Default Software Version

Does anyone know if there is a way to tell what version of software the car is currently running? I am pretty happy with the version I have except...

The A/C fan speed occasionally needs to be manually changed and the navigation voice needs to be adjusted down from the radio volume.

Also, if I have an old version, is anyone selling a self-upgrade program?

I probably should leave well enough alone, but I am curious.

I don't think you'd even be able to get ahold of a version that you could self-upgrade, but even if you could, I'd avoid that at all costs. I'm sure Harleyguy or Lormax would be happy to help you with that. If it came down to it, you'd be wise to fly one of them to you so they could do the job for you.

Hey there Steven. You can check the software versions of the CIU, which will give you an educated guess of what the other software levels are at. To do this, start the car normally and bring it to System Ready. Hit the Agree button on the screen and let the touch screen boot up. Then, press and hold the diag System button for 8 seconds, then let go. The screen may change while holding it, which is fine, just count to 8 slowly (one-one thousand, two one thousand, etc). After the 8 seconds, let go and a new screen should come up. Either post a picture of it or tell us what your VIP and HOST versions are. That'll give us a general idea of what software level your car is probably at. Hope that helps!

Here are my numbers:

Hardware: PV
Software: 05.02.16.00
VIP: 05.23.00
NAV: 01.05.01
Host: 05.23.00

I am guessing I am at least one update behind Steven. Is it possible to post a list of these numbers corresponding to their Version and what that version does, because it may be that I do not want to upgrade, especially if it is going to cost me and I do not care for the features that it fixes, unless that would be an argument for warranty violation, but if they are going to pull that card, they are going to have to do it for free, or a definite lawsuit will be on their hands.
This is just one of the many reasons Fisker Automotive failed, by never creating the Owner website they promised that could have been a database for vehicle histories, so an owner would know where they stood for their next service visit.

Yes you are one software version behind I assume you didn't visit you dealership in the past 6 or 7 months . You can leave the car at 628 your choice of coarse but like any software it fixes bugs in the car . I don't have the full list of module it upgrades in front of me but I' m a search of the forum will get you an answer . Just wondering did you have the cooling fan recall done ?

Yes, I took it in for that when I got my 10k service done. At least it was supposed to. Of course, I have no owner's website unlike MySubaru.com which shows my Subaru's maintenance history to include services and recalls applied and outstanding. It is amazing how poorly mismanaged Fisker Automotive was, in that they could not provide was is considered by many as basic services that an owner expects.

You can't really blame Fisker for your car not being on the correct software version .Fisker releases the software it's the dealerships obligation to make sure your car is up to date . I ca think of one problem that you may want to check into .There is two parts to software installs one part installs software to all the modules like ECM/HCU etc the second part is the CIU when software is done we install a thumb drive into the usb port in the center console if the CIU has a bad boot loader it won't see the thumb drive this will prevent to software from being loaded . Only way to check this you would need the 510 software on a thumb drive and install the drive and see if the TPI switches screens to the USB screen . I've had this happen many times and had to replace the CIU .
