Behind Middle Of Front Bumper Page 27 These symptoms are difficult to reproduce. If the client has any of these complaints, go to DIAGNOSIS to check the AcuraLink software versions. This bulletin does not address these issues: ^ Complaints relating to HandsFreeLink (HFL), which are not related to the AcuraLink control unit. ^ XM preset descriptions sometimes being slow to display on the navigation audio screen; this is normal. ^ Complaints of poor XM reception. ^ No Real-Time Traffic due to incorrect client traffic settings (traffic icon or icon options set to oft). Refer to the appropriate service manual or Service Bulletin 05-026, No Real-Time Traffic on the Display ^ No Real-Time Traffic in areas with no traffic coverage. Refer to the appropriate service manual or Service Bulletin 05-026, No Real-Time Traffic on the Display VEHICLES AFFECTED CORRECTIVE ACTION Do the diagnosis and, if needed, update the AcuraLink control unit software with the GNA600. NOTE: The AcuraLink control unit has two functions and operates using two separate software programs: Real-Time Traffic, which is the main program that is identified as the Camelot software version, and XM, which is the subprogram that is identified by the V850 software version. The software update for this bulletin corrects issues with both Real-Time Traffic and XM, so the updating procedure will update both the Camelot and V850 software versions. * 2005 RL: The software in the original AcuraLink control unit in the 2005 RL cannot be updated, and the Product Update campaign for this control unit has ended. If an affected vehicle still needs the repair, use normal service manual troubleshooting procedures to repair the listed problems. Any applicable warranty will still apply.* SOFTWARE INFORMATION To complete the procedure in this service bulletin, the following software (or later) must be loaded into your workstation by the dealer's network administrator. HDS Software Version: 2.013.017 (red CD) or later. Database Update: 28-Jan-2008-HIP or later The updated AcuraLink software program versions are shown in the table.
