My 2017 Jam 2 is due its “free?” 1 year service soon ...supposed to include software update .....should I trust my dealer ( claims no longer Focus distributer) to do it. Or is it really necessary anyway?
Anybody done the upgrade ....what is it anyway...if it aint broke why upgrade it??

Software updates generally iron out bugs that become apparent once an item is in widescale use.
If an item is rushed to market it can fix things retrospectively.
They can correct errors and improve protocols development team/item testers did not account for, as well as ensuring compatibility with any current or future auxiliaries.
It usually nothing to shy away from and nor is it scary or dangerous.
But.... the choice is yours sir.

You can upgrade the software yourself using the E-Tube app and the bluetooth connection.

I've just updated mine today via my laptop and the shimano interface, I've also done it in the past via the mobile app. I'm not sure what has changed, nothing visually.
