Heres a quick video tutorial aimed at updating the RVOSD5 autopilot/HUD from Rangevideo.com. Due to the steps involved, the software and files that need to be downloaded, and additional hardware that will need to be purchased (Pickit2), I though it might be useful to create a how-to video.

Hi Matt, that's a good video tutorial. More helpful that my own
However you missed an important step. In order to properly update the graphic board you need to download the latest device list for the pickit, then replace the old one.
...Also the right way to ask for the unlock code is to PM me on the Rangevideo forum, else my answer will take longer, you will be re-directed to RV forum anyways.
