    Had mine done about a month ago. At first the dealer use the old "there is no recall on your VIN". Had to explain to him it is not a recall. After much discussion, he did the update but after waiting almost one hour for him to go look and buy a USB cable. Needs to connect to the BRP connect port and another port located behind the panel on the right side. Got the 20.8 now.

    your dealer is wrong, the latest for 18 & up is 20.8 be sure to tell them that it is the digital cluster software update.

    Has anyone seen a list of just what bug fixes, improvements and new features firmware update 20.8 provides? I got my 2018 RT updated to 20.8 last week but don't know what, if any, new features there are except for the miles-to-empty indicator on the dash. BRP Connect seems to work better now, but does anyone know what else has changed?

    Big three I know. BRP connect is more stable (on my bike), miles to empty, and you can now bluetooth FM and AUX signals to a helmet.

    Add another- The statistics for average speed and miles per gallon on mine were originally frozen on the total trip odometer, I think my MPG was locked at 70, not sure on the speed.

    That was fixed at firmware level 13.2. That is as long as both trip meters and total meter were reset afterwards.

    Ah, I see. I took ownership of my 2018 RTL with version 10.5. Seems like it was a bit behind!

    My wife just had the initial service done on her 2018 RT. As the dealer said, they installed the 20.80 software version and I now see distance to empty on the screen.
    What else does the update do?

    So? Does BRP not have mandatory schools for dealer techs? I see comments like this all the time, both here and on Facebook. My dealer's service techs seem to know what is going on and no big deal. Of course, I am fortunate that the dealer has a big trade in Sea Doos and BRP quads.

    The dealer connected yesterday my F3 Ltd to the computer and the system said there were a new cluster version and it was as "mandatory" to install
    After installation I can see the 20.8 version

    I purchased a new 2018 RT Limited July 1, 19 and had multiple issues which I was able to find from this forum. It made communicating with the dealer NOLA Powersports much easier. It all took several hours but they very courteous and professional and a job well done.

    I just had the 20.8 installed Tuesday 9/10/19. I had the entire left hand module replaced due to other problems but it solved the problem that I was occasionally having with shifting into gear without having to restart. The two front lower speaker grills were deformed, dealer replaced at the same time. I also had the belt vibration from 71mph to 72mph just enough to be annoying. My dealer installed the idler and as for belt damage, if my idler fails and causes belt damage then its covered. Since it's a new bike I didn't want to risk warranty issues.

    Thanks to all for the input, this forum is a great asset.
