It's certainly a fact that the Macan software wasn't designed for OTA updates (as opposed to mapping updates). Porsche are trying to do OTA updates on the Taycan, although feedback on owner forums suggests this is a ponderous and hit-and-miss process. VW generally has, as you know, had massive problems trying to make software which works, and owners of ID.3 etc are being told to go to their dealerships to get OTA updates installed (which suggests they're not actually OTA).
Just rumour then! :D

Rubbish! Didn't you note the comment "Data is fictitious and does not match the model shown"?

You may also have missed the fact that the descriptions relate to Macan EVs.

My car did what I assume was a map update during hour 1 of an 8 hour drive up through France. After the update had finished I noticed I had lost the ticking sound to indicators, stopped to check they where where working which they where. Next morning the PCM took a couple of minutes to fire up and the ticking sound returned…. So was this an over air update of more than just maps….

I’m with Andreas on this. AFAIK Porsche have never done any OTA changes to any Macan on anything except the mapping database.

Isn't it a shame there's nobody we can ask and get an authoritative answer. I wonder if enquiries during my factory tour in June might elicit any information? Unlikely!

With regard to LDW, if it has always been there, it would seem it is now not possible to switch it off, but at least the re-entered preferences have now been retained.
