Managing system updates via the Download Centre

System updates are intended for the online and infotainment components in the car. If system software updates are available, the updates can be made all at once or one at a time.

Searching for update

P5-1617-Icon-App screen-OTA

For system updates to be possible, the car must be connected to the Internet1.

System updates are handled via the Download Centre app in the centre display's application view. If no search for available updates has been performed since the last time the infotainment system was started, a search is performed. No search is performed if a software installation is in progress. A number on the System updates button shows how many updates are available. A tap on the button shows a list of the updates that can be installed in the car. If an update is available, the New software updates available message is also shown in the centre display's status bar.


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.


An update can be interrupted when the ignition is switched off and the car is left.

However, the update does not have to be completed before the car is left, this is because the update is resumed the next time the car is used.

Update all system software

Select Install all at the bottom of the list.

If no list is desired, then the Install all option can be selected at the System updates button instead.

Update individual system software programs

Cancelling software download

Tap on X in the activity indicator that has replaced the button Install at the start of the download.

Note that only the download can be cancelled, when the installation phase has started, this cannot be cancelled.

Automatic background search for software updates is activated when the car is delivered from the factory, but this function can be deactivated.
