Why isn't there a section for all things software?

    I see driving Dynamics, purchasing, handling, UI but I don't see software section. I mean really?!? The only area of the car s/x/3 that gets updated every two weeks and there is no section for the. Mods?

    I see autopilot, UI, maps/GPS, fsd all part of this section. Is anyone listening?

    UI is misleading. I wouldn't put general software changes under UI if there is no changes to what user sees. If that's what that section is used for, should just call it what it is, software or firmware.

    I agree with Brad: UI is only a subset of software. OTOH, I don't know beans about software, although I'm interested in the software subsets of user interface, software-influenced driving dynamics, etc. So when you get them to start a software section, I probably won't have anything to say there. ;)
