Software System Update Macclesfield

Why does my car need updated software? 

Modern cars – especially Audi, Volkswagen, Seat and Škoda – are kitted out with top computers that control everything from complex engine management to simple sat-nav. And, like your phone or computer, it often needs updating to make it run as efficiently as possible. 

But, it goes even further. Where once a technician may have spent hours working on a problem, an update can now fix that in minutes. So, as you can see, updating your software will not only improve your driving experience but save you a lot of money.

Links Automotive are passionate about innovation. That’s why we’ve put such a large focus on having the right tools and knowledge to maximise the tech in your car. 

So, if you’re ready to upgrade your software, or want to know more about upgrading, get in touch today. Our friendly, jargon-free technicians are here to help you.

What happens if my car has a performance map? Will new software overwrite this?

We get asked this a lot because many garages will simply overwrite everything with a new update. And, that can have huge implications.

However, if you let us know in advance about your vehicle history and it’s mapping, we can easily update your software without affecting your performance mapping. No problem!

Just tell your technician when you book your car in.

Updating Software Can Fix Your Car

“On my new Audi, I noted the transmission to shift flawlessly, as you’d expect. But, it wasn’t the same when it downshifted from third to second gear. Here it felt like someone was banging the floor with a hammer. I took it to Links Automotive. They were able to update my software, and the problem very quickly corrected itself. Amazing.”

Updating Software Can Fix Your Car

“Recently, I had a nasty surprise with dead batteries. I took my car to Links Automotive, and they discovered why, before explaining it in a really simple way. Software controls when every electronic device in your vehicle turns off. However, because of some corrupt software, just like on a computer at home, certain processes had stopped working. After an update – it didn’t take them long – the software was corrected and they found an issue where a vehicle sub-system stayed on, even with the ignition switched off. Problem solved.”
