    did the RR ver 2.5 fix anything or break anything that you noticed? I have ver 2.4 right now, just wondering if it is worth going to 2.5?

    I have not noticed anything different, fixed or broken, from 2.4. It's hard to say, since they don't publish changelogs, but if you can easily update it you might as well.

    Liquidtenmillion,

    I saw it in the 12volt forum that v2.6 is released and addressed the music information display issue, but they can’t reproduce the communication issue by any version of their firmware.

    I’m still on 2.2 and recently I had very rare chance to see communication issue, it’s about once a week and even less, not sure if this is about CarPlay to cause it.

    2.5 100% for sure fixed the communication issue. It was related to the way that they query vehicle settings on boot up.

    Now what they do is every time you actually go into the vehicle settings you see "Scanning Settings" before it shows the settings. On older versions scanning settings occurred during boot up, which caused a race condition and potential crash.

    Now that crash never happens and the controls always work 100%, I can personally verify this. However, it takes longer to get into the vehicle settings since it scans at that point, instead of in the background at start up, but going into those settings is rare anyway.

    Thanks Liquidtenmillion!

    It’s really nice to see your theory and the verification, it makes sense that old version may crash by scanning setting during boot up.

    Would love to see some pictures! Is this on a 2016 Prius? If not, would it work on a 2016?
