Stopped the dealer a few weeks ago and he did the system software update to rel_ A2.20.07.20
the web site said A2.20.18.20 ...the manger said the one he did was later that on the web site
seem to be ok.

Map updates are available.
The map component in the update recently discussed here, A2.20.18.20, (I believe the one that failed to update for you), does NOT contain any new maps. See several posts above for a nice list of what WAS updated.

Yes, the map update (downloaded to USB) was totally separate from the software update (downloaded via Wifi). I have an appointment with the dealer on Wednesday. I will let you know what they say. It is definitely totally dark.

Sparkland, you can’t download the latest update to your USB key again and plug that into your head unit to try the update again?

I could try to update the software via USB, but the head unit is completely dark or dead. Absolutely, no response from the head unit, but thank you for the suggestion.

First did an update over the air - the system prompted me to do so. Then downloaded update on USB and installed on vehicle. All recalls and campaigns were done at the dealership. Week after the update, started losing my FM presets and text messages are not transmitted thru the unit. Phone book needs to be uploaded every time I start the car and no guarantee I won't lose the contacts again mid trip. I never had issues with my head unit until after the latest update. Any advice?
