How would they extract more money from you if it had just a standard usb connector?

Did you know the Russian tanks invading Ukraine also have Bosch components despite it being illegal to export them to Russia for military vehicles.

I also remember they had a spy at Dyson years ago.

Bosch seems to be a company with some very anti-consumer policies especially if you consider making weapons that blow up civilians anti-consumer.

Do you need the update? It could be something detrimental like anti-hacking software that is more likely to lock you out of your ebike. I'd want to make sure there are advantages before upgrading. It could be to reduce the likelihood of a fault but could also be motivated by their commercial interests.

What sort of dealer does not have the equipment to work on the bikes they service? not sure I would trust them with your bike SW. What's in thier workshop? a pair of pliers and a 5mm allen key? :D
