The small update (not tiny as it corrects errors and adds some small functionality) is the precursor to the large one as it also updates the update service

It seems that after a successful test VW wants to role this out to all ID3s now. After it has been done in most cars and settled down they will then do the larger one.

It is logical there is a gap between them

The 2 updates that have pushed out over the last week only add functionality related to installing updates, plus a tweak to the digital manual.

Neither of them have been “part” of the 2.3 update as such.

I did get an amusing error though today after the tiny update, on a piece of road near my house I've been on many times. I set ACC there as it changes frequently from 30 to 40 to 60, back to 30 etc I went into the 40 from the 30, it though the speed limit was 110mph! Cannot be a coincidence that I did the update today and then now I'm getting this.

Many have reported a nav database update today to 21.7, mine got it too, that might explain this behaviour.

Interesting our nav db is at 21.7 this morning (was 21.5), wasn’t aware of any notifications and nothing else seems to have been updated though

Got the mini update others spoke of last week yesterday. Nav still at 21.5 though today.

Mine is doing the 2nd of the 2 updates as I type this. I've got everything crossed that it works ok and doesn't turn my car into a very expensive brick!

2 and a half hours left to go.....

I had volunteered to receive 2.3 early.

Part 1 downloaded on Monday evening and installed on Tuesday morning, part 2 downloaded on Tuesday evening (the next time I used the car) and installed on Wednesday morning - all working fine and I like the tweaks they've made to the infotainment system.

You now scroll left/right to move between the pages of icons (rather than up/down), and can easily toggle between seeing the 2 pages of icons and the 2 pages of shortcuts by pressing the home button on the right of the screen, the button itself switches between the square and a set of small icon squares when you toggle between the icon pages and the shortcut pages, making it more like Apple CarPlay. You can also set the home button to be a VW logo or a country flag - that's a gimmick to be honest!

There are new uses of the ID. light but I've not seen any of them yet, and new highlights for when the car is reading roadsigns.

Any intel on the wider rollout beyond first movers?
