What software version were you running before? And what software version does this upgrade take you to?

I did the upgrade:

Software Version
Old ST.PSEV.CAN.ES11.160620
New ST.PSEV.CAN.ES12.170309

Navi App Version
Old ST4.NAM.KMC.160610.93206
New ST4.NAM.KMC.160617.93676

Map Version
Old NAM.09.47.44.543.001.1
New NAM.08.47.44.552.004.1

The Firmware Versions didn't change.

I'm a little confused by the map version where the first number has gone down but the 4th and 5th have gone up. Have my maps been downgraded or upgraded? It doesn't really matter because the whole point is to run Android Auto for maps anyway.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just learned about this update and would love to try and get it on our 2015 +. Any chance either of you folks in the thread here still have the file somewhere? Can upload to a drive? Cheers!
