Nest 2.0 Thermostat - Differences from 1.0-  The auto-away feature has been updated so that it will turn down the thermostat after 30 minutes rather than 2 hours.  Not to worry though because it does so with a more advanced statistical analysis of the owners behaviors and patterns.

–  Nest 3.0 software also offers an improved auto-scheduling program that can work in homes that have both heating and cooling. The previous version only worked with one or the other at a time.

–  The new software also offers System Match.  It was designed for adapting to a users’ home, even when using unconventional heating systems.  The Nest thermostat is able to learn how long it takes to warm your house and then plan accordingly for a set time.  Perfect for heating your home before it is time to get up.
