    I just received the cfc update and noticed a slight change in the font. UI update imminent or just a random tweak? Screenshot_20170906-134631.png IMG_20170906_082617.jpg

    So, it's really 2017.34, or 17.34. The hash code means little, and we have to keep looking it up to know what you mean. :) Let's use the numbers that are useful! 17.34 is the main release from week 34 of this year.

    On the font, is that really different? Looks like what I remember, but I don't have a car nearby (yet...). :D

    I believe I only see the font difference in Night Mode, in day mode it seems the same. But in Night Mode the font is thinner yet brighter… crisper, I'd say.

    The only real difference I can tell from the photos is that in one of them the "1" has serifs at the bottom of the vertical stroke and in the other, it doesn't. Look closely at the range next to the battery gauge. There's more to it than that? (I'm running two-month-old firmware...ancient! :D)

    All of the numbers are thinner/sharper. Text on slacker and the time are different. Navigation looks to be the same.

    Ah, OK, thanks. I'm all for change that actually implements an improvement, as opposed to the User Interface Trend du Jour. :)

    (As to which this represents, or what might be coming in some unspecified future update, I have no idea!)

    I find the night mode font on the navigation is way, way better. It used to be basically unreadable to me. Now it's clear as a bell.
