No NAV blackout issues. Rides like a bank vault, the highest compliment in my book.

I don't know what alchemy they did, but I am truly happy!
My 2016 had the software update but the transmission still stumbles a bit in second gear up shifts or accelerating after slowing down. It's better with the update, but still there. Perhaps the 2018 "fix" will apply to older models with the 8-speed.

Something I can change in my settings etc. ? Or I should have dealer looked at it?
I thought it's always parking brake on, trans in park, foot on brake, and push the button to turn it off.

A 200 series (Land Cruiser and LX) can be moved with trans in drive and parking brake off. There are no settings you can change. Not sure what you expect from the dealer.

Off topic, do you know why your garage floor isn't level?
