    I just ordered mine, can you give us an update on yours. Is it working good so far and do you notice anything is off?

    I order the "retrofit" kit my self and install it. This is just a new USB box in the armrest.

    The dealer did the update for almost 3hrs... but only charge me 1 hour of labour.

    On eBay. But you only need the USB box : https://photos.app.goo.gl/UPsJZBeRovKUBgkk8 i don't know if you can find this on eBay. maybe your dealer can order it.

    The retrofit kit came with the USB cable too, but you don't need it.

    You dealer have to activate it after, if you car is compatible.
