We want to help you reach your peak of fun – this starts with figuring out touchscreen updates. The Can-Am Off-Road 10.25” touchscreen display offers an ever-growing array of capabilities that elevate your off-road adventures – especially when combined with the BRP GO! app. Did you know its features are also designed to make your riding experience easier than ever? One of the ways it does this is letting you update the software in the display anywhere you’ve got an internet connection. Let’s look at how these over-the-air (OTA) updates work.
Why should you update the 10.25” Touchscreen Display?
The 10.25” display has Wi-Fi connectivity to connect to your home network or any other wireless internet connection, and update the software running your Can-Am screen.
Just like for your mobile devices, you can update the advanced technology in your display to add new features, interface improvements, security updates and more. With the built-in Wi-Fi capability, you can update your Maverick R display to the latest version from the comfort of your home without going to the dealership.
How do I update my Can-Am 10.25” Display? Follow these simple steps to update your display in minutes.
Important information before updating the software of the display :
- Your vehicle's engine can be turned off, but the display still needs to be on.
- Never perform updates while driving the vehicle.
- Make sure your vehicle has sufficient battery charge. We recommend installing a charger on your vehicle during the process to ensure the battery has enough charge.
STEP 1: Connect your display to a Wi-Fi network
a) On the main Applet menu, select “Preferences,” and then “Wi-Fi” from the list on the left.
b) Then select “Add New Network,” find the network you’d like to connect to from the list that appears on screen, and enter the password.
*If no Wi-Fi network is available near the vehicle, you can share your smartphone cellular network by hotspot (here's how to do it for Apple and Android devices). Just note cellular data fees may apply.
*The 10,25'' touchscreen display will only connect to a secured network.
STEP 2: Download and install the new software version
c) Once connected to Wi-Fi, select “General” from the list on the left.
d) Select "Software Update", then the available update (if any).
*Please note that the system will automatically check if a new update is available when the display is connected to an Internet network and the "General" section is open.
e) Press “Download Update” and the process will begin.
f) Once the download is completed, press "Install Update".
*The download and install process should take about 10-20 minutes (depending on the strength of your Internet network).
Once the software update process is completed, your Maverick R display will reboot, and you’ll be equipped with all the latest capabilities for your next off-road adventures. It’s time to start riding again!
