I know many of us either just got the car or are still waiting but anyone have any insight into what will come in the next OTA update?

I saw in another thread, someone said that a VWoA corporate rep was there at their test drive who claimed that auto hold would be coming to the US models via OTA. That hasn't been verified from any other sources that I'm aware of, though.

My dealer asked me to come back within 30 days for a software update. Did anyone else hear something like this?

Not sure if this is legit or if it's just a ruse to get me back into the dealer.

That seems pretty odd. Do you have the 2.1 software, i.e. build 0792?

Since you already have 2.1 and it enabled OTA updates I would say it’s a clever ruse. Maybe turn the tables and ask for a free car wash or some promo merch if you decide to go back.

As many current USA owners know, the "Auto Hold" is currently greyed out but thankfully at least a placeholder for an update at some point?

btw: my dealership scheduled me, on delivery day 'meet the service folks', for a courtesy 60-day 'revisit' so hopefully anything available they'll do, if not already OTA. Or at least I might get an oil change. :ROFLMAO: (that will never get old)

Per my sales guy, all ID.4's are requested back at the dealership for a check-up 30-60 days after delivery. My visit is specifically scheduled with the service manager.

Same here, it's on the window sticker under Packages and Options as Volkswagen Double Check.

For the first OTA update, I would guess that some of it will be code cleanup for efficiency and thus invisible to owners (perhaps faster execution of commands, less debug code).

On my wish list would be improvements to charging, throttle response, brake pedal feel..not that any of these are bad, but they may want to tweak those for better efficiencies or feel. And maybe some improvements to the UI.

I pick up mine tomorrow and already have the 60 day checkup scheduled.

Version 2.1 was released week 8, so based on VW brand CEO Ralf Brandstätter statement that "...Volkswagen will become the only volume manufacturer to provide over-the-air updates for the ID.3 and ID.42 every 12 weeks ..." my guess is May 2021 update. Given they will be chasing feedback from ID.3 and ID.4 launches, my total guess is a limited update (without plug-and-charge that was mentioned for "later in 2021").

Possible - I could see a minor bug fix release that also tests their update delivery infrastructure.

All of that, but especially efficiency improvements. I hope that there is quite a bit of efficiency to be had with fine-tuning each subsystem and fine-tuning how subsystems interact, all based on real-world data from actual customers.

And thats the key, as more and more vehicles are on the road, VW will have A TON of big data to work with. I expect that they are prepared or are preparing to acquire and analyze this all in really meaninginful ways.

If my nav starts working with Plug & Charge, I could wait for auto-hold.

The OTA update every 12 weeks starts after the FIRST OTA update which is planned for the summer as they said in the interview. So timeline would be End Q2/Start Q3 for the first ota roll-out. I would like to be suprised so mid-may would be a welcome one.

Im still running 2.0 :sneaky:

Hey Furkan, maybe you should visit your dealership to get 2.1 ?
(and Thanks for all your videos)
