Good evening all.
My Corsa-e Elite Nav Premium went in for a 3 hour software update under recall. It was in there for 6 days as they bricked the car, but that's a story for another time.
They didn't know what the update provided, but I have noticed 2 changes I wish to share with you.
The remaining mileage has become more intricate, specific even. The Corsa jumped in 7 mile chunks but is now more dynamic and will change in 1, 2, 3 mile increments etc. Much like my Mokka-e.
Keyless entry appears to have had a major upgrade. My car now unlocks upon approach, no need to touch the handle on either door or boot. It also locks when walking away.
Other than this, I haven't noticed any other changes. I was really hoping the auto wipers would stay active after a power cycle, again like my Mokka-e, but alas, they still need activating each start.

Regards,
David.

Good to know. Waiting until the first service in May when I ask they do mine.

Put mine in for it's 1st year service - more to get rid of the prompt on the dash than anything else.
Dealers mentioned a recall, which took them 4 hours! Good job I didn't just sit and wait for it!

My dealer couldn't do the software update as their broadband was not up to it!

I know it's a late response, but it's a service every 2 years on these. Bristol street motors tried to get mine in after 12 months and I argued the toss. They ended up confirming with VX that it's a 2 year cycle.

Interesting comment about the first year service (or not) as I had the same conversation last September, but the service did away with the prompt.

It will be due again this September.

Of note is that I am still not able to have the upgrade and recalls done due to the dealer's lack of broadband reliability.
