Important Note about Initial Installation
Please note that after you complete your initial Installation of your dash cams, they may require downtime for the first 24 hours for a firmware upgrade.
To ensure the camera and vehicle gateway are on the newest firmware available, there will be a temporary period of downtime during the installation while the camera upgrades. This will be a one-time occurrence, as all future over-the-air upgrades will happen while the vehicles are not in active use.
