Oh, you mean the WiFi squatters. Do you think they would even notice? I don't think I've ever seen one look up from their laptop.

My experience is that service advisors at dealerships know nothing about this system, are completely unable to troubleshoot them, have received zero training and in my experience, are a bit hostile towards customers when we ask questions about it...I had one guy at OC Acura actually get upset with me when I was trying to tell him it is based on Android, etc. etc.... it troubles me that dealerships know nothing about this system that basically runs the entire car.

Has anyone received the “second communication” referenced that is supposed to describe how to download the update?

Has anyone with a November build - as indicated by 11/18 at the top of the MFD. BY HONDA OF AMERICA MFG., INC. label on the driver's B-pillar - gotten the initial email? And yes - I have an account at owners.acura.com
Just wondering if my November build RDX already has the updated software. If so - looks like no Android Auto.
Thanks

Based on what we know...you connect to your WiFi network and then, through the infotainments menu, you select "updates" and it will show up and you select download. It is supposed to be that easy...we'll all know in the next few days

I do not believe that AA is a part of this upgrade as Google and Acura are still researching how to implement via the new tough pad based on what I was told by their client relations folks. However, we have all received such misinformation over the last several months that I'm not sure if anyone really knows until it actually happens.

Yeah I know how to do the update once it’s available I was more curious if anyone had received that communication yet.

You asked about "how to download the update" so you got the answer to the question. The communication from Acura will not come out until the 12th.

Same here...

I've seen features promised then later corrected and/or removed. Besides, Honda are waiting on Google. How interested do you think Google is in writing custom software for one, small luxury SUV by Acura with an interface that operates differently than any other in the universe of vehicles? They've got much bigger fish to fry.

I hope I'm wrong and an Android Auto update arrives soon for those who would like to use it, but I'll believe it when I see it.

That's the first of two e-mails that were allegedly going to precede the rollout of the OTA update. This is based upon an internal Acura memo, now posted in a sticky thread by EE4Life.

Since there was no disclosure to the motoring public that these e-mails were forthcoming, I guess Acura isn't breaking any promises if they don't appear. I just hope the darn update appears!

Agree! As long as we see the update tomorrow I could care less about the email communications. However those communications might be more valuable to owners that havenít been on this site and arenít aware of this update even coming out.

I'm bored, so I re-read the original posted memo and saw Acura should be posting something to the owners.acura.com site, so I dug around there a bit and found this:

Audio System Software Updates | 2019 Acura RDX | Acura Owners Site

Nothing yet on the pending OTA update.

But while I was on the owners.acura.com site, I dug around in e-mail prefs and discovered that there is a specific checkbox to receive e-mails for "Acura Navigation Center (Navigation System Updates)". It's under E-mail Communication Preferences in a pane on the upper left of the "My Account" home page.

I just got the information below off of my USB stick after setting it up to get the download.
It was a update_by_usb.json file in the "rb" folder. Also there is a URL link to the upgrade website which obviously shows no software update available.

Interesting portions of the json file

Nice find.

That garmin_maps_zip is indeed interesting.

Even more interesting is the TCU firmware. AFAIK that would be Transmission Control Unit. I remember a comment awhile ago from someone seemingly in-the-know who said updates were being delayed because testing needed to be done on anything that might affect fuel economy. And I couldn't quite figure out how the heck infotainment software could affect fuel economy. But transmission controls could certainly affect fuel economy.

But my very fuzzy understanding is that the data that's loaded onto the USB thumb drive from the vehicle is an "inventory" of current versions of potentially upgradeable firmware. AFAIK they won't necessarily all be upgraded during any given upgrade cycle.

Apparently the telematics unit also goes by Telematics Control Unit or TCU, which makes a bit more sense than the transmission being upgradeable over-the-air. Wishful thinking...

The infotainment system updates panel shows no updates. I checked it on my way out this morning. But it is still early. From what I can tell is that the 12th was relayed to the Acura dealer service managers in that memo pasted at the top of the thread and not to customers directly. So it is conceivable that it could have been pushed back with the dealers notified but we would not know. It is also conceivable that they are releasing it to dealers a few days before releasing it directly to customers so they can try it on a few vehicles in their inventory and provide feedback. I have no inside information on that though. The only communication I got from Acura recently was an email on how to set up for future updates without any specificity as to the date. I will probably just wait a couple of days and see if I get a message somehow on the infotainment system that it is available before going back into system updates to check.

Just checked and message said my system was up to date but then it continued to show activity and another message said that I could not update over Wi-Fi at this time and to try later. So it looks like there is something out there but it's not available just yet. I can try updating with a USB drive but the system does not say how big the drive needs to be so I cancelled out of that option.

Based on version number, this looks to be the same version already on vehicles manufactured in the last few months.

I was hoping it would fix the ability to interact with navigation while on a phone call, but doesn't look like it has. I cannot even cancel a navigation route when I'm on a call!

Nothing that directly states they have addressed the issue of CarPlay locking up the Infotainment system. ��

I'm trying to open the full TSB, but Honda's site isn't cooperating right now. It's usually very slow (like...dial-up speeds), but it's not responding at all right now.
