How to update:

While you are in the car:

First, you need to login in to your account by navigating through Settings, System and then System Update. You can also view the current version and update status of the system in this interface.

Also, enter the system update section and click “Settings” in the upper right corner and make sure the “Automatic Download” switch is turned on. Additionally,  you can check the download progress in the notification Center.

Once the download process is complete, you can click the upgrade icon on the screen and set up the update plan and select “Reservation Update” or “Update Now” as per your requirements.

When you are outside of the car:

On the flip side, you can also install the update remotely through smartphone. But, make sure that new version of the vehicle was downloaded.

Simply, open the AITO app, go to My tab and followed by My Vehicle. From here, tap on your vehicle option, click on vehicle software version and select update noew or schedule update.

Once the update is done, you can view the specific operation instructions of each function in “Services and Applications > Application Center > Owner’s Guide” on the central control screen of the car.

Note: The “System Update” function needs to be used under the owner’s account or an authorized account.


  • When upgrading, please park the vehicle on a gentle (non-up/downhill) road section, close all entertainment audio and video applications in the vehicle, and ensure that the vehicle network signal is good and the battery power is higher than 30%.
  • During the upgrade process, the vehicle may turn off the screen, turn on the running lights, and briefly prompt the instrument panel fault light, which are all normal phenomena. Please do not intervene or drive the vehicle; you can lock the car and leave normally, and the vehicle will automatically Power off after the upgrade is complete.
  • After the upgrade is completed, if the instrument panel prompts that the cruising range or tire pressure is abnormal, it will not affect the normal driving of the vehicle, and it can be restored after driving for a period of time (meaning that the vehicle needs to travel at a speed of more than 25 kilometers per hour for more than 3 minutes).
  • If you encounter any other problems during the upgrade process, please call the user care hotline 400-008-9999 for consultation.
