Hi all,

I have a 2017 R Sport with the larger screen and digital dash, but cannot find anywhere to check what software I am currently running and how to update it?

I have connectivity but only has bluetooth and data through the sim card. Live is running and I get weather and news updates and also satellite navigation view.

any information would be helpful.

Thanks

From memory go into Settings, then All Settings and the last option in the list is Software updates. It should tell you what version you are currently running and give you the option to check for any updates.

If the current infotainment is operating correctly updating may well introduce problems which as you are out of warranty you may have to pay for to get fixed.

I'm pretty sure what you want combined with the age of your car that is a software up date only the dealer can do and it won't be just one straight quick up date and off you go with that different screen layout you refer to. You will have to through a series of software updates to get to that point. I'm pretty sure like others have said they will charge you for it now. My advice if you have no problems don't do it. Any decent dealer probably would also talk you out of it. I personally like the original screen layout, colours etc and have never gone for any software up date as that side of things has pretty much worked flawlessly from day one. Appreciate that wasn't the case with everyone. I think the only thing that would have tempted me to do a software update back then was if it upgraded it from 3G to 4G but sadly no update is going to that on the older models. That's new hardware and that wouldn't happen.

If you like the newer screen layout and colours that much, change your car for a newer version that already has it!

new screen layout could also mean new hardware - faster processor to run a higher definition images for example, could also be different boot code which wouldn't be updated via wireless normally.

Thanks I appreciate your comments, very helpful until the last one!
My car is new (to me) so won't be changing it for a good few years.
It has (just about) everything I would like spec wise.
I will just have to love it and leave it as it is.
Thanks

Sorry Normski,

No offence intended with the very last comment. Didn't twig the 2017 car was newish for you. Like you say sounds like one of those things you will have to live with. Not too bad if everything else is sweet. I wish for a few different things with my car that changed with later versions but I still very much like what I have. I very nearly went with the software upgrade, had it booked in but a combination of events including at the time several others experiencing BIG problems afterwards I bottled it and never considered it again especially when I found out regardless of upgrade I wouldn't get 4G That was the only thing that appealed. Hope you have many years of joyful ownership.

Best

Arnie

Cheers Arnie,

I love my car and hope it gives me loads of happy miles, I do about 20000 per year so look forward to enjoying all those miles.

Thanks again,

I have recently had this very software update, on my 2016 Portfolio with digital dash and ICTP, it went from the original software to the newer version with the three boxes. It's well worth the £100 I was charged to do it, Android auto working well and Apple car play.

@paddypaws - was this with a main dealer or a specialist, will your car now get OTA updates?

It was main dealer and yes now has the OTA update button. Lots of little improvements well worth doing. A big improvement to the home screen button which now can be read!

cool gonna go for it, i have SDD and cold use that - not quite legit so am a bit cautious.
I have a proper diag tool also but i got SDD to see what it could do as we used to have a FL2 and the software is all a bit cloak and dagger with it.
The FL2 was basically a development model for that gen and alot is locked down!!

Which dealer did you use? I am struggling to find one who will do it.

Really glad to hear this; mine is booked in for 8th November and its supposed to be "complimentary" so will wait and see.

Its a good upgrade. I was told its complimentary if you are still in the warranty period. If not its chargeable.
Not in the warranty period, but its booked in for a complimentary upgrade and i have not been quoted a price; so will see what happens!
