I'm really looking forward to this. Eleven days to go, at most!

I'm downloading now. For those who have not found it, look for the VIEW LATEST SOFTWARE link under your car on UVO. FYI, I had to refresh the page before I could see the link. I'm downloading now so I should be updated in the next 2 hours. I have cable internet so it is pretty fast and it is still saying it will take an hour to download, then another 40 minutes to update the car and it needs the SD card the whole time so I would recommend starting it when you have at least 2 hours where you won't have to drive your car.

Started the download with the SD card in my Mac this morning. Hopefully it'll be all ready to install when I get home from work. I'm excited!

I went home at lunch to retrieve the SD card following the download and installed it on my way back to the office.

The download was about 10GB and total file size was about 13GB after unzipping. SD card was reformatted before the unpacked files were installed onto it which had me suspect we're getting the latest map updates in addition to the CarPlay/AA functionality.

After installation (took about half an hour) I indeed have the newest mapping software. By tapping the little compass icon on the left side of the map I can now switch to 3D view!

I got the "Please check the update memory and try again" error. Now I don't have the update or nav!

Scheduled to take it in next week.

When playing music via USB after the CarPlay update the songs are stuttering from time to time.

I have done a hard reset on the head unit (via the little pen-hole button), reset the factory GPS to original settings, and restored my iPhone as new and reloaded all my stuff. The problem persists this morning.

Anyone else?

I didn't realize Android Auto needed USB connection to work. I have a wireless quick charger that I love too much. Hopefully bluetooth or wifi connectivity will come into play at some point.
