After 2.1 update

Post by DSB18 » Wed May 26, 2021 4:05 pm

I have just had the 2.1 update from 2.0, took them over week but its done now, they claimed they had to update everything, not sure what that means.
But since I have had it back the car seems a little more responsive and the regen braking seems a lot stronger.
Is it my imagination or has anyone else experienced different performance after a software update.

Yes to both observations here too.

My only niggle is that the “apps” on the touch screen sometimes take a while to appear but is more responsive once there.

We had driven a lot of km on ours before 2.1 and definitely see better regen afterwards.

'Update everything'? I understand that rather than patch the firmware they reinstall it in its entirety.
