      I found a chrysler TSB for a firmware update on RBZ radios. This will probably not apply to most of the 2011+ vans.

      • Confirm you have RBZ RADIO (Model# located next to Aux Input)


      • Check your firmware (See TSB below)


      • Download firmware 8.05.01 (15.9MB) from
      http://www.mediafire.com/?z3mrb86kem6rdsk

      • Open the .ISO file with your CD burning software and burn a CD. You can download a free version of Nero here:
      http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nbl-free.php

      • Turn Ignition to On position (not accessory) and insert the CD. Further instructions are listed in the TSB below.


      • After the update is complete it will reboot and come back to the upgrade screen. Select No and eject the disk.


      • The only setting that went back to default was the radio EQ. My Sirius radio presets and blutooth pairing did not reset

      The most noticeable item from this update is the backup camera picture quality. Anyone who has this radio should do it.
