      MIB2 Update now available...

      Credit to the fellow who posted this on MK7 golf. Just wanted to pass on the info and how is not a repost.

      VW just released an update for the MIB2. If you have any of the following symptoms and the software version on your car is below v0613, this update applies to you:

      App-Connect malfunctions or is inoperative
      Infotainment display goes blank or dark
      Infotainment system freezes or reboots
      Infotainment system turns off without input
      Display screen turns blue with “Emergency Download” error message displayed
      Bluetooth is unavailable or inoperative
      Navigation system malfunctions or is inoperative
      Voice Recognition malfunctions or is inoperative
      Settings in menu are not stored or missing
      Audio source changes without input after key cycle
      SD card malfunctions or is inoperative
      Loss of paired Bluetooth device
      Language settings change without input
      Loss of radio presets
      Announcement volume changes or fluctuates without input
      Loss of audio output

      You will need to go to the dealer to get updated, and the Tech Bulletin is 91N9, which you can download below:

      My car was at the dealer two weeks ago for this issue and this wasn't out yet so I think it'll be a little bit before people start taking their cars in for these problems and getting the update. Lets see.

      Any news on updates for 2015 models? Only update I've heard of is to fix the 87.7 radio issue, but that was a long while ago.

      I should be getting my car back from the dealer with a new head-unit plus this update tomorrow. I'll report any changes I see.

      Great update! I'm sure this will generate a lot of questions, so I'm adding some info:

      • TSB only mentions Hardware: 620 / Software lower than 0613
      • The TSB was published on December 15 and is done via SD card. I doubt dealerships have the SD card in stock two days later...
      • The Performance Monitor was added to Hardware 620 in Software Version 0612.


      Edited: Based on a handful of inputs in a different thread, I assumed Hardware: 620 = non-nav and Hardware: H25 = nav. marcg611 has a (replacement) non-nav unit reporting H25, so it looks like Hardware is not a reliable indicator of nav / non-nav. Device number may be a better indicator, but the point still stands that the TSB only mentions hardware 620.

      Hopefully we will see a similar update soon for the nav headunit (Hardware: H25)
      Wow now Im really confused if your model# associations are correct:
      I was one of the 1st to have the App Connect failure issue begining of September that killed my Module, dealer replaced MIB2 module and reprogrammed and ive had no issues since, But.... My Car is a 2016 GTI SE PP and now have Hardware H25 and software 0241. Does this mean they upgraded my SE to The Autobaun hardware with GPS and just turned off the GPS? Can I enable GPS with a VCDS? WTF lol..

      That's interesting... I don't see the NAV button on your headunit, so I don't know what to think.

      My Hardware / Software info came from one of the many Performance Monitor threads where people were trying to figure out what revision it was added to. All the nav people responded with Hardware H25 / Software 0245 (or greater). Non-nav people had Hardware 0620 / Software 0612 (or greater). Seemed clear cut, but maybe it's not?

      Edit: I'll have to go back and look at screen shots. Maybe device# differentiates between nav / non-nav and hardware is the supplier or something different?

      Re-scanned thread results, and here's what I found:

      5 Autobahn owners & 1 R owner (nav) reported:
      Device Part Number 3Q0035876
      Hardware: H25
      Software: 0241 or 0245

      5 S / SE owners responded with:
      device part #: 3Q0035844
      hardware: 620
      software: 0597 or 0612

      Your device number is 3Q0035878 so Hardware is not a reliable indicator of nav / non-nav. (Sorry) Reworded original post to indicate TSB only applies to 0620 hardware.

      I assume this doesn't add wireless airplay?

      Now I'm curios that I have nav mib2 module in glove box but non-nav display screen and buttons. After work I'll dig through my menus after work to see if I can find any other red flags, I don't have traffic button but nav should be accessible via menu right?

      The unit in your glovebox will need two SD slots (one for the maps data).

      No, we won't get that with this head-unit... The bluetooth radios aren't strong enough to run that much data currently. The software update will have to happen on Apple or Google's part first to streamline before this is even considered, so I wouldn't count it as likely.

      Not sure, but at this point, 3/4's of the '16 don't have it yet, so no one knows whether it's a part number difference (different head-unit) or just software. My MIB II just went out, but previously did NOT have the performance monitor. Tech is replacing with newer unit (different model #), so I'll see if I have it tomorrow.

      i picked up my 2016 gti on saturday, but the dealer said they performed an update when the car came to port in november... im guessing the update in this thread is a new/different update then what i got several weeks ago?

      connecting to android auto is a pain the ass.

      I just checked my car, Sept. 2015 build date, and my software version is 0612, so I will be getting the update at some point.

      I haven't experienced any problems yet, however.

      Check your Hardware version...$20 says it's H25, not 620 (which the TSB is for).

      It's not apple of googles falt we don't have wireless CarPlay. Apple has offered wireless CarPlay since beta iOS9 it's VW and the lack of wifi
