Firmware released for Carbotics (updated link 04.05.2023):

update.zip - this is for test units and units delivered before mid of March 2022: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UQblqnu66yZNiBaHClY4eNZWa04gfft9

APM888.zip - newer devices after 14. March 2022: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UQblqnu66yZNiBaHClY4eNZWa04gfft9

Note: The firmware uploaded is the latest released from Carbotics known to me and might not work on all units.

Some helpers can be found here: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=330831

Procedure to upgrade:

1. Download the correct firmware from the link above to your computer (you have to ask for getting access

Note (before somebody asks): Yes, if your CarBotics runs well and you are close to an open WLAN network you might download the file directly onto your CarBotics unit. But don't forget to move/copy this file to your SD card (see step 2) before you restart your CarBotics. Proceed with step 4

2. Copy the file update.zip or APM888.zip to the root of your SD card (the SD card should be formatted in FAT32)

3. Insert this card into CarBotics and connect CarBotics to your car.

4. Switch on Auxiliary or Ignition (power on). CarBotics will start, will see the update.zip or APM888.zip and will prompt you if it should install. Answer yes and the procedure will start.

Note: Be sure ignition (auxiliary power) isn't switched off during the installation. During update CarBotics will probably reboot several times, just be patient and let the updater do it's work. After approx. 10 to max. 15 minutes CarBotics will be ready and you can enjoy the updated system.

In any case, if you run into any trouble please let the forum know what you did (or did not do) and we will try to get your system up and running again.

Bye for now  Fred

@warrick Link updated in first post. You will need to ask for downloading (official link was dead, so I had to setup my private space)

Bye for now  Fred
