Does anyone have information on the latest version for the 2018 MY? I haven't seen an update but I have issues with Energy Assist and Android Auto.
Somehow, i've gotten the ear of someone in engineering @ GM (won't post their information for obvious reasons) "who is responsible for the 34.9.2 update". I'm asking why the 34.9.2 update isn't applying through tis2web, and if it's going to be available via OTA. I also mentioned a lot of folks complaining about instabilities in the 2019 and before MY. I also mentioned people complaining about losing video playback in the 2017 MY :D


Wish me luck.

I would be happy if they just updated the 2018 MY software with whatever fixes they put into the 2019-2020 version.

WOOT. I was getting my 2019 car serviced for the recall and was able to successfully get the radio update from the dealer!!! Tldr; I had to mention having the issues listed AND had to give them the service bulletin. Radio update was free under warranty.

I pick it up in a few hours and will post screenshots of the radio version.

I have a 2017 Bolt LT, the radio does weird things when I plug in my phone to start Apple Car Play. It won't load the map apps properly, almost like its stuck and I have to disconnect and re-connect the cable a few times before it will act properly. I'd like to get the software updated but wondering if you guys think that "symptom" will be enough to convince Chevy to do the update under warranty? I believe the version currently installed is the original version at release for my Bolt. Unlikely it was ever updated, got mine used off-lease. I would do it myself but haven't been able to find the current firmware file/download.

Might have to troubleshoot with another cable and separately with another phone. If you have the time, you could also try your phone and cable in another Bolt (go test drive one at a dealership).

Reviving this threas because I has a few basic questions about the software. 2017 premier running 14.5.0 C. When I check for updates it says the car is up to date. How can I confirm the latest software available for my car? I don't seeing a running list or version history anywhere. Also, I'm assuming GM will only allow the car to be updated at the dealer? We aren't officially allowed to do it ourselves?

The only software version you can see is the infotainment software. It has nothing to do with the battery management system or the recalls.

Yes, you are correct in that you do have to take it into the dealership to get any battery recall-related software updates.

The update for software was only for a fewest cars and I think 2019-2029.
You can download yourself but is really ridiculous slow, and only from you car. So is like a no real option.
Wen they replace the battery they update the software to, but the process and disposition from some of the dealerships is just no existing. Excuses and cancellations.
