  1. RLink

    Yep an update is showing in my Rlink store (UK) shall download when I get home, if its for Coyote then it wont be worth much as that app is next to useless
  2. Map Update Data, 2 versions

    yep all correct, there is a 2017_06 for the portrait screens so would assume we should get this soonish (or not based on previous release dates)

    Yep, the imprint is required for map updates (and other apps) specific to your R-Link, the firmware from the website download doesn't require it. Just make sure the R-Link folder is copied across with the files inside it, not the individual files as otherwise the R-Link wont recognise the files. I'm sure others have had installation issues similar and you could do a wee search of the forum to see if there were other solutions.

    it sounds like you havent had your maps updated at all (i.e you have the first iteration) I think when I bought my car I had an update waiting which brought it up to 2015.06 ( i think) and that is why the update is showing for What Reg is your car? and do you still have Live Traffic? In regards to the firmware update you said that "It did recognize that I was trying to update the maps but not the Firmware just saying No Audio files". I had this issue also when doing it the first time. What I found was having a blank USB (no imprint) and dragging the unzipped 'R-Link' folder (not the individual files) across to the usb did the trick and also waiting a couple of minutes for the update to start once inserted into the car. The steps below are key I believe. Download the ZIP file of more than 600 MB. Unzip the downloaded file and put the “R-LINK” folder in the root of a FAT32 formatted USB key. In this R-LINK folder you have three files (The folder with the file is more than 1 GB): Eject the key of your computer correctly. Installation in the car Go in your vehicle and start it. Insert the USB key The system will now scan the usb key and verify the integrity of the files present on the key. The system will seem to be frozen for 2 minutes: no worries. Do not remove the key!

    easy way to fix the issues if you are not too sure on how to do it yourself is to contact connected services first (r-link.helplineuk@renault.com) who will arrange an appointment with your renault dealership to update the R-Link firmware (I think they can also do the map updates provided you still have a live subscription). From there the map update shouldn't prove too much of an issue if you follow the steps provided on the R-Link website, i.e. Sign up to the R-Link store Download the R-Link Toolbox Insert a blank USB into the kadjar to gain an imprint of the R-Link Stick it back into the PC and allow the Toolbox to download the update to the USB If the R-Link Firmware is up to date and you have a live traffic subscription just logging into the R-Link store should tell you if a map update is available. Early adopters only received 1 year free subscriptions but those who have a 17 plate onwards received 3 years free subscriptions. There is only 1 update so far and is 2016.12. Released in October 2017. Cars with the portrait R-Link screen have a newer version 2017.06 I find these pages helpful https://www.gps-rlink.com/r-link-2/r-link-2-install-an-update-yourself/ and https://www.gps-rlink.com/r-link-2/update-map/ and https://www.gps-rlink.com/r-link-2/download-r-link-2-toolbox/

    I'd redownload it, if you have 2.2.17 i'm surprised a map update came through the RLink store as this was the major issue in regards to 2.2.17 as it wouldnt allow a map update to happen. Unless you have really old maps and are downloading the 2015.06 map.

    yes you need to update the firmware before applying the map update. Once you update the firmware, wipe the USB then stick it back into the RLink to register it again to your car. Then pop it back into your PC and open up the R-Link toolbox and R-Link store and it should pick up that the firmware has been updated and the map will be available to download.

    I contacted renault customer services in regards to the voucher. R-Link helpline can only assist with technical issues and even then its not great! They will help you get the R-Link updated to the correct firmware. customer.services@renault.co.uk

    i've had this scrolling issue since I purchased the car in 2016. There isnt a fix for it yet I've been told, but to get round it you need to manually select a preset channel from the DAB screen then it starts to work again. Only happens with DAB, not FM/AM/USB/Bluetooth.

    The £75 is to cover the cost of a new map subscription, the firmware has been fixed to allow the Rlink 2.2.xx versions to update to the 'newer' version of the map package. Remains to be seen how many map updates we will get but it is a step in the right direction. The only other issue i've heard is that you can only update the maps if you have a Live Traffic subscription as well which costs £40. I was successful with my complaint in regards to not receiving any updates due to the firmware issues that I received the £75 cheque and also had my Live Traffic reactivated from Renault Customer Services (not Connected Services)
  12. Unable to connect to R-Link Store

    nope, wasnt before the update either and was still working
  13. Unable to connect to R-Link Store

    I've had this issue for a few weeks now (since 2.2.18 update) and havent found a solution either. Hoping the 2.2.19 update will resolve
  14. R-link 2

    do you have a live subscription or is the map update a free one to make up for the issues?
  15. Creaky suspension

    I had a similar issue at 6000 miles turns out the rear axle was faulty and was replaced under warranty. 13000 miles now done and no recurrence.
