Yes I guess if they use hexadecimal for the version numbers that is quite a difference. I know even mine is probably old too as I'm told by the dealer I need mine updated to fix a few issues mentioned in the KMH/MPH thread.

Personally I wish they would connect to my phones WiFi and pull in software updates!

Even my 8 year old Fiat had a software portal where you can download latest firmware to a usb stick and install!

Is it a simple series of key presses to get the versions on the screen? It may help others check their version if there was a post showing how to check :)
