Getting Updates

Updating is easy

Take the following steps next time you’re in your vehicle, and you’ll always be ready for over-the-air updates.

Getting updates — Step 1

Turn On Automatic Updates

This ensures your updates will be downloaded as soon as they’re available. Some updates require your vehicle to be in park and off, so you’ll want to set a schedule, too.

Getting updates — Step 2

Schedule Update Time

For those updates that require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off, setting a schedule — for overnight or whenever it's convenient for you — helps ensure you’re getting the latest updates without disrupting your day.

Getting updates — Step 3

Enjoy The Enhanced Experience

When your update is complete, you can view details or simply begin using your updated vehicle right away.
