I suspect that Chris (BatteryLife) has gotten the update. From his Patreon page:


a bunch of new stuff appeared in the past day, and it has likes and comments. But I haven't paid the money to unlock, so I can't say much more than this. Nothing on his youtube channel is visible yet.
I enjoy watching Chris's reviews, but they aren't worth $196/month to me. Most Patreon folks I know of are charging $5-$20/month.... that I could deal with. I'll wait for the U-tube video's to be released.
I did scroll down his Patreon page and found some posts dated 16-July indicating that none of the 'chosen' 15 had received their updates yet and he was guessing something was wrong with the system.

Chris mentioned a few hours ago that "Walter" informed him tonight that the download was commencing. Was going to keep me posted.

isn’t that 196 just the total revenue he makes monthly from all his patrons?

That is not the way I read it. Thanks for the clarification.

Chris from Battery Life posted a tease on his Patreon page, it says, "I got the". One needs to be a paying Patreon member to see the rest of the post. :(
I am guessing 'Walter' finally got the update and we will hear something from him soon.

Figures. Where is he posting this, anyways? Pateon videos, or somewhere else?

Based on the snippets you can see without having an account, it is on his Patreon account.

first update to 2.3 from @ID.Furkan is now on youtube:


Nothing really worth mentioning yet though. Seems all the interesting bits are in part 2, which is much larger and will contain the actual upgrade for the infotainment system.

The 1st part is particularly uninteresting to us in that none of us have a HUD. I wonder if the download is smaller, or the installation is faster.

It sounds like the 2nd part is just being released, and that's the part we really care about - it might be a few days before we see reports.

Yes it was released today.
4541

though besides the hud there are also improvements in the network connection, the adaptive lighting (another feature not available in the us) and something to the display of the infotainment. Need to see what the major update will bring

From reports I have seen it takes 40-70 minutes to install the first part, the second part is larger and it takes between 3-3.5 hours to install.
