New ID. Software 3.2. The ID. Buzz Pro and ID. Buzz Cargo leave the production plant in the German city of Hannover with the latest Volkswagen software. Currently, that is the ID. Software 3.2. It facilitates, among other things, the ‘Plug & Charge’ function at compatible DC fast-charging stations. Furthermore, planning long journeys is particularly easy with the ID. Software 3.2, as the vehicle’s navigation system intelligently and automatically integrates the charging stops into the route planning (e-route planner). In the latest version the routing algorithm for this has been enhanced. The system also offers refined settings options for personal preferences: these include, for instance, a charging time optimisation function in order, where desired, not to charge for an unnecessarily long time at the last charging stop before the destination. It will also be possible to use the Apple Music and Spotify streaming services via the infotainment system, including with no connected smart phone. With the latest software update, the intuitive voice control system (‘Hello ID.’) in the ID. Buzz has also been brought up to a premium level.
‘Over-the-Air’, a new update standard. Via over-the-air updates the software and thus the operating system of the ID. Buzz are kept up to date. The updates are transferred directly to the vehicles’ high-powered computers. Within this architecture, the very fast computers take over functions that were previously split between numerous control devices.
