The v3 modules can be updated over the air (wifi), via SD CARD, or over USB - all without requiring special hardware programmers like the PICKIT used for v2. The simplest way to update the module firmware is to connect it as a client to your wifi network (or phone hotspot), and then use the web interface Config / Firmware / Flash-from-Web; that will show you the version you are running, as well as the latest version available for update. One click on 'Flash now' and the update will be downloaded and installed. Alternatively, you can download the firmware update to a file named ovms3.bin in the root directory of a FAT formatted SD CARD and insert the card into the module's slot - the new firmware will be updated automatically and the file renamed ovms3.done to signify completion.

This firmware 3.1.005 release also includes a new feature to check for and automatically update to newly available firmware, every night (so long as the vehicle is connected to WiFi). After updating to 3.1.005, you can enable this for future firmware releases with 'config ota auto yes'.

Thank you for your support of the project.

SOLVED: Firmware Update not appearing in "Flash from Web"

If you don't see an available Firmware for Update, you should "Reboot" the module---the available update will appear (it may be the same version you are currently running).
I'm running Firmware v.3.1.004 and tried to use the web interface to attempt to update to v.3.1.005 and on the web interface the "available:" option on the Firmware Update is -blank-, no Firmware update is available for "Flash from Web".
