any details on the updates? what are we missing?

i finally got around to the radio recall (14.5 i think) and i'm unimpressed. even though i have audio cues turned off, i now get the startup sound more often, when i obviously shouldn't get it at all.

Updates are user selectable charge limit rather than just having 88% (Hill top reserve) or 100%, and the heat/AC control button is split into separate heat and AC buttons.

To @GJETSONS point, they are missing out on potential revenue and upsetting a customer base that expects updates when they market "OTA" as a feature in the vehicle.
Perhaps this is some what to the fault of Tesla for providing new features and a higher frequency of OTA updates.
I'm curious if we will ever see another OTA update?

I'm sure this has been asked and answered but can't find a link: does GM publish a change log or detailed release notes for updates?

Fairly sure uptake would be better if folks could read their fate before plunging.

Anyone have the part number for the 2019 infotainment system? Wondering if you can just buy it and have the newer functionality. Seems to me like it could be just that easy if the software is embedded into the actual screen/system.

I'm ok with the Bolt having the features, functionality and the buttons as I bought it on day 1. Which is today. I'm not going to lose one hair or one minute of sleep because next year I won't have the cool modification that will exist. I do expect them to give me an update if it fixes something that isn't working correctly or as expected. But that's it.

If you use Android Auto or CarPlay then your Bolt gets better as the apps on your smart phone are updated. For example, you can now ask Google Maps to find nearby EV charging stations. That's going to continue over the lifetime of the car, which is why I think this is such a great feature.

Does anyone know if Chevrolet intends to share the new 2019 software updates with owners of the 17 & 18 models?
Just curious if they will start to charge for updates or how the whole process will work.
Titus-Will Chevy (Olympia, WA) charged me $267 for a Software Update on my 2017 Bolt with 50K mileage. Yesterday I called 6 Chevy dealers to get a quote for a Software Update and they were: $148, $130, $149, $140, $160, $155--so there you have it. I need to complain...

We are all guilty of researching after the fact. Lesson learned to have a little patience when looking for the best price for all things.
