Regarding update 1.09?

Do I have to uptar this "k07v_update-1.0.9.tar" into a thumb drive and press reset?
I see that within the tar file, there is another "gpl_root.tar" file, do I untar this too?


Thanks.....

no need untar, unzip 1 time is enuf then copy the file onto the root of ur thumbdrive.
no need reset too, load ur usb, then go to setup to update. refer manual.

i dun think our set can change the arrow icon, unlike those handheld ones. Pretty boring looking at the arrows all the time...

btw, think my colleague Mr Chan just patronized you. :good:

Yes you can listen to music while navigating at the same time. This set also has Multi-Zone, whereby you can listen to radio for the front 2 speakers and let you children watch movies on rear LCDs with sound coming from the rear speakers.

One of my friend imported from a ebay seller, who helped by under-declaring the item. Took 6 days to arrive, total price less than $1400.
