I read elsewhere that Software Version 1803 is soon to be released by VW. 

Does anyone know anything about this version? Is it for the earlier B Unit or the current D Unit, for example?

I'd guess thats the D software track.... B should be either high 1600's or low 1700's.

There was rumour of a B software with android auto, but I've not heard anything about that since the rumour.

This software version 1803 has been updated on a few German Golf 8 since last week and it is only for the 816D/820D Infotainment unit. So far those that have this update swear it is much better. They say that with every update :rolleyes:

Hi, can I ask where the rumours of updated software are originating from? Is there any official communication on this?

I ask as I continue to have issues and my local garage are liaising with VW UK direct to try resolve so anything I can provide my local garage with may help.

Popped into dealer today so they could look at some faults. Came out with a cheeky software update!

Thanks for updating.

Would you be able to share you chassis number please? I am still locked in discussions with VW trying to convince them 1803 exists! I sent them a screenshot of your software but they have asked for the chassis…
