I did that but they haven't been responsive to that request.

Not a big deal except that on some roads with a speed limit of about 35mph if I stay within the speed limit I'm now prevented from putting it into 6th. Again, not a big deal, but this will tend to reduce gas mileage just a bit.

They changed this a few years ago. I can't remember if this was the same update that enabled creeping when you let your foot off the brake. I don't like either change, but the transmissions doesn't trip over itself all the time anymore, so it's a net positive change for me.

Zero change as far as I can tell from the reflash.

Yeah, I remember hearing about the update a few years ago but I never needed to bring the car in so I didn't get the update. I've determined the new speed that you can shift into 6th is 40mph versus the previous 36mph. With the older firmware if I was in 6th and the speed slowed down to as little as 34mph it would stay in 6th unless you pushed on the throttle or you started climbing a hill -- I'm not yet sure where the new firmware works with this but if it's like the previous firmware it should stay in 6th until the speed drops below 38mph.

I also need to check out the creep function -- was unaware of that change...

How have they "not been responsive"? What did they tell you when you called? Did they follow through? Did you follow up with a call? I called, told them Tom from Focus Power is my tuner I need the new strategy on the list and they said check back in a bit as we are busy. I called a week late to check up and it was done and on the list.

I called three times (mentioning Tom) and each time they gave me something different to try and I haven't had a chance to call them back. My business hours coincide with theirs and the last time they wanted me to have the car hooked up to a laptop with internet access but I can only do that at home. I should check with Tom again to see if he has gotten anywhere with the strategy I need. I though maybe he would contact me when he had it ready but no word yet.
