Around 10 days ago my '22 Macan S suddenly lost most of the personal settings (particularly those associated with induvidual keys), such as seat memory, comfort entry, mirror folding, door opening, diamond button program, etc.

At the same time, the car appears to have gained Lane Departure Warning, which I didn't spec and I certainly wasn't aware of it being present before now.

I can only think Porsche have done an over air update that has caused all this, but am wondering if anyone else has had similar experience?

Lane departure warning is standard on a 22 Macan πŸ˜‰

As Skyway has said, LDW is standard, at least it is on Gen 1 &2. Maybe like a lot of us you turned it off. It then stays off. Your PCM mid life crisis may well have turned it back on. I wonder if, for some reason or another, the PCM has rebooted and this is why everything has gone back to ex-factory settings.

Okay, didn't realise that, and must have been turned off from pickup.

The PCM hasn't cleared entirely as it retained my phone connection and favourite radio stations.

Will be out in it today so will see if it's kept the re-entered settings.

I think similar has happened to me once or twice but I've never been certain it wasn't me that caused it! Actually the LDW and Auto Stop activated last Monday but again can't be sure it wasn't me, though not a deliberate act. Low level seems to disappear every couple of months and doesn't seem to be included in the memory settings.

Porsche isn't advanced enough to do OTA updates.

Andreas, is that an opinion or a certifiable fact? Obviously they do Nav updates, can we be certain absolutely NOTHING else ever gets tweaked? Some systems will have parameters that would be straight forward data updates.

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
