First I must say this is a very useful thread. I just purchased a 2008 Sahara with the MyGig RER and have a few questions. I am almost positive that it has not been updated but here are some issues I am having.
The disk automatically starts on #10 when I turn on the Jeep no matter where it was when shut off. The disks sometimes won't load and take forever to eject, (these are normal CDs not burned). It also has some HDD loading issues and sometimes will not respond when I am hitting the seek button to change the track.
Are these issues addressed in the updates or should I just go back and tell the dealer to replace it? Can I also update the RER by using the USB drive instead of the CD? Thanks for you help
I have almost the same issues with the 08 i just bought. and it is not keeping any presets or giving me access to the SiriusXM channels.
I have an 09 wrangler with the my gig RER radio and am trying to get the uconnect working. I have never updated the system since I purchased the vehicle and not sure exactly what all I would need to do or purchase aside from the microphone. A little hesitant to download and install from the mygig website especially as they talk all windows functions and Im operating off of MAC. Any and all help would greatly be appreciated. Feel free to post here or send any info to my email (would reach me easier) Thanks in advance for all assistance
Hi i have a REW MyGig that was supplied with my 2008 manufactured Grand Cherokee Overlander. This has a 20GB hard drive in it.
The problem i had was that although I could use my iPhone with the MyGig, it would not sync my address book which is essential - so I had to replace the MyGig with third party unit. I still have the MyGig and would love to reinstall it back into the vehicle.
What I wanted to know, is does this latest software update mentioned in Post 3, fix this problem?

RER / REN gracenotes update
Late 1st Quarter 2012: 4620

RHR gracenotes update

ALL RHR updates both software and gracenotes have been tough for folks to create themselves. Be careful. Ask your dealer to help. That's what they are there for. I can help you if you need help.
What is the year of the vehicle with the RBZ radio? What SW version is in it currently? What is the issue with the Uconnect system?
The Uconnect module is external to the radio, so the radio SW does not have anything to do with the UC SW.

What's the deal with the Sirius xm not showing up?
Anyone have a rbz? What is the latest software? Need something to get my neighbors uconnect working but there isn't much info avail for rbz updates. Mitsubishi dropped the ball.
I just bought a RBZ+RSC radio off Ebay for my wifes JK. It worked fine for about the first 2-3 weeks after installing it. Now some of the time it will start acting up and the screen will go black, then start to flicker and after a while come back on and then work fine for the next 8-10 hours. Every so often when the screen goes black it won't play music but most of the time it does.
Is there an update I can try on it? Or is there something seriously wrong with the radio? Has anyone ever been able to get a radio they swapped into their Jeep repaired or replaced under warranty? My wifes rig is a 2011 with 2 years left.
At best you will need to make sure that the MyGIG you purchased is for the correct Buss speed of your JK, 2010 and up JK's went to "High Speed" Buss computer systems. If the My GIG is a low speed it will not work...I'd call your dealer and give them the part number on the rear of the My GIG and ask them if it's a high or low compatible......
I purchased my MyGIG direct from the dealer so I would get the right one, and have a warranty, (1 year), plus they had to flash program the new one in. Now my VIN on the Jeep website shows the MyGIG as original equipment.
Umm, no it won't. The challenger is actually a Low Speed CAN BUS radio and the Jeep is a High Speed CAN BUS radio.
He is correct on this....I was wrong....they won't work on the older models, all vehicles are goning to be High Speed and/or going to the new Networking to fade away from the older Mercedes Network...sorry...
