Re: 2014 not even 100 miles and issues

^ Not a bug. Volume knob controls the Nav voice volume (up or down) when it's active (talking). Just don't turn it down so low you can't hear it, unless you want to reset it via the menu.

Re: Just got my free 2013 Map and software updates 2.126

2.126 is the newest version. 2.169 is older. The numbering system does not make a lot of sense.

Re: Select Terrain - more info please

"ESP" = Electronic Stability Program. Uses brakes to stabilize the vehicle. The Off Road ESP programs uses the brakes to mimic the effects of the electronic limited slip differential.
