    2016 500x radio frozen on start up.

    Two days ago my radio appears to have frozen on the start up screen with the Fiat logo. Iíve disconnected the battery a few times and it continues to do the same thing. Also it appears that while itís locked up this way the USB ports do not work and I canít charge my phone. Iíve tried searching the forums and canít find any solutions to this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Which radio? 3.0/5.0/6.5

    When you disconnect the battery did you step on the brake pedal?

    Everytime I've seen the logo stuck on the screen the system was performing a software download. Confused as to what was going on I would turn off the radio and turn it back on thus starting the download from the begining. The download took about a half hour. The radio must be powered on during this time and you must have a good link to the satellite (not in a parking garage).
