Over-the-Air updates are downloaded in the background via the vehicle's mobile phone access while driving. As soon as an update is available, a notification will be available in the infotainment system and your ID. will guide you through the installation steps. While your vehicle is parked, the complete installation takes place and the next time you start you can enjoy the new and improved functions. Please note the further information in the digital vehicle manual.

Please note: In addition to ID. software updates, we also provide updates for pre-installed system in-car applications. These applications are not linked to the Over-the-Air ID. software updates and can be installed separately. In some cases, the latest ID. software version may be required.
