The option to connect on the 'K', what purpose does it serve?

Is this the R4.0 or the Navi 900.

Have not seen this feature outside of the secret menu on the R4.0

R4.0, if you press the home button and go into settings its in there under wifi

My car is a 2018, not sure this would make a difference.

My R4.0 with the latest software installed has the following menu items

Time and date
Language
Radio
Vehicle
Bluetooth
Apple Carplay
Android Auto
USB Autolaunch
Turn Display off
Return to factory settings
Software information

I never had any wifi menu outside of the secret menu when my radio had 2015 software and it is not there on the December 2017 software either.

My guess is that you have a 2016 software and it was present there.

As far as i have been told, at one point Vauxhall were about to make the car able to do firmware upgrading "Over The Air" like your phone, television and so on.

They never fully implemented it and because of that, they removed it in the final software version from December 2017 as to not confuse people.

Really sad that they bought a HMI module that had full support for wifi, but never really enabled it.

From 2020 models, the HMI module has been upgraded to a Peugeot unit, so it is highly unlikely that they will ever release any more updates for our "old" R4.0 or the Navi 900.

I have tried succesfully connecting to my house wifi from the secret menu on the 2015 firmware and it does actually work, but it does nothing really.

Also when they updated my radio they fcuked up and had to give me the car with the screen upside down. They had loaded 2016 software onto it and was unable to do the variant coding, so for one weekend i had it running upside down, but with "Chevrolet Mycar" branding and this had full wifi capabilities. Tried connecting to my wifi and did a "Check for update" that was in the menu, but even though it was connected and obviously not on the latest firmware, it happily told me "Your firmware is up to date". So that mechanism did not work properly for the Chevrolet cars either.

I suggest that you might not have the latest firmware version, or maybe that menu item is something they variant coded to disappear when they decided to not do OTA updates.

The picture is from my car with the latest firmware.

If you go to the secret menu, you can see what version you have.
