Re: Navi 900 latest firmware

Incidentally I’ve checked for updates every so often using the built in UI but that’s never had an update in the time I’ve had the car.

You could drive exactly the same way with sport mode off. Firmed up steering is an argument on twisty roads. I hardly ever use the S mode on my cars. If I...
