The interface looks pretty much identical, without digging too much into it.

Yup. Besides a few minor things like valmundo mentioned, it's pretty much identical. Looks the same, same settings, etc. I got my car with 3.5.1 so can't really compare to previous, but no way to set the extra steering wheel buttons to do anything, and none of the other previous taken away settings people have mentioned seem to be back. I forgot to turn off the car completely and turn back on to see if it stays on the last screen, but since not much else has changed on the surface, I don't expect it will. I'd really like it to default on audio vs the home screen since audio is what's most useful like 90% of the time in the car. Hopefully some of the other annoyances are gone tho, like disappearing rear camera aids and audio that just starts playing random stuff off USB on startup instead of the last source. Those were the only 2 obvious bugs I noticed on many occasions.


Oh, and the clock being wrong after upgrade....it's actually right now! Since it was wrong before and you had to manually change the hour, since it remembers settings thru the upgrade, your now getting the right time + the previously made hour offset which is why it shows wrong when the upgrade was complete haha.

Touchscreen seems 100x more responsive. I don't feel like I need to mash the screen to get it to work. The entire system seems slightly more fluid as well.

I've generally had issues with stuttering when using Bluetooth, hopefully that has been fixed.

Okay. Here is what has changed.

First off, if you hit the voice paddle you get this which is kinda nice.

Second, the bluetooth doesn't give a crap about track times anymore which = SPOTIFY FINALLY WORKS AGAIN WITHOUT SKIPPING

The homescream now shows info from HD radio stations which i think might be new

Also, if you go to the info tab you get this silly extra button which shows you your coordinates. Altitude seems way off

Last pic is terrible so I'm sorry

Overall, bluetooth seems to work correctly finally and that is all I really care about.

Video here! I didn't really go too in depth and didn't realize my music was too low to hear... but when switching channels the music is almost instantly switched and playing, unlike before where it would sometimes take a few seconds and sometimes wouldn't let me switch channels for SEVERAL seconds after switching to a different channel.

EDIT: they fixed the "LED" on the AM button... there used to be an issue with one of the images they used for the "LED" light that looked bad... now it's fixed :D Also... my phone bluetooth listing had the three LEDs as well... but tapping the phone listing didn't do anything... dunno what's up with that. My Nexus 4 on 4.3 now transmits data via bluetooth, Pandora doesn't seem to transmit the artist, just song name, but Google Music works fine though. Also noticed that with v3.5.1 even being on 4.3 this feature did not work, and I noticed something about enhanced bluetooth on the phones again with this update.. so who knows.

EDIT 2: excuse the dirty screen, need to detail my car!

VIDEO!

Mine seemed stuck at 5% then 38% then just finished while downloading from the support site. Installing it in the car took around 30 minutes as advertised.
