Discussion: Canada/ NAV Update...
RE: The NAV update (addition of a mute 'button'), I thought this might be of interest to Canadian OB owners.
I was at my dealer today for routine maintenance: when I asked about the recent TSB for the HU/ Navigation (TSB is 15-205-16), I was told by the Service Manager (SM) that the update was only for US-spec cars. As a layman, this seemed odd to me: Canadian cars are manufactured in the USA and so I assumed that while things such as emissions/ markers/ reflectors etc., would be different to satisfy Transport Canada, I figured that the ones and zeros that make up the software for the head unit would have no difference. I guess I was wrong?
The SM said that the main reason why the USA had an update and Canada did not, was simply because of sheer volume of sales. Period. He also mentioned that yes, while that may not make sense to us up here who have, what appear to be the same cars as down south, the benefit to us is that all the kinks are worked out when updates finally arrive here.
Has anyone else experienced this explanation? Does it make sense? I'm keeping an open mind about it all and would love to hear what other Canadian OB owners have to say about it.
Everything is awesome and no-one is happy.
