Imid 2012 -> 2013

Hello guys. I've asked our local dealer and also Honda CZ about update of firmware from 2012 Imid to 2013 version. I was told that it isnt possible. I would have to buy whole new Imid 2013 - 800 gbp for new control unit.

Did anyone ask Honda in the UK about this? I dont really believe that they would have to change anything in the HW. I believe it is just the SW issue.

Yep, many times and NO , it is not possible to update other than changing the control unit.

They do this on purpose LOL
I got mine 2000 cheaper or so because of the sale before 2013 model was introduced so I guess I can live with it

I asked Honda UK about this on a few occasions and they finally got back to me saying that it wasn't just a software update. It is a different iMid and would cost hundreds. As gloom said us 2012 buyers just have to put up with what we got or change cars.
