Dension Firmware update, Dension Config files, How to update Dension ICE>Link plus, Download Dension Firmware

Today I finally did what I should have done a year ago – I created a block here with just the Dension firmware files in it for people to download as they need. You will see each of the early firmwares there on the left hand side, plus a zip archive with all of them together (to save you having to get them one at a time). Also in there is the configuration files for various car makes, plus the .pdf on how to run the updates.

If anyone wants to send me the very latest Dension files I’d be pleased to add them to the list.

Dension have done a poor job in providing these files for their customers, in my opinion. As time marches on, more improvements to the firmwares will have been made, but a lot of folk seem to want to stay with a version that works for them. For me, that was version 2.05, but I removed my Dension ICE>Link a year ago in favour of the Alpine head unit and KCA420i iPod adapter – a far superior experience when playing your iPod in your car.

However, I believe the Dension product is brilliantly innovative, if somewhat poorly supported. I will continue to host these files as long as I can.

    Hi,Was wondering if you could help? I purchased an ICE link plus for my Honda Civic Type R. My head unit can be put into CD changer mode, however, it does not allow any control over the ipod nor does it play any music through the ipod. The ipod pauses as soon as I move to CD changer mode.

    I have installed the latest firmware (305) but I have noticed that there are no config files for Honda hosted on this site. Could this be what I need to allow the ICE link to function, and is so have Dension made these available?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yes, you’ll definitely need the right config file for the HU – if it is a manufacturer supplied unit then yes, the Honda files will be needed. If you fit an aftermarket unit (like Alpine or Becker) then you use the config files for that make.

    If you don’t use the right (or any) config file then the HU won’t see the iPod at all and you won’t be able to control it.

    Thanks very much for getting back to me so soon. I just read your comment now. Any idea where I can download this config file from? It is a manufacturer supplied head unit so it would be the honda config file i need.
