Improved the reliability of the key fob software update. If the key fob update previously failed, you can try the update again without contacting Rivian Service; go to Settings > Vehicle > Updates.
New Proximity Locking and Unlocking via Key Fob
Proximity locking and unlocking are now available via your key fob. To turn on his feature, go to Settings > Vehicle > Access. Also, if the battery level of the key fob is low, a notification appears on the driver display, and you can see a low battery indicator when you go to Settings > Drivers and Keys.
We’ve also improved the proximity locking experience for both phones and key fobs: locking is more consistent, and we’ve decreased the number of unintended locking occurrences.
We’ve introduced the following new features in navigation:
- Place search is now powered by Google Maps™
- You can now easily switch between charger status pins on the map to preview information. Choose a charger. Then choose Start to begin a new route to that charger.
- We’ve enhanced the detection of your vehicle’s arrival at its destination. The Navigation app now ends your trip when you park your vehicle near the destination.
Enhanced Front Camera View
We’ve improved the front camera view on the center display:
- Increased the horizontal and vertical fields of view for the front camera to provide a better perspective of the bumper relative to any obstacles.
- Improved the image quality of the front camera and increased the number of usable pixels by 50%.
- Driver+ Improvements
- Increased the Highway Assist hands-off warning time period from 10 to 20 seconds for your convenience.
- Your vehicle now notifies you that the rear Park Assist warnings aren’t available while the Rear accessory setting is enabled.
