Here's another one:

The ability to disable the automatic parking brake.

This is important for towing the Bolt on a dolly (rear wheels on the ground). As soon as I put it on the dolly, the car thinks it is parked on an incline and applies the parking brake. Currently the work-around is to disconnect the negative 12V battery terminal to ensure the brake doesn't engage on the road. Much nicer would be to select an option in 'Settings' to disable that feature.

I keep thinking of more stuff...

I’d like to be able to set the seat heaters back to Auto mode after setting it to something else. Currently it cycles between high-medium-low-off. Why not add Auto to that cycle?

Meanwhile back it reality, the chances of getting any new or improved function in the 2017 Bolt are near zero, IMHO.
GM has no understanding or interest in the benefits they would accrue if they behaved like Tesla, and sent out over-the-air updates that kept improving the car. As far as their accountants are concerned, there is no profit in that, only additional maintenance costs and service calls when an update goes wrong.
Shortsighted on their part, but that's the GM story.

The good news is that improvements to CarPlay / Android Auto are essentially integrated into the car through the screen interface.

Auto-preconditioning. The car already has a scheduled leave time, it knows the temperature, how about adding a setting to automatically start preconditioning so that the car is all nice and warm (or cool) when it's time to leave?

Both Nissan and Ford offer this in their EVs. I'm sure there are others as well. Why isn't this a feature in Chevys?

I think this software is much more than the "infotainment" system. Options for locking the car, and charging, etc. It is the overall software in control of the car.

Here's what's actually coming soon...GM has stated they're already begun rolling out the "GM Marketplace" to the infotainment system all 2017 and 2018 GM vehicles; I just searched this forum for marketplace and it appears there aren't any posts about it being rolled out to Bolts yet...Front page google doesn't appear to list a model by model rollout schedule, perhaps someone here has insider info to when the Bolt will receive this update...It'll automatically download and you'll receive a popup to notify you its been deployed...

GM Marketplace is extremely controversial...Like OnStar, Marketplace uses the vehicles modem even if you don't pay for a data plan which means that most likely it won't be able to be turned off...It has coupons/offers such as a free app at Red Lobster, allows you make a table reservation at places like Applebees, allows you to upload your credit card and book travel arrangements on priceline, pay for gas at Shell, order food and drinks and pay from the vehicle for places like Dunkin Donuts...In Dunkin Donuts case, there's the perk where after you order on marketplace, you can head to the drive thru, without ordering you speak your name to the speaker, continue to the window to pick up your order...You can use it while driving at any speed and GM actually states this experience was designed to be used by the driver while driving and doesn't even support voice support yet but will later along with other features in future updates...GM said they feel this is safer than using your smartphone...Finally they stated it'll "learn" and over time may display relevant offers which adds to controversy; hopefully every time we're near an Applebees, we don't receive an infotainment screen popup we have to manually dismiss...I haven't seen any mention of marketplace and EV chargers but that could be a great opportunity for GM with locating charging stations and steering you to locations which have their vendors nearby...

Good article including GM's demo video...https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/5/1673 ... e-shopping
