R-Link 2: Update software

Last update: January 23rd, 2018

Keeping your R-Link 2 GPS up-to-date is important. There are 2 elements that can be updated: the system (software, firmware) and the map.

First of all there is the system software in general of R-Link 2: the operating system. You must be as up-to-date as possible because it’s like your phone or computer: the most recent versions correct bugs, improve performance and bring new features.


How to know the version of my R-Link 2?

To check the cartography you have to go in: NAVIGATION / OPTIONS (bottom right) / ABOUT.

To know its software version it is necessary to go in the following menus: SYSTEM / INFORMATION SYSTEME

There are 2 different versions for R-Link 2 2.X and 3.X. To determine the branch, the start of the software version number is based on the System Information menu.


What is the latest software version available for R-Link 2?

2 situations:

  • Your version is lower than (so from to the garage will pass you in without problem.
  • Your version is you can flip a coin. It is best to first ask the helpline if the vehicle (with the VIN number) is compatible before going into a garage. The helpline will be able to tell you whether it is good or not to make an appointment to perform the update. If the vehicle is not compatible today, the helpline forwards the file to the technical teams so that it becomes according to the returns of other members. See this page to install the


Renault does not communicate much about the changes between the different updates.

The version fixes a bug that caused problems with the bluetooth for Android phones 6.0 Marshmallow.

How to update the R-Link 2 software?

Today it is not possible to do it yourself on R-Link 2 (unlike R-Link 1), it is imperative to go into a renault garage to do it. I can only recommend that you do it and keep your system up to date. Experience shows that there are many corrections and improvements in stability and fluidity. If the vehicle is under warranty the operation will be free.

Exception: it is possible to install yourself the (see this page).


Bluetooth Problem with iOS 11 (iPhone) and R-Link 2

It seems that the R-Link 2 up to version included is affected by a problem of permanent connection / disconnection of the Bluetooth of the iPhone rendering inoperative functionality. Version does not seem affected .

Concerned people can contact their favorite Renault garage to ask to update the R-Link 2 (and therefore switch to which should solve the problem according to this message on a forum:

Here, as expected, MAJ R-Link 2 made today. Everything works again with my iPhone 6s under iOS 11. Good news!

  • Any news for upgrading from 2.X.X.X to 3.X.X.X ?

  • I have version 22.18.590 from the week.
    Why can I download the version as per the instructions?
    Entering the VIN number is the message:
    Sorry, this upgrade is not available for your Renault car. Please check the number.

      Perhaps because I don’t have all the answers 😉 (And a life outside this website)

      Technically 2.2.18 and 2.2.19 are very similar. The 2.2.19 is especially important for those who were stuck in version 2.2.17. If you are in 2.2.18 you will not gain anything in 2.2.19. 😉

    Hello from Iran
    couple of weeks ago i updated my Renault Talisman Rlink2 from version 2.2.17 to 3.3.16 by downloading the update file from a korean website ( http://tmap.co.kr/tmap_for_car/customer/slink.do ). but after installing i faced few problems. there is no picture from talisman anymore in the menus like drive mode or 360 radar or wherever i saw talisman before and also audio command doesnt work anymore. it seems it was designed for other renaults and not talisman.
    know i tried to return to 2.2.18 by the link you provided but at the time of installation it says you can not go to older versions.
    can any one help? 🙁
    many thanks in advance.

      You installed a Korean 3.3.16 version of S-Link(so Samsung motors and not renault) on a 2.2.17 version of renault R-Link? Seriously? and you are surprised that it does not work? 🙄😣 Where have you seen you can do something like that? Surely not on this web site … The only thing you can do and to go to your dealer to get a flash of the good firmware, but I am not sure it is possible… Keep us informed of the repair.

      Hi Johnny B,
      Out of interest aside from no pictures in the menus and the voice control not working, did the screen mirroring work when you updated to 3.3.16?

      I couldn’t care less what it looks like so long as the screen mirroring works. I am currently on Megane delivered 03.2017
      Many thanks

  • Dear Sirs.

    I’ve just bought ALL existing apps from R-Link 2 store for my new Talisman (2017) but I can`t find anywhere COMPASS app I would really like to have. Do you know / have any information where I can download it? (I have seen some photos of some R-Link 2 dashboards with Compass installed).

      Compass is 1 tile version of the navigation. Try long pressing on an empty space and select 1 square of navigation. It worked for me perfectly.

  • Hi, Has anyone had success with their dealer’s (anywhere in the world), applying updates to the software version 3?
    That is going from an older version 3 to the latest version 3. Here in Australia, Renault is saying that the system and therefore Apple Carplay/Android Auto cannot be upgraded on older models.
    I don’t think they’re correct on this and this only applies to the version 2 software.

  • I work in a Renault garage and i know from inside person is not for the moment posible to do upgrade from 2.xx to 3.xx . He told me that is not only software but harware also. I compared my radio model Radio65A ho now is have versie 2.2.xxx.803 whit a new scenic4 ho have 5he same model from radio 65A but versie 3.3 and phone miroring . So i wait now a answer from my friend ho works inside . 100% is another hardware bicause the referentie from my radio and scenic radio are not the same .

    Are there any people who faced with a problem “Out of memory. Requested 1701978227 Cache: 0” ?

    Absolutely the same problem is well known for ages on Android smarthones http://amichalec.net/2014/01/igo-out-of-memory/

    The oficial Renault garage can’t help me during month((((

    I bought the new koleos two monthes ago and a week later installed map update 2016.12
    I ran “R-Link 2 Toolbox” on my Mac. I do not know why but Mac OS made hidden files with extended attributes on prepared flash in the R-LINK folder. These files were transfered to internal R-LINK storage and now the navigator could not start. All other functions of r-link work well exept navigation.

    I have tried to install the latest maps 06.2017 but with no success. The process of installation do not start.

    The garage couldn’t reflash my r-link2 as so it is 3.3.16 from the plant.
