Few minutes ago I gave back rental Golf 8 United (maybe rent a car version). Discovery media
Compared to my 1664 differences are:
- no issues wit Carplay connection
- carplay menu speed OK (mine can be very slow)
- after entering adress and guidance in Carplay, navigation worked even on AID: arrows to turn, distance and road code. Makes me wonder if it works with HUD.
- parking sensors were more agile. In my case they start beeping at 1/2 m (2ft) -sometimes quite late
All the rest unchanged: after each start internet privacy stuff…
My turn for software woes as soon as i drove off this morning i got the message dynamic road sign display unavailable,Then travel assist unavailable,Then dynamic cornering lights fault,This kept popping up every couple of minutes,Lane assist was turned off by itself this carried on until i restarted the engine at some lights.
i get that message at least 3 time a week nothing to worry about , my new message of the week is "48v Battery Error please Tow to workshop stop the vehicle" followed by the engine cutting out. Rang the dealership and funny enough there's a software update for that ! i'm sure that's there answer for everything
Still a lot of bugs but no news on a newer software update for the 16xx brigade..
My Car is 2 weeks in the workshop for the rearview camera problem. The camera was replaced 3 times , the cabling all checked twice and the infotainment unit was swapped. Problem still present. Now they are talking about coding/ software...
And what about the Wifi 5Ghz which is disabled on my eHybrid. They loaned me a Golf 8 Life and I discovered that it is active on it, Wireless CarPlay working perfectly with no hiccups.
With two My2021 Golf 8, with only a week difference in production, you could have or not have Maps on the dashboard, AA wireless , Exit warning, Apple/Google directions on dashboard, Wifi 5Ghz, 6/7 different control units..., etc..
Massimo 2323 have you noticed if the air conditioning is sometimes working whilst plugged in and charging. My GTE hybrid does and I’m not sure if this is normal and is doing it to keep the battery cool whilst charging when the weather is hot.
I think VW should concentrate in sorting out all the existing problems before introducing new features like Exit Warning.
