Re: Infotainment Software 14.1.0 to 14.4.2

Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:46 pm

I'd be happy to do the update myself, but google isn't helping me. I googled Bolt V14.4.2 download, added FAT32, and some other variations and I'm not finding anything. Can someone point me toward the page or thread I need to find the download, etc?

Here's the link to the download: https://mega.nz/#!mgZyVZLY!tGpiKZFNU1OC ... JnRd0YpxWg

I did a search on "chevy bolt infotainment update to 14.4.2". Then picked the link titled "Chevy Bolt 14.4.2 Radio Update SPS download - YouTube" with the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2a6dSjIuKg that brings up the above youtube video showing an update like the dealer would do, with the link to the download below the video. Hope that helps. :)

Thanks for the link!!!! Very helpful. Has anyone used the file for a sucessful update?

I'm assuming I'm supposed to copy and extract to a clean usb stick? Stick it in and viola?

A member NY -Rob posted these instructions in another Bolt forum, many folks in that thread have posted that they have sucessfuly used the file, the only issues I have read were:
1: not having the vehicle on and the radio timing out and shutting off during update, no harm done, update successful with vehicle on
2: using too large a USB stick, it was not reconized

here were the instructions he posted:
"Unzip file to root of 16Gb USB flash drive
Unplug anything from Bolt USB ports
Power up Bolt
Insert flash drive with update on it
Agree at "do you want to update" prompt on center display
Wait 12min- watch progress bar on center display
"Done" will appear on display, display will shut off in 2-3min
Remove USB flash drive, turn Bolt off, wait 30sec or so, turn Bolt back on... display takes a bit longer to boot first time after update
Confirm you're on 14.4.2

Android Auto now acts like it's a first time connect again- so you need to agree to terms on your phone and Bolt screen.

It worked perfectly for me tonight. Main thing is to extract the file on your computer, and copy the contents of the extracted folder into the USB drive. The first time I tried it I failed, because I copied the folder into the USB drive. You have to open the extracted folder, and copy those contents into the USB drive. I then fired up the Bolt, plugged in the drive, and it asked me if I wanted to update. I answered yes, and it took about 12 minutes. It then took a couple of minutes for the system to shut down, and then it rebooted. The reboot was slow the first time as expected. But all is perfect. I hope it solves my flaky bluetooth. We shall see!!

For those of us using CarPlay is there any other significant reason to update? Is there a list of what has been fixed with this version over 14.1.0?

followed instructions on this link and did it this weekend:
https://electrek.co/2018/01/12/update-c ... -firmware/
Exactly as advertised and no problems.
10 minutes to load the thumb drive,
10 minutes to load into the car.

Just had the dealer install this update today. Bluetooth is solid. Keypass still has issues. Overall it seems to be a better release than the previous one I had. However, still has the bug that if you don't get the Bluetooth the first time correctly, you have to power down the car and let it sit until it comes up cold to correctly establish Bluetooth.

I like that it loads Android Auto the first time. I'd constantly have to reconnect the usb cable (usually pulled it from the console instead of the phone because it's easier to do with one hand). I thought it was some kind of glitch in my phone. I like the usefulness of full-screen Waze too.
