I am curious if anyone else is having issues with the software in the 2018's? My full screen navigation in the cluster works about 50% of the time, cameras don't always turn on, massage seats don't always work, menu system in cluster is painfully slow, etc... If this is common right now, I am not going to worry about it, but if it is only happening in my car I will bring it in.

I had similar issues. I picked up my 2018 at the end of March. I took it in for service three weeks later (largely to have roof rails installed) and the advisor indicated there were two updates on some items. Everything seems to work now, especially the cameras which were really glitchy. I just completed a 2600 mile round trip and had no issues. I’d say make an appointment.

There are updates, I'd bring it to the dealer. After my 2018 was updated I noticed quite a few changes. It still does some odd things now and then, but it's a lot better.

Mine is in for update. My Dealer told me that they received new software yesterday so Hopefully all buggs soon will be history.

Great to know, I would wait for the new version to be out for a bit before taking mine in, sometimes newer version brings newer bugs.

I also have the intermittent camera issues.

Another quick question. If auto start/stop is activated and you put the car in park, is it supposed to shut down?

Had this happen twice today, engine was off because I was at a complete stop and start/stop was activated. Put the car in park to reach and get something off the back seat and electronics turned off. Had to press start button again for the engine to turn back on.

Yeah, that's how mine works, park shuts it down if you don't disable the stop/start. I don't think my 2017 does that, but I also got into the habit of just hitting the disable button on the console every time I hit the ignition. I haven't gotten into that habit with the touchscreen button yet. Perhaps there's a setting somewhere to disable it, aside from killing the stop/start completely? I haven't looked into it at all.

I set the lower screen to Vehicle on start up so I don’t have to change from Climate screen to access the stop/start Button. That’s the easiest way I’ve found so far.

My software got updated, cameras and nav are much better now. The cluster menu system is still really slow, it takes 3 to 4 clicks on the steering wheel to get it to respond. Volume is also slow from steering wheel. Are you guys having that issue as well? I wonder if I have a bad steering wheel button.

Less than 24 hours into new 2018, got this. Went back to dealer said they have to do an update, about 3 hrs and could not have done it until errors showed and indicated an update was necessary. Sounds like really they don't want to update every car until they have to absolutely. Also, as an aside, not sure exactly what this means, but I was told by a regional mgr. that in about a month there will be a major InContrtol software update that will male the system look more like the '17's ----- whatever that means.

Just got mine back from 3weeks of software updates and I shall now have the latest SW for MY18.... First thing I noticed was that there was no 4G/3G connection and it says ”Reading simcard” and nothing happens. So back again to the dealer....The Internet conection worked before the SW update so I suppose that it is a new bug. Anyone else that has the same problem?

Lost my data connection today. When I opened the connectivity screen, it read reading from sim, but it would not connect until I turned off mobile data then back on.

Suddenly my data 4G connection start working again and has been working since then... So everything is fine. I have now the latest infotainment software and the system responds much better now with less latency. Looks promising.

Yes. I tried three different SIM cards without success and the day after it just started to work. Maybe they did something over the air but now it works as it should at least so far.
