Perform Firmware Updates
Husqvarna sometimes releases new firmware updates for your robotic lawn mower. These updates can provide solutions for performance or security issues that may occur or they can add a new function. Firmware data is stored inside your robotic lawn mower, providing it with instructions that allow it to perform its’ basic tasks and functions.
Some models allow you to easily update the firmware yourself, using the FOTA (firmware over the air) technology. However, not all models are equipped with this feature. If you have a model that doesn’t support FOTA, you need to bring your mower to your local dealer so they can update the firmware.
If you choose not to update your firmware, your mower will continue working effectively, however, it will not give you access to any new enhancements. If the update is a security feature, updates are mandatory and will be installed automatically if you have a model with FOTA technology.
When purchasing your robotic lawn mower, ask if the team has any additional service packages that include updating your firmware for you.
