R-Link 2: Update software

July 24th, 2019

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 4 different versions for R-Link 2: 2.X, 3.X, 7.X and 8.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?

How to update the R-Link 2 software?

At the beginning of R-Link 2 it was not possible to update the system yourself. A visit to a garage was then mandatory.

Since 2018, it is possible for some versions to update on their own. In the table above, you can see it with the column “Update software yourself?”.

Explanation of the “Update software yourself” column?

No ❌ ➡ You need to go your Renault Dealer to get the update.

Yes ✅ ➡ Can do the update using yourself ➡ see bellow

  • Go to www.renault-multimedia.com
  • Click on your country
  • Click on the banner (or access via this link )
  • Enter your VIN (you will find it on your registration / registration card), it starts with VF1.

  • Download the ZIP file of more than 600 MB.
  • Unzip the downloaded file and put the “R-LINK” folder in the root of a FAT32 formatted USB key. In this R-LINK folder you have three files (The folder with the file is more than 1 GB):

  • Eject the key of your computer correctly.

Installation in the car

  • Go in your vehicle and start it.
  • Insert the USB key
  • The system will now scan the usb key and verify the integrity of the files present on the key. The system will seem to be frozen for 2 minutes: no worries. Do not remove the key!

  • A message will eventually appear asking if you want to install the update. Click on YES

  • Now patience! The system will restart several times to install the update, obviously we do not cut the engine and we do not remove the USB key!
  • A pop-up will ask you to restart. Click on YES

  • A pop-up indicates that the installation went well and asks us if we want to remove the update of the USB key. We click on YES

  • Remove the USB key.
  • Check on the screen Menu / System / System Information (2nd page) that you have the correct version installed (for example
  • To check if you benefit from a map update, I advise you to reconnect the USB key to the vehicle and wait 2 minutes.
  • Then connect the same key to your computer and open the R-Link 2 Toolbox and the R-Link Store to check for updates. If so, you can download them and install them in the car. Otherwise you can always subscribe to a new subscription to receive the latest cards via the R-Link Store!

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!

          Be nice and describe… AFAIK, this is not possible due to the hardware incompatibility and changes… Renault claims that this isn’t possible even if customer wants to pay the upgrade.

    Why can I download the version as per the instructions?

      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.

    • admin3553
      5 years ago

      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

      let me know

  • 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).

    • Orkun Kızılırmak
      5 years ago

      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.

    • In Poland I had upgrade from 2.2 xxx to 3.3xxx ver.During the warranty in my dealer. 1.5 EDC 2018 bussines ver before lift.

  • 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 .

    • Wow! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! This is something I would never think about! Yes, finally I got 2D compass (which is better than to orientate on 2D icon (pointing north) on the map 🙂 Thank you again!

      But on the other side – I am sure I’ve seen 3D compass, small as icon of “Lupe” (where you can + / -) while you are on full screen map. There was a small 3D compass rotating as transparent icon as you are driving, looks pretty cool. Maybe it is on Samsung versions, who knows. I will investigate further.

      Anyway – my car Software is:
      Boot is 5376 and Navigation no. is

      2 weeks ago I’ve look for updates (connected card on logged account on UK site) – no single update for Talisman (December 2017) 1.6 200bhp… As system is offline while you are here in Serbia 🙁 the moment I cross border (Hungary for example) – car “wakes up” and everything starts to work. As I bought nearly everything from the store… there is nothing left that is useful and looks like nothing is developing for R-Link…?

      2 months ago – Weather Forecast app worked great, but last week (in Hungary) – car was “only” online, showing traffic but Weather Forecast was “disabled” (like it is not receiving signal?)… Maybe some update is needed. I will connect my USB now and see if there are some news 🙂 Thanks again for your help!

      p.s. there is a guy from Turkey who managed to install Android system – he is even watching Youtube on R-Link; he added power train button (that Talismans with extended rear) has implemented, this guy from Turkey is very friendly and he seems the only one who is trying and improving by himself his Talisman and upload tutorials (translated on English with text) from time to time. You can learn some amazing stuff that Renault developers disabled.

    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.

    • Hello,
      I have the same problem with my koleos. In my case the problem gave me with the latest version, 06.2017 The Nv3 technical service does not call me to give me any solution. I’m like this since May.

  • Hola, buenas tardes, soy un propietario de un Renault megane, comprado hace dos meses, y con un equipo r-link 2 con la versión. Actualizada al y tengo problemas. Con el manos libres ya que se conecta al móvil y desde que recibo o hago una llamada se desconecta y ya no vuelve a conectar más,

    Mi móvil es un Huawei smart P

    Por mi trabajo, alquilo coches casi todas las semanas y de todos los tipos, y es una vergüenza que en coches de 2, 3 y 4 años de antigüedad, e incluso el parrot que tengo en el otro coche, funciona todo perfectamente. Y en este que es un coche nuevo, es imposible,

    Y la solución de Renault, es que tiene la última version y es incompatibilidad, con el móvil.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm una vergüenza es lo que es, que a estas alturas, hayan problemas de incompatibilidad con móviles, eso sii sólo con el r-link, ya que la competencia función a muy bien y sin problemas.

