It is definitely an opinion, but VERY likely to be correct. The track record right now does not likely support the case for providing updates of anything other than data itself (which is what is coming over the air now). Look at some of the experiences here of the dealers. A notable number cannot even successfully install the updates on premise. It is possible that the WMA5 updates facilitated meaningful OTA software (not data) updates, but their failure to even anticipate the variability of installation conditions in those relatively controlled locations would leave any manager very leery of expanding the installation channels to include OTA.Is that your opinion or a fact?
How can you even tell what is being updated?
Unless you're a member of the Porsche software development team stop guessing.
Your word is as good as mine.
OTA-updates are for not having to visit the dealer.
All I'm saying.
You can't say anything about what kind of updates, you just don't know.
As you have observed, it is great that they have expanded the types of data that they are pushing via OTA to include other types of data in addition to maps (which was all that I was getting before the update). I just think that @chrisk is simply trying to prepare us all for the possibility that we will likely be asked to bring our cars in at some point in the future for the next round of software updates. I would note that you can actually see the updates in the notifications, which is why we can tell what is currently being pushed today.
