Hi All- just took delivery of a 2019 RR SC. I have the following showing on my incontrol.
It’s showing the OTA button in the upper left but then I see the version is 18D. I joined the RR to my homes wifi and hit the update button. No update available.
Any guidance? Thanks

Forgive my ignorance...what is SOTA and how does the dealership turn it on?
Software Over The Air (I assume) since I've mostly use the term OTA Update (Over The Air).
You'll need to get to v19A to have the option of doing updates over WiFi or cellular data. Once you get this version and turn it on. Future updates will no longer require a dealership visit. Download the software @ home and update @ your own leisure.

19A is the version you need to have not 19A2, 19A enables you to receive OTA 19A2 is the first update that will ONLY be available via OTA but you will need to have your service center activate your vin.

Anyone else getting lots of hesitation from their dealer about updating the infotainment system to the latest 19A? I held off on 18D but now with 19A and OTA (19A2) I feel it’s worth doing.
I have a 2019 running 18C and have the occasional glitches that 19A should fix.
I’ve been a long time LR customer and know the brand quite well and see any progression in technology as a positive thing - even if it’s riddled with bugs.
Just odd that the dealer is skeptical that updates are worth it... guess they have lots of bad luck?
I’m at the dealer right now and they finally are doing the update... fingers crossed it takes without crashing...
19A has been WAY better for me then 18D ever dreamed about.

Good to hear - the dealer told me the update took after the second attempt. But after the update it said forward alert error... now they are trying to figure out how to fix that issue...
Sounds like the update process is finicky... growing pains...
Vehicle is still at the dealer, given the forward alert error, they decided to update the ICM (integrated control module) to see if that fixes things. Not sure how OTA updates will work given how fragile the car infrastructure seems to be. Perhaps the new base 19A fixes those core issues (I was on 18C before) and from 19A forward these other issues won't occur with a simple ICTP update.
these (S)OTA updates don't mess with the car infrastructure, only with things like navigation and entertainment.

Came to pickup... they updated... but it now seems the ambient lighting says “off” with no controls to turn it back on. They are going to look at that...
So I take it the OTA updates will be minor things and the major versions will still require the dealer.
All is good — have 19A. Can already tell it’s better. Took a bit to get it... but worth the effort. Onwards and upwards!
