Once I have the download on the thumbdrive I presume I put it into the USB port then start the car -- is that all there is or do I have to answer some prompts?

It's probably best to do it on a clean drive so that it doesn't get confused, but yeah, you just plug it in and it should start. You'll have to hit Okay a couple times through the process (do not just start it and leave when it starts. After it loads package 3 or so it will prompt you to say OK. If you don't, it will just sit there.) If it doesn't automatically run you can do the Install Applications option from the Vehicle menu and it should run then. Don't have any other USB devices in when you do it.
