My Taos downloaded and install a software up date today. Anyone know where to find detail about these updates?
Through the infotainment center. it was optional but I went ahead and did it.How were you alerted?
Got a link where you checked that? Thanks.My VIN is eligible for it according to the VW site, but I checked for updates on the infotainment today and there was none, so I wonder if I just have to wait for it to be actually pushed to the vehicle.
At the bottom of this page. Recall / Service Campaign LookupGot a link where you checked that? Thanks.
And I now really wonder if Car-Net is required for this.
Hmm ok I'll have to take a look.It appears you must have Car-Net enabled:
If you’re unsure if your vehicle qualifies for a software update or have not received a notification because you are not registered for Car-Net, we have a look-up tool available. Simply enter your vehicle identification number (VIN) to view any open campaigns, including software updates available, and contact your dealer for next steps.
NOTE: Your vehicle needs to meet certain conditions for the update to work. The green light on the 3-button module in your overhead console must be on and your vehicle needs to be in a location with sufficient network connectivity. If your software update cannot run over the air, please visit your local Volkswagen Dealer who can update the software in person.
Yeah this is kind of messed up, download and update done and confirmed be infosys and Car-Net, but entered the VIN in the look up tool and it Ella me it needs updating and to take it to dealer. Systems are not communicating with each other.
No, it’s not meant to.Yeah this is kind of messed up, download and update done and confirmed be infosys and Car-Net, but entered the VIN in the look up tool and it Ella me it needs updating and to take it to dealer. Systems are not communicating with each other.
For me the update:No, it’s not meant to.
That tool tells you if your vin is on the list of vins for each recall. That’s all.
The main reason the software has to be updated is because the backup camera software is so bad that it blacks out and freezes, which is a minor safety issue. My Jetta camera stutters and once in a while it just shows black. But the update also update also improves overall performance of the system.
I agree! I want to see whats new!For me the update:
Made CarPlay much much more responsive
Fixed the black infotainment screen issue
Fixed audio over CarPlay sometimes not working
Fixed an old cached GPS location making the map think it was in the wrong place
It would be nice to get release notes. And most updates these days are rolled out in phases in case something goes horribly wrong so may take some time for it to appear for you.
Overall the update has been a really good bug fix for multiple issues.
I got the notification with just the basic Car-NetIs this possibly a staggered rollout? VIN Lookup indicates there is an update available. Oddly, listed in red on the update page, it says "Repair Required". I have not received notification through Car-Net as of yet. I only have the basic features in Car-Net and am not subscribed to extra services. Wonder if that matters as far as getting a notification?
not sure about the roll out, if I do a MENU/SETTINGS/SYSTEM INFO via infotainment I get a software version #0813. What # are you guys seeing here? Initially, after the update, when I entered the VIN with the aforementioned online look up tool it said I needed an update and to check with the dealer. That message no longer appears when I run the VIN. I suspect that this update is infotainment only and has nothing to do with the ECU but really have no idea.
