      Yeah, as I mentioned before, dealers now have long awaited tech bulletin and disc for 3680->3690 updates. The label on the disc itself indicates that it can also do 2625->3690 updates, but it is not approved by VW for that.

      That said, I used the disc to update my unit that came with 2625 and it seemed to work fine for me during the 5 minutes that I used it. YMMV, as they say. I have been much less successful trying to get an SSD drive to work, though. So far the only positive outcome of the experiment is that I can now swap out an RNS-510 hard drive in less than 20 minutes.

      Any chance of getting an ISO image of that disc?

      No, unfortunately. I was using a disc that was loaned to me for a few hours. Also, my laptop doesn't have a CD drive.

      Dropped the passat off this morning for my 10k service. Mentioned the radio updated (I have the 26xx FW) got the huh what. Said he would pass it to the techs to see if they know what CD. Also going back that way in an hour with my Tiguan for 90 free check. That one has the 3680. We shall see if they upgrade one, both, or none to the 3690.

      I was able to get my replacement radio (with 3680) upgraded to 3690. Their tech bulletin says that 3680 is required.

      Hawaii. Helps that the senior tech said he went by the label saying 2625/3680 and not the tech bulletin that said 3680 only. That technically he wasn't supposed to do it but was willing to claim 'his bad on not reading' (the tech bulletin) if it was bricked and would have got me a new unit under warranty if it didn't take.

      My Dealership just called me, to tell me that they have just received the update today. After that all those days, I guess VW was a little late on getting all the VW dealerships the update. I have an appointment to update it on Friday, so I will keep you guys informed!

      My fingers are crossed...

      My Passat is at the dealer now for an oil change and I asked for the firmware update. I was taken seriously and the answer was not "huh?" so I have some hope of getting the update. I'll follow-up when I know.

      No dice...the oldest (best?) Volkswagen dealer in Milwaukee did not have the update nor were they aware of it. I'm becoming frustrated.

      Darrell,

      I have it hear for any of them.
      As soon as I hear I will let you know.
      My car is 9900 miles already. I will take for service it on Thursday no matter what, if they have the software or not.

      SOFTWARE HAS ARRIVED IN DFW AREA.
      Lewisville and Metro have it already.
      My car is having installed the software right now and also 10K service.
      I will post any more news as soon as I got my car back later today or tomorrow morning.
      Boardwalk does not have it yet. They called me this morning to let me know they don't know anything about t... and few minutes later Lewisville called me to let me know they go it in as Metro in Irving as well sent me an email that they got it too.

      Thanks for the update, sounds like I need to schedule an appointment with Lewisville.

      Not that far from Allen where I live.

      Please let me know if movie in motion is still working or not. Or do you need to reflash to make it work?

      That's a question that I made to the Foreman in the dealer.
      He did not know if the dvd in motion will stop working or not.
      Actually, I was kind of scary to lose the dvd in motion that I was thinking not to do this software upgrade...but hell, I took the bet.
      I have the dvd to run the software again in case the new upgrade disable it..
      I will keep you all posted on this.
