Thanks for the update Shoeboy! I'm liking the phonebook downloading feature a lot. Let us know how it works for you. I have 9.715 presently.

Will do...as soon as it arrives. I too have version 9.715 and it's great, but the additions made by 9.807 will put MYGIG over the top. I can't wait to see what else they come up with. Having had my 08 (and MYGIG) for 10 months now, i am SOOOO happy with it, but I almost wish i waited for the 09. Keyless entry, push button start, iPOD controlled from the MYGIG (and maybe the steering wheel) and antenna in the rear window. ALL AWESOME features that i WOULD LOVE to have!

So far so good. Several improvements that look great.

Hopefully the mute issue is taken care of.

Could someone point me in the right direction to speak to HB customer support. I can't seem to contact anyone there and I badly need this software update. It seems that Beth is the correct person to contact, but I don't know how. Can someone help me out?

Shoeboy....

I thought that at first.....same thing could not load additional music, juke box gone and no music files. I had to do something else and went away, came back to the car 2 hours later and my music was there! What a relief. MyGig was reconfiguring?? not sure. But I have everything now I had prior.

Hope you experience the same.

The phone book from my phone was automatically loaded into the MyGig...very cool.

how does the phone book thing work. Can you voice dial anyone in the phones phone book? Or do you have to look the number up on the MYGIG? Also do all the NAMES and NUMBERS go to the hard drive? or is it just there while the phone is connected via the bluetooth? I have yet to try that feature. The icon showes a book with a red or green check right? have you figured that out?

sorry for all the ?'s

Aaron....shoeboy

Not a problem.....glad to help.

The contacts in the phone are loaded automatically and remain in the MyGig phone book. You can listen to them and since I have several hundred I have tried to stop the audio and dial a particular number but have not been successful. Eventually I will get it figured out or maybe someone will contribute....

HB did a nice job with this update, took some time but paid off? Hopefully no new issues come about.
