Hi -- just picked up my first Viper, a 2005 roadster, about a month ago. I'm loving it and working on a few upgrades.
The first was to pull out the RBQ radio and replace it with an RB1 that I got out of a 2005 PT Cruiser from a wrecking yard. It appears to work just fine except when it comes to the Nav dvd: For that I purchased a disc off of ebay, version AI, thinking that the later the version, the better. Here's the ebay link if it matters:
The back of the disc appears to be in good shape, no major scratches, etc.
The first time I inserted the disc into the RB1, it flashed a message to the effect of "preparing to update software" and then put a progress bar up with "please do not shut off the engine". The progress bar sat there at the very beginning for a good 15 minutes and then, finally, began progressing across and appeared to complete successfully. After that, the nav screen came up with a map, showing the car on the right road and moving in the right direction, and all appeared to be good.
Then after shutting off the car for a few hours, it now gives a "map dvd read error -- eject and re-insert" message after the nav button is pushed. Upon eject / insert, it says "resetting unit in preparation to use navigation" (or something like that... all these messages are just from memory) and after a few minutes, gives another "map dvd read error" message.
Any ideas on what's wrong? RB1 bad? Disc version incompatible? Something else??
Help!!! : )
