    Never heard of it fixing battery drain, i think your clutching at straws there, it removes the battery monitoring from the MMI and you have to manually put it back (if you had it in the first place)

    It has some bug fixes for the bluetooth and other bits, so it is worth doing to bring things up to 5570. But be aware if it goes wrong you can feck up a module and that can be costly.

    It's rare to go wrong, nothing happens if you don't put it back, you just get frustrated as your missing a function from the MMI.

    As you have such a high version already your not likely to lose functions that are there, it happens when you upgrade from lower rev software such as 2120.

    No it doesn't come with any, the disks are for installation by technicians so no instructions are provided.
