Thanks for your reply Ogar. On your 08 do you still have to touch the Acceptance Screen to remove it or does removes its self at start up. On my 07 I had to touch it each time I started it, but now with this latest TSB it removes it's self. I just hated to have to touch the screen to accept each time. It was really a dumb requirement. Now I am really pleased with the unit.(MyGig w/navigation & rear seat video)

Guess the only other dumb thing I could complain about is how loud the automatic locks are when the activate. Keep thinking they will wear-in and not be so loud. Are your 08 locks loud too? Maybe they added a 2 cent o-ring to the 08 Nitro (& Jeep Liberty) since no one else here seems to have this complaint.

It still makes me hit the accept button.
Its really an anoying feature that serves not purpose.
If you have any luck getting a dealer to do an install let me know so I can go back to my dealer and question them further

You need to re-read my first post and yes they ordered the revision and installed it under warranty. I did supply the Dealer a printed copy the TSB and they ordered it for me and called when it came in. Could not understand why they would not have it in stock, or why they gave the CD to me, but I am very pleased with this latest revision.

I thought maybe all new 08's might have come from the factory with this up-date since I have not seen anyone complain recently.

THANKS for responding and now you know what to do, too!

GOOD LUCK & Enjoy...

Thanks for your info, so if you have to hit the prompt (as I did), either on a 07 or 08 you don't have the latest update and it is free and covered under warranty. But you do have to ask for it, and if do want it, I would print out the TSB from this Site and ask your Service Manager to order it for you. There were other issues addressed in this latest up-date, so it does not only eliminate the need to touch the screen to remove the message each time you start your Nitro. I would not know why anyone would not want to do this, or why Dodge does not inform all it owners, or why a Dealer would not perform this when you bring your Nitro in for service with out requesting it, or why they would not do this for any car/truck in their stock, or at least when it is sold? It would be good PR for Dodge, and more warranty income for Dealer Service Departments.

Hey Rick, just read your post. I have upgraded to version 9.713. I can't tell you all the specific updates, but the icons on the maps look nicer and have more detail. Also the text is easier to read on many of it's various screens. It's actually a smaller font so more text can be displayed, but whatever font they chose is sharper than before. I only updated a week ago, so I am still learning.

I downloaded this update from the net. Once downloaded, unzipped and loaded to disk, (DVD in my case) it was 413MB of data.

I have seen absolutely no hiccups from this update, but then again I have had no problems with MyGIG at all.

I want to point out something that is overlooked by many. While a stock MyGIG will not allow manual (touchscreen) input to program a destination entry while in motion, I have successfully used voice commands to program a destination more than once while in motion.

Thanks Tim for your info. I was aware of this yet to be approved Factory update and plan to just use their updates under warranty until they no longer service this unit. Maybe this will be the last, and if it is I have no problem doing my own updating (yes I have the DVD too). I have the I-Way 500C portable GPS for my Wife's car and I have updated it twice with a download. It will be interesting to see if the 09 Internet MyGIG version will be adaptable from MOPAR to our units.

Thanks again for your reply!

As MyBluNITRO said the font and menu screens do look sharper and diff. But I find some of the Nav. menu option are a little harder to navigate and set up.


Does anyone know if when you download music if you can give the file a name? I haven't tried to download music to the new one yet but the old one when I loaded music was stored with no artist info? So when you have a few discs loaded you don't know which is which.

CBH, not sure how you were loading your music. The stuff I ripped directly from CD has artist and song names attached. I have also loaded with a USB flash drive after converting the CD to MP3s on my computer. All of those files transferred with the artist and song titles.

If you were to make your own random music CD and/or a random group of music on a USB flash drive without the Artist and song title info., I have my doubts on whether MyGIG could recognize the file and match it up the Gracenotes archive on MyGIG.

After the most recent update, from what I can see, the Artist and song info. is displayed better and more intuitive than ever before.

Yes, there are more layers to go through on the Nav screens, but in the process you have more options. I am going on a 3000 mile vacation Friday. I should have a very good grasp of the new Nav screens when I am done. I do know with the most recent update, you don't have to put the transmission in Park, you just have to be stopped, say at a red light. If, for instance, you are looking for a restaurant using the Points of Interest feature, you can use the touch screen as long as you are at a red light. The second you start moving, you are locked out. Stop again and you are back in business.

Anyone that discovers something really great with the new software should post it here for everyone. I for one like this gadget and want to get all the benefits that I can from it.
