Even a Tesla needs to be taken into the shop to do some software work. I don't expect the entire car to be on a network, and I just think it's a matter of time until somebody hacks a Tesla to commit murder.
The Jaguar promotional videos claim the entire car can be updated over the air, but my software engineering associates and I often use this this kind of phrasing when we have implemented some but not all aspects of a feature, suggesting there are other computer-based components that will still require a visit to the dealership to get a software update.The Battery Control Module is one of the first modules to be enabled for Software Over The Air.
No reports of OTA in the US. The only way to get an update is to visit what seem to be a select few dealers...So when I use the OTA interface and I check for both Battery and System updates, should I expect either to update?
It claims it has the latest in System, and then just spins the 4 green rectangles for the Battery forever.
What is the expected behavior and has anyone been successful with OTA updates for either?
JLR has a set of alpha customers in Europe that are taking OTA updates and using their feedback to tune the capability. JLR never stated the frequency of OTA, so I doubt that a class action suite would work. According to the UK user group, JLR is planning OTA release for April 8 in Europe. It's not clear if we will have the updates here in North America on that schedule.So, do we need some kind of class action lawsuit to get money back from JLR for not having the advertised feature that we "paid for" of SOTA updates on the 2019 car?
