    Huh, I wonder if this has the GPS fix in it. When release notes come out, will you let us know what they say?

    Got an OTA upgrade to 5.6 today.
    There is a new option in the settings to disable energy saving mode for those who prefers a quick startup.

    Perfect IMO. If I know I'm gonna be away from the car and it isn't plugged in, turn this on -- otherwise, leave it off. A timed mode would be cool too.

    Also glad to see the user manual finally pop up considering I took video of it on the betas more than a year ago.

    Very interesting. This is the first 1.45.xx build that we have seen. Do you happen to remember which version / build you had before?
    Thanks for sharing!

    The comment about the range display is also interesting... I expect the disclaimers they put in there make it sound that your predicted range numbers will be lower on a standard charge now.

    I wonder if 5.6 will bring all cars to the same version or if US automobiles will stay on the 5.0 line.

    I was on v5.0 (1.35.102) before the update.

    That's what I was hoping you would say.
    5.5 apparently was mostly (only?) on the pre-production demo cars in Europe. And I had heard from a service technician in the US that he saw the first of the beta testers come in with a 5.6 version number a couple of weeks ago.
    So hopefully this is where they are planning to put all of us!

    I thought this was in the 5.0 release notes already... I need to go back and look through what had been posted earlier...

    Why would I want the seat heater settings in the profile? That's a decision made based on the ambient temperature of the day. :confused:

    I'd guess that in Norway they use the seat heaters the majority of the year.

    not any more than we do here in Montreal/Ottawa ... looking at the average temps posted on this site we have colder average temps than Oslo in the winter and the rest of the year does not seem to warrant the use of seat heaters.

    If you have the seat heater on in v5.0 and you leave the car and come back, does it come back on? Maybe that's why it needs to be stored in the profile? I'm speculating here...

    I'd just like the seat heater to stay where I left it. I certainly don't want the profile thingie popping up every time I hit the seat heater.

    How did I miss this (the big letters) the first time? That's the most exciting part for me.

    That gives me hope I might see new firmware in my car before 2014.

    With all those MPH references in the screenhots, I'm guessing yes -- all on same version...

    I clearly remember reading those statements regarding range calculations in the previous SW version release notes as well.
