|APPLICABILITY:||All 2015-17MY Vehicles with Fujitsu TEN (F10) 7in. Multimedia Navigation (AVN) & Display Audio Units|
|SUBJECT:||“Gen 2” & “Gen 2.1” Operating Tips|
This bulletin provides information to help diagnose and address different conditions relating to customer concerns which may arise when operating the new-generation “Gen 2” and “Gen 2.1” F10 Navigation and Display Audio systems. We will continue to add more helpful tips to this TSB as they become available.
- From the iPhone Home Screen, select “SETTINGS”.
- Slide “Show Notifications“ button to “ON”.
New incoming text messages will now be displayed on the head unit as they are received.
- Only text messages which are received when the iPhone is connected to the head unit will be displayed.
- Any archived text messages will not be transferred and therefore, cannot be displayed.
- The screen shot examples shown are from an iPhone 5. Other iPhone screen shots may vary based on model and iOS (operating system).
The MAP (Mail Access Profile) does not always allow the user to read and reply (both) to text message content from the smartphone connected to the head unit. Function of MAP profile varies by phone manufacturer. The iPhone provides the MAP (Text Message) feature via Bluetooth. As per Apple specifications, the iPhone’s MAP does not support the reply function, only read is supported.
Inform the customer when their iPhone is paired to the head unit, the head unit will be able to display and read aloud the incoming text messages. However, the “Reply” message function will not be available.
CONDITION #3: Unable to set up the “Destination Address” using voice command.
Voice commands are not spoken with the correct pause, timing or cadence between “House Number”, “Street Name”, “City Name” and “State” which the head unit can understand.
Say the Destination Address with the correct pause, timing or cadence as shown in the example.
Below are examples of incorrect and correct commands:
Incorrect command: 121[pause] Jackson [pause] Street [pause] Trenton [pause] NJ
Correct command: 121JacksonStreetTrentonNJ
THIS SCREEN IS DISPLAYED WHEN THE SYSTEM IS READY TO ACCEPT THE DESTINATION ADDRESS.
The vehicle is being driven in an area where no Sirius XM signal is able to reach the SiriusXM antenna from either the satellites or terrestrial (ground-based) signal repeaters. The SiriusXM feature of the head unit requires a clear line of sight (LOS) path from the satellites or terrestrial signal repeater to the Sirius XM antenna. Obstacles such as trees, tall buildings and tunnels can block the Sirius XM signal and cause Sirius XM radio reception to cut in and out.
Explain to the customer, the vehicle’s Sirius XM Antenna must receive the Sirius XM signal continuously. Any objects that block the signal will cause reception to cut in and out. Vehicle location and traveling direction can also affect the quality of the reception (or signal strength).
CONDITION: #5: A “Phone” button is not displayed on the HOME screen.
- Microphone is not properly connected to the head unit
- Microphone detection wiring (MIC DET) is open

RECOMMENDATION: Explain the following to the customer:
The arrows as shown above appear when the user is searching for places along a previously set route. The color and shape of the arrows indicate the level of detour (how far out of the way) the place is from the current route.
- If the arrow is straight and GREEN (Fig. 1), the detour is minimal and basically on the current route.
- If the arrow is slightly curved and YELLOW (Fig. 2), the detour will be moderate.
- If the arrow is curved and RED (Fig. 3), the detour will be significantly off the current route.
CONDITION #35: After using the Siri feature (2016 MY vehicles equipped with Gen 2.1 Navigation / Display Audio system), the head unit will automatically change from whatever audio source the user was listening to, over to the Bluetooth Audio Source. Why does that condition occur?
CAUSE: It is caused by iOS software versions 9.2 and 9.21.
RECOMMENDATION: Suggest the customer update their iPhone’s software to iOS version 9.3.
|NOTE: The user may need to delete their iPhone’s Bluetooth connection then re-pair the phone after the software update is complete to verify the condition has been addressed.|
