Harley Davidson and Harman Kardon just released Boom!™ Box software update version 126.96.36.199 on September 19, 2017. This comes after software update versions 188.8.131.52 that was released on August 7 2017. We have received many inquiries from bikers asking if they should update to this latest version. It is always a good idea to wait and see if an update fixes more than it breaks and let me have some time to test things.
Note: This particular update if for the Boom Box 4.3 Standard, 6.5T Premium, and the CVO 6.5GT systems. I give the go-ahead to update to this new Boom Box software update version, 184.108.40.206.
I installed and tested this update for you. As usual, don't expect any miracles and that suddenly all things will be fixed for ever user. They still have a long way to go to get rid of all the problems that persist with the Harley Boom!™ Box Infotainment System. We are all skeptical that they'll ever get the Boom Box working perfectly at this point.
Question: If I get behind on updating my Boom Box software, will I have to go back and install each past update I missed?
Answer: No, you do not have to update incrementally. If you get behind, just grab the latest software update here and install it. It will update everything you need including past updates. There is no access to the older updates from the Harley website anyway.
Question: If I update my Boom Box to the newest software version and don't like it or it brakes things, am I stuck with it?
Answer: No, as long as you have been saving each Boom Box update file somewhere you're fine. You can go to a past software update file and install that over the new update version (downgrade). Keep all software versions and updates as Harley does not post or give access to older versions.
