Set or Change Update Schedule

Some updates will require your vehicle to be turned off for a short period of time during installation. In order to ensure you won’t need your vehicle, we recommend scheduling updates for the best day(s) and time that work for you. Don’t worry about forgetting — you'll be notified prior to your scheduled time if an update is ready to install. You can also change your schedule at any time up until two minutes before the install starts. Once the install starts, your vehicle cannot be driven for up to 45 minutes. If certain preconditions aren’t met, such as the vehicle being turned off, the install process will not initiate and will retry at your next scheduled day and time.
