    Ok - I told my buddy about this update and we brought both our RRs today for the upgrade.

    I got a call from the dealer this afternoon - the cars aren't ready because the techs are having problems uploading the new software on both 06 vehicles. They are calling LR Tech support on the issue and we'll know more tomorrow.

    I'll let you know outcome tomorrow.

    You may want to give the dealers some time to sort this one out. Seems as if LR tech line is having some trouble as well getting the new software to configure. Will keep you posted.

    Back in late October 07 the same upgrade TSB was issued in Europe, and then "recalled" a short time later due to technical difficulties in upgrading some modules. Since the TSB came out just a couple of weeks ago here, you'd think Land Rover would have figured this one out by now. Don't their people talk to our people?

    The key is recalled due to technical difficulties with some of the modules. That is exactly what is happening here. It can be done, just a little more than what it says.

    Since they charge by the hour, I think I will wait until they work out the bugs.

    Upgrade completed. Works as described - glad to see contacts pop up on the display. Worth the upgrade. Dealer did an excellent job.

    They actually had a problem with my BT module and replaced it . As for the cost, I was not charged by my dealer for the upgrade. My dealer did a great job and I'm very happy. So I may not be a good example for 'cost' for this upgrade, as most dealers are not as courteous as this one.

    As for the bennies of the upgrade, I can see the caller info when the phone rings; I can browse the addy book; I can see phone log history;

    I wish LR would enable the SMS feature ; promise I won't TND (text n drive)...

    Is this the same dealer that, on a bad day, charges you $85/hr in labor? Do you share a condo with Santa Claus in the North Pole?

    I gotta get out of this dump...

    I had mine upgraded this week and the phone book transfers with my blackberry pearl from verizon. I was not charged for the upgrade. The only problem I have is that only one phone number is able to be selected thru the car when trying to call out. Incoming calls from the second number get related correctly to the contact.

    Fyi -- for those in the west LA area, it's gonna be a while before you can take yours to a dealer for this upgrade. I called the three closest dealerships to me and none of their service managers have even heard of the tsb. I even faxed a copy to one of them and in typical LR dealer service fashion, they would not return my calls to see if they could perform the upgrade with the information I supplied.

    Real helpful.

    I just had this done on my truck.

    Works with the iphone. You hit the telephone button on the dash and scroll through the phone book and then tap it again to call.

    Unfortunately, incoming calls do not show the name/ Caller ID of the user. It just shows "1"
    Maybe it is an iphone issue. I'll try it on another phone/

    That sucks... Even without upgrade I can see the incoming call (number only)on the LCD, I'd hate losing that convenience. Are you sure this isn't just happening with callers blocking their ID?

    caller ID worked perfect today. Maybe it needed some time to download the numbers after I started driving the car.
