Same here. Downloaded and installed Thursday afternoon. I did get it pushed to my car by my dealer though so not was installed prior to it going in yesterday for for a new TCU to try and fix my random high data use.

Have a new Defender for the weekend from them so a happy chappy :)

Will do Haybrd.

Yes, Defender is great fun. Especially on forest tracks. Can’t really play off road as it’s not mine and have black wheels so best not leave any marks on those ;)

Really want one.

I just updated my 2018 Velar to the latest update S20C_20.43.1-618886 and now I'm having some annoying issues on the lower touch screen and knobs.

* Lower touch screen knobs no longer has the option to select terrain modes, it's just stuck on the climate control.

* When selecting climate control fan speed, it no longer remains on the knob it just changes back to you temperature control after a few seconds.

Quite annoying especially no longer being able to select the terrain drive modes with the knob.

Is anyone else experiencing these issues?

I'd recommend skipping this update. :roll:

It’s been like that since S20B1. Seems LR decided to change how the controls work and what’s displayed. I agree the fan change is annoying and in my mind not as safe as before. Now you have to find the tiny fan button while driving to change the fan speed.

Yes it's really annoying now, it used to be so much better before, wish they would revert it back to the previous way.

Is there any way of downgrading the software? Personally not being able to change the terrain drive mode with the knob is very frustrating.
