Software updates remove features, add bugs?

I’ve had my big bend mid since February and put about 7k on it since then. My infotainment system has been 99% bug free in this time. Over the past couple weeks I’ve gotten a handful of software updates and am now on 2.3.1.

Bugs/issues I’ve noticed only since getting these recent updates:

- Changes to fan speed and volume will not pop up on the screen within the first 5-10 minutes of a drive.

- Sound will only play out of the passenger side speakers. Turning it off and on again will fix it.

- The balance/fader screen used to have directional arrows for adjustment. Now it only has the dot that you have to drag around. Which sucks imo.

6/29 update

- now on 2.3.2, when you open the door and the animation on the center screen is done playing, the screen will display bright white for about a second then go dark.

Anybody else noticing this? I’m sure there’s more I'm forgetting, I’ll update this thread as I remember them/come across them.

What's an update? Do you have to connect your bronco screen to your wifi to do it? Because i hasn't done it.

I'm a big believer in, if it ain't broke dont fix it

Well, 2.3.2 is the latest and was pushed to my truck days after 2.3.1 - I’m assuming there was some glitches, hence the quick update.

Saw that one. The 8” screen doesn’t seem to be having the same issue. My CarPlay looks the same.
Yeah the 8" screen never did a split screen with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay so you would not see the background effect / box change seen on the 12" screen, and that seemingly was more a complaint about it not being able to fully take over the display, but then again it never did on the 12" screen.

The latest update seems to have fixed my Sirius going to channel 1 problem. The details on what the updates make changes to are pretty vague, usually two or three words. It would be nice if they would tell us what actual changes are being made and issues are being fixed. Y'know, just like any other company that does software updates.

Just came here to post this. Exact same issues. Huge delay also on changing the vent to floor etc. You press the button and nothing.
Sometimes you just wish engineers would leave shit alone.
I'm yet to see any advantages from this update.

The only thing that the last couple updates have added is the ability to give it voice commands like “set temperature” or other useless gimmicks.

I noticed an update about a week ago. Now when using Android Auto - Google Maps for directions, the directions appear on the screen behind your steering wheel. I thought that was a nice update.

My son noticed the fonts are different.

I also noticed that the radio station screen (FM) is updated. Seems nice to me.

I haven't noticed any of the glitches. I don't ever touch the fan speed (it's either on auto or off) but volume seems fine.

I like that they're doing OTA updates.
