Well Iím late to the game as usual but I successfully bought an Upmap from GC and reflashed the bike this morning. Put my Italian to work but managed( after I realized there was an English version lol) Very pleased so far.

Used the aftermarket map no db killer. Much smoother throughout all gear changes and seems to have better or at least more linear power delivery.

Thanks to these posts I managed to avoid the pitfall of missing the wrong map. Thanks to everyone

I ordered my UpMap yesterday. Looking forward to it. Mistral exhausts with db-killers in already installed. They sound incredible. I unplugged the battery and connected again after a minute and the ride gets a bit smoother because the electronics adjusted the new exhausts by themselves. Do I have to unplug the batterie again before I use the upmap?

I didnít unplug the battery. I canít imagine it would hurt though. The instructions merely stated to reflash the bike cycle the key on off and presto. The instructions were pretty clear and I just followed them. Very pleased with the results. Running the zard exhaust without db killers and the ride is phenomenal. As stated make sure you get the us or European map based on your location and vin.

There's a firmware upgrade & map update available for existing owners of the upmap & V7 850. If anything the Centenario now pulls even better than with the original version of the Upmap map. There's no email notification regarding the updates you just have to plug in the upmap and turn on the app.  10 minutes tops start to finish.
I agree, I've done the updated map from Gcorse and I think it runs even stronger/better than the original one they did which was quite good. I'm also running Mistrals with DB Killers in. I also installed a Sprint high flow air filter.

At this point I'm 100% satisfied with the mapping/power/torque/response/smoothness and don't plan to change anything.

I agree 100%. I got the UpMap kit today and loaded it up immediately. It was really easy to do. And it's just phenomenal what a difference it makes! I had a huge grin on my face the whole test drive! It feels like a new bike! It's money well spent. Never before has the investment in an accessory been so worthwhile.
@thankchpel: What high flow air filter do you use? I tried a DNA with the original exhausts but I couldn't feel a lot of a difference. Does it make a bigger difference with the Mistrals?

Glad it worked out. Iím running the K and N air filter. I like it and in mind it makes a difference. That being said I donít have any numbers to prove it just that the bike seems to like it and is running well.

Not doubting any of the Upmap testimonies here, but my stock mapped V7-850 is the nicest running modern FI Guzzi I have ever owned, that is after I cured the hiccup caused by the evap system.  For once I don't feel the slightest urge to mess with the stock map.  The only change I have made is adding Mistrals with db killers left in.  It is one sweet running bike as is.

Oh that's interesting. How did you cure that hiccup? Did you get a warning by the evap system finding a leak? Because when I fist installed the Mistrals the ride was pretty rough in comparison to the OEM exhausts. It felt like I had to tame a stubborn goat.

My hiccup was cured with the evap system going to evap heaven.

The hiccup is a well documented issue that is caused by the evap system.

Taking the easy route I just capped off the evap control valve with a rubber cap, rather than removing the whole system.  Both approaches eliminate the hiccup.

Another problem with this system can be the tip over valve under the tank on the left hand line shown in Dave's picture. This can cause a vacuum build up in the tank. I noticed on my 850 an inrush of air whenever I pulled the cap on my first fill of the tank. I plan to either gut or remove the valve soon.
