Android Auto cames with 3.3.16.x.... before that you have to enable it manually (means even if you did unofficial upgrade of FW AA and CP remains disabled and you have to enable it). On V1 devices you have to change USB panel as well to have functional CP.

can you post a link to this discussion? From what I can tell the v8 upgrade only works if you have v7 installed first. some folk have also been having issues with climate control after upgrade

frpm greek renault club updating rlink

"Good news, lads! I have finally and luckily found a guy who actually was able to help me with upgrade of R-Link 2 to version 8 (even if my dealer was saying this is the most actual one in my car), which among other things resolves:


- CarPlay full-screen
- sharper graphics
- faster response



If you are interested in updating, here is how to do it:

1. Download v8 firmware from here: https://mega.nz/?fbclid=IwAR2XxAcRBlXOwT2fOTnxdrEpn9mTVOABO16vr1xSgTp8EflE6ZQHlfLoL5M#!V64ERIaD!OZttk63QBzh0jPlb6xI9umG_c2DJ8PfPCaFZ5gyBFdk

2. Take at least 16 GB USB drive. Make sure that it is empty and formatted with FAT32 file system.

3. Go to car, start the engine, plug the USB and wait 2-3 minutes.

4. Turn off the engine, remove USB, go to your PC.

5. Plugin USB to your PC, you will see there 2 folders.

6. Extract (with WinZip or WinRAR) firmware you have downloaded from the link above.

7. Copy extracted files onto USB inside the folder named R-Link.

8. Remove the USB, go back to your car.

9. Start the engine, plugin the USB and let the R-Link recognize update for FW. Do not turn off the engine and make sure that car is running all the time.

10. When asked to update, select yes and let it do its thing. It may take up to 20 minutes (in my case it was about 5). Do not panic when everything goes black. This is fine and normal behavior.

11. Once everything is completed, R-Link will start on its own and everything will go back to normal.

12. After moment, you will be informed that update went fine and if you wish to remove FW file from USB. This means that your work is done and you are running v8 on your R-Link.

13. Remove the USB file and enjoy."