    Or will I have the GPS problems you’re talking about?

    I thank you in advance for your valuable help

    • Hello, 2 things about your message. First of all, I do not find it normal that the garage after the replacement of the rlink2 did not return you the vehicle with the most updated version !! Secondly, I confirm you that if you have, you can’t update yourself, only Renault can update it!

  • Incredible…someone change the head unit from 2.2.x to 3.3.x (or better with 7.0!), and other ones from 2.2 to the same 2.2!! I hope that all 2.2 are finished because on the 3.3 is possible to activate the carplay and android auto…

  • hi, i have a new koleos and i want to upgrade, but it seems that in the latinamerican renault webs, does not offer the upgrade option, as in other europeon webs.. however, i did try my vin code in the spanish and the english websites and appears to be compatible, i got the green tick, so i wonder, if its just a matter of renault politics, or just delaying the upgrade? and if will harm my system ?

    • Hello, good question… ? , Have you asked to the Renault Helpline? What is your software version ?

  • mine is the 2.2.17 and the helpline at my country says that there is no info about this, that there is no upgrade and blablablabla… i have the same problem with my dab radio, moves the tuning by itself, and from what i see, its a software problem, but they want to fix it by removing the thing and changing it…

Al marcar a Atencion a clientes me dicen que como fue ensamblado antes de diciembre 2017 no contará con CarPlay. Acudí a la agencia y me subí a uno de los modelos 2018 igual a la mía y si tienen CarPlay. Cuentan con un software Ya metí mi queja a profeco ya que no creo sea válido que ambas camionetas siendo 2018 unas si lo tengan y otras no siendo la mía la versión más equipada. Incluso ahorita todas las versiones tienen CarPlay. Y la mía siendo la más equipada no lo tiene. Por eso mi pregunta de si sabían de donde pudiera conseguir ese software e instalarlo en mi camioneta. Si es cuestión de hardware espero me cambien el estéreo con la demanda que interpuse en Profeco.

    2.hard v1( whit upgrade hard vers.3.xxx)whit soft 3.3xxx
    3.hard v3 whit soft 3.3xxx of 7.xxx
    Renault work whit 2 version of software 3.xx .But they are not the same . One is for old hardware an the other for the nieuwe hardware. Do not try to instal one version of soft3 if you are not sure if it is for hard v1 of v3.
    Today i succedet to instal 3.3.xxx to a Talisman whit 2.2….803 . But i failed to instal to the last version 2.2.xxx 911 i think it is .

    • HI Victor,
      Could you explain a litlle more about how you find the hardware version?
      I have the RLink 2 with Software 2.2 and I would like to upgrade to 3 in order to activate Android auto. My car is a new Koleos from may 2017 with 7″ screen.

      Hi Victor, I extremely need your help.

      Many Thanks!!

    • Hi Victor, please can you explain how to upgrade from 2.2 to 3.3? Thanks so much.

      EDIT admin: I highly not recommend this manipulation (install a soft on a hard not planned for that …), patience, official manipulation is approaching.

      • Hi ADMIN, “patience, official manipulation is approaching” do you have some information? Kindly share some information …. thank you

        • Hello, nothing official but this should happen quickly. There was a test period done in some garages to switch from a soft version 2.x to 7.x. That’s why I recommend to wait and not do the manipulation to switch to 3.x because I don’t know if it will then be possible to switch from 3.x to 7.x.

            I heard yesterday, that it should be released to the official Renault dealers monday or tuesday this week. Only the dealers should be able to update from 2.X to 7.X … and they they might only do it on units that have “issues”.

          • Otto Freiburg
            4 years ago

            Internally at Renault it should be called solution ACTIS 49605 – to update R-Link 2 units from before March 2017 to 7.XX – I got my Talisman in the Renault Garage right now (battery dead after 2.5 years ….and only 47.000KM) and I have asked them to look for the solution and update my unit. I will let you know how it goes.

            Still waiting to get my car back – apparently they are having trouble applying the fix. They had to send video of the process to Renault, and they are now waiting for Renault to come back with a solution as to why it is bugging. Will keep you posted.

            Picked my car up again yesterday – They did not get it to work. They are waiting for answers from Renault France, on why it did not work, and what they have to do to make it work. When they have news, they will call my car back in the garage.

          • Otto Freiburg are there any news on your Rlink2? Have they called you to finish the job?

  • Hi Admin!

    I have the software update on my megane IV 2016 MY but I cant seem to make Tomtom live traffic work at all. I am here in Australia and when I go to the rlink store, it stated awaiting activation.. Kindly assist – Don

    • Hello Don,
      It’s strange. I don’t think I’ll be able to help you for that. Have you try to contact the Australia Helpline ?

      • I havent tried calling them but because renault is not very popular here (market share is only 1%), I didnt bother. I had my car serviced a few months ago and told them to update my GPS and they said no update at that time. But after visiting your website, i managed to update from to and managed to update my maps too which the dealership here didnt even bother.. You are my saving grace and Thank you.. Hopefully I can make live traffic work as it never worked from the beginning

        • Hey Don.

