Fisker Ocean owners are now getting over-the-air software updates for their electric SUV, and there are plenty more on the way.
Today, we are excited to report that Fisker Ocean owners are now receiving over-the-air (OTA) software updates. OTA software updates provide customers with new and updated features for their Fisker Ocean. Fisker began pushing out software updates to a test group of owners as early as the middle of last week. In fact, we received an over-the-air software update to our Fisker Ocean as part of this test group. Our Fisker Ocean now operates on version FM29 OS 1.09 and it’s been great!
Recently, Fisker began reaching out to its customers regarding upcoming software updates for the Fisker Ocean. According to their communication, customer vehicles will be getting a series of OTA software updates in batches. They mentioned that these updates will be ongoing as part of the Fisker ownership experience. These updates will be delivered wirelessly via the Fisker Ocean’s built-in cellular connection.
Once the update is ready, Fisker Ocean owners will receive a notification on their central touchscreen (as seen in the photo above). Once it pops up on the home screen, users can opt to either ‘install’ or ‘dismiss’ the software update. The notification will read: “A new update is available for your Fisker Ocean. During the update process your car will remain locked and you won’t be able to access or drive your car. Estimated installation time: 30min”.
Once the update wraps up, you’ll get a confirmation message saying: “Installation complete. Your Ocean has been updated to the latest version.” For future updates and release notes, head to the Software section in Settings on the central touchscreen. Keeping your Fisker Ocean up-to-date ensures optimal performance for your vehicle. We recommend installing the software update as soon as it becomes available.
FM29 OS 1.09 Release Notes (Current Update)
Here are the release notes for the latest version of software:
The latest OTA software update includes feature improvements, bug fixes, and performance enhancements to improve the functionality of your Fisker Ocean. • Shorter time for multiple OTA updates • California Mode consistent performance using the app • Enhanced accuracy of state of charge (SOC) calculations • Powertrain robustness improvements • Other bug fixes and performance enhancements
Future Software Updates
Fisker gave customers a sneak peek into upcoming OTA software updates for the Fisker Ocean. We can expect to experience some of these innovations in upcoming software updates sent wirelessly to our Fisker Oceans. These updates encompass enhancements to the central touchscreen software, introducing features like custom profiles, Bluetooth connectivity, real-time SolarSky energy graphics, trip consumption data, and more.
Additionally, improvements may extend to power consumption optimization, the introduction of one-pedal driving (yay!), and the implementation of a new ‘Power Saving Mode’ to boost battery efficiency and overall range. The commitment doesn’t stop there; Fisker plans to further refine the My Fisker app, introducing App as Key functionality and enhanced remote climate control features. Maybe we will even see some of these requested software features? Exciting times await Fisker owners on the horizon!
