This Update is for Bluetooth ONLY.
Bluetooth Version HW200 – SW331
This update will address the issue of the iPhone 5 and or Apple devices running iOS 6 not working correctly with A2DP controls (AVRCP). The iPhone 5 and iOS 6 is not backward compatible with older versions of Bluetooth software in some models. This update has been released by Parrot especially for Advent OE radios ONLY to address this issue.
If you do not have any problem with A2DP controls from your device there is no need to run this update.
DO NOT ATTEMP TO RUN THIS UPDATE ON ANY RADIO OTHER THEN ADVENT OE SPECIFIC MODELS. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE CONTACT ADVENT TECH SUPPORT WITH YOUR MODEL NUMBER. USE OF THIS UPDATE ON NON SUPPORTED RADIOS COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE BLUETOOTH SYSTEM.
To update the firmware:
Remove the current
Start with the key off. (Or Power off if on the bench)
Download the Bluetooth update zip file unzip and save the file @@@DVPBT.par to the SD card.
Insert the updated
SD card back into the radio exactly the same way it came out, Make sure it
Turn the radio on. Wait
for it to boot up. Hit the Menu button, Go to settings and go to the second
page, push “Update system”. Wait for the key pad to show up, then enter 543210
and hit the enter/return key (looks like an arrow)
select UPDATE BLUETOOTH, select yes to update. The update will begin running.
Wait until the update completes and the Update Screen comes up again; do not stop the update,
After the Update Screen returns select EXIT AND REBOOT. When the radio is rebooted the update has been completed.
You’re finished. This process should not take more than about 5 or 10 minutes to complete.
AVRCP Controls will control Play, Pause, Next Song and Previous Song. As many devices including the iPhone and iPod do not have a STOP mode (Only Play and Pause) the STOP button will exit A2DP on these devices. This is normal operation as the Phone or Player is designed this way. If STOP is pressed, exit A2DP and re enter to restart the play mode or press play on your connected device.
