Wonder if there's an option or a way for us to see an itemized list of any changes that comes with software updates. That would be super useful lol.
There is a screen you can navigate to from the page that shows the current software version, that supposedly contains a history of software updates. In that screen you can select between "System", "Voice Operation", "Radio", and "Other". That list is from memory, so I may have the wording slightly off.Wonder if there's an option or a way for us to see an itemized list of any changes that comes with software updates.

People have been seeing maps updates being delivered online, and the map version number changes. I haven't heard of anything else being delivered so far.This morning while I was driving a message popped up on my screen that a software update was available. I could only glance at the message since I was driving, but it stated something to the effect of "Minor improvements and bug fixes". It said it would only install while I was driving (at least I think that was the wording) and would pause if I got out and resume later. I clicked on "Install update" and drove another ~30 minutes to where I was dropping off my wife, then drove another 30 minutes home. I didn't notice anything different in the functionality or settings, and under System Information there was no record of an update.
Anyone else see this, or notice a change afterwards? I'll check on the car later this afternoon to see if the update shows up later.
If that's what it said, I'd guess it to be infotainment updates (such as a map). What's interesting, though, is why the car needs to be driving. My guess would be that it relates to low power mode when the ID.4 is at rest. But that then begs the question: could there be a drive/OS update OTA when you're parked, or would these only be done at the dealer?It said it would only install while I was driving (at least I think that was the wording) and would pause if I got out and resume later.
What is the car doing to make you think that?My car seems to be trying to update the software tonight.
A written message saying so on the infotainment screen.What is the car doing to make you think that?
Not trying to question but very curious. What does the message say. Car-Net seems down so perhaps that is the reasonA written message saying so on the infotainment screen.
Were you able to get an image of that?A written message saying so on the infotainment screen.
Actually updates are only performed over LTE, never wifi. It's a security thing.Sounds like it was the map update if the system didn't reboot or anything. I assume our OS updates will require the car to be parked and potentially on Wi-Fi to grab them, like how Tesla does it. The update can probably flash any module it wants in the car, and you don't want to be driving while that is happening. It will probably have a status screen displayed while updating that says "Please do not drive" or something to that effect.
