The Corvette's Performance Data Recorder—which captures video and overlays metrics like speed, RPM and steering angle—is a great tool for enthusiasts looking for lower lap times.
But while owners have found the data useful, there have been complaints about the somewhat murky quality of the imagery. And in one of his periodic Q&As with the faithful fans of CorvetteForum, he addressed a question about the shortcomings, and more importantly, offered a solution, stating:
"Coincidentally, a software change was just released for Bowling Green production at the end of March and we will be making it available to customers who already have their cars in the next few weeks. The software includes several changes including improvements in color balance and sharpness of the image on the video."
How about them apples?
Now, lots of enthusiasts—including a large portion of the demographic served by CorvetteForum—love to hate on all the electronic gizmos so prevalent on modern cars. But a software update that corrects a simple, but irritating problem is one aspect of the binary encroachment we can get behind.
