i just had the muting problem with mine yesterday - one week after having installed 9.807.
the radio worked fine, until i stopped and turned off the ignition. when i got back in and started driving, no audio would come out of the mygig. i pulled over, turned off the ignition, then started it again and the sound was back.

I lost all the music on my HD, not a big deal but a pain. Also it sync’ed my contact list from my iPhione but not the addresses (just the name and number). Kinda lame but maybe that's a bluetooth limitation.

I heard of this happening, but most people say the music magically reappears later.

I needed to reload mine so they play the tracks in the right order anyway. I drove it for 2 hours right after the install and they never came back.

I'm new to this forum, so be gentle - how do I get the new upgrades from whatever source to my Jeep? I've got SD cards up to 2 gig, USB cables, an SD to USB adapter, but now what? My concern is that the nav system works now, and i don't want to screw it up or take several hours fixing/loading it.

You just need to burn it to a cd. I've upgraded mine about 4 different times now and no problems. Don't swet it. I was scared the first time too, but it's worth it.

Just follow the link above, download it and follow the instructions. Here's a caption from them.

Install and burn procedure:

Unzip it and burn it to a CD with rer_9.807 as the CD label.

Then when you insert it into your CD player in the MyGig it should start the update process, select yest to upgrade from Vers 9.XXX to 9.807

It will take about 15 mins and once done it will promp to update from 9.807 to 9.807 press NO and remove CD

THATS IT..>ENJOY

Does anyone actually have this working in their '09 JK?

I just picked up my Unlimited Rubi on Saturday, and of course this is of interest to me. I've seen a lot written about ipod support happening in the 2009 model year Mygig Navi radios, but I have yet to hear that it actually works as described.

Has anyone actually gotten direct iPod integration with their 2009 RER using this serial port?

If so, what is the correct part number for the ipod connector?

Thanks

Don't know the part #.
But it should be part of the wiring harness for the mygig.
I'll try and find it later.
I do have it working correctly. Not as great of an interface as the iPod, but much better than trying to use an iPod while driving.

And when it doesn't load, you are screwed. The radio doesn't work, the nav doesn't work.:pissed:

Oh, and the Jeep dealer can't help you, at least on a Sunday morning.

Jeep reloaded the MyGig with the new software, my wife had to take time off work to get it done:pissed:

I think it may have had something to do with the size of the file, over 300 meg for the zip version, over 450 unzipped.
