OVER-THE-AIR UPDATES

Experience effortless ownership

As we continue to revolutionize your driving experience, we're applying the latest technology to help keep your Lincoln on the cutting edge and to make updating your vehicle as seamless as possible. In 2021, Lincoln will begin offering advanced Over-the-Air Update capability for quick and easy wireless upgrades that enhance features, quality, experiences, capability and convenience.1 These updates can help improve the ownership experience and may help reduce the need for repair trips.

Get started with the steps below.

Step 1

Connect to Wi-Fi

Once you connect to your preferred private network, your vehicle will automatically reconnect whenever it’s in range. Some updates might only be able to download to your vehicle via Wi-Fi, so for the most seamless experience, keep Wi-Fi on and connected wherever available.1

Step 2

SET A RECURRING SCHEDULE

While some updates complete seamlessly in the background, other updates will require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off for a period of time. Setting a schedule (we suggest overnight or during work hours) ensures you won’t need your vehicle during these types of updates. And don’t worry about forgetting — you’ll be reminded of your schedule each time these updates are ready for installation, and you can adjust as needed.

Step 3

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL

With Wi-Fi connected and a recurring schedule set, very little will be required of you. Simply keep an eye out for any Over-the-Air Update icons that might appear on your in-vehicle screen.
