So I got the second part yesterday and installed although I forgot to check the battery. It all went ok despite the battery being at 47%.
Noticed some differences on the display and had to reset some preferences but otherwise all good 👍

For interest, thanks to Scott, I dropped an email to that address to verify that I had consented to receive the update. Overnight they responded that indeed they had a record of my consent and politely told me to be patient. Patience is not one of my skills...

Once installed, apart from option to change menu button to VW or country flag I can see no changes on latest software. Though ID light had more functionality? Also does anyone know when WeConnect will have more features like checking car locked / lock car? Thanks.

The ID. Light does a few new things, I created a post this week: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1416

The main benefit to me is performance at startup and in operation.

Viewing the various infotainment screens is now done either via the icons (which now scroll left/right) or the widgets - press the home button to toggle between them.

No change at all to app functionality.

Thanks. I’d seen your post but weirdly my ID light seems the same as before so far…

The most obvious new thing in 2.3 is efficiency assist.

Prior to 2.3, you will always have had symbols appearing in the top-left of the steering wheel display advising you to ease off the power pedal as there was a junction or bend coming up.

Now those same symbols will be accompanied by a light blue block in front of the driver only on the ID. Light.

Since the update I find my car doesnt coast as long and freely as it did before in D.
You can feel the de acceleration but so slight it doesn't register on the green battery regen bar.
Im going to check tyre pressures today having adjusted them last in the height of the Summer.
In D now it drives more like an ICE auto with little engine breaking!!!
Something is different!

ID3 1st edition , my car is now 12 months old, all was well until recently had warning triangles and Lane assist inoperative warnings, happened twice and after a short drive righted itself, this week on all the time , called my dealer and it is now in to rectify the fault , and asked for installation of the 2.3 software update. I have had to leave the car over the weekend as they said they had done part 1 and would take several hours to complete? So holding my breath for the call on Monday to pick up. Some confusion as to whether I have to complete the installation at home. They first said I would have to install 2.3 at home but when I tried it would not go through. Some clarity and instructions from VW would not be too much to ask. I note my We Charge app on my phone has today updated. I will let you know the result.

I didi wonder what the significance of the new blue light flashing ul every so often was, I didn't make that connection at all.

I only drive in D mode. For me, the regen is still kicking in when approaching a roundabout or junction, or when using ACC and the cars in front slow down and the autobraking kicks in to maintain distance.

I've driven about 800 miles over the last week, most of it on the motorway and the only thing I've really noticed is far fewer false sign recognition changes in speed I'd attribute to signs seen on sliproads I didn't take or the motorway passing under a slower road and GPS/satnav picking up on the slower road (presumably)...and that mysterious blue light that Scott has talked about above.

I only experience auto regen in D if I have EcoAssist on. After 10 months I drive 95% in Comfort D and feel sure coasting has changed in some minor way on my car.

Well all done and the most important update/correction is that when I open the right hand drivers door the correct symbol illuminates on the dash. Well done WV at last!!!

If the dealer does it they have to get approval from VW to process the work as a warranty claim, or they don’t get paid - they may also need VW to approve your VIN for the update.

Hence why dealers are not “supposed” to do it, but rely on the OTA process for us to be self-sufficient.

Received the update yesterday, 30, Oct.like others had the error messages, then download 1, then download 2. All went well, so this afternoon had a drive in the Countryside!
Driving on a 50mph road heard a ping and notification I had exceeded the speed limit by 2 mph. Not too anxious!
Got out into the countryside and saw the road speed showing 30 mph on the drivers screen, despite the fact no road signs and the road known to be national speed limit.pushed the speed up and no ping or warning, just showing showing 30 mph road sign as the speed limit.
Anyone experienced the same thing and does it go away?
