    Title:Updating Navigation Radio UYS for Navigation Radio/Clock Concerns

    Date: 03/18/2013
    To: All OSCs
    From: SPNA
    ______________________________________________

    Updating Saab Navigation Radio (UYS)

    In order to help those customers with Navigation radio concerns that do not wish to have their radios repaired permanently by using United Radio we will make the update available through IRIS.

    NOTE: The OSC will be responsible for any issues that may arise during or after programming. This update may not repair the condition and or the condition may return at a later date. The only option left at that time is the radio repair process through United Radio.

    Using a 512 MB or larger USB memory stick inset the drive into an available USB port on your shop computer. (Make sure you use a blank or memory stick that has been formatted).

    Make sure your memory stick is completely blank by (RIGHT) clicking on the memory stick Icon in my computer. Then select "Format" (NOTE: This will erase all data on the drive). Use the default setting for the formatting FAT32 and quick erase. Click OK

    Once the memory stick has been formatted, load the NAVIGATION software ONTO the usb DRIVE. When the transfer is complete safely remove the USB stick by right clicking the ICON again and selecting "EJECT". You should receive a message telling you the drive is safe to remove.

    Connect the Midtronics® PSC 550 Battery Maintainer (SPS Programming Support Tool EL-49642) or an equivalent to the battery of the vehicle.

    Put vehicle in the "Accessory" position. Press and hold START button for 10 seconds do not put your foot on the brake pedal during this time.

    Turn the Navigation Radio on before inserting the USB drive into the usb port in the center console.

    With the vehicle switch in the Accessory position and the radio on, insert the USB drive into the center console USB port.

    You should see a screen similar to this when the download starts





    Select OK to continue.


    The radio will display the title: "Program Update" along with warnings not to interrupt power or remove the media. A bar graph will form indicating progress and an "OK" button will appear. PRESS the appropriate radio button or area of the screen to activate the "OK" command and begin programming.




    A status bar indicates progress.

    Important: DO NOT cycle the ignition even if the view screen indicates to cycle it. At the conclusion of the USB drive downloading to the radio, installation of the programming will automatically begin as indicated by the white progress bar below. If the view screen instead remains blank for more than 40 minutes, you may then cycle the ignition. This will reinitialize the programming event. Do not remove the USB flash drive.

    After the USB programming has completed the screen will go blank. (On the SRX the screen will also lower). It is not necessary to observe the entire programming process. Once the screen has gone blank, a white outline bar graph will appear. (Not visible on SRX due to the screen being lowered) The downloaded programming will automatically install. Once this progress bar fills, the screen will go blank and USB programming will be complete.

    When the programming event has completed, the radio will display: Download Complete and the version number U145

    Turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds.

    Remove the USB flash drive.

    The vehicle MUST now be calibrated.

    Important: After completion of the USB programming event, but prior to the initialization of SPS programming, the radio will display a Cadillac splash screen if operated. This is a normal condition. Completion of the SAAB SPS programming below will restore the radio to the proper splash screen for the vehicle being serviced.

    Return to the SPS programming screen. Select: J-2534 MDI from the Select Diagnostic Tool and Programming Process screen.
    Select: "RAD: Radio Programming"

    You must now select the proper choices for the build of the vehicle you are servicing. Refer to the vehicle SPID label or the vehicle build information through GWM for the specific RPOs the vehicle is equipped with.

    9-5 WIS File path for whole vehicle RPO list
    9-5 (9650) / 2010 / General / General / Technical description / RPO Code List
    9-5Service Parts ID Label (SPID)
    The vehicle service parts identification label is located in the rear compartment under the spare tire cover. The label is use to help identify the vehicle original parts and options.

    9-4X WIS File path for whole vehicle RPO list
    9-4x / 2011 / Service / Saab Service US/CA / Technical data / RPO Code List
    9-4X Service Parts ID Label (SPID)
    The vehicle service parts identification label is located in the rear compartment under the right rear floor compartment cover. The label is use to help identify the vehicle original parts and options.

    Once you have selected the proper vehicle options, you may initiate SPS programming. Upon completion of this step, the radio is updated.


    Important: The navigation radio will be returned to factory default values during this upgrade.
    • Important: Clock functionality may be temporarily hampered after updating until a GPS signal is established. If your buildings service area inhibits GPS signals, the vehicle should be moved outside to an unobstructed area prior to returning the vehicle to the customer.

    I'm wondering the same thing.

    Are there any map updates or do those somehow occur automatically?

    Map updates are "manual" updates. You need to buy a disc from GMNAVDISC.COM per the 9-4x manual. Unfortunately they don't have Saab 9-4x listed. However I did get a response from Saab Parts NA a while back saying we could use the 2011 Cadillac SRX disc. see -> http://saabworld.net/f141/dvd-what-c...my-9-4x-25376/

    Good to know I have been way to busy to look at anything but I am sure this would work.

    I heard they did for the NG9-5, but I can't find the link right now. In USA, NG9-5 and 9-4X are the same disc. Perhaps it is the same in Europe? I'll keep looking..

    the maps are not the problem the hardware in combination with the source codes are the problem, there has been a world wide search up to the engineers in Mexico, denso (the builder of the hardware) navteq (navigation software) we have tried with cadillac europe and opel , all have the same systems but no change all due to the source code. but there looks to be a break thru witch is going to be tested shortly, it is going to be at a hefty cost but it will get it working. as soon as i have a update i will let you know also on the exact cost and availability . lets keep our fingers crossed.
