Cruise Control

Has anyone upgraded to this ?
If so did you do it yourself or does the dealer have to do it in order to upgrade computer if necessary ?

Life is what you make it.

I did it and I installed it myself. It is quite simple to install. However, it will not function until your dealer activates it via computer.

In my case, no need. I think it's an accident waiting to happen. JMO.!

Itís the best thing I have installed. Any input from brakes, clutch, or throttle instantly cancels it. On a long run, I feel much more safe being able to easily remove my right hand under power for a quick rest and blood flow. Itís great for heavily patrolled speed zones also.

I was really on the fence as to if I needed it or not. I decided to give it a try and I can say I feel safer with it.

I have it and use it regularly. Highly recommended and worth the investment if your journeys include stretches of long road/highways.
As mentioned above, the dealer has to activate CC via their software, even if you install it.

Since I bought and installed the unit at the dealer, activation (I suppose) was included in the overall cost & not charged separately.
