Default GSD 26 software update

Seen there was a new software update in May. Was wondering if there is any glitches or concerns. It seems now days you almost have to wait a month or two before installing.

How do you update the GSD 26? Thru the MFD I suppose?

Yes. Pretty sure it's done through the chart plotter. Seen they had some improvements in the upgrade for bottom tracking. I guess if no one has written any negatives i should be good to go?
