I figured I'd start a fresh thread for us to share findings on the new software.

So far things I've noticed:
  • Apple Music sparks right up and works a lot more reliably. This is -without- the wifi hotspot feature, which expired for me and I didn't renew.
  • Apple Podcasts are also substantially more reliable. There were specific shows that the old version flatly refused to play; they now work well.
  • The park assist beeptone is slightly different now.
  • I checked out the charger search and filtered to 100kWh+ - found an EVSlow charger in Murphy TX that I didn't know existed.
Things I haven't yet checked, but I expect probably work now:
  • Does dynamic lighting now work with SiriusXM and Carplay?
  • Are trip "calculation thresholds" increased? Can I set a trip from Frisco TX to Flagstaff now and have it work rather than time out?
So far the overall responsiveness and fixes are making me quite happy indeed.

Do you have the five instead of the three icons on the left now?
Or did you have five already?

Don't have my car yet (late 2022 build awaiting boat), but can someone test out the spotify integration and see how good it is? Also if Android auto wireless works reliably? Those are the two biggest things I'm looking forward to

Not that I use it – I was all in on Apple Music anyways – but is there a Spotify option ?

I don't get this issue. I don't have the update but my Spotify works great. Its integrated into CarPlay. Maybe its an issue for Android users? Anyway, you'll be fine when you get your car. I listen only to Spotify and it starts up as soon as I start the car.

Spotify is now offered as a native app on the PCM, as Apple Music is.

Does the PCM feel more responsive/boots up faster? And any noticeable increase with range?

I have a March '22 build so came with Spotify from Day 1. It works well most of the time. I find that CarPlay deals with bad cell signal better than the PCM so sometimes native Spotify may not be available when CarPlay Spotify is.

Can somebody tell me if the new update makes it possible to use the Porsche Track Precision App? I have sport chrono on the car, but no app functionality. I believe this became available on later MY’s so was hoping that this would be part of the updated features :fingerscrossed:
