So just got back from Mercedes, after having an update done, so now successfully have Online music, also have the mercedes store. The software version does mention FU2 in the version number of the software.

How is everyone getting on after the update, also i keep hearing about "progressive" is this a feature ?

Cheers,

Tom

Wait new question, how did you figure out the firmware version?

Haha no worries, i got more than i expected then. i went back because gear changing in comfort was a terrible experience, this seems to have improved it.

attached some photos of the store. :smile:

Did you have any problems with the car or did you just want the update? I’m booked in but not sure if they will carry out an update even though I asked for it?

I had quite a few issues that it was booked in for, many were software related. It should have been updated by the previous MB garage but they did not do it, despite saying they had.

The update, whichever one they installed, has cured the acceleration delay and many other trivial, but annoying issues such as radio volume, retaining preferences and settings. Well worth the effort to get it done if you can.

It's interesting that there have been so many system errors on some models that have been curable by a firmware update.



My car is one of the older ones (July '18) and possesses none of the things described above (aside from saving settings; I would gladly have an update performed if it meant I could permanently disable the active lane assist, but I'm not sure that is one of the settings you can now save?).


Having worked for a long time in software development, I learned long ago that it is rarely wise to accept an update without understanding firstly exactly what is being changed - so you can decide whether you actually need it - and then waiting for a while for them to discover and correct bugs in the update. That particularly applies to MBUX!

Not all problems was curable with firmware. My first W177 ended up going back to Mercedes because firmware updates did not work. My new one is working fine, so I am a bit wary about having an update.

I wonder what else the new update adds as well as the store. I already have the progressive theme and Tidal option, if it is just the store then I will probably wait. I did receive an email from Mercedes saying that there was a new update coming in July, so I wonder if this is the update brought forward, or if there is another one due in a month.

Can you now control climate via voice or still no?
That has been possible since I guess the release of the A-class.
If you say "Hey Mercedes Help" it will then show you a list of commands it knows and you can use.
Ex opening the roof or changing colors
