    DISCUSSION:

    All MY13-16 vehicles sold in the U.S. with the RA3 or RA4 radio can now receive software
    updates “over-the-air”. Updates to software level 17.11.07 will occur in a phased roll-out.
    The software is updated through the built-in cellular modem in the radio which is
    connected to the Sprint® 3G network. Customers will see a notification on their radio
    screen when new software is available for their radio (Fig. 1). The owner will have the
    option to update the radio or schedule the update for later. There is not an option to
    decline the update indefinitely. The update must be performed.
    NOTE: This is an information only TSB to help the customers understand how they
    can perform their FOTA update. This document does not contain a LOP for
    reimbursement.

    I hope they will release it on their website.

    I have a canadian truck with a U.S. radio, so there is no way it will download it on the sprint network since we don't have this network here and also don't have the network air card in my truck

    So, this pushes to all radios? Even retrofitted trucks?

    Hmm , I'd say you could update an upgraded radio via the USB , but not over the air , not positive ?

    If over the air was possible I believe you'd need to install the shark fin antenna & coax kit ...again not sure about that ?

    Subscribed for the info.
