If you make a modification to your vehicle with FORScan (like turning off double honk) does that impact your ability to receive OTA updates? If you do get updates OTA,or from dealer will that revert changes you've made?

It shouldn't impact the ability to receive OTA updates. Certain changes could be overwritten, depending on the update. Most should persist through updates though.

The only thing I have had revert during an update thus far is APIM coding for the IOD cards on the side of the 12" display. The one update changed configuration to add the bed camera card, so my changes to add/remove them were undone. I haven't had anything else revert that I've noticed.

What did you change in the APIM for the cards? Did you remove them? Did android auto go full screen?

I disabled cards I didn't want and turned on the two off-road cards.
