Composition/Discover Firmware Revisions

In my previous car, I had an RNS-510 unit. There are fairly frequent firmware updates released for these - some of which actually add useful functionality (e.g. we saw full digit postcode entry and GPS co-ordinate entry as updates). However, VW dealers are notoriously bad at letting customers know there's an update available or offering to perform the update.

So, I thought it would be interesting to see if any updates to the new units have been released since launch and into the future if members post their hardware/software/nav versions in this thread.

My car was built in April (Discover Media) and was delivered with Hardware v039, Software v0170 and Navigation 5G0919866. You can check this info from the 'System Information' screen.

Anyone seen any updates or older revisions?

Mine was also an April build, but looks like yours is more up to date.

Where to download a newer Software for Composition Media unit?
I have Hardware: 040 and Software: 0421 and Media codec: N/A

And what is that Media codec and is it possible to install it additionally?

How is it you work out the date it was built?
I used the on-line tracker,on a daily basis, since the car was ordered.

this is from the Composition Media system included in my 2015 Golf GTI Autobahn that I just took delivery of in Canada. Its part of the Fender audio upgrade. the manufacture date is Aug 2014.
Can anyone confirm this is the most current hardware and software? The owners manual states the supported formats for the sd card includes vFAT and NTFS, both of which are not correct. The SD card was only readable when formatted with FAT32.

Does anyone have any idea of where I can update mine? Ice heard that the latest software allows you to gave the app connect for the ones that don't have em. My VW dealer says it can't be done, I know it can all I need is the link to download the newest software. Please let me now if anyone has it.

Thanks!!
