Yup, I never updated apim, just the latest 3.4 update from 3.0. Everything else works fine, just no sirius icons.

You have done the apim reset? Hold seek right and power.

Could be a Sirius issue. Maybe you could log in to Sirius and resend the signal.

Weird that yours are not coming back. Mine took 24 hours or so.

I think you can. I have never backed mine up either. I just keep great notes on what I have changed.

I would just go through and see what you have.

I take screenshots when I’m in FORScan so I can compare what I have to what is on that Explorer sheet or to what others have.

OH well, i actually downgraded to 3.3, then updated to 3.4, reset EVERYTHING...Still no icons. It is what it is. Wondering if I should mess with the apim FW?

I read in that F150 thread that it is tricky to mess with the APIM firmware.

Since you just redid everything I’d give it a little time to see if they come back.

4 days later no icons. Oh well. Still better on 3.4, than 3.0 with icons.

LOL, I dont think so. As stated, it worth having no icons, to be on 3.4

what are the advantages of version 3.4 over 3.0
GUI has been re-worked, no more colour-tagged tabs, everything is blue or beige for Lincoln. Unless you need new navigation maps v1.19 there is nothing to gain.
