"Dynamic high beam control and driver assistance systems

Vehicles equipped with dynamic high beam control can now be seen by other road users even better. In the future, your driver assistance systems will also be available while an update is being downloaded."


More easily seen by other road users? I wonder what that means in terms of the operation of the headlights?

I haven't noticed any difference, I was never flashed by an oncoming driver before and the vision was excellent with the graduated dipping - same now, been on 2.3 for about 6 weeks and done a few night drives.

I'm guessing 0% battery, aka turtle mode, but what colour/animation is used I've no idea.

There is one extra instance I've noticed since mine was updated, you get a light blue "flash" come up on the driver side as you drive along - I think it's related either to power or speed but honestly I'm not sure what it means.

I've looked for a "What does each ID. light colour/animation mean?" guide for 2.3 but haven't found one yet.

Finally received the email from VW this morning inviting me to agree to the software update. Will now await notification to download update in the car.
Got mine too.

Does anyone following this conversation know how long it will take to install? Hopefully there will be an option to schedule it or at least choose when to start the process.

Mine happened in August as I volunteered in an early wave.

Part 1 took maybe 10 minutes to download, and you're told it will take up to 30 minutes to install.

Part 2 took 20-30 minutes to download, you're told it will take up to 3 hours to install.

The downloads happen when the car is started, the installations when it is stopped and locked up.
Does one have any choice about when the installation takes place? After all, I know better than the car whether I'm planning to go somewhere within the next three hours! :)

Absolutely. It is offered to you as soon as available, it won't install while you're driving, it will appear on the Goodbye screen when you stop the car - ignore it til you're ready.

Excellent, thanks for that Scott.

Part 2 will change that to 0910, and add a new "ID. Software" category to the screen which will show "2.3.0".
