The map software that was sent is very slow to respond while driving. The radio signal is iffy at best (my original BMW Business had much better reception).
On the + side, the bluetooth hookup to the phone works really well. I had the top down yesterday and the person who called me did not complain about not being able to hear me. This was using the internal mic. I did have the external mic hooked up, but undid it because of a "tunnel effect" complaint when testing.
How can I fix these issues? Is it a software bug? Why won't the clock stay current (I am using AM/PM, we American's are not use to 24 hour clock
). Please let me know what can be done about this before I take this out and request a refund.
Check out my post here where I received a firmware download from Carlos/Eonon to fix my jumpy time issue:
