The system is definitely louder than I need it now. What a difference.....

Could still use more Bass
Always can use more bass....has it improved at all with the update or about the same?

^ Not sure. It seems to also be better, but it’s hard to tell. I mostly just remember setting almost everything to almost max while towing, and it was loud enough inside the boat, but not crazy loud...... and I always had to have the tower speakers cranked to hear them behind the boat.

Now I am running the interiors at about 50%, and the tower at about 70% max. Anything above that is too loud for me.

This is awesome. Can't wait to get my software updated to hear the difference.

There is a new feature coming as well, called “spark”. But I don’t know what it is. It shows up in the settings menu now, but says “coming fall 2018”
I asked my dealer about the software update yesterday and they said their dealer site shows August 1st 2017 as the latest software update for all 2018/2019 X and XT series boats. Any ideas on what I should be asking for or where they need to look?

Also, would like to learn more about the extended range bluetooth antenna. Currently only the driver seat is within bluetooth range. Do you by chance know a part number for this?

New update is from June 2018. I think I listed the numbers earlier in this thread. It is available in the dealer portal, and includes a bunch of update specifics and details on issues that are corrected. It is technically the 2019 MY software i think, but is the software to bring the 18s up to date as well.

It is clearly in Dealerlink with the associated bulletin. I confirmed with multiple dealers, and got my hands on the software. I performed the upgrade last night, it was super easy.

They sent you the software to install yourself?
