Do you have a mental memory map of the changes in the current and last 1 or 2 versions of every DU, Battery or Display or have you copied them and kept a record for yourselves?I will confidently inform you that an update is not "just to be sure." William and I have visibility to all notes and ideas that go into upcoming software updates. Not only do these updates fix bugs, but they install new advancements to each product.
A dealer may do this or may not. I'm sure they get asked a few times by customers.
Some of us end-users are curious to know if it's worth doing or not. Frustratingly we have no idea whatsoever though.
I truly am happy with my Bosch, don't get me wrong, i guess i just have too many expectations of detail & perfection from a German company
For example, Performance Line CX DU's existed on the market and then we launched eMTB mode, programmable via a software update. Same goes for Tour+ mode. The Lock Function for Kiox and Nyon was released via a software update---same goes for navigation on the Kiox.
If there was a changelog that listed the reason the torque upgrade is not available for a 2018 CX as for example (hypothetically):
"The 2018 or earlier CX model DU's have lower rated power MOSFET's in their electronics hardware as compared to the 2019 or later CX models, as a result the extra power drain from the motor needed to achieve the 85Nm upgrade would result in premature failure of those MOSFET's" or
"The enamel coating on the copper wire that encompasses the motor winding's of the 2018 or earlier model CX DU's cannot handle the extra heat generated by the 85Nm upgrade, the 2019 or later models have a more temperature resistant enamel coating"
Unfortunately for 2018 or earlier CX drive unit owners, none of these factors were foreseen back in 2018 (at that time, we were impressed with 75Nm).
I can't see any shame in educating us on these things and probably no trade secrets given away either?
Or the Tour+ mode is not available for manually shifted Rohloff equipped Bosch ebikes because...
