As we continue to expand on the GT's capabilities we will be able to push firmware updates remotely via the Onewheel App! Firmware updates via the app generally contain additional features and tweaks to current one to maximize the ability of your board.
If you are interested in learning what is in the latest GT firmware update, check out our video here.
To make updating as easy as possible, once you connect to a board that does not have the latest firmware, you should receive a pop-up letting you know an update is available and letting you update the board as well as instructions on how to do so. If you dismiss the notification and put off updating the firmware on your board for too long, you may miss the opportunity this go around you may need to wait until the next firmware update is available.
When updating your board it is crucial that you leave the device that is performing the update WITH the board and do not minimize the app. Doing so could interfere with the update causing you to start over. Or worse, corrupt your firmware. In order to make sure your board does not shut off during the update it is also important that if your board's charge is over 50%. You do not connect it to the charger, or if it is under 50% you can connect the board and leave it on the charger. Please note that it is normal for your Lightbar to flash during the update process. Once complete you will see the screen on your phone update and your board will restart.