          Yup when it comes to the RLink they are hopeless. All show and no go unfortunately. The TomTom Live Traffic you have to register on the AU site as you probably have already. Then you goto you car and tap on the “Stickynote icon” and tap on activate.

          If the subscription has lapsed. i.e your car was previous years model and its been sitting there 12 months then you have to buy it again.


          Could argue with the dealership and they might issue you with a Voucher Code

  • I have a 2016 Renault Megane with R-Link 2 with sw version Recently I updated my phone (Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S) with OTA update to Android Pie. And now the car’s Bluetooth loudspeaker does interesting things:
    – the icon of the phone on the screen stays red after connecting, but the BT loudspeaker fortunately works,
    – I cannot start a call from the car’s screen because it says “No signal strength”,
    -and the most annoying problem: after finishing the call, the number and name of the other party stucks on the cockpit screen, it doesn’t disappear.
    Before that I didn’t have these issues so I think there is some compatibility problem with the new Android version.
    Does somebody have the same problems?

    Have someone with tried this? I have Talisman from 2016 with 8.7″ screen (if that matters…) and very curious if someone got it working. In the forum, when I translated, I can see it was succesful but it’s an italian Kadjar forum…

  • Actually it works fine with Talisman! I can strongly recomend the upgrade! The display becomes much more responsive too 🙂

    • Hi Mario, what is your experience after two weeks of the upgrade? All good? No issue? I have Megane 2016.11 with r-link 2 with and would like to have phone mirroring feature.

      Hello enrico,
      how did you upgrade to in 2015 Espace, or was it in the car originally?

  • Ok. Information to all that have soft 2.2 on their r-link 2. It is possible to upgrade your system to branch 3.3 with Android auto (car play still doesn’t work). I did that last evening. It’s very easy. Here you have a description of the method. It’s in Spanish but google translate does the job. I done it on Megane but as I understand it should be good for all cars with r-link 2. Enjoy 🙂 I am from Warsaw Poland if any you needed help.


    EDIT Admin: I do not recommend this method.

    Is there any update from 7.x to 8.x?

  • It seems R-Link Store service not available. Maybe new updates will come? 🙂

  • 2 Hours ago, by myRenaut was shown two Versions and for my Rlink2. After a phone with Service Hotline, they told that the latest version for my RL is 2.2 . My question was , why is both shown , wasn’t realy answered . Car was build in late 2017. My request was for carplay adaption. Answer was, isn’t possible because missing hardware? Now 2 hours later the Version 3. , as possible version, wasn’t shown via MyRenault.
    So my personal opinion is, maybee that new hardware was delivered and build in, but via car configuration 2.2 Software Version was implemented and the function are killed.
    Did somebody know which hardware version / starting by serialnumber or versionnumber ist needed for carplay/mirror adaption?

    • disappeared from toolbox and not available to download. I presume this was just some bug in the vehicle categorization. We still have to wait and hope 🙂

  • Hi,

    I’ve got 2016 Talisman with R-Link When I follow instructions and enter my VIN number the official website says that there are no updates. I installed the R- Link 2 Toolbox and it gave me a list of things that needed updating – which I did in hope that the system would be one of the things that will get the update. Unfortunately, my R Link remains after installing all recommended apps and pieces of software (push services, profiles etc). I’ve run out of ideas.

    I have a Talisman 2016. Due to some problems with the radio the Renault service has replaced the complete R-Link 2 Radio. Now when I check the SW version I see is isntalled. From what I’ve read this version has Full screen for Android Auto and Carplay but I can’t find the option on the screen. Does anyone know why? Do I need to do something special? Only thing that works is Syri. When I go to seetings on the screen I can’t see the “smartphone mirrorring” button. How do I fix this? Is there a way to show it?

    • I’ve now the same version on my Koleos, I just connect the phone to the USB for smart mirroring and the same works in full screen without any change. Are you connecting with bluetooth ? are you sure carplay is enabled on your phone and the phone is unlocked?

  • Megane 4 production Jan 2017. I had 7.0. Yesterday I was able to upgrade 7.0.16 to 9.0.34. There was a short “Check Engine” warning during the update, but it disappeared after I restarted the car. All functions seems to be working fine, much smoother than 7.0. Android Auto is working as well (I had to enable it through DDT4ALL).

    A warning for those who will enable Android Auto through DDT4ALL. There are several versions of the configuration pages. Most won’t work for your car. If you open a configuration page and see “NO DATA” on the right side, DO NOT CHANGE VALUES. If you click on the Read All and no data appears, DO NOT PROCEED. You will break something. Try other versions of the “RadNav” configuration pages.

    • What version of the loader do you have?

      Hello Ivan,

      How did you manage to update from 7.xxx to 9.xxx? I have and automatic update is not offering this option. Beside this, when I bought my Megane 4 in 2019, the deal was that for 3 years Renault will provide 2 map updates/year. It seems that this year there will be only one…
