I would like to believe them but having been fed so much BS from them before my scepticism is in overdrive.Beta testing usually involves a controlled test and customer feedback right? How can you give feedback to the uk help desk if they have never heard of it? Or are they lying about that bit.

It was my addition 'beta' testing. However it is controlled testing, they know what it is, they know where you are and they know how it's performing, how? Basically the cars owners who have it installed have signed away any privacy conditions by allow the transmission of data, they don't need human intervention as humans lie!

So there hasn't been any info on what this "new update" 2.2.18.590 will contain - was looking for any mention of android auto or smartphone mirroring really - I know even with an update the renault nav is going to be sub-par. 

It will still be good to get an update and see how a full software update looks to explore if any tweaking is possible.

2.2.18.590 doesn't add smartphone mirroring, and it's unlikely the version 2 software branch will ever have this functionality.  

Smartphone mirrors seems to only exist on the V3 RLink2 firmware which is for a newer headunit equipped to 2017 built cars.

Other than fixing your phone connection issue did you have any other problems that the update has fixed? And did you specifically ask for that version to be installed?

No never asked I called for an update on the r link and they said one was available. Not sure what else has changed as not had a good look yet. I dont know how to update my maps though anyone know how to do this.

Some say.... It will be an update in late November or in December, we will have to go to Renault service, it will take between 45 and 60 minutes and after that we will have 2017 maps. 

OK. Is this just a hope, is this 'baba čula baba rekla' (as I understand you are from Romania; this is on Serbian so I asume you will understand; for all other translation is 'I know one who knows one and he's been told') or  inside information from reliable source?

The plot thickens!!! My 15 plate car went into Wolves Renault today to have a few minor jobs done. I asked them to do the Rlink2 firmware update as well. Got car back guess what no update. Phoned up service and then advised my car has latest version. Asked about the new update and told they had tried this on several cars and it does not work!!!! Piss up and brewery come to mind!!!!

Somehow I understand... "Baba"  means in my language "old woman" but used as an irreverent way to address.  But AOne is right: I do not understand any  Slavic languages at all.

The info is from a guy working at Renault design center from my country. Maybe you know but Kadjar was designed by a Romanian at Renault Design Central Europe  from Bucharest. I posted the info because it was interesting and maybe somebody will confirm it.

Email received yesterday in response to a query (I'm sure someone else received something similar on a different thread):


Thank you for contacting Renault Connected Services Helpline.

You have reached **** **** and I will be assisting you with your query regarding your Sat Nav Map Update.

I can confirm that there is indeed a new Software Version for the R-Link 2 that will make it compatible with the latest Maps.

We are updating our customer's systems in batches, once we get to your batch we will inform how you can update. I can also confirm this is a free update.

Meanwhile, kindly send us the name of the Dealership you usually visit and their contact details (since this update needs to be performed at a Dealership).

I can confirm that I will contact you by email once it is time to update your batch.

😀 Don't worry. Obviously English is not my first language so I make a lot of mistakes. I assume that my posts are not easy to be understood but sometimes the info is really interesting... 

I am from Bucharest were is located an important Renault design center. Here Kadjar was designed. My info is not from Renault but from a guy who works (outsourcing) for them. So, even though all the info from this guy were 100% true, each time when I post here I start with "some say" just to mark it like an "unofficial info". Ok? 

I already have some bad news but I will be back in a few days. I want to check then first.
