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…

They only said that because they know people are unlikely to share a VIN....

If Ubique is going to do that for you, do it privately not on here!!!

I would have thought my screenshot was evidence enough tbh.

Or they could confirm the update with the service dept at Beadles Chelmsford. 👍

Agreed but they specifically asked. Not a problem, presume they want to try understand the difference in vehicles (a point Fred has already covered).

Presumably nobody has told the dealer about the differences from bw48 2020... (and its not just the MIB unit!)

That will be because nobody expects a MY21 car to be significantly different to any other MY21 car and no OEM makes such sweeping changes without announcing those changes to their dealerships....

Yet here we are!  :sick:

I had already posted this somewhere else on here, but if it helps I don’t mind.

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

Has 1803 solved the issue(s)?

Satnav is definitely smoother and I did notice that the nav database has changed. However, on a drive today the speed limit display on drivers screen did keep randomly charging to kph.

So mine has been at the dealers yesteday to fix phone disconnecting, climate sync not working & a/c no cooling.

Compressor seals replaced and re-gassed so a/c works fine, phone has been fine too so far.

Climate sync - Still does not remember to sync. It does remember if I exit/re-enter the car straight away, however I've just done a few tests and it 'forgets' to remember the sync after the doors are locked for approx. 2minutes. (the same time it takes for the interior alarm motion sensor to work)

Only difference I've noticed on screen is I now get a snowflake system near the temp setting when I first press ignition.

Software is still on 1666, 'B' device, but then I've read people have had updates and still keeping the same software number.

I'm in the car 99% of the time on my own so for me the sync not working = climate not working.
Finding this highly frustrating after coming from a MK6, A3 8p, MK7, MK7.5 all with climate control that I didn't have to sync on every journey.
