There’s a new over-the-air (OTA) update for the Proton X70‘s head unit, this time addressing a few issues that some owners may have been experiencing recently. The new 2.4.0 version lists 10 updates, of which are shown exactly as the picture above.

Notable upgrades include the removal of the “Locate Me” voice control function, wifi bandwidth channel adjustments (should make wifi connections more stable after updating), and improved air-con flow to the front seats. The GPS navigation has also been updated, now featuring “Home” address setting, improved 4G signal accuracy, and the addition of Point of Interest (POI) list.

Thankfully, the update also takes away voice reporting when switching between drive modes (someone’s been watching Driven Web Series!). Version 2.4.0 is available for update with immediate effect – do note that the file size is quite substantial at 786 MB, although the good news is it won’t eat into your data quota.

Also, as part of its Hari Raya promo, Proton is offering 50% extra internet data for owners who top up from now till July 5. However, do note that this only applies to cars fitted with the latest touchscreen head unit, namely the Proton X70 range, the Persona Premium, Iriz Premium and newly-launched Exora Premium.
