Do you have certain times when you release upgrades (like once per year in Oct or something) or when ever you feel appropriate to do so? Thanks

Only when it's appropriate to do so. There have been incremental updates all year, but this version is now worthy of wider application.

I fitted the iDrive today and so far things seem to be fine. The car is certainly more responsive so I'll play around with the settings but I didn't detect any obvious issue with Auto Mate.

Well Iíve had my automate in the NT since Feb this year and for towing I would say itís an absolute must have.

I usually have it turned off when driving around town, I find the gear changes a little harsh when stop starting, not automates fault at all, I just like the default gear changes in stop start traffic.

Once we hook up the van itís a different story, I weighed the van before a large recent trip and was just under 2.6T

The difference the automate makes is like chalk and cheese driving with the van, it feels like I gained a lot more power with the torque converter locked and the gearbox behaved perfectly.

I found it hunting for a gear less, spent way more time in 5th than I would ever do manually on the freeway but the car just kept pulling on the inclines where I would manually change to 4th, on hills that always went back into 3rd at full revs it held in 4th and kept the car froM slowing too much too need 3rd.

Very impressed and recommend it even if you only use it for towing large loads.

My automate comes with an OBD splitter. Will an ELM327 BT dongle work connected to one end while the other end is connected to the automate? I should think it works but want to check.

Of course, that's what the splitter is for. I have an Ultra Guage plugged in to mine.

After arranging for the upgrade to Auto Mate, I received it back from Marshall yesterday and fitted it in the car this morning. Thanks to Marshall and Michelle for the prompt service and excellent communication.

If you are taking Auto Mate out of the vehicle, the instructions are very precise. here's a picture on mine with the plugs in place after removal of the main unit. The two plugs are required so the car goes back to factory settings.
