Dension 500 problems

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

This post really goes out to all those board members who have fitted a Dension 500 (in my case V2 not the new V3) as I am experiencing problems and I am wondering if anyone else has and found a fix.

The issue surrounds the display on my PCM 2. When I choose the Audio screen and I press CD list I sometimes get a screen that should show the







But instead shows:







And when I do get the correct screen and choose say- Artists, all I get is the word "Loading" but nothing does. However, the Ipod is supplying the music to the PCM with whichever track was last playing.

If I turn the PCM off and then back on again the list appears for a brief few moments and reverts to the word "loading" again.

I can finish my journey or park the car in the garage overnight, come out, switch on and all is well again.

The dension unit itself is fitted on top of the fuel tank area under the plastic trim. the iPod connector, USB etc, sits where the CDC once lived

Anyone out there had similar or anyone got any thoughts?

If you haven't yet, try uploading the new 2.08 firmware. Its redesigned the UI and fixes a number of bugs.


Thanks Pop,

The update must be new as I was on the site only last Sunday using Firmware V2.05 but thanks again for the heads up - lets see if it will sort the problem.
