TFT firmware update?

Anyone know when the TFT update will be available?

Looks like it gives you some more adjustment of modes.

It's already available. Did you check with your dealer? My dealer notified me early this week and will be bringing it in for the update.

I guess I should have clarified as I was asking about Australia.

I'll call them tomorrow.

Definitely calling them tomorrow in that case!

I had the first service done three weeks ago, I wish they would have just done it then...

Are you enjoying the bike? Give us an update when you've done your software. Did you get panniers for it? I'm tossing between the soft and hard cases, can't decide although soft ones are much cheaper. I got the Nav 6 to go with it and it's really a good complement with the TFT.

This is probably the first of a few updates that will likely roll through over the next few years. Nothing critical but all good additions and worth having. I'm heading off to my local dealer right now to see if they can plug mine in.

I'm loving this bike! I have wanted one for ever, since I saw Long Way Round. In fact, my new number plate is LNGWY.

I got Giant Loop Round the World panniers, but haven't had a chance to use them yet... Been too busy house hunting!

I got the Nav6 also, it's great but I wish I could have Waze on it...

The Giant loops are on my short list because it will mount on the bmw racks. Let me know if itís a better choice than the hard cases.

Giant Loop will fit to the BMW racks, but you need an adapter for the exhaust side, for the step in.
AdventureMoto got it for me.

I can't post pics because all my stuff is packed up in boxes...
