How do I know when firmware updates are available without connecting my unit to the updater?

0 votes

Is there a way to know when new firmware releases are available? I now, at the moment, that the engine, temp., and door lock statuses (for example) are not enabled on the Evo-One & Smartstart. I was told that it would likely be a software update that would enable this feature in the future. Is a software fix in the plans and how will I know when/if it becomes available? Thanks.

firmware updates are listed here : http://fortin.ca/en/products/evo-series/evo-one/firmware.html

Firmwares for the bypass side would be listed in the Hardware 2 section. Since you have a Kia, you'd have too look at the 76.XX firmwares.

 Firmwares for your EVO-ONE, would be under hardware 3.
An update for the statuses with SmartStart, when available, would most likely be under the Hardware 3+ updates isnce it's more remote starter related than it is bypass related. But.... there may be an update required also in the bypass firmware.
