Blaupunkt New York 830 firmware upgrade

Bluetooth on New York 830 stopped working.
I decided to upgrade unit it can probably fix it.

Here is how you do that.
First, goto their site http://www.blaupunkt.com/us/support/car-audio/downloads/updates/?suche_id=&suche_name=new+york+830&tx_ddfservicedoku_pi1%5Bview%5D=list&id=136&no_cache=1&formSent=1&L=1#c635

In Israel they install New York 830 World model (1011203821).
Proof

But actual firmware files under the link of EU model (1011203820) as you will find.
The latest, as of today Feb 21 2015 is update of 2014-10-20 (backuped at my Dropbox).

Most noticeable changes are besides improvements and bug fixes since June 2013:

  1. show version info in menu
  2. low voltage stable (avoids restarting while starting engine) - this was fucking annoying! you enter the car, radio start playing, you listen music and when you start the engine it was rebooting again!
Modules upgraded as follows:
MPU: v0.04B.2.13 > v1.04
MCU: v2.29 > v2.36
Bluetooth: HW05-SW01.34.00 > HW05-SW01.57.00

 When you perform upgrade, please read attached instructions before. Because there is strict upgrade flow, not as shown on display! This is the correct sequence of modules to upgrade:

1 MCU
2 MPU
3 Bluetooth

For upgrade, you will need SD card in slot where navigation card is inserted on front panel.

Format the card and extract files like said in instructions, put it in, reboot and press open navigation app. You will see this screen.

Remember, the upgrade flow!
Do each one step by step. MCU and MPU upgrades quickly, bluetooth will take 5-10 minutes.



After upgrade you will be able to see software info from menu

You will need to setup your unit again because factory reset was applied. Control from steering wheel also should be re-set.

Update was easy bu it didn't fix my bluetooth issue :-(
And another issue added that I can't delete my phone pairing from connections.

I've contacted Blaupunkt's support. They told to downgrade bluetooth module only with this file.
That helped to remove existing pairings from NY, but not to connect my phone again to NY.

My phone see NY via bluetooth, starting pairing. You can see that NY also get pair code but stuck in the middle and never finishes.

After downgrade and removing pairing, I've upgraded bluetooth only module again to latest 01.57.00 and same issue persist. Support guys told me to visit local repairhsop.

In Israel we got only one Bosch (Bosch owned "bluedot" until 2009) partner called Ledico Ltd.

I haven't time to contact them yet. So it will be continued...
