    Yes, mine was available yesterday morning when I was leaving for work - I ran the upgrade once I got to work.

    Would you mind adding an entry to the Firmware Upgrade Tracker tool?
    We use this to get interesting stats on the upgrade process...
    Thanks

    Based on the above sample size of 2 it looks like the newer cars are getting it first. :rolleyes:

    What does 6.2 get us with older cars? I think this is the first software update I could care less about.

    I guess you must not travel anywhere beyond the range of your car (or even close to the end of your range).

    I've got mine, I'm not supposed to tell you when I got it. :) Rather surprisingly 6.2 seemed to increase SC charging efficiency (ie: decrease SC charge time). I was right in the middle of a road trip and I saw decreases of 15+ minutes in my charge times which I was quite surprised at.

    I got mine yesterday. So far so good.

    TAAC seems to be smoother, now have blind spot warning. Don't want to test emergency braking.

    Valet mode is there, but haven't tried it yet.

    Nav seems much better, still can't get to Halifax or Northern Michigan very easily, but at least it tells me that.

    Doesn't this release have the trip planner? That's worth having.

    Ah trip planner. That will come in useful if/when I take a road trip in the S.

    It would be very handy in a few weeks. Heading down to NJ.

    I thought that moderators get priority when it comes to firmware updates...

    LOL I wish! They seem to randomize things... I once had an update on the very first day, and I've also had to wait weeks.

    Seems to be, yeah. Unfortunately I don't track my charge stops all that closely so I have to admit this is largely anecdotal, but even my spouse noticed the decrease in time and commented on it. Environmental conditions were largely the same so it wasn't a temperature/cooling difference, plus we drove the same trip home using the same SCs as we did on the way out so it wasn't a difference in charging output.
