Just got my Sti today (I had it shipped to my vacation home in NC - I couldnt wait ). It came directly from BEL but I want to check the firmware version just to be sure the 33.8 issue has been resolved. How can I do this and what do I hope to see on my unit to confirm it has the fix?
What settings do I need to run on this device? (meaning, I have seen some people run X off and K off, why?)
Also, I will be hardwiring the unit to my new 535i but am wondering how to do that and still be able to mute the device. It came with a hard wire power cord but also came with the cig adapter w/mute button. I'd like to be able to move the RD from my hardwire setup in my car to my wife's non hardwire setup (cig adapter) when I want to. Also, I just talked to my installer who wanted to know if my cig lighter in my 08 535 remained on when my car was off. Apparently, there are some negative ramifications to grabbing power from just any source on this car. There are some type of power monitoring system in these newer cars that will actually shut down a circuit if it sees addtl power on it....Ill know more when i get home from vacation.
