Since the recent software update the navigation system on my car deletes all the history, including any location set as 'Home', every time I stop and shut the car. Next time I unlock it, it is as though I am using the navigation system for the first time.

I have taken this up with Smart, and at their request I have just had it looked at by the dealer. No cure available,

Smart's last communication was -

Hi Rob,

I've not had any issues like this with my #1 Premium purchased in Sept 2023.
What recent software update did you install?
What version is your car now running?

Kind regards,

I've had it.

I thought it was linked to the profile, that was switching with me using the keys alternately?

Yes, have exactly the same problem since a software updated (I think early May). Was thinking of re-initializing the car software system to see if this would fix it. Very annoying as it wipes out your history and home address every time.

UPDATE: It turns out this wasn’t due to a software update. I went to the dealer and they reset the system, but the problem didn’t go away. It tuns out to be due to a “feature” - in the car, you can connect your car to your Smart app account (when you click on the profiles icon top right on the screen). Doing this displays a QR code you can use on the Smart mobile app (under your profile icon (bottom right)—“In-vehicle Display Log In”). This means you can now rename the profiles, and the car now stores your personal information (history, home, etc.).

I had done this when I first got the car but for some reason, this “connection” went away—so the car wiped out my personal data every time it stopped. Re-connecting the account via the mobile app solved the issue.

I had the profile resetting thing last week, first thing I noticed was the seat was all in the wrong position. I noticed my name was no longer in the profile, just did the QR code thing and it all came back. I had updated lots of APPs on my phone and wondered if that changed the APP KEY so the vehicle divorced itself.
