I’m waiting for 2.4 not 2.3 😀😀😀

I figured I’ve missed the 2.3 slow boat.

Nothing here either... I hope all updates wont be this slow to roll out, imagine waiting months for your phone or laptop to update!

I do sometimes wonder how VW can be so awful at software. Can't they just pay Apple or some other company to design the software for them? Perhaps then they could do software updates with some certainty that they will work and they would also be able to upgrade people at roughly the same time rather than having this length of time to get people's cars updated.

Well, as much as i'd like to pile on, I'm certain they'd release if it's ready. They did the right thing rolling out to a limited group to perform testing, they've clearly found issues, either delivery or in the update so taking their time.

What I think is bad is their lack of communication, it would earn them a lot of credit if they said "after the limited roll out we identified a few issues requiring further testing, next roll out attempt mid September" etc.

We're all impatient for new goodies they could use that to generate interaction and community instead of irritation and anger :)

They had originally outsourced it, but brought it in-house to help stabilise and speed up the processes - it will take time for that to bear fruit, they've said they will deliver an update every quarter going forward so they need to get 2.3 OTA rolling...

Any one had the email from VW (general release of 2.3 software) yet in UK? German members on meinid.com forum are posting “ received email for consent for update” hopefully things will start moving here as well.
