Step 1: Connect to Wi-Fi

Once you connect to your preferred private network, your vehicle will automatically reconnect whenever it’s in range. Some updates might only be able to download to your vehicle via Wi-Fi, so for a seamless experience, keep Wi-Fi on and connected wherever available.

Step 2: Set A Recurring Schedule

While some updates complete seamlessly in the background, other updates will require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off for a short period of time. Setting a schedule (we suggest overnight or during work hours) helps ensure you won’t need your vehicle during these types of updates. And don’t worry about forgetting – you'll be reminded of your schedule each time these updates are ready for installation, and you can adjust as needed.
