    I've had the 'Travel Assist currently unavailable' issue start on mine recently. Seemed to get noticeably worse during the cold snap but has continued to deteriorate since the weather has warmed up. Generally it was at least settling down a minute or two after starts but has got really bad recently (was going off every couple of seconds the other day whilst behind a lorry). When I return home I generally do a 3 point turn just up the road before driving back to park and it always seems to start pinging away during that manoeuvre too.

    Car booked in for Thursday next week, I just hope they don't muck around too much resolving it. The relationship with my dealership isn't exactly on the best of terms anyway (delivery of the current car was an epic catalogue of ****-ups and I still have an ombudsman complaint against them pending from when I bought it).

    Has just the software updates fixed this for many people or has having to swap out the steering wheel been a common thing?

    Wouldn't be so bad if there was some pattern to it. Took a trip Monday to pick up shopping, went off 25 times in the space of a short 5 minute trip of no more than a couple of miles. Went off only twice on the return trip and a further quick trip to drop off stuff at the mother-in-laws a few miles away. Then done about 20 mile round trip this afternoon and its back to pinging away like mad.

    @bfr Those were the symptoms on ours. Travel Assist / Emergency Assist unavailable and frequent dinging. Often happened at a junction or roundabout and worse in damp weather. Became unbearable.

    Went to the dealer and first they upgraded the software to 1668, then tested and found it had not cured the problem. So they replaced the steering wheel and loom. Cured it completely.

    Cheers. I think mines pretty much always been just the Travel Assist message. Anyway, it's been dropped off at the dealers now so will hopefully know more tomorrow. Software is currently on 1664 so clearly that's one thing that'll be done.

    Will do. They rang me first thing to say they have to budget for the recall related update taking at least 8 hours to apply and verify so I won't be getting my car back until Friday now.

    Got the car back now. Handover was basically being given the keys back through a window and no paperwork was left in the car so not sure if anything else was done besides the software update (now shows 1688 installed, all other version numbers in the system info list unchanged). So far so good with zero unwanted dings on the drive home.

    Never used to be so often, however, I keep on getting travel assist unavailable. Super annoying as it still works! Get at least a beep every min!

    Sounds exactly like what happened to me. It was the occasional exception (usually just after starting or under mitigating circumstances like it absolutely pelting it down) and then it suddenly started spamming me with notifications every other journey. I'd try and get it booked in if I was you as it definitely doesn't go away on its own!
