Well? What's it like? :) Anything standing out as neat (or not)?

As you can imagine, we're all dying to know!

was it send to all CSP? Has it made it's way to Cherry Hill???
I have it. We've been struggling with a pile of some real difficult cars this past week. Will be a few days before we can come up for air. 2 techs plus me out in shop and we're still falling behind so I wasn't advertising software to avoid crowds lol.

Roger that -- I was just checking. Post or write when you come up for air and have a plan for us in virginia. Read on KA site Jost talking about an upgrade party, maybe they can sponsor for a trip to the national capital ;-)

I'll be down in next couple weeks to drop one off and pick up Jeffs car for RDM. We can do lunch at your brothers restaurant, I'll throw 530 in before the soup and salad ;)

Load about 5 cars. including one on the lot. drove the one we had on the lot over the weekend. everything functions great. no problem. looks like HVAC got better heat now. also BECM diag was improve. this car has a border line week cell and always throws check engine light on. With new BECM software it has not throw a light on. Also looks line engine management got improve with stop and stop go traffic also seems not to rev up as high. So far so good over all.

Joe, I sure hope my Karma isn't one of the ones causing you grief this week!
Fingers crossed!

That's great news! Just in time! I too hope 530 will clear my P1200 code as well. I have been resetting it every month with my little bluetooth OBD for the past 8 months. The Karma engineers have no inkling without putting a scan tool on it... so will be making the 4.5 hr drive to Frank Kent during Spring Break.

Had the 530 installed by HarleyGuy yesterday. He flashed my hardware to fix the loss of presets and backup camera before performing the 530 upgrade.

So far I've observed a more responsive screen and a new bluetooth pairing procedure ( I think, it's been a while).

Strangely, my fuel level gauge went from half to completely full as I pulled out of the Fisker Miami garage. I went to a gas station to find out what the real fuel level is by filling up. It took 6 gallons, so the gauge was not working correctly with the new software. There was no problem with the gauge before the upgrade. So I thought I would try sport mode for a while to see if the fuel level would go down. When I disengaged sport mode, the engine stayed on for the rest of my trip home. I'll drive to work with ICE to work tomorrow to see if it was just a fluke.

Anyone else have anything to report?

The issue with the fuel level may be this caveat that was outlined by KarmaNews in the 5.30 release notes:

"Note: 12v re-set or ECM re-flash
When the vehicle is 12v re-set or ECM re-flashed, the fuel level will show 100% full irrespective of what is actually in the fuel tank. As soon as the internal combustion engine (generator) starts the first time after a re-set or re-flash, the actual fuel level will be displayed."

Steven yes that is correct fuel gage fixes it self when you first fire up ICE. It was outlined in flashing procedure. - Actually it instruct any techs doing this right after completing software update

Also I notice you talking about your screen and pairing changing. 530 or 520 dose not address any of those.

BL530 - addresses:

HCU - Hybrid control module
HVAC - Climate control module
BECM - Battery module
ECM - Engine control
