Seen a few confused people on here. Have just been through the latest 'double update' and all is now working OK

The updates download (but don't install) while car is on (i.e. driving) to actually install the update you don't need a solid 4g connection. While actually updating you can't drive it anyway

Don't know if this is just me, but before first update many Amber warning lights appeared on dashboard... Lane assist, travel assist, cruise control, road sign display all unavailable

Got the message 'update downloaded' while driving. Then when parked up that night wanted to start it, but nothing in notifications like with previous update

So this time you get a message at the top of the 'goodbye' screen, when you park the car, like this...

Clicking on 'update avaliable' then brings you to a screen to prep for starting update... mine asked me to turn off the side lights (although the lights are always on Auto) before it would allow me to start update

First update said 70 minutes so I left car for an hour it was done. It asks for brief Internet connecting after update (I think this is just for car to report it has completed that update)

2nd larger update same process, but this time 170 minutes! Left it overnight

Good luck everyone!

It's amazing how many people didn't actually read the email where they agreed to receive the update.

VW also went to the trouble of creating this page, with pretty much the same information as the email: https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/en/owners- ... e-2-3.html

Hi

I’m having a very tenuous time with the update to 2.3

Yesterday all the driver conveniences became unavailable which is a symptom of the update being made ready.

I even received a message to say ‘update ready

But no install box appeared.

This morning same issue with the error messages for the conveniences. Then all of a sudden the errors went away and a message saying ‘update unavailable’

It seems this update has just disappeared

Anyone else had this issue? What should I do?

Frustratingly tantalising then major anti-climax.

Look forward to hearing back

Jason

What should I do?

Next time you get in the car, don’t press the brake pedal for at least 60 seconds.

Then at the end of your drive, the update should appear on the “goodbye” screen.

If not, check Settings > System information - there’s an updates button there.

If there’s no sign at all of it, contact VW, the iddirect@volkswagen.de address is probably the best one.

Great, thanks. My German wasn't adequate for the email.

Your VW profile is set to Germany as the country, that’s why your email (and the link you clicked within it) was in German.

I noticed (after watching other people's videos on YouTube etc) that a 'long press' of the home screen button brings up a 'service' screen, which also shows an update for the infotainment system

Anyone tried that?

Doesn't do anything on mine. Not on 2.3 yet and haven't been offered it yet either. (Did get the WeCharge update and the manual update)

Once the front assist warnings have gone away, part 1 is installed.

But you won't see any changes to any part of the infotainment system at that point.

After part 2 is installed you'll see a version of 0910 rather than 0792, plus the other documented changes.
