I was wondering about that as well... lol The update is free as long as you have a cheap 4GB USB drive and a bit of time to wait for the update to finish so I don't know why they'd charge $25 let alone anything for it.

I'd imagine people would only pay if they don't have internet. Also the USB drive must be 32gb the updates are very large. So you get the update and a 32gb drive that can be repurposed if needed. The update is free and available to download if you have both internet and a 32gb drive.

□ [Improved] Automatic Tunnel-linked FM Radio Noise Control Function Added
▷ This function automatically reduces the static/noise caused by poor FM radio reception when the vehicle enters a tunnel

enters a tunnel, and returns to ‘Original Sound' as the vehicle exits the tunnel
▷ If the function is set to ‘Minimum Noise Reduction’ or ‘Maximum Noise Reduction’, the setting will not change when entering a tunnel



□ [New] Navigation Map "Black" Theme Added
▷ The "Black" theme has been added so that the dark theme can be used for the Map during both daytime and nighttime
▷ Set the theme by going to [Settings] > [Navigation Settings] > [Map Screen] > [Map Color]



□ [New] Valet Mode Provided
▷ To protect personal information, the Valet Mode restricts another driver from using the audio system without a password
▷ Check the vehicle status or turn off the Valet Mode using the smartphone app

Be careful if you're an Android Auto person, like myself.

The update turned the feature off in the head unit, and I spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out what got screwed up. Other thank that, it does make things nicer. Home screen has location info now, and they're a broken(?) calendar feature in the split screen that says I need to call UVO support for.

Hmm. That's strange. I updated it and my android auto works just fine. I am using Samsung S21 Ultra with Android 12 beta. Can you elaborate what you mean by 'Update turned the feature off in the head unit'? Does the android auto icon not show at all when you plug in your phone via USB?

That was correct. Kept getting a "Media Device Is Not Compatible" error.

There are settings in the head unit for both Android Auto and Apple Car Play, where those features can be turned off so the data port can be used without those features activating. Figured it out after digging through the settings.

Great. I did notice one issue today though. So earlier, if phone was connected via android auto the steering controls used to work, as in pressing the receive call button would take me to call log and pressing the mute button would not just mute put pause the music playing via android auto as well. Lately, those features have stopped working. Can you please confirm if you're able to do he same?

I will have to look into that this afternoon when I leave work. I've accidentally bumped those shortcuts while driving, but honestly, wasn't actively aware of what I had done at the time.

Only headache last night was when a call came in, the screen went blank for a few seconds like the headunit had crashe, but went back to normal once the call connected.

I believe they state that the maps have been updated, and probably a few other bug and stability fixes. The map updated was the one that stood out to me, though.
