I expect the RHR to have some minor hardware tweaks- for example, the current 430N RHB doesn't have the iPod cable but does have a USB port in the console to which you can connect a thumb drive loaded with media or an iPod USB to dock cable for iPod control. I'd be rather surprised if that change isn't made (they may keep the iPod cable in the lower console like it now has and just add the USB port, I don't know).
Really, what I'm looking and hoping for in the way of a software upgrade (for the RER) would be to enable Travel Link for the 730N (the 430N is also waiting on it), introduce hands free texting, and maybe even some refinements to media handling on the hard drive.
We'll see, but while I'm hopeful, I'm also kinda expecting disappointment- the engineers could have just meant that the maps themselves can be updates and not the core OS.
