I've seen a few brief mentions about possible OTA with the ID.4, but nothing definitive. Has VW said anything about this? I have reserved one but the absence of this benefit would be a deal killer for me.
Based on my experience with my GMC truck and my BMW, the vehicle manufacturer will open the account with the service provider, you won't have to do a thing.I realize that I won't have to move all my phones to Verizon. What I meant was that I will still have to open an account with Verizon just for the OTA unless I'm missing something.
I have seen no mention anywhere of OTA being done over WiFi. Using wifi, VW would not be able to contact the vehicle, the vehicle would need to contact VW. With cellular, VW can contact the vehicle. My garage is all metal, with no wifi or cellular coverage inside, not sure how OTA is going to work for me.Carrier or no carrier i assume OTA can be still done via WiFi when sitting in garage and connected to my home network? Sounds like more efficient way than having to rely on spotty cellular coverage
