Hi @JulianM - go to settings and choose ‘System information’ - that then shows you the software and hardware versions. Mine is still on 0564

Mine too is 0564 - despite the dealer stating it was running the latest release. In fairness, may be they are only installing later versions on demand.

I understand 0570 is a patch which is only being installed on vehicles suffering from specific faults

Car has now been with the dealers for four days. First software upgrade didn't seem to work so VW have sent an SD card!!! Not so much Over The Air as Through The Post ;) My vain hope is that this might be the full upgrade??? We'll wait and see :lol:

I too have had the airbag warning for a few days however never have I cared so little - love the car and appreciate that the car was rushed - they will make it right 👍

Reeeeeeeally missing car play! However I will also really miss the dash lights with turn animations - #firstworldproblems 😂

My airbag light came on today but went off again soon after, like you, I can't be bothered to take it back. Volkswagen will sort with the update I'm sure, so for now I will just enjoy it and suffer the lack of carplay :-(

Ah I caved. My airbag light stayed on for a week. Tried a few things found online including pulling 12v battery with no joy.

I took it to the dealer and they have tried reprogramming the airbag module in the roof however it wasn’t successful. ( or they bricked it!!)

New module being fitted tomorrow so fingers crossed 🤞

OK - so VW had the car for four days to update the software to 0570 and yesterday the alarm went off - obviously their bug fix didn't catch that one... I suppose I'll have to hand the car in for another week. Maybe get the promised major upgrade???

Does anyone know why it takes four days to do a software update? Are they using paper tape and a teletype connected over a serial port? ;)

I hope the over-the-air software update feature due soon doesn’t immobilise my car for four days when it does an upgrade!
