I wonder if that will last. It is a "learning" transmission computer in that it will try to adjust over time to a person's driving habits. Its terrible in our 2017.5, as most of you know I have complained about it before. It could be that they improved the learning algorithms.

That sounds nice. Ours shifts so dang much for the slightest hill or breeze it drives me nuts. Hoping someday there is an update that will cure that.

Did you not have touchscreen controls in your old one? Ours with the 8.4 non-nav has both physical buttons and touch controls. I pretty much only use the physical controls.
