The problem is that in Auto mode unless it is very bright the dipped headlights/sidelights come on, even when it is a little cloudy. Surely this is not right.

There is a setting which is supposed to influence when the Auto lights kick in - I seem to recall there being 3 values you can choose between - have you found that and tried adjusting it?

Hi, after speaking to a VW technician a couple of weeks ago he mentioned trying that, which I did but it made no difference.

Has anyone had a problem with rear indicator not working?

Asking my better half to check on arrival but sounds like an old fashioned broken bulb (though all LED now!)

Hope not another software glitch !

My car went in to the dealership yesterday( 9.00am) to resolve the lights issue, along with one or two other minor niggles. Technician called me last night to say they needed the car overnight/tomorrow to carry out further updates etc.
Not sure if this meant they were doing the update from 0563 to 0783.
One thing I did notice though was that the WeConnect app is now showing SOC in 1% increments were it was previously in 5% steps.
Does anyone know if that happens with the 0783 version.
As of now I'm still waiting to hear back.

Not sure about the 1% increments but certainly there in 0783.
If the car has been updated to 0783 then you should also notice an extra option in the ID App - Departure Times on the Car Symbol Screen.
I hope your issues are resolved anyway.

Thanks Simon,
Yes I have the extra option in the app but as I've seen mentioned somewhere else It says in Departure Times ; Advance air conditioning to 19'C based on your current vehicle air conditioning settings.
They are already set at 19'C
Don't understand?.
As an aside, whilst chatting to the Master tech, he told me ALL ID.3's are fitted with 2- Zone climate control, and customers with Single Zone will be able to have the 2 Zone initiated within the software, but obviously there will be a cost involved.

In general currently certainly on the iPhone App, the information is not always reliable beyond just SoC and sometimes the commands work and sometimes they don't.
On my iPhone App the Departure Times screen is blank, if I intercept the communication and look at the status information sent from the VW servers, then the current car temperature doesn't appear to be in the information sent, so not sure that the app can currently get the current temperature.
Interesting if 2-Zone climate control is purely software, I guess it would explain why Voice Control doesn't work for single zone.
