Updated Navigation installed!

The software update was actually Thursday night. Didn’t see anything new in the release notes, but the install was longer than usual which I thought was strange. When I got in the car this morning, the note appeared on the screen.

Initial thoughts after a 5 minute drive - GPS voice and phrases are different, center screen looks the same, big difference is interface in dash - much sharper and more details for upcoming turns. Will add more later...

I have the new navigation, but never saw these notes. Service center installed it. Am I to understand you correctly that this was not in the normal place where the release notes are found?
Did it appear only once momentarily after the install? Is there a way to see it again, (in the manual?..) or is it gone forever???
 
"Reroute if it saves more than" was a new option? I picked up my MX last week of March and had .6 version but I had the reroute if it saves more than option in maps that time only. Got the .14 yesterday and wondering how will I know once I get updates maps.
No. That’s been there for years. I guess some people never adjusted that setting though.

IMO choosing that option on the "old" maps is kind of a joke. The only kind of rerouting it really understands is "get off the highway for 1 exit then get back on", as if it just selects "avoid this road segment" internally every time it sees traffic.

I have to say, in the new maps, it seems like traffic avoidance is a lot smarter and more like Google/Waze.

Nav rerouting has been to me the single most frustrating part of Tesla's nav system. Probably everyone has experienced those really boneheaded reroutes, and the settings number doesn't seem to do much (if anything). If reroute actually works in the new update, with a reasonable confidence level, I say bring it on. :)
