I had a similar issue. Updated to V 0.2.2 then road trip and left the car sit for 2.5 days, return to nearly dead battery. It had other issues with that revision that were mostly resolved when I later disconnected and reconnected battery, like yours did with a very dead battery.

The Auto Polar folks say "We uploaded a wrong v022 that perhaps caused this battery drain, but yesterday we fixed in the v023"

They recommend updating to the newest version.

So you're saying we paid $300 for what seems to be a completely untested device that was the cause of me being 6 hours away from home with a 100% dead battery. Wow.

No, I didn't say that..
They did say "perhaps"

In any case they've been responsive, honest, and hardworking throughout this process.
I too wish it had just worked from day one. It didn't, so now I'm glad they are seeing it through.

I'm a nerd engineer/programmer. "Perhaps" and "maybe" are used all-too-often to skirt around owning up to a mistake. A way-younger me said those all the time.

That said, programming I wrote can still be "wrong" if it's 99.99% correct. It still may not actually "work". So I get it. However, what percentage of completion was this MQB PolarFIS released at? What percentage is it now many, many months later? It still cannot tell me the main reason for me purchasing it... EGT, DPF temps, IAT, etc., etc.

All of the programming I've done cannot be tested prior to installation as it was completely custom and for huge equipment. There are bazillions of North American MQB TDI cars to complete testing on. FWIW, IMHO, this should not have been released to the paying public until it was actually ready (say >95% correct).

Using the paying, unsuspecting, and uninformed public to do your R&D, to be your quality control, and expect them to spend their time to write 100's of feedback emails, etc. is not proper business ethics to me. Again FWIW, IMHO, YMMV, etc., etc.

I too am happy they made this product. I just wish it was released with at least the same quality as my mk6 JSW PolarFIS out of the box (and after a quick update prior to installation in the hard to get to under dash space).

They have to stick with it because they already sold bunches of these. But what is "sticking with it"? How many hours a week is PolarFIS spending to rectify this situation?

How many months have already passed? (I purchased 4 months ago)

How many updates with 0.01% improvements have been released? (and we run to do them as we incorrectly assume it is going to be a greater than 0.01% improvement)

How many more months do we have to wait until we can write/read posts that say "it now works as I expected when I purchased"?

"We are excited to announce that PolarFIS is ready for MQB platform! Fully customizable gauges and up to 10 Screens over 40 Parameters! This is the cleanest gauge system on the planet for your Mk7 MQB "

I guess were now gonna debate the word "ready" and it's been going on since March 18, and that was after Polar said it was soon to be released way back in sometime in 2016.

Laugh out loud to this entire situation. I purchased Polar the first day Kerma released it and it was about june/july before I could even get it to work. I had the similar electrical problems and my car battery probably would have died if I didnt drive it everyday. When I had my ticket with Autopolar I was told those problems happened because my ECU was not supported. Mine worked the next update so maybe that is what is causing some people so many issues?

My car sat for 4.5 straight days and outside and it's way colder now...
I checked the SOC% (battery state of charge) on the dash prior to starting it. It said 100%. So it's not my battery.
My guess it was the PolarFIS that killed it as Polar stated in Grigg3's comment above.

Went to try to update today with updater v1.8.1 and I cannot update. Updater shows connected and pulls the info from the device, then shows me a message that says, "Error (data-post)", then "Error connecting to server [42]".

I currently have version 0.2.1 installed and it seems to be working ok-ish for what information that particular version can tell me (which is still not the reason I bought the device for :-)

I updated mine a few weeks ago, it's working OK but I haven't tested all the parameters like I did before.
Haven't tried for a new update.

Have you asked them about your troubles?

Have you tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and then try again, this has resolved weird issues before.

Yes, i disconnected and reconnected the battery just prior to trying to connect. Then I disconnected the battery again, left it disconnected, and tried to connect to PolarFIS. Got same error message.



What version are you running now?

I was running 0.2.3, never tried 0.2.4.

They sent me a note last week that I should update to the latest 0.2.5b which is a large update with several parts rewritten altogether.

So far so good, several things have been fixed but I haven't checked it out thoroughly.

Updating seems to be much easier now.

Updated to 0.2.5b1

Seems to work fine. Not too many new parameters, but there are a few. One major one for me is finally seeing EGT. This may have come in earlier revisions, but as I couldn't update for a while there, I jumped from 0.2.1 to 0.2.5b1.

I'd like to know if the battery draining issue is resolved with the latest update. I'm ready to ask Santa for one of these. TIA.
