Functions when the car is online

Downloading, updating and uninstalling apps

Updated 7/23/2018

When the car is online there is the option to download new apps, keep existing apps updated or uninstall apps.

Note

Data download may affect other services that transmit data, e.g. Internet radio. If the effect on other services is experienced as disruptive then the download can be interrupted. Alternatively, it may be appropriate to switch off or interrupt other services.
