    I have a Roadster 2.5 with the the Alpine IVA-NAV-10 console unit (as supplied by Tesla).

    Every now and then, I get a message on the screen saying "SUB Updated. Press any key.".
    I don't know if this is an update message from Alpine or from the vehicle? [What is a "SUB"?]
    Anyone know what this is referring to?

    (Usual apologies if this has been previously answered but the key words were too common to search for.)

    Are you planning to go underwater?

    The message appears on the Alpine screen. Pressing the screen makes the message go away.

    The Roadster kinda looks James Bond-ish so it would be nice if I could go underwater (make sure your SUB is updated first)!

    Just putting "Alpine SUB Updated" in a general Google search pulls up various Alpine manuals.

    Apparently it has to do with your satellite radio SUBscription.

    Thanks Doug. I should have gone to the "All Seeing...All Knowing" Google for my answer, but it's more fun to post here.
    I wonder what Sirius needs to update on my radio?

    (Also, thanks Doug_G for the great Simpson video!)
     
  9. Not sure if you are a XM/Sirius subscriber but they send out signals every so often, to ensure that people are not listening to Sirius without pay the subscription fee. When you cancel your subscription a lot of times you can turn your radio off for a few weeks, then when you turn it back on you can listen for free. XM/Sirius sends these signals at random intervals to ensure that people are not merely turning their radios off right after they cancel and getting free service.
