but.... does anybody know if there is a way to get a song list while playing music over Bluetooth? Instead of using the phone to find a particular song.

THAT'S the fix.


Seriously though, that's a pain in the arse. Still waiting on the satellite integration, which I think they will work on once they get these kinks worked out.

Here’s what I have noticed. If you turn the key to the first position, “accessory” and leave it that way for around 3 to 5 seconds. Then if you turn it to the second position “run“, it’s all good.

Very strange!

I updated mine last night. I hadn't done any other updates. The temp is now actually Fahrenheit. I still had to press something to get the temp and hvac to update, but it doesn't bother me much. Main temp control is still on the left and the right cars were available for the home screen. The screen brightness seems to act like it did before, so I don't know what was fixed there.
