That is probably the truest statement ever on this forum!At this point, there’s no doubt that the fastest way to get the updated 3.1 software is to trade in a 2021 for a 2023.
Good luck. Keep us posted.I dropped mine off for the update yesterday
If you have a 2021 you have version 2.1 unless you have received the update and in that case you have 3.1.".
My lease is up at the end of April, 2024 and I am really beginning to believe the ID will go back to VW with Ver 2.4.
In an effort to keep this post accurate I was just pointing out the versions available in the US for 2021 cars. Ver 2.4 is not one of them.2.something isn’t 3.1 🥲
The 2021 cars that are being updated at the dealer are going from 2.1 to 3.1. This is supposed to make them capable of receiving OTA updates.I read somewhere that the 2.1 to 2.4 update required a flash of a BMS system to enable it to support future OTA updates, but again, that’s just something I read on the forum!
That is what we heard last year but I wonder if this is the way they are doing the current update. Maybe @VW TECHNICIAN can shed some light on the process.However... 2.1 to 3.1 (more accurately 2.1 to 2.3 to 2.4 to 3.1) was the plan from the start, as of last February, before 2.4 went gold, and before any of these recent update problems were known publicly. So it's pretty clear VW knew this update was going to be a problem.
So the dealer went 2.1>2.3>2.4>3.1?More law strict countries like US took more time to make sure all hardware parts in question are observed or replaced for future OTA. And it gives VW service departments learning courses for technicians to get more experience working with ID family of vehicles. EU will always be first for all future updates before is going to be ready for other markets.
Same way other manufacturers are doing.
Example Tesla is doing first US before the other markets in World.
So we have never had a successful OTA update on any cars sold in the US.All are done with ODIS tool connected revision 3.1.
