dreaded crackling stereo noise since latest update

Post by lawly74 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 10:53 am

After a year of perfect stereo sound quality I've been getting the dreaded crackling sound ever since i downloaded the apple car play update. Anyone else had this?

Mine has had Rice Crispies since day 1 of ownership (12 months). The last update didn’t fix it either.

I have to confess to being a Range Rover Sport owner but the crackling / popping issue is common to Range Rover models

I had no problems until the 2 year service in April 2019 when a software update was installed (sat nav running a bit slow before).

So immediately after cracking/popping started . Love the car but infotainment issue drives me nuts. Complaints and dealer notified and fault accepted - promise was of new software update in June/July. So eventually 19B out and get it updated at end of November.

So noise just as bad - no change whatsoever despite promises it would fix the problem. The noise isn't minor it is loud and pretty constant especially on phone and music. So what to do now ?

I paid several thousand pounds for the audio upgrade to Meridien system and it is worse than my partner's Suzuki which works perfectly.

I see some are saying the update has fixed the problem though - so views please ?

Hate to say it but I too think the snap crackle and pop has returned on 19b.

It’s not quite as prominent but defo heard it there today.

That’s probably it for me with the Velar then, this one at least anyway.

Hey guys, my velar just got updated to the 19c firmware and with that update plus using an Apple USB cable I have not heard any cracking yet. It's been 3 days since I've heard the noise! Hoping this is finally fixed! I know it seems obvious but make sure ur using an actual apple supplied USB cable!

19C has a fix for this, and if you still experience it after 19C let your dealer know.

I've had NO issues for since 19B update. I installed 19C yesterday and working fine. No audio crackles either.
