Harley Davidson and Harman Kardon just released Boom!™ Box software update version 220.127.116.11 on September 19, 2017. This comes after software update versions 18.104.22.168 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, 22.214.171.124.
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.

As I have stated, Harley Davidson put the cart before the horse a bit on the Boom Box for the Rushmore Project and is playing catch up now. The system is awesome but has several issues. I truly believe these issues will be corrected in time with the ongoing software updates.
Remember, the Boom Box is just a computer and needs routine software and map updates just like your smartphone or computer. They are constantly improving the way the system operates and fixing bugs, so this is critical.
Here are some very helpful videos, so you can become familiar with and operate the Boom!™ Box system to include updating the system software:

Hey Ryan is your wedsite a “HARLEY” only site? I have a 2017 Indian Roadmaster and a 1968 Triumph Bonneville I have not seen anything but Harley material. Do you do any thing else but Harley? Thanks bro.
Ryan Urlacher says
Search our website using the search bar Kenneth. We do content on whatever we can get our hands on. We’ve don Victory, Indian, Harley, and Honda. Definitely, Harley is the majority, because that’s what most of us ride and we have access to.

First I hope this thread isn’t dead.
I have a 2015 Street Glide Special with the boom audio. I attempted to update the software for the first time. I downloaded the program off Harleys website first using a Mac computer, then read that it wouldn’t work. So then I used a windows base computer and unzipped the files so they are in their folders. I kept getting a loop of where the radio says please wait and then turns off and so on. This went on for a couple hours and nothing. I removed the fuse to the radio to try and reset the radio with no luck. I then went out and bought 2 new flash drives and redownloaded the software. I did notice that they had two files one for premium and one for CVO. So I downed both on separate flash drives. I attempted again the update using the premium that was unzipped using a windows computer. I am still in the loop of the please wait off and on screen. If I don’t have the flash drive in the bike and turn the bike on it tells me to insert the update to finish it but it never finishes. I attempted to hold the mute button while turning on to reset the radio with no luck. Do I need drag all of the files out their specific folders so all files? please help cause now I don’t have a radio and it was working perfect before I tried to update.
