The CAD-IT application is probably what any software is upon the first rollout: incomplete and buggy.

Since INEOS hasn't delivered a single car to a customer so far, they don't have a reason to release it yet: they're likely happy to have a little more time to finalize and test their app.

It would be great if the Parts/Repair Application was stored offline in a harddrive integrated in the vehicle's display panel with periodic OTA updates, together with the Owners' User Manual.

Absolutly.

Being in nowhere in Daressalam or in Taka-Tuka-Land and having to find your spare parts and repair instructions online can get a bit difficult. The bitrate of bush-drums is low ...

Believe me, even a mature software for a new customer is something new, because they usually want additional features, e.g. (in this example) cross-references, that weren't there before. Or an integrated ordering system or a different database structure behind it due to a different hierarchical assembly organization and so on. Let alone DRM barriers to protect unauthorized copying and printing.

The other thing is the population with data as you mentioned. There will probably be a lot of open ends pointing to another subassembly and things like that. I'd be surprised if they actually got that done since the Grenadier is still a moving target.

But I agree that a beta-testing group made of "non-biased" users is a good idea.
