Received the email on Oct 22. It's now the 31st and I've driven over 300 miles in 40-50 mile chunks over the past few days, yet no notification of an update has arrived. 'Check for Update' still says I'm up to date.

FWIW, I was one of the few that received the June update as an OTA, which appeared to install successfully.

I was also referred to my dealership for this issue. There's zero chance I'm paying them to fix it, it's an advertised feature of the vehicle not working (not to mention the manufacturer themselves telling me to take it in).

Unfortunately both nearby dealers are booked out 3-4 weeks.

I was out for a drive this evening and at a stoplight I went into Settings and checked to see if I was to be blessed with 1.7, but no.

Then the software engineer in me had an idea. I turned off 'Automatically Download Updates' pressed the Home button, then went back into Settings and turned 'Automatically Download Updates' back on. 20 minutes after I returned home the VC app notified me that an update was available. I returned to the car, and it's was prompting me to start the update.

Coincidence? Probably, but it might be worth a try!

FWIW, update seems to have completed successfully.

Makes sense. Turning off and on fixes many things in the software universe :)

When the car fails to synch for music with my phone I turn bt on and off and it always fixes it :)

After waiting since late October the update appeared out of the blue yesterday and installed without any issues in around 30-45 minutes. I had a service appointment scheduled for this coming Tuesday, but it seems like it does eventually - with no rhyme or reason - get rolled out to us all. I kinda felt like I was the last one to get it, but hang in there.

It would be funny if OTA actually spread like a virus. To catch it you need to be close to a P8 with it long enough to down load it. It is 100% not using that model which I just pulled out of my sense of humor and yet the way it actually works seems odd.
