Feature seems to be suspicious, and even useless – and the price will rise.
Technology FOTA, which literally translates as “firmware over the air” already for some time used in their cars for various automakers from Tesla to BMW, Opel, Audi and others. And now Renault Arkana will be updated “over the air”: this feature will allow owners of “Arcana” to add ON via the mobile network without having to visit the dealership, as it does on smartphones and tablets.
Updated Renault Arkana will automatically. The car owner will need to approve the process by running it through a menu, and the updates will be downloaded in the background during the drive, and then start the installation process. It is necessary to clarify that the new feature applies only to upgrade the multimedia system to “Arcana”.
But Russians wary the news about the introduction of such technology in the Renault Arkana: they say that you can over the air update, you can likewise through the air and crack. “I am opposed to someone remotely in my car,” “With the stick once more reliable”, – objection on the network.
Other users note that this function is familiar to all motorists who is the head unit installed in the car, “Chinese multimedia” with support for Android, which is already available for remote update via the smartphone. The fact that Renault Arkana will be similar to a function straight from the factory – a very dubious achievement.
It is believed that the introduction of FOTA Renault Arkana seems to be important update, and the “blurring” of the eye, because the cross-coupe is already sadly famous a number of shortcomings, which are written by the owners. Mostly complain about the range of engines and transmissions: a 1.6-liter engine with 114 HP is rather weak, though there is the “mechanics”, and a 150-HP turbo engine “Arcana” is only available paired with a CVT. “It would be better variator from stocks on regular basis”, – with sarcasm written.
The cost of Renault Arkana is also criticized by the majority of Russians: “to Raise wages even in the air and jobs to have enough for the harness,” “Better air to fill you”. On the whole, the cross-coupe drivers think a strategic miscalculation, “Reno”, but for success you had so little: just a normal engine and the “machine” – this is enough to attract fans of the “Crete”.
