    It doesn't look like it has been fixed yet. Hopefully the big software update coming includes a fix for this.

    This problem seems to be intermittent. I had it happen every day for the first week, then it didn't happen at all for two weeks, then this week it happened three times again. Not sure what triggers it but I doubt there has been any actual software update sent to the cars to fix it.

    Please tell me I am not the only one who goes in to the garage each night just to see if there is any update notification on the screen ?!?!

    Why do that. It's easier just to check on here and see if anyone posts about an update message. Then you can go look at the car :smile:

    If the proximity for homelink is old news I missed that, very cool! (sorry to derail, maybe move to the updates thread?)

    We should probably move this to some dedicated homelink thread but...

    This has me a little worried. If I just tap/tap my Homelink entry, my garage stops halfway up (it sends the signal too long). If I tap/tap/tap (HL/entry/HL), then my garage opens perfectly. I don't know how to game it like this when it's proximity "auto tap/tap".

    no news on loading songs to the hard drive and wifi hotspot functionality? That was one of my biggies so that I didn't have to load my phone with music #1 and carry around my Sprint hotspot #2.

    Great updates! Auto door handles yay! Just need wifi and access to hd.

    Also, Brian as I understand it the home link just displays the closest location at the top. It doesn't auto open.

    One other came to mind when I was thinking about "whats missing" in my car.

    There should be touch screen control to open and close the hatchback .... yes / no?
