    You can not down load the update.

  • They probably found some bug with the update and disable it.

  • I already have the from the car dealer

  • Did you have the update done by the dealer at the same time as a service or did you just take it in for a software update which I understand is free if its in warranty?. No info on update 161 on GPS R-Link?

    I downloaded via toolbox. Did not try to instal yet in car.

    What does mean update improves bluetooth compability? It is just about bluetooth connection with mobile for for phone calls and sms? Or it let to connect aundroid auto via bluetooth?

  • Tried to update via tool box and it just says “There are no downloads” so unable to down load that way?

      I have the same problem. I have and the system sent the same message. You cant install and older versión.

  • Updated from to
    – First time it said you cannot install an older version.
    – Removed USB and put it back again in different port. Had to wait a couple of minutes before it said there’s a new software update available, do you want to continue?
    – Then it asks to continue, it will result in reboot of system.

    Update ran for about 4 minutes, then finished.
    – Did not find any difference yet except the version number.
    – Will have to wait and see if it improves Android audio and Bluetooth compatibility.

    I have installed by Renault service because my old system died while updating (it was 2.2-branch, lucky me, because it was done under warranty) and now I also have the Android Auto. But R-link store says that I have an update available and it says to install But numberwise that’s a downgrade, is there anyone that has done this?

      Oh, sorry, my installed version is .136, so I will update to .160!

  • kayuttata, like you I got my car serviced today and the version updated from 2.2 branch to You said you have Android Auto. Was it just there after the update or did you have to do anything to get it working?

      Hi kenny!

      It wasn’t automatically there so I had to manually activate it. But it is an easy job, you just have to go to developer mode (google the instructions) and from there to activate it. If I remember correctly I first went to gen_2.0 (or similar named) place where I first it activated Android auto and then I enabled it from the start page of the developer mode.

  • Hi kayuttata,
    you have already voice controls after AA activation from Debug?

  • Is vocal recognition still awful?

  • I waited for 10min after „Update found please wait…“ but the actual do you want to apply the update window never appears. What am I doing wrong?

    • Complete „deep“ restart of rlink (press on for about 10sec) and use of the other usb port did the trick. Update worked

  • Anyone got a Pixel 4 working with this version? I have problem connecting with both Bluetooth and usb-c cable. The connection constantly keep dropping and reconnecting
