R-Link 2: the 3.3.16.96x update is avalaible for download.

This is a good time for Renault and the updates. After the deluge of map updates (even if it’s not finished), here’s a system update for the R-Link 2 that’s available since today.

It is 3.3.16.96x, so for the 3.3.x.y branch. This can be downloaded from the easyconnect.renault.com website (before renault-multimedia.com) , the same method than the 2.2.19.300 update.

You enter the VIN of your vehicle on this page (serial number starting with VF1 available on the registration form) and the site proposes the update for those who are currently in 3.3.16.940.

Then it is a ZIP to decompress and put directly on a USB key in FAT 32 (not in a folder). Inserting the key into the vehicle will cause a pop-up to appear offering to install the update. Of course, like all updates, it is made with the engine on. This should be fast: less than 10 minutes.

We notice that Renault has improved its download page by putting all the update process.

For this one we have patches for maps, Bluetooth compatibility and finally the correction of bugs contributing to the stability of the system.

If you are in 3.3.15.41x, normally no update will be proposed, a workshop visit will be necessary to switch to 3.3.16.64x.

  • Seems like Rlink system support is still nonr existent. My firmware is 3.3.15.406 on the 2017 Koleos Intense and putting in my VIN in the co.uk site says that this car doesnt need an update. There is no Easyconnect for com.au.

    • It is because you first need to ask to your dealer to update to the 3.3.16.64x. After that it will be possible to update to 3.3.16.960.

      • Thanks for the info. Seems like the online community knows more than our dealership. Dominelli Renault in Kirrawee Sydney is very behind the times. after a year, and two visits their techs keep saying there is no update. Cant help.Very poor Renault dealership

  • Hi,
    What version will I get after update? 7.xxx or 8.xx?

  • Hi. I have Koleos 2017 with version 3.3.16.946. There is no update available for my Rlink. Why?

    As well – when is it planned to have update to 8.x ??

    • No idea why you don’t have update.

      I do not think there will ever be an update to 8.0.x.x because it is a new software branch and probably hardware.

      • May you address my issue to a tech team to clarify why is there no SW update available for me and my version? Because i will be not the only one definitely with such version. Thanks

        • Hello, I don’t have a “tech team” because it is a personal website and not an officiel Renault website. You can contact the Helpline to ask them the question.

  • someone knows if this update solve the spotify bug???

  • I had my dealer update my R-Link 2 to 3.3.16.941. I’ve put in my VIN but am told there are no updates for my car. Why can I not get to the 3.3.16.960 update?

    • I have the same problem as you…. can you help us? I get the same message!

    There is a 3.3.16.966 out today. Seems to be something with bug-fixing to increase the startup of different components Renault-NL told me. Not more specific than this

    Mine was 3.3.16.961 (not 960). Would that make a difference with the 960? (netherlands)

    • Hello , the last number doesn’t matter ?, I think it depends of the R-Link 2 type and the map include.

  • Hi, is this update an option for a 2017 Kadjar, currently running 2.2.19.300..?

    • As written in the article, it is only for system with the 3.3.16.64x software version.

  • I’ve updated my Megane’s R-Link 2 yesterday.
    It resets all navigation settings to factory defaults and erases all saved gps places, including home place and workplace.
    Does someone knows if there is a way to backup data in the sd card or pen before doing this kind of update?

  • There is 2.2.19.40 in my megane. It doesn’t see the update 🙁
    I entered the VIN on the web site, and it said that the update is available. I downloaded, extracted and copied 3 files to the root folder of my music flash drive which works fine. But the r-link simply does nothing if I insert the flash drive and torn ignition on. Music plays, waiter 10 minutes. Nothing 🙁

    • It is probably because you have already the last update for the 2.2 branch.
      The update this article refers is for the 3.3 branch.

    • Hello you say that an update 2.2.19.40 is available on the Renault website for your Megane?

      • Hi,
        Actually no, 2.2.19.40 is not on web site. It is currently installed in r-link. The site (easyconnect…) verified my vin and proposed me an update in zip. There are 3 files inside. I copied them to flash drive root. Should I put them in \R-Link folder?

    There are 3.3.16.946 in my Grand Scenic IV. Appears to update!
    I joined the VIN on the site, and he said the update is available. I downloaded, extracted and copied 3 files to the root folder of my flash drive that works fine. But the r-link simply does nothing if I insert the pen drive and the ignition is turned on! What could be happening? Thank you

    • The files have to be out if I remember in a folder called “R-LINK”
