    Totally agree. The steering wheel should move first. I wonder why in older cars you can't move the seats and wheel at the same time?

    I also appreciate the change to Easy Entry with the seat belt removal, instead of Park. I found with using it that less was more: I have the seat move forward just a bit — I sit behind the B pillar — and the steering wheel move forward and up a bit. Helps with getting out but it doesn't take very long for the movements to happen. Like you I, too, wish the steering wheel would move first or at the same time as the seat.

    If enough of us write in to [email protected] requesting a change in the order of movements during easy entry perhaps they will listen? I can only assume it's a hardware limitation in our older cars preventing multiple things from moving at once. When was that feature added anyway? Nose refresh cars?

    If that's the case, it's odd that we have in the settings the ability to change the reading from bars to PSI. Why give us that if the car doesn't even have the ability to read the new sensors?

    They really should just display the tire pressures in random order with vehicles that have the old Baolong type. Certainly more useful than not having anything displayed.

    Agreed, but I reckon they thought that it would cause more complaints than not showing. The correctness of that idea is open to question in my opinion.

    Anyone in a classic having issues with the rear park aid not chiming? Fronts work fine but no sound on rears and I have toggled the chime and mute buttons and rebooted multiple times. Just started happening on 2018.6.1

    Yeah, I just noticed this myself. It probably began with the last firmware update. Very annoying.

    Yep my reverse chimes are out too
    4 years on relying on the chimes and now they are gone
    Called service and Will be fixed in the next update.
    Sell me a car that can add features ,But don't take them away !
    Makes me wonder about code,
    when they update firmware things get jarred.
    Fire some beta testers and put me on that team.
    its actually quite a serious problem if you are use to them.

    I don't have chimes on my car, but whenever I have a loaner with chimes I turn them off because they really dislike where I park.

    Rear sensor chimes are back in 2018.12 (or could be an earlier version).

    I can confirm that I did observe this issue on my car too when it was reported here. Now it is gone.

    Release notes for 2018.26:

    Firmware update2018.26crop 2071 7-21-18.jpg

    I don't really "get" this one. The nav update in April was a huge improvement. Is this one a real change or just bug fixes?

    Edit: the nav update is "previous release notes" so this is just "minor improvements and bug fixes."

    I (finally) bumped yesterday from 18.12 to 18.26 and my notes said the same, but what was odd was I thought I already had the maps/navigation update. The maps on the dash had certainly changed with my last update at the end of March, but this time I noticed a significant change on my main MCU maps. They are much more responsive overall. Rather impressive update, more so because I thought I had already gotten it.

    Most (all) of the time I leave my maps on Sat view though so perhaps the speed of regular compared to that was what I thought was the update. Now with the proper vector compared to the sluggish sat view the speed is actually impressive.

    Got the.26 update. Seems a bit more responsive, but the colors are all off. Like the maps went through a greyscale filter

    Maybe that was the change? Same (updated) engine but new graphics?

    I also always leave my map on sat view, in part because it is lovely to look at where I live.

    My sequence was 2018.6.1 to 2018.14.2 (April) to 2018.26. My recollection was that the nav update in April was partly maps pushed and partly a big firmware update but I can't recall which did what. For me the big improvement was a vastly improved energy estimation algorithm when moving between Supercharger Stations on road trips. Nav can now project energy use on road trips at high (70 - 80 mph) freeway speeds accurately, which was not the case before. I also liked the IC nav display improvements (pretty sure that was the firmware update, 2018.14.2 in my case).

    Got a chance to try it all out on a routine 2600 mile road trip in May. I learned that I could rely on the estimate of energy left at my next stop, for the first time. Since I routinely stretch the range in my S60 — with 10% battery degradation — on long trip legs, that was a huge improvement for me. The nav update improved some weird routing bugs (taking a long route over the mountains versus the shorter, easier route around the mountains) and introduced some new ones around my home (it now apparently uses 40+ year old USGS quads for roads that were moved two decades ago — go figure).

    I can't really judge map speeds because I went from a 3G screen to an LTE screen in February and that may have improved map handling and tile painting. Regardless, it is really good now and pinching the map is near instantaneous.

    Haven't had a chance to try out 2018.26 yet.

    My front louvers don't work after the update... I'd prefer no updates at this point instead of updates with bugs
