LINCOLN ENHANCE SOFTWARE UPDATES

Effortless enhancements, over the air. Keep your Lincoln on the cutting edge with Lincoln Enhance, our routine software updates. Wirelessly receive updates for your vehicles features, capability and convenience, improving ownership experience and reducing the need for repair trips.

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.
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.
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.
4. MAKE THE MOST OF IT
View your newest update details on your in-vehicle screen. Keep checking back on owner.lincoln.com and the Lincoln Way™ App for future Over-the-Air Update alerts.

Over-the-Air Updates introduce new features and enhancements, ensuring you are always enjoying the best version of your vehicle.

Over-the-Air Updates occur on a rolling basis. By default, your vehicle will start the update process as soon as a new version becomes available. Keep an eye out for Over-the-Air Update icons on your in-vehicle display, since they will inform you about your update once clicked.

You can check your in-vehicle Update Details screen to learn about what’s included in your Over-the-Air Update.

Both in your vehicle and by logging in to your Lincoln Way™App or owner.lincoln.com account.

 

In your vehicle, go to the Settings menu and tap on System Updates to learn more.

 

In the app, you will get an alert on your Home screen where you can view the most recent successful Over-the-Air Update details.

We recommend setting a recurring schedule and connecting your vehicle to a frequently used and in-range private Wi-Fi network, where available, to get updates as soon as they are ready.

Some updates require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off for a short period of time. When you set a recurring schedule, you can ensure that these types of updates will occur when it's most convenient for you (i.e., overnight, during work, etc.). You’ll get an in-vehicle reminder before the update takes place.

You will get an in-vehicle reminder up to 24 hours before your scheduled installation time. You’ll have the ability to change your scheduled time up to two minutes before the update starts.

 

There could be a few reasons:

 

Your vehicle may not support Over-the-Air Updates. Refer to your owner’s manual to double-check.

If you have turned Automatic Updates OFF, you must have Notifications ON in order to get Over-the-Air Updates.

You may need to take action to progress the update. Look at your in-vehicle screen to see if you have an update pending.
