Still waiting for 1969 to drop over the air in the UK. Received 1941 ages ago, so I know the process works, but had nothing for 1969 even though it has been out for a while now.

I didn't think it had gone out OTA yet. It was my understanding that it was only USB/dealer installs that had it so far

I was on regular oil check at my workshop in Germany two weeks ago, they said 3 updates are waiting for me on OTA, but only 1 small fixes and improvements came since then.
Still on 1941 version, they said they will do manual USB update only if I complain that something is not working :(
So still waiting latest updates for my golf mk8 GTE 2022

It’s frustrating the car industry persists with this whole, “we’ll only fix if it’s broken” mentality.

With most other industries, firmware updates and software upgrades are encouraged, as it fixes issues or provides improvements.

Who is to say that there may be an issue in 1941, fixed in 1969, that I have yet to come across. Or some small timing issue, or improvements that provides better efficiency, or improves the while driving experience, that would one day save me a visit to a dealership, and their time and expertise.
