Gosh, I'm glad I don't have a smartphone, I'm happy with the radio if I want some music and don't see the point of updating maps - this obsession with having the latest firmware seems to create a lot of angst!

That's what i've been thinking is it worth it, could anyone update us (pun intended) with the benefits of updating to the latest firmware and is it so much different.

Like others I don't understand how it works nor the need for it...My rule of thumb is to leave well alone the things you don't fully understand

I had the firmware updated yesterday by the dealer, first time it’s been done in 2 years. To be honest I can tell any difference other than the Bluetooth music connection skips less now

The only change I noticed after updating was the feature to copy an image from the USB stick to use on the screen, it's possibly it's been there all the time though as I haven't paid a lot of attention to the menus.

I thought this function had been removed for people who didn't have the jukebox though so perhaps they found a way to bring it back?

No Jukebox on my 2016 car but I have had a Darth Vader and Stormtoopers pic up ever since I got the car...

updated yesterday from 5.41 to 5.42. File taken from mega link. No problems at all. Tried to update to 5.43 but getting a message that the files are not compatible to my system.

Anyone know where I 'm going wrong?

I wouldn’t disagree with the point of not needing to update firmware, unless there was a significant improvement. But I do miss the twice a year map updates that I got with my Tom Tom.

Is it worth to update from 5.41.B.R4 to 5.43.A.R2?
