Cool, thanks for that info. It’s booked in with a dealer in a couple of weeks so fingers crossed… I’ve got a long list of issues!!!At the moment, OTA updates for the Mk8 are fairly minor. Things like additions to the online shop or minor fixes. They do not update the software version number (at least not so far). That takes 4 hours in a dealer hooked up to VW central.
I don’t remember what it was unfortunately, possibly 1644?What was it before the OTA update?
By the way, the latest software for that hardware version is 1803.
For hardware versions where the Device Part Number has a suffix A, B or C (or has no suffix like mine) then the latest software version available is 1668. These hardware versions were installed on Mk8s built up until 23 Nov 20. Earlier software versions for these units are 1650, 1664 or 1668.
Well your car is a my2020 with the first infotainment unit 816A same as the 816 (only difference being that either of them are installed based on the country of sale)
I suspect it’s because if the update fails you’ll be stuck with a broken car!Why oh why didn’t VW design their cars so that software could be updated over the air? Wake up one morning and everything is working tickets-boo and new functions have been added. Both my Apple iPhone and DJI drone can do this so why can’t my bloody car?
