We picked up our new 2018 yesterday. Within a couple of hours I had this update which I promptly installed.. Today we drove from North Atlanta are to the Knoxville Supercharger and back. Navigation seems to be far worse that my 2014 pre AP car I just sold. The navigation put us on a lot of back roads which seemed to be the "shorter route". The scenery was fantastic. The navigation seemed to re-route us a number of times during the trip up and back. With my 2014 car I learned that for the most pat it was better to trust the navigation even through I felt I knew a better way. Due to the regular re-routing I decided to take a look at the navigation settings. In my 2014 I had the navigation Traffic based Routing activated. I also had the setting to suggest a new route to only do so when I could save 10 minutes. On my new 2018 I found that there are not any navigation settings anywhere that I could find. I am not sure if this is a firmware difference or a new car difference. So unless they moved the settings and I simply forgot where they are and can't find them, there are No configuration settings anywhere.

So, I am wondering if someone with an older car that took the update to 2018.10.4.8bbdc66 noticed this? Or perhaps someone with a new car picked up recently and hasn't taken the update to 2018.10.4.8bbdc66 can check and see if the navigation settings are anywhere to be found?

Okay, I feel like such a knob. Found the Navigation settings under apps. All the same settings are still there. Perhaps the weirdness today was due to "real" traffic issues.
