The tech I discussed this with, mentioned two things in regards to apps.
a) Switching between apps, such as NAV, XM, Phone, Climate, etc.
b)Actual apps such as Pandora and others, that will be coming in the near future.

I myself need to take mine in to have the update done if it does in fact fix the crackling. I really notice it when I am listening to Stern on SXM. Anyone else notice this as well?

Having a Pandora App would be pretty sick!

Well, the dealership finally installed a new radio and so far has corrected my "application assist" reset issue. I noticed to that the version installed on the new radio is 13.31.06. Attached are cosmetic changes I noticed from my previous version.

1st Pic: Version Number
2nd Pic: Have the option to turn off rear view dimmer
3rd Pic: Hold button and End button are light up with different colors.

Also notice the 3G icon is highlighted in blue.

Interesting.

I'm glad they threw in a few cosmetic changes; it makes an otherwise minor update file little more substantial.

Was the mirror dimmer control always there? Off the top of my head I don't remember that from before.

I don't think I have the controls button on my radio. Is that only for those with heated seats? I'll have to look harder in the morning. Lol

I definitely do not reminder the rear view dimmer. I think this is new.

It would be worth a trip to the dealer for this version if the "blast your ears off when turning the truck on if radio was muted" bug is fixed. Can you test when you have a chance?

The only issue I had with volume was when a call came in. If I was driving and a call came while connected to Bluetooth, the ring would blow my ear drums out!!! Either the replacement radio or this newer version corrected that issue. I have had my replacement radio for 3 days now and everything is working GREAT. Knock on wood!!!

If i may make a suggestion

i would think the Best way to sort of keep up with the radio versions
would be when a member gets a new factory order in
Ask them which radio they have & tell them how to bring up the Version # of their radio's software/firmware
at least you would know of any updates that occurred in the last 8 weeks
