What Is Firmware Version Data?

The firmware version is important to understand. With tweaks and updates happening all the time. Not having the latest firmware may affect the safety, function and reliability of the program you are using to connect to live vehicle data.

Firmware data simply inform users what version of the firmware they are using. With press releases announcing new versions, it’s important to understand which firmware version is being used currently.
