SOTA / 19b

Post by andybanks » Fri Aug 23, 2019 8:16 pm

Had my car in the dealers today for lots of software related stuff, and found out some interesting info worth sharing.

Apparently 19b is now confirmed for September. It will fix audio issues and apparently the rear camera lag as it is all related.

SOTA does not update all of your software apparently. It will only do 'base updates' and small releases are made all the time which you can only get from the dealer. I was fully up to date on SOTA but still had other updates available.

SOTA also doesn't update additional software in the car. Both my top and bottom screens required a separate software patch.

Thanks for sharing.

I have the camera lag issue, but it was only introduced on the 19A update.
Looking forward to getting that sorted.

Audio crackling
Camera lag
Air Suspension issues

This is why I am demurring from updating from 18C until there is a reliable update coming - my dealer says September

Had 19b sent OTA to my Velar (in Germany) last night, pleased so far. The graphics on the 'Car' screen at the bottom are slick, the navigation with real time traffic looks clearer.

Mine's in the dealers again today. I tried SOTA last night (UK) and nothing was available.

I'll ask today about 19b and see if they know anything about it or have a release date.

So they changed the graphics too?

Will check on mine later...

EDIT - Not showing up for me, maybe they do a phased roll out?

19A has been working well for me, with the exception of use with my mobile. Strangely the 'recent' call list always appears blank and any shortcuts I set up for frequently dialled numbers no longer work. Hopefully 19B fixes this.
