If you use the 'slow boot sequence', you might not have to worry about USB stick. When my display froze, I plugged in the USB with car off, then immediately powered up without waiting for the NAV to go active. I have a hunch MEDIA was still booting when I put the car in Reverse.
"Slow Boot" is to unlock car even if it's unlocked, hold brake, press ON/OFF for a full second (One One Thousand, Two One Thousand, etc), then wait for Phone, then Media, then NAV to wake up in that order.
This is just a working theory of mine after having trouble with NAV coming up, and having a blank screen once.
Note, I've had two other cars that did not appreciate Hop In and Hit It in a rush. These are cars with multiple computers that talk to each other with up to 11 different on-board CPUs. They also drove fine, just certain features would not work, like the stereo or backup camera.
I completely agree with
, slow boot is absolutely the way to go. That coupled with NOT connecting via USB (bluetooth is fine) seems to prevent any issues from arising. I only started seeing issues when i tried to attach my Samsung S8 via USB, before then NO ISSUES, after wards disconnects etc. So I do NOT attach via USB.
I will wait until some more software testing and updates confirm no issues, for then I will just have to "suffer" without getting google maps moving map satellite imagery up on the screen, OH the "Horror of it all".
Seriously, the cars runs GREAT, and yes getting the satellite imagery is REALLY REALLY cool. But I can wait, and still drive the coolest car on the road.! Without any issues.
PS Can you tell I LOVE the car.
