Major software update is ready!

Post by scott28tt » Sat Nov 14, 2020 3:01 pm

I read online last night that the major update we’ve all been waiting for is ready for distribution, ahead of the original January date!

This is an English translation taken from the German First Movers group:

The final software for ID.3 is ready. Who would’ve thought that’d happen by mid-Nov? Certainly not the 1st movers!

VW will start informing about the rollout and release plans formally in Wk. 49. The dealers and workshops will get access to it and it can be expected that first cars to get the upgrade will see it happen beginning of December.

However, this won’t be the case for 1st movers as they’ve agreed to wait for the SW upgrade in Q1 next year. Priority is the standard delivery customers who’ve ordered and are waiting for cars with the finished SW. Exception would be a 1st car that reaches workshop for some other reason and they may get an update regardless.

The update itself contains the missing promised features like HUD and CarPlay etc. and a bunch of bug fixes, details of which will be shared with dealers. The update will take approx. 1 man day so all workshops will have to diligently plan the schedule based on their existing rosters.

Wow, great news, let’s hope they haven’t scrimped on testing to deliver early :)
Does the 1st Edition have a HUD?

No HUD on the 1st Plus, which is the only edition we have in the UK.

Good news regarding the Mayor update being ready. I own a Pro version of the ID3 in the UK. Do you know if the UK VW dealers will be installing the update before 2021 ?

From what I read it is being applied to new cars coming out of the factory, it will be rolled out to cars already in circulation, then to the cars of First Movers (who were given an incentive to wait til Q1)

I just getting my car back after 3 day's as it went in to look at door mirror heating not working, they decided to do a software update at the same time which was going to take 1 1/2 day, as there are 11 update I got told and then they have to re-calibrate the sensors.
Fingers crossed it won't need to go back in for a software update, I hope that was the major update then.

I hate to say it, but from everything I've heard you are likely to now have the 0570 software version which is NOT the major update mentioned above that we are all waiting for...

My ID3 is with VW still (since Thursday) and I believe it will also come back to me with 0570.

As above I don't have my car right now - but it is in the information in the Settings area in the infotainment system.
