Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

I just got the file from the link in the original first post. No virus in it - probably just AVG being over-sensitive and giving a false positive, probably due to the way the file has been packed.

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

I also recheck with various AntiVirus software. No virus found. Probably false alarm from free software.

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Decided to post again and add the install instructions.

12.2 firmware is attached to this post. I've just scanned it with Symantec Endpoint Protection before uploading came up clean.


UPDATING PROCEDURE Connect Nav(Italian to English translation)
--------------------------------------
1) By car turn off the Connect from off switch.
2) Insert the software update and wait for the appearance of the window "CD Error".
3) Turn off the Connect from off switch.
4) After a moment, turn the ignition key from Connect.
5) The display shows the message: "FLASHER PROGRAM" with the sequence of operations that are happening.
6) Press in quick succession and without interruption the following buttons: low 3-4-5-6 from the roadside and then the fast forward button, above.
7) A double flash of the keys across the front of the confirmation of the recognition sequence.
8) After a few seconds, the sequence of operations is implemented until loading is complete.
9) The CD is ejected automatically, remove it.
10) The reappearance of the logo of the car, turn on the Connect button on / off.
11) The transaction was completed: Connect is operating.
Where for any reason (eg incorrect introduction of the sequence of keys), the update process fails, the system automatically turns off and on again with no more see the logo of the car.
In this situation (with black screen), type the key sequence of point 6) and wait for the appearance of a status message of the update, in which case the display could delay a few seconds.
Subsequently, the device will repeat the sequence twice to power on / off, and then goes off completely.
It should then start from Step 4).


If anyone does update please post back and give us all an update, ease of install, differences to v9.8 etc.

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Does anyone know if this update is for the Stilo or the Croma or both?

It's been advertised in the Croma section of classifieds for 3 months but it's not in the Stilo section.

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Hi ,

I cant help thinking that this update isnt for the stilo connnect nav.
If you look in stu's post for the translated instructions on line 6 it says to push " Press in quick succession and without interruption the following buttons: low 3-4-5-6 from the roadside and then the fast forward button".
We dont have a low button do we and buttons are they referring to for 3,4,5,6 , the fitted in the croma has those i think.

Cheers

Itailian to English translation might not be very good, perhaps in Itailian it doesnt mean "low"?

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Re: FIAT Connect Nav V.12.2 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Online translators are always difficult to understand, especially for anything technical.

"Low" from the translation could mean the Lower row of 12 buttons. I read on a Dutch or Bulgarian or somewhere Stilo forum a while ago that there's a sequence for the Stilo that involves pressing 3, 4, 5, 6 then "TEL". It said the front panel lights should flash and then an update that had permanently stopped at 50% might continue. I've never seen this confirmed anywhere though. I've never seen a sequence using the FF (>>) button.

@ Keviwal....... I tried the 3, 4, 5, 6, "TEL" sequence on your old dead CN+ last week. The front panel lights flashed, but the update still wouldn't work. I suspect if the process works at all, it has to be done immediately the update fails.

Read the classified ad.

https://www.fiatforum.com/classified...t=21050&cat=57

That says 12.2 is for the Croma, so we're still confused and don't know which is correct.

Davren,

Cheers for trying!!
Are we still on for the end of the month?
I cant help but thinking that update wouldnt work on stilo connect navs.
Why would Fiat release an update for something they no longer supply in in new cars?
Or is it a "hacked version" for another type on connect nav unit?

Cheers for now,
