“The new ID.Software 2.1 is already on board as standard for vehicles produced from calendar week 8. For customers who have already received an ID. vehicle, the new software will now be made available successively. As announced, they will have to visit their dealer once for this purpose. With the new software, it will then be possible for the first time in the volume segment to update control units installed in the vehicle, among other things, without the customer having to go to the workshop,”
More and more carmakers embrace the concept of over-the-air (OTA) updates for their vehicles, and it’s easy to see why: they add extra convenience, making it possible for new software versions to be installed without paying a visit to the dealership.
