Software Updates (OtA)

Post by mike72uk » Thu Jan 10, 2019 5:15 pm

Just seen the following page on Jaguar UK website.

hopefully that means the over the air (ota) updates will be shortly enabled (I believe that some Velar owners are already able to update over the air)

I just checked my MY18 ICTP (currently 18c) for updates and it said there were none so I'm assuming that it's not entirely fully live yet as I believe that there is an 18d version now (I was on my home wi-fi network at the time)

Anyway, we live in hope, but looks like we might be a step or so closer !

Not sure if I'd be too hasty about enabling OTA updates, if they do materialise. With the connectivity issues some cars are apparently having and JLR's record on getting complex software releases to integrate seamlessly with the multitude variety of options we all have on our cars, this whole thing could turn into a complete owner's nightmare! Evidence the I-Pace forum, which doesn't seem to be an overly happy place in this regard.

Can’t help but think that they should just concentrate on getting the ICTP system stable and rolled out consistently before adding more features.

Most owners will be running and living with out of date versions of the software as updating it is such a time consuming and painful process.

My own worry from experience is when these updates are done at dealers who have all the equipment that JLR recommend and training, even they have had serious issues with cars needing new hardware, now if this same updates are done over the air you could find people with issues with there cars at stranded home.

My advice would be if you want an update get the dealer to sort it, that way they have the car if something should go wrong.

The SOTA switch in topix just hangs for me when I try to activate it, can anyone get it to turn on? To find the switch do the following.

Log into topix
Click "Try New Features of Topix"
Enter your VIN and find your car
Click top right "View all vehicle details"
In the pop up window click the tab "vehicle software"
Here you will find the SOTA switch

Can't make this work for me either, he doesn't say which fpace he's got, might be simon is driving something else which is already enabled, like velar or Ipace?
