Does anyone know how long the update takes?

Just had a call (4pm) from VW to let me know that my car might not be ready to pick up from the dealer tomorrow at 1pm because it has just started a SW update (presumably 2.3). Surely it takes less than 21 hours, but maybe you need to acknowledge a couple of times to get the update going?

There's a little guy under the bonnet with a laptop typing all the code in line by line🤣

From what the dealership said, there must be a little man at the VW datacentre in Germany typing the code in line by line! They said it was going to be connected to the VW mainframe, but mainframes went out of use back in the 90's so who knows? Doesn't sound like the dealer does...

They probably connect to the mainframe using a 56k modem...

Thanks for the info...it's annoying as it was in the VW garage about 4 weeks ago and I asked to make sure the software was all up to date...they obviously didn't bother then :roll:

Yes they did, 2.1 is the most recent software which is generally available.

New cars are appearing with 2.3, I have it on mine as I volunteered to receive it early, but it's not released to the masses yet.

They'd have to put in a warranty claim with VW in order to be paid to do it, and it's due to go out as an OTA update anyway.
What happened to 2.2? :D
I'll just have to be patient and wait...

2.2 was an update for the ID.4 only.

When it happens OTA there are 2 parts, the first takes up to 1 hour to install once it has downloaded vie the eSIM, the second is larger and takes up to 3 hours to install once downloaded.

No idea if the dealer-based process is the same or different.

That’s assuming they’re doing 2.3.

When was your car built?

Had a message this morning saying software update do I want to view information, I was driving so didn't press anything.
When I got back in the car the message had disappeared and there was not information on the update page.
Did this mean that the update has been applied? the version number is the same, just wondering if this was the first part of 2.3

Had the same yesterday. Message comes up, filling the whole screen, couldn't read it (presume it needed consent to continue). As I was driving, couldn't scroll to end and continue. Pressed the squarebutton to be able to see other infotainment info and it was gone. Not back this morning.
